I wouldn’t exactly call it a secret contract

Stadium chatter over on the Phog:

True but HNTB is no slouch. Arizona State's stadium looks great. Michigan, LSU, Kentucky have used them for renos and locker room enhancements. They didnt forget how to build/complete stadium renovations, they were likely just hampered by khakis and his grand vision to make it look like that dump in Manhattan.

Quote
Read the article. It mentions a 5 year FUNDRAISING period. Holy *****, we are really still at least 5 years from even breaking ground on phase 1? FFS

Quote
5 years? How can KU suck this bad? Oh ya...arrogance, incompetence, and corruption. Meanwhile, look at how much KSU has raised. It really bugs me that KSU is that much better at building a fb program than KU.

Quote
Based on attendance at the end of the season, we should be able to work on half the stadium at the same time during the season. Then work the other half during the next
:ROFL:

Quote
Sounds like we are 10 years away from being close to the dump in Manhattan. Lol. By then they will have moved ahead.

Quote
Yeah that looks cool. If that was looking south in memorial it would block the hill

Quote
Do you realize what a dump Notre Dame stadium was before it was renovated

Quote
I'm more interested in seeing they're plan for the baseball stadium honestly

Wow, that thread is a whole lot of laughs.  Their inflated ego's and self entitlement attitude (stolen from a previous post) are why I don't feel bad for them as a whole.

They now have a thread on the Phog discussing whether their new OC is going to be hired as OC at Auburn. Absolutely incredible group of people over there.

Any list that ranks college football stadiums consistently ranks Memorial piss hole as one of the worst in the country.   BSFS is usually in the top 50.  I hope I never become so delusional to defy reason like that.

They're shitting on other P5 stadiums and the gameday/stadium experiences that most have never even experienced.... to make Memorial out to not be the worst, they're delusional.

BSFS is getting there no doubt, and I know there was a donor push for this south EZ project, but I actually think it's somewhat missing an opportunity that could've made BSFS one of the best little stades in the country, without adding capacity or much cost. But oh well.

All KSU needs to do to the football stadium is cover everything in limestone and not increase capacity to keep me happy.

If they put $1 worth of limestone on the east, it is way too much money worth of limestone.

That thing needs to be imploded in the next 10-15 years, to both drop capacity and complete the stadium with whatever structure is needed to fit future demands/fan amenities.

Blow up and redo the upper deck.

Wipe out the upper deck and put in club seating

the upper deck/east side isn't going anywhere.

will in-stade beer sales hurt demand for all these club seats, because i'm sure we'll have that sooner than later.

To be fair, they should be worried about any remotely competent coach or even incompetent coach wanting to get the hell out of Lawrence ASAP.
