How frustrating is Levi Stadium.

If KSU had more seating in the endzones with a full connection to the east side, it would be rather Levi's Stadium-ish.
Yeah Levi's definitely looks cobbled together over time. Fun fact, they have sunscreen dispensers on the concourse there!

BSFS is a good college football stadium Levi's Stadium is completely unacceptable for a new NFL and national event facility.

The sunscreen is cool, Children's Mercy Park has them as well. I'd prefer cocoa butter dispensers but oh well, maybe they have those at Mercedes-Benz Arena :dunno:

Levi's was specifically designed to have as many high dollar seats in the lower seating bowl and suites and clubs in near proximity as possible.

It's not the design, it's the fact that it's in a shitty location and in a region that gives no real Eff's about college sports.

Anything coming from you about stadiums starts and ends with unpainted walls still under construction.    Sorry (not really) for the tough love.

yes, k-state has no history whatsoever of getting 85% of the way through a facilities project and then doing a trash-ass job of finishing it. But keep going on about how great the design is of the stadium that everyone agrees has a garbage design!

it's like the people building levi stadium thought "hmm, what other stadium should we look at for inspiration??" and one guy was like "how about Brown Stadium!?" and someone else said "No! what about Cornell's Schoellkopf Field?!" and then Mr. Levi said "guys, guys, you're both right!" and then they took that idea and pumped it full of money.

Never been, but I've heard that the parking/logistics of getting in and out are completely awful.

Please point to me a specific instance under FKSUADJC that a "half ass" job was done on a facilities project? 

I never said it was a "great" design.

I didn't say half-assed. Said 85%.

The outside is wonky, and being what?  2 counties away is silly.   But I don't see anything wrong with the seating layout.   If you need mega high end customers to pay the bills in an outdoor stadium, they'll probably be more designs like Levi's Stadium.

Indeed. What a garbo location. 53 minutes w/o traffic from downtown SF. Do BART trains even travel that far south?

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.

no

I went to a soccer game once and took Bart to the last stop in the East Bay and then a shitty shuttle bus the rest of the way going there and Amtrak coming back. Amtrak is actually pretty nice and there is a stop right at the stadium but it takes you to Oakland, not SF.

Not sure how close Caltrain gets but I'm pretty sure you need to transfer to another train or bus. Haven't parked but I think it's usually like $80

they also put the luxury boxes on the west side and the east side has most of the sun facing seats where it really gets hot.  And there is something weird about the heat in that corner of the Bay, I've been to quite a few unbearable Stanford games where the actual temp is only like 75 degrees. I don't get it.

I didn't realize they actually designed the stadium to be at Candlestick Park (very cool and windy) and when they moved to Santa Clara they just plopped the exact same design in a much warmer spot

i wonder if part of the reason why the put it where they did has to do with the enormous amount of available cheap land in the bay area?

ucla to the rose bowl is about an hour too

Oh boy. Thanks for the details. I was hoping you would chime in on this one.

The reno of Hard Rock Stadium was centered around covering the upper levels with a roof.

I agree. I've even been to a few SF Giants games actually in downtown when it was in the 70's and totally roasted.

What do you guys think of Northwestern's basketball reno? They gutted their old arena completely, apparently, and rebuilt the inside to be pretty different. Clearly much updated which looks p. sexy. Also they kept their old perpendicular alignment of the court to the beams, so this is still very much another arena like Hinkle Fieldhouse/Alabama's Arena/Tulsa's Arena that runs perpendicular to the direction its roof shape would imply.

For reference, here's what it looked like until a few years ago:


Here's what it looks like now.

Very similar to Minnesota’s Williams Arena, but on a smaller scale.  Very nice.  Not a big fan of the sight-obstructing beems though.
