agreed. The yellow brick and the north end zone in general just always looked out of place with the rest of the stadium. Not to mention half of section 107 couldn't even see the pig screen because of the yellow brick wall in the way.

I don't know how I missed all that. Huh. So we gotta play with the scar this season, but, next year when we get LSU, Alabama, East team, and Ole Piss at home we'll have the new stuff. That's nice. This is our year where we lose the A&M game anyway. Good plan, Arkansas!

How long is our contract with A & M at Jerry World?
On March 10, 2008, officials from both schools announced the series would recommence on October 3, 2009 under the name "Southwest Classic". The annual location for the game was announced as Cowboys Stadium (now called AT&T Stadium), located in Arlington. The attendance for the stadium was initially expected to be in the 80,000 range. Depending on ticket demand, temporary seating can be added to the stadium to increase the capacity up to 100,000 seats for the game. The tickets were said to be split 50/50 between the two schools. The initial agreement between the two schools allowed the game to be played for at least 10 years, followed by 5 consecutive, 4-year rollover options, allowing the game to potentially be played for a total of 30 consecutive seasons.


Not sure where we are exactly in this, but, I think it's thru 2021 iirc as of now.

For those of you on Hogville that think that Jeff Long is incompetent at his job, well, that's a whole lot of completion percentages I see in that link.  You say he doesn't have anything to do with that???  Hmm, but, but, all credit was given to Frank Broyles for getting money raised for different sports projects and such for the UofA, so what's the difference in the two AD's?  One meddled and ran off Coaches faster than a speeding bullet, the other yet to be determined if he can hire a proven winner, that I can see being a difference in the two.  But as I said, there has been a shucks load of building being done in the last few years, I would have thought they'd have run out of room by now.

I heard they were going to use a track hoe and scrape out bleacher type seating into the ground in the semi circle area where the old Broyles complex was, just for crowd overflow.

To be fair, Broyles won us our only football championship as a coach and as AD built a national champion track and basketball program.  When he was AD, you actually had to have personality and get the money raised without those massive SEC checks for most of his tenure.  He was a legendary AD.  He just overstayed.  Long has a...well...long way to go to get out of Broyles shadow.  He may do it, but he's got a lot of ground to make up.

Private donations as a percentage of the overall athletic budget, sure it was higher under Broyles, but RF donations now are higher now.

I sat in the 500's on the home side for the Alabama game in which Peters caught the game winner in the north EZ.  A thunderstorm was rolling in southeast of Fville.  The views were spectacular.  I guess there is a benefit to the nose bleeds after all.

To add, there was a tremendous increase in wealth among boosters while Frank Broyle's was AD.  He didn't necessarily get better at accessing booster's pockets, the pockets simply got much deeper.

Only to certain older ones is Long still in Frank's shadow. I'm old but personally believe as far as an AD is concerned he is out of his shadow. Not as far as Frank's overall legacy but I doubt anyone will get out of that legacy shadow.

I was interested in the Loge seating but was told that they are priced similar to suites (out of my price range).  I was told that regardless of money that my best bet for NEZ seating would be the club seats (when completed).  They said that the suites were filling up fast.

Jeff Long is one of the best AD's in the country. Sadly a lot of folks won't realize it until he leaves because he is of all things a Yankee who's only goal is self promotion and running the athletic program at the U of A into the ground.

To put the current state of construction into perspective, heres a rendering of the finished product. The wall that we see on the "live" feed is the outline of the bleachers in the artist rendering. The area behind the wall with all of the caterpillar equipment will be suites (left side) and standing room only (right). Im going to go out on a limb and say that the NEZ locker room will be built next and finikshed right before the season begins. NEZ seats will be added during next offseason, or at least that seems to be the most practical course of action

Crane #2 has arrived, looks like they will start putting it together.

