IMO there are more important things that need to be done like the remodel of Hilton first. To those of us who work in the construction field the look now is not a problem.

I think the proposed look looks good. I doubt it will ever happen and I doubt it is cheap to do so I would rather see some of the other stuff done first.
I don't know about THAT, but I personally l like exposed structures so I can see how everything went together... but I'm a nerd like that.
I do think the cost to suspend precast panels underneath would be pretty high for a purely aesthetic improvement. Even just encasing the columns and beams in concrete would be pretty pricey after the fact. Although it would "match" Hilton a little better that way.
Bottom line- get rid of the south hillsides and aluminum bleachers, and we won't have to worry about the "look" of our stadium.
