    And the parts that are seats without backs look even weaker from across the way when you see them next to the sections with backs. You are only seeing a little of the color and a lot of gray concrete. That makes it look even worse than it already is.

    Those are the ones I was thinking about. They have seemed pale, especially from a distance, for as long as I remember.

    So those would have probably been the old plastic (maybe fiberglass?) bleachers.

    They're due for some new paint. No big deal.
    I don't think its the paint that's the big issue. I think its the dirty concrete. Either way I agree that it'd be beneficial if they could make look better.

    Just an update from the regents meeting. Scoreboard equipment purchase approved as expected. Next meeting is in Ames in June. I would expect to see drawings/designs by then.

    Re: SEZ information

    Any idea why they would need individual approval for the sound and video board?

    I would think that's just a line item on the overall project.

    Or is there some installation on a different schedule than the SEZ?

    Maybe helps Daktronics get started a bit earlier on design and fabrication work? Or maybe because it wasnt considered in the scope of the original proposal so they got additional approval for this?

    Im most interested to see if we get the ribbon board element too, i think if we could get a ribbon board running in JTS it would do a lot by itself to improve some things.

    Edit: this might be the reason why:

    Approval of the sole source authorization would permit the University to engage Daktronics in discussions during the design phases of the project to coordinate the support structure, power
    requirements, and other items. The scoreboard will not be purchased prior to the Board acting
    upon the University’s request for approval of the schematic design and budget for the project.

    My guess is that it's the same installation schedule but since it will be done through Daktronics and not the construction company, it needs separate approval.

    Re: SEZ information

    Thanks fellas. That makes sense.

    Was kinda hoping that it would somehow fast-track some of the equipment in time for 2014, although I knew it was unlikely.

    Agreed. This is a bit overdue IMO. The boards on the upper deck are "adequate" at best. I was a fairly skeptical of the ribbon at Hilton when it was first announced. Now I can't imagine the games without it.

    Cant wait for the drawings of this, hopefully it looks super awesome, but you can't make everyone happy.

    When the plans are finally made public, I predict that at least 40% of CFers will be upset, no matter what.

    Unless they include hottubs in the plans.

    Can the new plans include beer taps at each seat?

    The people have spoken! Give them what they want!

    Can we add hotel rooms to the plan? Reading reviews about the accommodations at the Union hotel and there's room for a higher end experience. Stumble out of your room and right into the game. I'd shack up at JTS

    Walkout balconies with Stadium view?

    Certainly would be unique.
