    Go for it. I attempted to myself but lost interest. Maybe I'll try it again.

    Sorry, I wish I did. I just know what the big wigs tell me, which isn't a lot most of the time. When I find a time frame out I will be sure to let everyone know.

    I had had made that model back around '08 I believe. Since then the plan has obviously changed, but I ended up doing the north end zone video board as well.

    Funny thing is is that I did create a animated fly-through of that original concept...I posted it on YouTube and a link made it on cyclonefanatic. Within a couple days the video had over 10,000 views...go figure. Shortly after the link was on here though, someone from the ADs office messages me and asked that I take the video down. They thought somehow the architect's concepts at that time had been leaked and they didn't want fans/potential donors to think the model and animation was an official video. Not wanting to ruffle any feathers, I complied and took the video down. But the original model remains on the sketchup warehouse.

    What did the North End Zone Board cost? I was thinking it was a lot more then 2.3. Where the support beams what cost so much? I would think the SEZ board would cost something similar plus the cost of the ribbon. For some reason I was thinking the board itself was around 5 million?!?! I don't remember.

    Yea, I think the $2.3 mill is pretty much just the cost of the board, everything else is in the bids going out for the south end zone project.

    Even with the stadium addition, I think Baylor will have the best stadium in the Big 12, but if A&M was still in the conference it would be them however.

    If you are fan number 45,001 wanting to get into the stadium to watch a game you might not think the stadium is quite so great.

    This is me randomly hoping in this thread, did I hear somewhere that the SEZ videoboard will be similar size dimensions with the NEZ scoreboard?

    Pollard has already said the new SEZ video board will be "very similar" to the NEZ one we already have. So to answer your question Yes!

    It would be cosmetic, so probably will not be done because of the cost. But, imagine if the vertical steel understructure beams were faced with concrete panels that matched the rest of JTS's external surfaces. Cosmetic pillars, similar in appearance to those around the exterior of Hilton. Would really add to the appearance, I'd think.

    Nevertheless, imho, we're going to wind up with a fine stadium. Other places are building new because those schools have little choice, their buildings were so far outdated. Minnesota's big old Memorial 'U', for example. Our digs will be pretty snazzy. They won't be embarrassing to me; I guess others here feel differently, though.

    Remember, when JP first arrived and he issued building concept updates? One of the graphics illustrated glassing in Hilton's exterior vertical supports to create a large concourse under Hilton's roof overhang. Probably too expensive to ever be done, unless it can be justified by expanded interior seating, maybe. To my little mind, Hilton's exterior is the most impressive college basketball arena in the nation. Add the glass, and wow.

    Anyone have a link to Hilton with the glass enclosure?

    Google is your friend http://www.cyclones.com/PhotoAlbum.d...00&PALBID=7510

    Edit: I'm glad you brought the old Hilton renovation up. After looking through the pictures again does anybody else think the new SEZ renderings look a lot alike the renderings for the Hilton renovations? Obviously they will scrap the practice facility but maybe there is still a plan on the long term horizon to renovate Hilton and dig up those old plans for the 2006 project! That would look amazing if they blended Hilton and JTS together like that!
