    South End Zone Plans Regents meeting

    So based on the initial release about the $25 million gift the regents were going to give final approval of the project in February. Looking at the Regents schedules the Feb meeting is set for 6-7th in 2 and a half weeks. So I would guess they have at the least the conceptual designs drawn up by now.

    My question is this:
    Which one of you has seen them, and is it awesome? I know there was at least one of you fanatics that are at the design firm. Throw us a freaking bone here.

    Re: South End Zone Plans Regents meeting

    Agenda talks about making south end parking lots green space between the stadium and Reiman Gardens. I know this was discussed as a possibility, but it seems pretty concrete here. Let the parking lot shuffle death match begin!

    Re: South End Zone Plans Regents meeting

    So it is not to exceed $60 million. That doesn't seem like much compared that what I figured they would do. If they are going to match the bottom bowl on each side, East and West, it seems like $60 million would quite do it.

    Potential for a lounge area is mentioned to go along with other premium seating options.

    "The addition of an upper deck to the south end zone will provide an opportunity to increase the
    stadium’s capacity with noticeable aesthetic improvements to the stadium."


    So is there a possibility the SEZ doesn't even get bowled in?

    "The University requests permission to proceed with project planning, including the design

    Zone and Green Space project, which would replace and renovate the existing south end zone
    seating, upgrade the south end zone concourse infrastructure, upgrade the stadium south video
    board and sound system components, and construct additional premium seating (club, suite or

    I'm more concerned about what we'll talk about on here when this is complete.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Interesting that they talk about upgrading the video board. I wonder what exactly that means?
