South End Zone Expansion/Stadium Renovation Thread

Recommended Posts

For those of you like myself who sometimes need to use the ADA seating, they are expanding the seating at field level on both the east and west sides, and also adding four seating platforms: two on each side near the entrance ramps (so about halfway up). So a few seats will be removed to make way for this. This is in addition to the ADA seating in the north end zone.

North end zone scoreboard removal/ new video board about to go up:

The last remnants of the chain-link fence will soon be gone as that will be where the concourses connect. The nearest portion of the photo is where the loading dock will be, which will thankfully now be much more hidden:

Yep they aren't moving it. Sorry.

Although now that there's going to be a video screen in both end zones, I don't really see how there's an issue.

Depends on how they use them.  If they have both boards doing the same thing then not as much of an issue.

Plus, i think the north end zone one is smaller.

It's too bad they won't just put the pole outside the stadium.  Given how tall it is, people could still see the flag.

The north board will be smaller, but both will show the same thing. No different than a basketball game. South will be 40x90 and north will be 20x60 (look at Louisville's for a sense of how big that is).

Just a better way to view all of the renderings, as the IU website's photo gallery feature can often be difficult to work with and view in a high quality. One cool thing about the terrace level is that there will be 2 concession stands: one normal stand, and another one under an overhang in kind of an open grill type set up. And restrooms of course. I believe there will be two elevators and two sets of steps to get up there.

North and south video boards were awarded to Panasonic, we've gone with Daktronics in the past.

The sound system upgrade is now up for bid. I'd link it but there's not really anything you can look at other than a list of what they're wanting to put in, and I'm not a sound guy so I have no idea what any of it means. A lot of times they don't let you look at the plans anymore on the plan room website.

We were able to push teams because of Wilsons offense. The speed threw people off. Allen will run a much slower offense. And with an unproven run game. I'd be surprised if we won 5-6. You just can't recruit as poorly as Indiana does and win 8 games in CFB. You can't recruit as poorly as Indiana does and then expect to win miracle games. We got close but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. Indiana already has a weight room the size of menards. Not much more can be done. The football program just isn't good and historically one of the worst. I don't think we even have a winning record over a single Big Ten team. And it isn't like we're setting the Big Ten on fire the last two years. We're 6-10. Indiana football will always be "don't sleep on them or they'll make it close and give you a scare."

I know this has been a big point of discussion for many years on here and in Bloomington, so I thought I would share this. Steve Smyers will be the architect for the upcoming renovation of the course. The project will go to the Board of Trustees later this month, and construction will begin in the fall. The project is expected to be complete in the fall of 2019. The last info I saw estimated that the cost would be $11 million.
