Tangential (?) related, and of course, pics don't capture the scale, but the excavation taking place for the Moody Center is pretty impressive. There's a good drop from street level on the Dedman side, but the amount of earth moved shearing off a hillside towards Red River is a damn cliff.

 

 

Yea, the thing to remember about the arena is it has a capital view corridor so they had to bury a good portion of it so it barely fits.

They might have changed that after all the dumb criticism about the logo in the stadium looking like a uterus. Newsflash: The logo has always looked like a uterus. 

What’s wrong with a nice uterus?

Looks like they're getting ready to pour cement for the field-level patio.9778522625760af55e1cb27f84572eb2.jpg

That goofy fucking Longhorn head is actually kind of growing on me. DKR tends to get knocked for being a bit generic, this feels kookily college football.

Fill it up with fans and no one cares, it's going to be gorgeous and finally look like a stadium we deserve.

I don’t think the camera is centered. Doesn’t solve your problem but hopefully it actually is centered.

I got out my slide rule and it's within tolerance.

Cool thing is this will be ready by the next game. Probably earlier now that there won’t be a peaky 2020 to work around. 
mlb is proving that out right now.

Fuck the haters, I like it.  Bevo needs to enter the stadium from the Bevo head too.

Hmmm.  Recursive Bevo.  I like the way you think.

Ummm, he’s referring to “The Gap,” the architectural version of orange pants, capes, Childs should starts, idoit, Sam Bradford seems like he kinda sucks, etc. But instead of one tiny, inexplicable gap, we will now have two giant ones.

When it's finished, they should christen it with a concert.

Please tell me that they’ll be able to turn the new LED stadium lights off and let that longhorn cutout pulse burnt orange as part of the pre game build up.

Nice.  Bonus getting the progress on the Moody in the background.  It may not mirror the NEZ, but it sure looks better than the renderings so far.

Nope. It’s just wrong. Wrong scale, wrong style. Nicer than what was there for sure, but still looks “unfinished.”  I imagine a field view would yield a better perspective.

I don't think many would be happy unless they had matched the NEZ, which indeed would have looked better.

However, I believe the capacity of the stadium would have been around 115,000 if they would have gone that route.  That is just too damn big of a stadium.  How often would it sellout?  How many empty seats would there be for South Florida or Tulsa?

 Not really. That 115 number assumes that you build out the lower deck as seating. That could have been done as lockerooms, scoreboard, terraces etc while maintaining the approximate bowl shape and continuity of suites and upper deck above. 

This was a get something done now project.

I was hoping they would wrap the upper deck, but what was below the deck could have been a stack of clubs and suites or something. Maybe even just how it is but with the upper deck wrapping around the SE corner. Maybe that would look like shit or isn’t really possible with the footprint they had to work with, but I’ll never know because in typical Texas fashion they made all the decisions behind the scenes and announced the plan like it was the best and only choice.

Agree. It’s not just right, but so far better than the artists’ version and that’s the best perspective we have seen so far. I’m looking toward to a full overhead. 
 

interesting that the shape matches the diagram in the the campus planning document. I thought the orange crescent was an approximation, but it is going to be pretty close to the map. They could have matched the NEZ bowl and used all seats rather than bleachers. The seats that do have on NEZ are great. Maybe someday they will take that pitch all the way around the bowl and it will all match.
