IIRC, that stadium was $5 billion to build, aka 2.5x Jerry World?

$5 billion and it didn't even get them a Shamrock Zone, LMFAO.

Those of us who have the Internet and know how to use it have had a sneak peak on these new stadiums for months.

Maryland’s xfinity Center is 100% chair backs which is interesting

I was somewhat surprised when I moved to Kansas and discovered both colleges don't have 100% chairback arenas. Reed Arena (awful venue) at A&M is all chairbacks too.

The OOD and the piss barn aren't all seaters for two reasons.
1. The seating bowls haven't been renovated since new ADA rules.
2. Going all seats will reduce capacity, pre pandemic it would be foolish for either building to reduce capacity. K-State reduced capacity a decade ago, but added revenue because the reduction in capacity was to add premium seating.

K-State will be making extensive renovations to the ood seating bowl within the next 5 years, we'll see if they take the benches out then. I don't know if ADA compliance will force them to. Koch Arena became an all seater when they renovated.

OOD needs to work on blue hair access.  State is losing a ton of season ticket holders due to age as they try to get up and down the steps.

There's a lot of love and hate for Williams Arena. Its probably 70% chairback now. I went to a game there in early 2019 and I really enjoyed it. It just sounded old, which is neat compared to the "newer" 70s/80s arenas we're used to in college basketball. Some people just hate it tho.

Gene said that if they ever do all the renovations envisioned for Bramlage it will include  floor level or near floor level entry into the seating areas.

Hopefully they piggyback oscar's success with renovations that cut capacity quite a bit, cause once Bruceketball is gone, attendance is going to drop significantly.

Yeah the upper decks actually make all seats pretty close to the floor.

Even Ahearn looked pretty cavernous depending on the photo. Prob 14k crammed into the little rough rider in this one.

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.

Original Ahearn was a seating and fire code abomination.

The Fire Marshall put the kibosh on 14K in there very quickly.

Also the dirt floor and raised basketball court . . . yeesh.

Is that why Bramlage has the widest aisles west of the Mississippi? Making up for the years of not being up to code.

"I know it's an issue now, but I promise we'll build a facility some day that has aisles TWICE as wide as needed to make up for it."

The aisles are wide because all of the entries are at the top, there is no way to enter or exit a section from the middle of it.
