I wonder how that idea would jive with the eventual bowling in would work. I think it would probably be needed eventually anyway because if you wrap the lower deck around you would have to come closer than the current 'earth bowl' or the seats would be a long way away from the field.
I was thinking it could either be the "first step" or it might be bad too. If they were looking into putting lockerrooms and such under the real endzone, it would be like doing twice the work.
Anyone remember at the time it was built, where our scoreboard ranked?
No, but I remember it being 10X better than the tecmo bowl screen we had before that - I could be mistaken but I believe it ended up at Knoxville Raceway. At the time it was a big deal, as was the Press Box and Jacobsen Building.
Yeah what I meant was take out the south bleachers for now, build up the hill closer so it "bowls in" the south. Its probably pretty crazy but could be a good temp thing to make everything feel closer to the field before we do it right.
Weren't they talking at one time about putting offices or such (visitor locker room perhaps) under the south bowl structure? If the space is already there, it seems like it would be a smart use of space. Although I do like the temporary hill with the I-State logo painted on the side.
