    I'm honestly surprised it took this long. I thought it would begin by page 4. I was actually hoping to be the first to start making awful jokes about how great it will be to watch a 3 win team from the new club seats.

    But yes, this is legitimately exciting.

    Why would they give people that are sitting in the end zone first chance at the club section? Not hating but just seems odd to me.

The third floor which houses TV, radio, coaches boxes, game day ops and visiting AD is absolute crap. Our press box is the definition of upgrading as you are able. It fits the need but it is very easy to see the short comings. As we upgrade and build the rest of our facilities to a higher standard the tower will become more of an eye sore compared to the rest of the facilities.

    Why not? They are being displaced. Give them a shot first. How many of those $175 season ticket holders do you expect to take the jump to paying $750 each PLUS the required donation to sit in those seats?

    Pretty safe to say that there will be plenty of End Zone Club seats after they purchase theirs if they wish.

    I'm thrilled that the response has been so positive. That's really all that matters...but the outside is glass...glass. Nebraska, KSU, OSU, pretty much everyone builds awesome stone entrances and we get a second coming of the Jacobson building. Ahh, I'm just disappointed. I thought the 2008 renderings were amazing, can't say I'm in love with what was released today. That said I'm sure I'll love everything when I walk in fall of 15'.

    Zooming in... it looks like the stairs come up to those open areas... they most likely represent the tunnell/access from below to get the seats in those sections.

    Basically, it is the opening of the stairs to go down into the concourse. In real like there is stuff behind there like concession stands but they probably skipped rendering that stuff so it acts as "open" so it will just show the sky behind it. In a better rendering or in real life it would barely be noticeable because of shadows. There is barely any shadowing in this rendering.

    Heres to hoping that they dont waste 1/2 the new video screen with Istate logos on both sides. I know its on the renderings, but you might as well have a smaller screen, or at least advertisers.

    While I understand that, what they went with is what we can afford, and the design will mach the design language we have going on in the area. Aka Jacobson and Bergstrom Complex. If you did something too radical with stone, it would look really out of place with the Jake and the rest of Jack Trice being concrete. You'd need to do a whole new facade and that would be very expensive

    It is a clean way to present them though...

    The interior rendering is just not very good. I'm surprised it was released with the others, which are well done. Looking forward the video fly-through.
