'Croots always take a liking to facilities and such. I sure as hell hope the football facility being opened within the next month will help us close on some last second good recruits. It sure as hell can't hurt.

and here is a link with several construction pics of the reno and expansion for those that didnt see in on sps last week. looks pretty damn good....im happy with the progress and the fact that they are largely starting from scratch regarding the stadium innards.

you can really start to see the footprint of the expansion with the west ez tower going up parallel to the street....looking forward to seeing it action.

how many seats are they adding exactly?

I think the expansion will add around 10k, but they removed 2-3k of existing..... so I think capacity will be bumped from 55k to around 62k.

No troll, but I thought y'all really were supposed to exceed our capacity?

The Vaught has an official capacity of 60,580. I believe the renovated DWS will be around 62k. You do the math.

anybody with a genespage account wanna post the pics of the update taken on 4/12/13? maybe in the private group if its a privacy issue....thats one thing the dude does well.....stalk buildings. his practice facility pics didnt require a subscription, but the renovation/expansion does.

also, the terrace area, how many people yall think we can fit up there? an extra k or so? is that intended to be like an in-stadium tailgating area? that would be tits.

Ah I was thinking ours was 62k for some reason

I think that's ya'lls record attendance, which normally will exceed the capacity by a couple K. Ours is like 57 or 58 something, regardless of a 55 capacity.

      I think the simplest indicator is the popular vote, which you lost by 3 million  how come Hillary actually paid a price for calling people deplorables, but nothing happens to Trump for anything he says? because conservatives are phony amoral hypocrites
