    JT Plans

    FP&M has placed the plans for the east concourse and some of the plans for the S. endzone, on their projects website (go to JT east concourse, bid, drawings to see other plans).

    Lower Decks
    Upper Decks

    According to the plans, the total seating area (excluding press box and handicap) for the stadium after expansion will be 52,382.

    S lower deck- 7,730- planned
    S upper deck- 5,620- planned
    E lower deck- 10,706-current
    E upper deck- 8,940- current
    W lower deck- 9,232- current
    W upper deck- 8,788- current
    Lower suites- 926- current
    Club section- 440- current

    EDIT- links for upper and lower deck not working, I've attached them below at post #9 or you can click on "projects website" above and follow the path.

    I'd rather have a stadium that size continuously full rather than a caveronous stadium that is half empty most weekends. Oregon, who prints money, built a smaller stadium and it works great for them.

    I don't follow. What would you propose, having a 60,000 or 70,000 seat stadium that's half empty?

    52,000 is fine for now. Get some wins, fill it up to that capacity, then think about expanding even further in the future.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Yes. Oregon prints money. They don't need a big stadium.

    You don't build a broad fan base without having seats to put butts into.

    With this plan, to expand to even 60K, we'd either have to rip out the (just built) south end zone, or tear back the Jacobsen Building.

    Planned obsolescence is a bad thing.

    Or a second deck over the Jacobsen building


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Not sure why the links don't work but here are the .pdf's for the upper and lower decks.

    Pretty sure the Jacobsen Bldg is too close. They'd have to scale it back, at the least for supports.

    That would be awesome.

    I think we should add seats above the pressbox, only accessible by stairs or a ladder. It would be a good place to stick hawkeye and husker fans.

    Hell yes! I was sure that I was the only person who thought that would be a sweet idea! We're a freaking engineering school; surely we can make that structurally viable. Like everyone else, I can't see the posted plans, but I've always thought that having an unbroken ring of seating as our upper deck would be incredible!

    Also, after looking at the one rendering posted in this thread: crap! There's a wall at the top of the hill! We're going to have to figure out how to reroute our gate-opening sprint!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Yes, they have. I saw construction trailers already set up in the south parking lots on Saturday.

    Re: JT Plans

    The first PDF says: "Total Population - 53,004 occupants" and doesn't appear to include the press tower.

    Add the two remaining north hills, and you're still looking at 58,000+.
