    ECU's New Endzone Seats Collapse

    There has been a bunch of discussion on the forum the last few days about Jack Trice and future additions/improvements. Yesterday on the local news here in North Carolina there was a story about some bleachers collapsing on the new edition (bowled-in endzone) at ECU's Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

    Newspaper version: Spectators injured at ECU game - East Carolina - NewsObserver.com

    TV version with video: ECU Bleachers Collapse - News Story - WCTI12 New Bern.

    When (and I emphasize when) we bowl in the south endzone we need to do it right so we don't get embarassed (or sued) over an incident like this.

    You mean to say that a bunch of people jumping on aluminum bleachers would cause them to collapse...nooooo

    It looks like maybe just the seat parts of the bleachers came off when people were jumping on them. Still pretty bad, but not like the whole structure collapsing.

    Your idea doesn't make a good headline, so it clearly must be wrong.

    I've seen bleachers come off in the student section. Pretty funny.
