    South end of the stadium?

    Is this going to be built up or is it not? I thought that is what they were doing last year, but it never seemed to happen. Can someone explain why and when this is supposed to happen.

    Everybody wants it, but they want someone else to pay for it.

    If you pay for it, they will gladly build it.

    Itll happen eventually. Likely after we put in our new video board\sound system on the other end.

    They're going to do it during the two weeks we're on the road in Austin and Norman. It should be ready to go for the Kansas game according to JP.

    Re: South end of the stadium?

    I'm still confused, what happend to the plans? Did the fact that our country is in a recession make it not happen? Do we still have plans to make this happen?

    It really hinges on a big donor stepping up to do it. There were rumors it was set to happen, but the recession may have delayed this.

    that was just to trick recruits, notice it didn't work too well.

    Re: South end of the stadium?

    It will happen after we have a person step up to the plate and donate the $20 million needed to do it (or is that just to start it?). The plans are sitting around collecting dust waiting for that to happen.

    Reading between the lines on jamie's quotes in the paper recently, and in the AD 5 year review, it sounds like it to me (instead of 'we hope to do this', or 'this is planned', using 'i know we'll have this'.. sound as firm as it gets without an official announcement). If they were going to put it in the south endzone, theyd have to do it with the south bowl, but theyre talking about doing it before that now (which makes sense, its a very needed update).

    Also, personally, i think north makes more sense, as when we eventually do bowl in the south end, that end will be able to see the video board without turning around.

    Why add more seats if they wont be filled up? Nebraska and Iowa seem to bring the most traveling fans and Nebraska will not be in the Big 12 next season.

    We do fill it up - the hill side seating has a good crowd every game. The bowled section would replace those. The question is, when people have to get a seat, do they charge more for a ticket?
