Its happening

Recommended Posts

Fun fact. In 1982, after we lost to SMU1,  I crawled along the top of that wall in an end run around the campus police guarding an ABC Sports banner that was hanging under the previous scoreboard. They were so busy watching the dozens of people that had the same idea to take it that they never turned around to look at it until I was safely under the West side upper deck. I'm still surprised no one that was observing it didn't tell them to turn around. Banner still hangs in my garage.

Craig James caught a touchdown pass and killed five hookers.

It’s going to suck if we can’t see the inside except on tv.  

Pretty sure we will have crowds in the stadium in '21 when the project is complete.

Correct, it's fully erected.  

It's still missing some of the video board mounts and some steel on the top floor of the southwest tower.

I swear I’ve heard his last name pronounced “Del Con-TEE” on things like LHN or radio broadcasts, but it’s “Del Cont?” I’ll be damned.

Ok, here he is with Craig Way, and Way says Del Con-TEE. Maybe I’m mishearing CDC’s in the post above at the stadium. Damn these old ears.

I think it's your hearing.  Mine's getting bad too but I hear a subtle CON-tay in the earlier post.  "Chris Del Conte here..."

Looks like they're installing more precast concrete seating right now.61754ce2b6e8af811a5cb02f0b3c2d44.jpg

Are they sold out?  :}  Is that still going to be the few visitors we allow in to the lower left ?

It’s going to still be an active construction site this year so no one will be sitting there.

Not 100%, but last season visitors were all moved to the upper decks and I’d guess it’s going to stay that way this year too (assuming we have a season).

If you’re asking about the SEZ in general, suites are sold out, but I think some club/bar table seats are still available.

Not sure who will sit in the non club seats.  I would guess the students will shift over and fill in those on the East side since CDC made a big deal about a having a single student section and that would more the visitors to the lower NE corner (they already sat in uppers over there).

We should see the scoreboard panels go up anytime now. The structure for them is up and the season is still technically on.

 

The new main scoreboard isn't that much bigger than the old one since it doesn't seem to be as tall but the side video boards will be nice if they aren't all covered with ads.
