Just trying to confirm that once you cross the bridge heading towards JTS can you "exit" off the bridge and go down into the parking lots or do you have to enter into the Stadium?

It’s been mentioned that there’s a ramp outside the Trice fence. And, iirc, stairs in both towers.

I'm pretty sure there options at the end of the bridge you can take, so you don't have to go directly into the stadium.

That should answer all of the questions about the new layout.

The existing stairs are still there. The bridge just splits them in that grassy area between them.

Really feel like they need to do something to the area between the stadium and Majors. Some landscaping would go a long way to make this area look better.

Last few years I have thought this area just felt like that back corner of your yard you dump stuff, they really could make it look and feel a lot better.

Wish I had a back yard that looked like that...

Yeah agree. I know they tried to make it like natural prairie, but it just turned out bad.

I mean, how many people actually even see that area? You can’t see it from the road and I doubt many people go in through that gate. I feel like with the walkway around Jacobson now, they could make that exit only and that’s just for fire code issues.

Im guessing recruits see it, when they are on/touring the Practice fields.

Makes the stadium look unkept from that side.
