again, i have absolutely no insight into how funding shakes out for something like this, but from a practical standpoint, i can't see how both sides (developer team and temple) wouldn't at least be willing to have a conversation.

now i'm just waiting for someone to tell me exactly how and why i'm wrong B-)
Dude, Temple had a $20M deficit they had to fill because they gave out too much financial aid this fiscal year. The school president lost his job over it.

Now you want them to find another $20M to fund this project. Where do you see this money coming from?