Wow, really coming along.  I'm not a Civil Engineer, but how will all of this rain affect the building/longevity of this project.  I just don't want them to get it built, and then we have a settling problem.  I'm sure with the amount of money they are making on this project, that the construction team will ensure the highest quality of work.  But, being around a lot of government contracting and seeing the cheapest bidder more often than not do the crappiest job, I was just curious.

The soil/foundation was prepped before construction began (sand). And they won't work on much unless its dry enough.

Plans have changed, suites will not be added to the NEZ. Instead, boosters have decided to take the "game day experience" to the next level by building a small theme park. The 1st addition will be a large yellow roller coaster that can be taken from the west side of the stadium to the east side. *satire*  :D

The most important renovation/expansion/construction that needs to be completed is Stadium Drive.

They've had the section of what used to be S Virginia Ave. closed for a while now.  They are putting in another round-a-bout and are building new student living in that area as well.

Arkansas game days are going to be different in 2017 given the construction on-going in the north end zone at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The home team will not be able to use its locker room during this upcoming season.
Quote
“I have not heard anyone say that it will be any way usable. There have never been any plans to use it this season. It just can’t be ready. We haven’t even finalized plans for it. That will be done later. Some things are still being talked about. So we are still working out what amenities we want.”

Bielema was joined by Scott Varady, executive director of the Razorback Foundation, in speaking with the media on Monday. Varady says that Arkansas will be using the visitor’s locker room, while away teams will dress in an area that has been used by the cheerleaders.

Varady also says that recent rain in the Fayetteville area has slowed down construction on the new north end zone area.

Different uses and needs, they'll wire the game day locker room for when they'll be able to use videos at halftime, they use meeting rooms in the football center. Obviously the coaching staff thinks they need to make it different than the Smith Center locker room, but I'm sure as usual, you know better.

Those are beams that will be used to support the frame, you won't be able to see the columns when the concrete is poured.

This is an interesting point. One thing I had heard rumors of, though, was that the East Indoor Club (tons of indoor seating) is being taken out and replaced with suites. Is this true? If so, we may have actually have fewer indoor seats than before.

No, they are taking out some East outdoor seating in order to make the Founders Suites. At one time, it was going from about 25 to 25 yard line. I don't know what the current plans are.

So I remember reading that the land that DWRRS sits on actually had a clause written in by the original landowner. Not sure who she was, bUT the lady that deeded the land over to the university asked that the view to the northern "mountain" be preserved. The original owner was fond of the view and keep in mind, this was in the late 1800s/early 1900s so if you could imagine the land without the Tyson Poultry Science Building, the Quads, Hotz Hall... I could imagine it being actually a pretty sight.

So with that history lesson/urban legend, I wonDer if the university is honoring the agreement while also claiming it as a P.R. move by saying it's a tradition to allow students and visitors to take pictures from the NE side.

Has anyone heard any truth to this or did I get suckered?

I saw an estimate of 17 suites, with 5 committed.. that was a year ago.. do you know anything beyond that, and if they didn't get enough commitments .. I think they were hoping 40 mil+?  would they pull the plug on that project?

From my understanding, I thought it was 10 Founder's Suites at around $3M or so. There was an article recently that stated 6 Founder's Suites to be on the east side.

Steel goes up quick... Anyone that's built a house or other structure knows that the frame of the building goes up very fast... it's the plumbing/ electricity / interior / fixtures that take forever...

Not saying it is going slow at all... I'm sure they're on task... Just saying that when the frame starts going up, it starts to take shape very quickly...

But the section being built now comes up short of connecting with the other side. Are they yet to start on the missing section or is the blank area going to be where the standing room only part will be? I'm just forgetting what the plan is there.

The empty area is where the SRO/ "Iconic NE opening" to the stadium will be. The concrete will be poured up so that someone can connect from the west side stands to the east side stands.

Being able to see inside the stadium when you come down Maple has been a tradition as long as Razorback Stadium has existed.

It will have an unfinished look. If they want people to look into the stadium close it in and then have a gate open where people can go inside and look. I've done that at other SEC stadiums in the past. Not since 9-11 though.

