Tiger Stadium Construction Photos - 8-28-12 | UPDATE - 7:15 P.M.


7:15 P.M. Update: Took another walk over to the stadium to find all the construction has about wrapped up! All that is left to do is put up the National Championship commemorative plaques and some other stuff.

For those of you who were worrying earlier about being able to view the player information plaques on the bottom row, I promise you can read them standing up.

Just like this morning, I downsized the pictures because they are very large. To view full resolution images, just click this link!
























Plenty of empty space right now, but in the words of the Joker, "there is a lot of potential for aggressive expansion" :










Morning Pictures (10 AM):

Walked over to the stadium this morning and got some pictures of the progress.

The original resolution is very large so I downsized the pictures, but if you want to view or download the full resolution, be my guest! ( LINK1, LINK2, LINK3, LINK4, Plaques)

Just in case people forgot, they made sure to include "biggest baby ever born in LA" on Herman Johnson's plaque.

I know mathieu was dismissed but isn't he an all American? Or do they wait until eligibility is completely used up?

This might be the case because Wing was an All-American too and I don't see one for him either.

This is probably what they are doing. We'll see Wing and TM7 up there eventually

looks nice, but I can't stand the arse kissing and having to display peoples names. It's a football stadium, not a jerk off stadium.

Looks great!
I'm all for progress and improvement, but I sure did like the nostalgia of the old death valley.

I will never forget my first game at Tiger Stadium. My friend & I were maybe 8th or 9th grade, we walk up to the stadium and it was still the boys dormitory. Dudes were hanging out the windows with speakers hanging out as well rocking AC/DC, Aerosmith etc... LSU flags hanging out the windows, we just looked at each other and said..."oh yeah, this is were we coming to college!!"

I like how the construction takes all of offseason and finishes right before the first game, squeezing every bit out of that contract

Nothing it's just windy outside from Isaac so I took a picture of a flag.

Here's another shot I got on campus:

I'm not sure. Maybe something like there is at Alex Box commemorating the National Championship teams. We'll know soon though!
