Great. Hopefully the concern I've talked about will be addressed then. Thanks for this info!

This administration had proven themselves with construction projects.


Oh, they have? Like building that ugly arse addition to the PMAC, when the PMAC itself is pretty shitty compared to most other SEC basketball facilities.

What they should of done is just built a new basketball stadium. Maybe that would help with the fan base.

re: Renderings of expansion from LSU


Peronally, I like the design of the proposed expansion. I think it's worth noting that we aren't discussing an update to a Mies van der Rohe modernist classic or the renovation of a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Dinginess has always been part of Tiger Stadium's gritty appeal. It's a huge, drab bowl of steel and concrete that rises menacing and melancholy along the banks of the Mississippi. It's scarred and battered and, from the air in a rickety little regional jet juddering into the Baton Rouge airport, it resembles a cancerous stone angel of death ready to beat its winged upper decks and bring petrified destruction to the deep south. From some approaches it's a haunted house, a warren of abandoned dorm rooms hung with wreaths of asbestos and echoing with the stifled moans of 1960's fluffy-bushed coeds. Seen from other angles, it's a factory designed for large scale industrial slaughter. The wary animal enters down along chute from the south, is unceremoniously gutted, entrails and blood splatter the floor, the meaty bits are sprayed off the pitted concourses with a hose, laughing workers piss into a trough between killings, and the slaughter resumes next Saturday. Unintentionally, the motley Tiger Stadium aesthetic perfectly represents the assortment of loons who congregate there in the fall. I love every part of the place, ugly or no. Best stadium experience on earth when she's rockin'.

This looks 10x better than that crap they have proposed now.
Wrong. Very wrong. That does not look good and definitely does not look better that what's proposed much less 10 times better.

Nice.



I'm of the school of thought that this expansion, with a few things changed, could be a home run.

I would like South Stadium drive to be close to the south end expansion as possible. I want this to be as imposing to outsiders as possible.

The west upper deck didn't deliver that. It was a huge dissapointment.

I could only imagine if the web and this site were around when LSU first proposed the original south endzone.


The deal with that, as I understand it, was they had to cut corners and go with the open structure instead of a more elaborate facade, because the school had to cut a deal to get funding for Middleton Libarary out of the same funds to get the stadium expansion past the Legislature.

Basically, LSU got two architectural abominations (although I actually like the inside-the-stadium look of the SEZ) out of the same deal.