Since studies show that most of Arkansas residents are overweight, the sound they emit while cheering on the hogs will be saturated with moisture. Sound waves that are saturated with moisture (like you see when you exhale in cold weather) is heavier than air and will naturally fall to the ground and expand out like smoke from dry ice. Having the lower deck completely enclosed will cause this sound to ripple around the stadium for up to 90 seconds after the cheer has been completed. You need not worry about sound escaping, we are good.

The renderings look badass, and if we were that loud for Ole Miss last year, it should be very intimidating with the bottom bowl and all that glass added. Even with "the view".
During the SEC Championship pregame media circus, Jalen Hurts admitted that Arkansas was the loudest place he played this season. Its gonna get even louder with this construction!

It doesn't take a sound engineer to know that having the lower part of the north end zone expansion completely enclosed will limit the amount of sound that escapes. It won't totally stop all of the sound from escaping but it will limit it.

We all know that hot air rises.  If the stadium is filled on game day with a bunch of Hogville posters, it'll be like watching a silent movie.

Good question, the last drawing of the south big screen showed glass from top to bottom on the south end club and suites. They are going to renovate all the suites, but that was suppose to start after the Mizzou game in November.

that would actually be really cool.  yes stretch it out and up a bit and we are there man!   I'm still not quite sure what to think about the gap they are leaving. At least the Curved screen would have covered over the top of it, and just left a smaller opening there.  haha... The screen itself could have been like the lid to the bowled in effect.    I mean, fans have wanted the bowled in effect, and yet, we are still not quite going to have it.  I don't know, maybe the in person finished look will be more appealing than the renderings ive seen so far.  Wait and see I guess.   I am still under the belief that we should lower the price quite a bit for the last sections  at each end of the upper decks.  I think I read that they actually have some??  But, i'm hoping it's enough to make folks want to get them.  Of course we all know that winning games will fill the stadium more than anything.  So, here's to a great looking stadium and one that will be filled to the rim with rabid hog fans getting to watch great football!!

Maybe you weren't specific in which scaffolding you were referring to.  There is a huge amount of scaffolding around the video board itself that is/was prep fork for the video board.   The scaffolding in question, is perched on the south outdoor club seats in front of the glass for the indoor club and luxury suites, nowhere near the video board. 

Hopefully they redo the windows in the south outdoor club to remove the obstructed view.

I was thinking it would look horrible just looking at the construction, coming up way short of enclosing it. But when you see the renderings of the completed construction, it's actually going to look really awesome.

That open area will be elevated, and will connect to the rest of the stadium, and will be standing room only for fans, and will be cheaper.

That's my kind of seat btw. I rarely ever sit down at a football game. Especially if I'm going to a home game.

Geez another idiot that can't take someone's opinion if it doesn't agree to theirs.

I KNOW "their" reasons, and it still sucks.

What are your reasons for making an idiot response that adds absolutely nothing to the conversation?

That's what I thought. Go back to your Cheetos and Mountain Dew.

Who has the issues with those who disagree here?  And I never said anything about your opinion so how do you assume that I can't take a difference in opinion?  I did make a suggestion that you could explain the reasoning instead of worrying what everyone else thought about our stadium.

I should apologize, as your post that I replied to was the greatest post in the history of Hogville and added enormous value to this thread!  Mine pales in comparison to the genius that was the 30 words of shimmering critique you gave to a project that isn't even complete yet!  You have humbled me.

What a crotchety shitbag mentality you have.

Man I hope the next project is doing something to the west side parking lot, Razorback road and the entrances.  So much could be done there!

Don't quote me on this, but I believe I read somewhere the master plan includes widening of Razorback Road and improving the general cosmetic appearance of the road, sky bridge (to the suites) and exterior of the stadium (making it look more like the east side).

I agree that it needs to be improved, but it isn't happening at this time.

The problem with the West side is there is so little room. The structure is just a couple feet from the road.

