| SEC Rant|| Athletic facility on your campus most in need of replacement or improvements? - wdeinttown on 3/12/13 at 2:50 pm|
Auburn has enjoyed a wave of facility upgrades over the last decade (one positive of Jacobs's tenure). However, Jordan-Hare Stadium needs some work. I am not in favor of expansion but it does need some improvements to the concourses and to the exterior.
