    ***Off Season Fodder Part II***

    A little sequel to last season's hit. Why? Because, why not? The facade for the south endzone concourse and entrance area isn't terribly inspiring in my opinion, but I do like the shape of the structure and it is loosely based on some old renders. Do you like the stadium with or without the colored bleachers?

    And I tried to get some landscape in but the dang thing just wouldn't render (sorry MissouriCyclone).

    I do believe I prefer the cardinal and gold colored seats...

    That is something I have noticed that makes the Jack look run down. The colored sections look faded without the concrete painted. Also the benches are faded compared to the current south end zone seats.

    Re: ***Off Season Fodder Part II***

    I like the idea of "doing up" the south facade. The stadium really doesn't have a true facade- it's all wide open exposed construction for the most part. I do wonder if Pollard doesn't have something like this in mind. He made a statement on the radio once about the importance of making sure we get that south facade right because it, in combination with Reiman Gardens, serves as a key gateway to the university.

    I agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment. Making a statement on the south end would go a long ways towards improving the overall aesthetic appeal of the stadium.

    Very nice, I like a lot. Can you add a big time press box to it because that is likely going to be done in the near future as well. Also for fun can you put a 30 foot tall statue of Jack trice near the entrance of the South Endzone :)

    Re: ***Off Season Fodder Part II***

    Will the top deck be phase 2? Or must it be done all at once?

    What I would assume is that the lower level would be done over an off season and then the next year the upper level would be the following year