I think they could lower RR a little and close that small parking lot or put it underground.  Then build a a deck over RR.  That would give you that whole area for a raise plaza and make it less crowded and dangerous at the entrances.  Dangerous from crowds mixing with cars at that point.

Shoot I hope they don't do it north of stadium in 44. Would be a big ole eye sore since the ground is higher there and the deck would be higher than the stadium. Put the thing where barn hill is with a second floor access from stadium dr. Or put a deck on lot 55 (pomfret/track).

No, the SEZ is clearly the wider structure.

Yeah, getting it in the dry makes a completion date more concrete. There are 135 existing suites to be refurbished, and 7-10 Founder's Suites to be built where the East Outdoor Club seats are, all starting after Thanksgiving of this year.

I disagree.  As lower level seating and the concourse fill in from west to east, and as the elevator tower on the NE corner fills in from the other side, the gap will close somewhat and will be barely visible or not visible at all from many vantage points inside the stadium.  Keep in mind that the two perspectives from which the construction site photos are shot, the SW tower and the hill to the north are the two angles that maximize the view of the gap.

It's going to look cool from inside.  And it will be cool being able to peer down into the stadium from Maple the 359 days a year that the hogs aren't playing.

Leaving one corner open looks more and more odd as construction progresses. I get the "look-in" preservationist thinking, but Jeff has poo pooed on tradition everywhere else (slobberin' Hog and school colors). Why give RRS special treatment?

It looks terrible. And most people seem to think it looks terrible. And JL knows it looks terrible.

As you note, this wasn't about tradition - we would have had too many empty seats / loge boxes etc that couldn't be filled if we had to continue it around. That's the reality of the situation - demand was not there. "Look-in" a very convenient excuse

I agree with poster above it will probably look a tiny bit better when that concourse is built, but it will forever look incomplete (until it's finally completed all the way around).

You're right, they aren't. Having the lower level complete makes it look pretty good. If it were incomplete like that all the way down to the floor of the stadium that would indeed look horrible.

I think if the ground outside the stadium was actually at foundation/first floor level like normal it wouldn't be such a big deal.

That being said I'm curious to see how it looks once the lower bowl seats are in. Inside the stadium video recently taken looks pretty great.

Just make it look complete from the outside and leave the "standing room only area" there.  At least from the outside it would look complete

Terrible?  Really?

And you really think low demand for loge boxes accounts for the design?  If only the architects had realized that they could have gotten the same number of boxes by building all the way across and eliminating a couple of levels.

it also appears to have a rather tall glass on that open side to capture sound, I think this will look much better than a completely bowled in upper deck with empty seats anyways. it's going to a kinda cool hang out area with standing room only tickets if I remember correctly which will be discounted prices.

I got the sense that there were plans to make the SRO area one of the main entrance plazas, sorta like the centerfield gate at some MLB parks. 

Also, somewhere there is a revised rendering, different from these which are on the UA website, that is significantly different in some ways--and to my mind, not quite as cool.  If anybody knows where that is, or has seen a later version, I'd love to see it again. I hope they retain the "observation decks" at each level of the elevator towers.  One thing I've never quite understood about this version though:  why wouldn't you put the glassed in portion of the elevator towers facing the field?  I like creating sight lines to the field from as many points in the stadium as possible.

I've looked high and low for that image but can't find it.  It was tweeted by someone at the UA in February or March, around the time that the new women's bb coach was hired.  It was a new rendering from the perspective of the south end zone looking north and showed some modifications to the suites and elevator towers, less glass on the top level, etc. when compared with the drawings on the UA website.  I would imagine these changes could be accommodated without much alteration to the design concept currently shown.  It received a fair bit of comment at the time.  I  thought some of these were improvements and others not. 

Who knows whether this is even the final design.  I gather that some minor elements may still be in flux.
At any rate, it appears to have been deleted by whoever sent it out.  Either that, or I've just forgotten where I saw it.  I would like to look at it again though.

