In an expected administrative move, the San Diego City Council on Monday approved a lease extension for San Diego State football at the former Qualcomm Stadium through 2020. The extension removes uncertainty for the university’s athletic department and for the Alliance of American Football, the new pro football league planning to play home games at San Diego’s former NFL venue in Spring 2019.
The motion to extend SDSU’s lease passed 6-1, with Mission Valley council member Scott Sherman (R-SoccerCity) the lone dissenting vote with two council members absent. Aside from Sherm’s usual water-carrying there did not appear to be much pushback from SoccerCity.

San Diego State football doesn’t often use fan giveaways as a marketing tool. I have a replica Kirk Morrison jersey somewhere and think I got a hat once or twice. If anything, it’s usually some garbage like a poster, magnet or key fob.
So it comes as no surprise that this year’s promotional schedule continues the tradition. There’s not a single thing listed as a giveaway, just a bunch of military appreciation nights, teacher recognition awards and whatnot. We would like to think that with some creativity, passion and a bit more cash, Aztec football’s promotional events could actually be a draw.

I think we can all agree that what this world needed was more speculation and hot takes about San Diego State and Soccer City. Fortunately, I am here to oblige. Don’t all thank me at once.
But hey, at least today we have something approaching actual news to speculate about!
What does this mean? Reading the tea leaves, I think the death rattle of San Diego State’s anti-Soccer City insurgency is at hand.

Congrats to everybody who picked John David Wicker in your SDSU athletic director search pool! Please tweet at to claim your cash prizes. Pay no attention to his denials – he definitely has your money.
The tough thing about analyzing an administrative hire as a sports blogger man-infant is that there’s a bit of a knowledge gap that’s unavoidable. I haven’t watched any CBS Sports telecasts of Wicker meeting with major donors to get them to fund facilitates upgrades. I can’t watch highlights set to Drowning Pool’s “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor” of him lobbying the commissioner of a Power Five conference (though I would watch the SHIT out of that tbh).
All I can to is sift through some of the precious information that’s out there already. What follows is Kabeer Thirty’s due diligence on John David Wicker.
