    Re: Arizona State's stadium renovations...WTF

    Well that is interesting. I was on their campus a few weeks ago on our baseball teams spring trip. Went to the ASU-Texas Tech Baseball game, which is right next to the football field. Thought it was cool how the stadium was built into a mountain, but I think this will take away from that look.

    Dont think I would want to be in the upper rows of this oven. I know its in the shade but it is still outside in the heat.

    Agreed, ive been there a couple times, this will take away from the distinctive feel it had.

    This. Yes you keep the sun out but the extreme heat will get trapped in. It's going to cost a ton of money and take years to complete...I just don't think it's a wise investment. If they want to play day games in September, they'll have to build a new stadium with a retractable roof, that's the only way they could effectively deal with the heat...this canopy thing is going to kind of look like a joke

    No kidding. All of that body and outside heat is going to be trapped in that thing. I would think it makes the whole place hotter.

    Maybe they will allow a topless rule for the upper section.

    Only as long as they place the student section in the same area.

    I think that would make it hotter.

    Remember AZ is a much dryer heat. The effect of heat being 'trapped' is significantly lessened with a lower humidity. Plus, people may augment the cooling effect by misting themselves and letting the dry air evaporate it.

    However, the first haboob to come along may rip off the entire structure.