I know the objective is to have both video boards ready, and the rest not until next season, but I'll be curious to see how much progress they can make over the next month. And really...

Sure I could but I shouldn't need to explain. It's obvious to anyone but a youngster. Old folks do NOT blame young folks for problems we endure. We created our own problems. What we blame young folks for is the problems THEY have themselves. I never brought up the economy or what we did. If anything the one blaming others its the youngsters as evidenced by your post. Besides price inflation is generally a fact of life for ALL generations and we all have to live through it. IF you were older you would know that. Your inability to not have "things" and "get further" is NOT related to the cost of those things and is not the fault of older generations. Some day you'll grow up and hopefully understand.

Im pretty sure the exterior of the Broyles Athletic Complex (not sure if that will still be the name of it, but its what im going with until I hear otherwise) will look completely different by the time we play TCU. I don't think the exterior will be complete, but the concrete outer wall of the building will probably be in place. Just a thought

It isn't the Broyles Athletic Complex any more. They completely demolished the BAC all the way to the ground.

If you're looking for symmetry, you've come to the wrong place.  As it is, the east and west sides don't match.  If I were bothered by asymmetry--which I tend to be--I would be much more bothered by the fact that the southern end of the stadium is shaped like a half hexagon and the northern end zone is half an elipse than by the fact that the scoreboards don't match.  According to which drawing you look at, it doesn't appear that the elevator towers are going to match either.

But somehow, it all works.  And I think this is going to look great, including the gap.  It should be a visual focal point from outside the stadium but I don't think it is going to look weird from the inside once the whole thing is tied together.

Symmetry? How about brick & dryvit 3/4 of the way around and a 1950's erector set exterior on the home side. I told Jeff Long a few years ago that it would be like a guy who updates the exterior of his home to brick on the back and aides but leaves mobile home siding on the front.

Well, when I said the east and west stands don't match, that's partly what I meant.  And you're right, that's the most egregious thing.  But I don't think of it too often since it's only really visible from Razorback Road, and I don't approach or inhabit the stadium from that side too often.  I half accept the explanation that the road limits what they can do over there, but you're right.  I wish they would finish that side somehow.

Either way, it makes asymmetrical scoreboards seem like small beer.

Try going to the concession stand or to the restrooms on the West side second level concourse during halftime. That concourse is horrible. Getting out of there after a game is even worse.

They have plenty of time. A month ago the frame for the SEZ wasn't complete and the NEZ structure hadn't even begun. These guys work very quickly/efficiently. I expect the NEZ scoreboard to be complete in about 2 weeks EDIT maybe 3, but either way the scoreboards will be fully operational vs TCU

They need to flatten Razorback Road starting down by the practice fields moving north to create a tunnel behind the west stands. Build a plaza where the street is now with the road running under it. Put up some statues with benches and trees, a place for fans to sit and visit. Add a brick exterior to the back of the stands. Get rid of the erector set look.

Exactly!  The west interior is narrow and dangerous. I'm shocked we haven't experienced a horrifying event in the narrows between concessions and the first floor.

All this could be cured with what you've described or, rather than tunnel, just build the plaza above the existing road.

I cannot believe this issue with the stadium continues to be ignored. It would measurably improve the fans' game day.

What I'm suggesting would not really be a tunnel. They'd just flatten Razorback Road so that when it reached the west stands it would beat 15-20 feet below the entrances/exits to the west side. Then they'd build a plaza over it. If they really wanted to spend some money they could take out the parking lot to the west and create a two level parking deck with the lower level below the plaza at the new level of Razorback Road. They could also create lower level parking where the north endzone lot is and put a tailgating area above it with grass & trees.

I can tell them how to spend their money as fast as they can come up with it.  ;D

If they really wanted to spend some money they could take out the parking lot to the west and create a two level parking deck with the lower level below the plaza at the new level of Razorback Road. They could also create lower level parking where the north endzone lot is and put a tailgating area above it with grass & trees.

