Here are a few pictures of Tiger Stadium taken yesterday (6/30) from a few different distances/angles.

[quote]BTW man, would you be kind enough to post these pics in the expansion thread on the SECR?[/quote]
I will gladly do so, but I'm just a man with a smart phone. Oh, and a laptop, and a car, a house, a boat, a ..., well you get the idea.

I took these yesterday (6/30). It looks like the SW edge of the new addition will get the same treatment as the arches, which I assume is stucco. I didn't get on the east side.

It seems to me that there is a big difference between the part of the stadium that is concrete and the part that is stucco(or something similar). The NE is essentially all concrete, and the color that it is now isn't original. They painted it when they replaced all of the windows. The new concret...

Thanks, I found myself on campus yesterday, so I put my phone to work. I am not a photographer, and don't own a decent camera, but the camera on my phone comes in handy more often than I would have thought. Next time I will try to remember that I can choose where I want the camera to ...

The original drawings show an extra panel on the end that stops before reaching the top section of arches. That looks to have changed.
Also, I probably should have included a picture taken from the East side of the stadium. That perspective makes it look like they stuck a Sheraton to the side of...

No, I was just trying to add to the pics posted at lsu.net. It is often mentioned on here that it's difficult to get a perspective on how big the addition is. I thought I would take some pictures from a distance to help provide that perspective...

Mid 80's, McNeese had a big left handed black guy that hit one over the lights in right center. It was a midweek game, and back when the lights weren't nearly as bright. The ball just disappeared! It probably wasn't the farthest ball ever hit, but it was the highest at the point it cleared the fen...
