Stadium looks nice, but what's with the music in that video?

Yes, what in the world?

Also why are the stands so far away from the field?

It's also built to accommodate soccer...probably a couple other sports too.

CSU is going to play soccer in a 42,000 seat stadium?

No, soccer has their own stadium which is much much smaller.  I don't remember why, but it was brought up that they wanted to make sure the new stadium could support other sports like soccer.  Like someone else said, the pictures/video probably make the field seem further away than it really is.  We have an open house scrimmage this Saturday so I'll be able to confirm because I know you all are dying to know.

That's just for that area.  There are others.  Plus, this doesn't account for the 'donation' required for seats.  Here's a link to the other VIP areas.  https://stadium.colostate.edu/vip/

Here's another article that shows how "poor" CSU fans are.

What's going in the end zone without stands?

It's the New Belgium Porch, a VIP area.  From the CSU site:

"The New Belgium Porch
Few experiences will rival enjoying Rams Football amidst the lively atmosphere of the New Belgium Porch. Located in the north end zone, the area boasts two premium bars and a field level drink rail just yards away from the action. Look no further than the New Belgium Porch for a unique way to experience Fort Collins’ craft beer scene and Rams football altogether!

Passes to the New Belgium Porch are $200 each (Donation).
Fans are able to reserve the same number of memberships as they have premium or priority season tickets. A portion of your donation may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor."

$200 to watch a mid major play soccer and be forced to drink fat tire? LMFAO

We need more Big 12 teams to visit our new stadium.  Texas Tech is the only one with a big enough sack to take up the challenge so far...

Texas Tech has visited everyone's stadium though.  They're kind of a slut, tbh.

Carta-Samuels picks CSU over UCLA

https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/washington-graduate-transfer-qb-k-j-carta-samuels-spurns-ucla-for-colorado-state/

Dude wasn't going to get any playing time at UCLA. Mediocre grad transfers want time on the field, other wise they would sit on the bench where they were.

Jealous. Would love $38mill to go toward another reno and to get Bill's name off the stadium at the same time (can put his name on the field, I guess).

That is pretty nice actually.

Mike, I'm going to be in the area in May and if time allows was hoping to do some stadium creeping.  Is it easy to do there or do they have the place locked up?

lol what's your beef with Bill's name on the stadium?  plenty of stadiums are named after coaches.  few did as much for the university as Snyder.

LHC Bill Snyder Field at KanEquip Stadium. Find lots of bags to hold all the money or get zero money and continue to inflate Bill's ego into thinking his son is the only one capable of running the program?

"Mike McCoy with the hard earned 5 yard run to get the cats into the Case IH redzone on LHC Bill Snyder field here at KanEquip Stadium, GOOD FOR A WILDCAT..." :CHA-CHING:

"Brent Venables really has these cats running around on LHC Bill Snyder Field at KanEquip Stade, back to you Wyatt" "Thanks, Chilidog Matt." :CASH CHECK SOUND:
