    UNLV unveils plans for new stadium

    Maybe this is why Louvan Green chose UNLV over us?

    Neon Desert | ENR: Engineering News Record | McGraw-Hill Construction


    Interesting, looks like it is mostly covered by a dome, but still open air. It is on campus, so hopefully will be a little easier to get to than Sam Boyd when we play there again in 2020.

    Wow, must be nice to have a co-owner of the Lakers as a booster. Sam Boyd was a dump and in a dumpy area. They still won't have 20k fans at games unless the opponent brings a crowd.

    That is a hideous design. The only way to go is Modern Retro, similar to how Major League Baseball parks started going 15 years ago.

    Gaahhh! I think I just burst an artery. Maybe it's just jealousy, but ***dammit! UNLV is building an entirely new stadium that looks like it can launch satellites, and they play in the Mtn West! Meanwhile, ISU struggles to even bowl in their 30 year old structure. I know the funds aren't there, and what little Big XII money ISU receives needs to be allocated carefully, but something NEEDS to be done about Jack Trice in the next five years.

    Whew, I feel a lot better after that outburst. Carry on.

    Maybe because its unLV? I imagine New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming probably won't be getting a new stadium like that anytime soon.

    Hideous, gaudy, loud, completely ridiculous....... a perfect fit in the LV landscape.

    I think it's cool - here are a couple more angles of it:

    Event Center - Aeiral View

    Event Center - Football Mode

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
