Whoa, having seen this new rendition, I'm okay with no longer having a bridge over Kimball... though that would still be awesome.

Also, the stadium, trees, and road/entrance work that's been done over the past year look absolutely fantastic as you come to the stadium from the west.

You guys are so blessed that you have all this space to work with. I've heard some first-hand accounts that it all looks great.

If they could throw up some end caps to the east stadium it doesn't seem like it would have to cost that much and could really help appearances.

I’m fine w/ the T-shape in the latest rendo. Still think two fields bumped up against Vanier, basically flush w/ the practice facility would be best.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

The whole area does look really good now and looks like it’s set to just keep getting better. The football to baseball to soccer drive/walk down college ave is great. Baseball and soccer are really well done a super close to the street. Our sports complex area that will have everything (football, baseball, track, soccer, volleyball, rowing, rec complex, practice fields, training tables, crap tons of parking for all) all in one place is absolutely legit. Absolutely incredible compared to what that area looked liked 20/30 years ago.

I remember when Oklahoma State released their plans for their athletic village and football stadium renovations back during the GRCOAT era and I was super jealous and just accepted that K-State would never have such nice things. Can't believe how far we've come.

The baseball and soccer shades right up on the street with those purple lights is a really slick look.

North campus corridor, more trees in parking lots... pretty wild what it's all going to look like by the end of 2023.

Been too lazy to actually look it up, but what are we wanting to do to update Bramlage? Haven't we like nickeled and dimed that thing to being all the way up to date?

The plans are fluid. I wouldn't say they have nickel & dimed anything. For the most part they've made changes to the concourse. When they eventually make changes to the seating bowl, it's going to cost a eff ton of money because it will need to be brought up to code.

Ok, I mean nickel and dimed is sort of a poor choice of words but in general I consider that in the sense between concourse, videoboards, etc, that is pretty nickly and dimey stuff compared to $85 mil, not that what we did was sub quality.

The $85 mill plan includes blowing out the entire west side of the building and making multi levels with a more premium suite/club level west side. Rumors have also suggested more suites/terraces/viewing areas around the top similarly to how the east side suites are, but who knows.

Supposedly they've shown some pics to some donors or some elites and they referenced similarly how Houston rebuilt the Fertitta center.

Here is a look at what they did:

My recommendation would be the donors roll all this money for the 'Bram into a new head basketball coach. New suites won't fix our problem.

Man, what Houston has done to that place is absolutely insane. I’ve been to it as both a before and an after and I honestly couldn’t believe it was the same place. Good for them. It used to be an enormous dogshit cookie-cutter circular arena piece of crap. Now it looks like one of those wild stades I drew when I was 8 and playing Kid Architect.

Thirty-two years of incredible upgrades. Place looks amazing. I remember playing pickup games with the dorm bros on the old astroturf in 1989. Gates were never locked on the north end zone. Also watching baseball games on shitty left baseline bleachers and picking splinters from my hands.

And some of y'all are worried about a few parking spaces.
