Are there plans to demolish Mike Myers? Our players need a quick path to the practice fields.

Fuck soccer and track.

Machinator posted this in the spring football thread a couple days ago. Very exciting. Maybe we'll finally sound like 100,000

2.3 PROJECT DESCRIPTION, SCOPE AND BUDGET: The University of Texas at Austin seeks to build an expansion to the Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium to replace the existing South End zone bleachers and existing video display with a new South End Zone, video display, and renovate portions of the adjacent MoncriefNeuhaus Athletic Center. This project is a part of Texas Athletics’ ongoing efforts to expand and upgrade their current facilities to provide the best facilities and services for their student athletes, fans, and staff with a critical eye to the latest in student athlete safety, well-being, and rehabilitation. The scope of this project is proposed to include new exclusive suites, clubs, open air concourses, restroom facilities, new coaches offices, a banquet kitchen, premium, Loge, and student seating, private game-day parking, branding graphics, Longhorn Network areas, Sports Medicine/Nutrition areas, hydrotherapy, and other support spaces. The preliminary Total Project Cost (TPC) for this project is $140,000,000. The TPC includes a Construction Cost Limitation (CCL) for the Construction Manager at Risk of $100,000,000. Fees, furnishings, equipment, other work, miscellaneous expenses, and contingencies make up the balance of the TPC.

After we start winning next season we'll have loads of cash sitting around

Yup.  And disband the football team and focus all of those resources on becoming the best college hockey team in the country!

CDC said no grass for now.... so when?

2021 could be a GOALDEN YEAR..... cuckmaster baggins will be entering his 4th year with no titles at all, and aggy will not have "more seats" than the sips...... and they are out of gas and out of runway.  it's going to burn them alive.

..... also the overhangs at pyle are entirely cosmetic and do nothing to hold in sound because The Zone and The Dish capture and radiate sound up and away from the field.... at least... until The Dish collapses from a Sandstrorm Harmonic attack..... prediction on the number of dead:

twelve hundred and twelve.

The stadium will be half empty instead of a quarter empty.

I thought y'all were going to put those resources to Quidditch?

So you're saying it's a trap?

yip.  they are going to fucking melt the fuck down T-1000 molten vat of boiling iron style.

They won’t meltdown, just overreact and add seats to stairs and seats on top of seats and seats in aisles and bathrooms so that they have more.

I'll be shocked if they add a ton of new seats.   Really doesn't make sense to add anything other than premium seating

Hm... What is the completion date?

Will there be a public release of the design prior to construction?

I thought it was stupid when the ags added capacity and it will be stupid if we do it also.  We should add premium seats / suites but NOT add overall capacity.   If we want to build the south stands in a permanent fashion to look more like the rest of the stadium (except west upper deck) that's great.  Sure there will be more demand once we are winning more consistently but in general less people are attending games across the sports landscape and if we think we are exempt to that and add seats we should get used to something like this in all but the biggest of games in the best of years.

We should definitely add more capacity for the wine and cheese crowd that occasionally glances at the action on the field from the climate controlled sealed suite.

Maybe we're moving everyone over 75 to the south end zone

I would expect the majority of new seats in the bowled in section to be premium seating, while eventually expanding leg room for the rest of the stadium attendees...

This right here.

They need to add whatever they need to add to lower ticket prices. Don't think that stadium modifications will have anything to do with it, but the real hardcore fans can't afford to go to games and they wonder why half the crowd shows up and doesn't pay attention to the game...

From what I can tell, the document says they're adding some premium and student seating, but most will be filled up with suites and coaches offices overlooking the field, a hydrotherapy pool, and some other training offices. It also says they're removing the Godzillatron, but doesn't specify replacing it, or putting it back up.

Most of the south side will be suites, club, and premium seating. We will lose a good deal of sections 1 and 32 to wrap, so I’d expect capacity to remain mostly static. If we do add capacity, we’d likely counter it by changing benches to chair backs elsewhere in the stadium. 

Nobody gives a shit if capacity is higher than aggy, except aggy. Even we only care in so much as watching their conniption over it. 

in summation, enclosed space, more high end seating, more club seating and common area, less GA seating, net neutral overall seating.