I can tell them how to spend their money as fast as they can come up with it.  ;D


The road then would be very steep coming out from under that plaza before it connects to Maple. It is fairly steep entering along and just before that side of the stadium. IIRC it is also a US highway and not owned by the state or locally. Think that has been one of the holdups all along. Something can and should be done though. I think rerouting and closing that short portion of the hwy. Then use the old right of way for entrance and expansion of concourses.

Ha that's a great idea, glad I suggested it!!   But you just as well call it a tunnel for practical purposes, it ain't gonna get any daylight if they built a plaza over it.

Post by: KC_archHOG on July 26, 2017, 09:10:59 am
Best thing we could do right now to enhance the gameday experience and cost NO MONEY to do, would be to expand the hogwalk through victory village. Drop the players off at the top of the hill and let them walk down to the stadium through the fans. Currently we have the second shortest "player walk" in the SEC to Vandy (who doesn't really have one). Expand it through Victory Village and we'd be top 5, just shorter than Georgia and equal with Tennessee (both of which are INCREDIBLE experiences).

They need to flatten Razorback Road starting down by the practice fields moving north to create a tunnel behind the west stands. Build a plaza where the street is now with the road running under it. Put up some statues with benches and trees, a place for fans to sit and visit. Add a brick exterior to the back of the stands.
A fine idea but you are absolutely going to vaporlock David Pryor.

I mentioned it. He just looked at me and shook his head. At the time he was still a couple of years away from announcing the north endzone project. One project at a time. They're probably another decade away from doing anything to the west side exterior to open up more space under the west stands. A new Baum Stadium entrance off Razorback Road may be next. There's also the matter of getting rid of Barnhill to build a parking deck. They'd have to build a new volleyball/gymnastics facility to do that.

Pretty sure those are used the form the walls in base of the tower sections. They pulled those in and out while pouring some concrete in the west tower area.

Nice "Field Level" persepective of the sheer size of the NEZ structure and how tall the board will be on top of the SEZ structure. Very impressive. This is a SEC quality stadium, my friends. Based on the fact that Greg McElroy and Jalen Hurts said that Razorback Stadium was the loudest away game they've ever played in... I can't imagine how loud it will be when complete!

Bump!! The last panel is going up on the top of the new video board. Looks like they'll have it done early next week.

There isn't a bottom row, they did start on the bottom. I don't see how you can use a crane to set another row from the top, do you?

I posted this picture in another thread.  Here's a view from  row 1, west  side section 107.  I hadn't been inside the stadium until today's scrimmage.  The scale of the new north end is beyond impressive compared to the old Broyles Complex.

The latest rendering of the completed project I guess matches up pretty much with what they have done on it as far as the width and length and height. It looks awesome as it is. It might not be quite as big as the one in the other EZ. But definitely newer and more high tech with it being curved. Once the rest of the construction is done it's going to look so fantastic.

Love this rendering, so can only hope the final result is as impressive.  BUT just don't see enough ground area left between the end zone and the current steel structure to accommodate its lower seating bowl.

Follow the edge of the standing room only area around the BAC. That's where the club seating will begin. It will take up about half of the space that is left before it drops down into the lower bowl. There are 2 things to keep in mind.
1. The view we have of the construction on the live feed is from a distance and makes everything look smaller. There is more space left than it seems
2. The lower bowl will be right on the edge of the field. Just a few yards away from the endzone

First off, you do realize that the live feed can be zoomed in to a rather close-up view of the remaining ground area of the NEZ?  This view is what I am basing my comment on. 

As such, I still see no way the depth of this area can accommodate the rendering's seating in front of the current steel structure.  Not to mention the grassy space behind the goal post.

Well, I bet they had an architect or two work on it before they put up the steel. I'll put my money on there being enough room.

True, and we have those ribbon boards now that could be used for some of this. Thankfully the screen will also be just as big but much close now too, so if they still use the same amount of the screen it will be easier to see by proximity alone.

The jumbo video screen is not a standard video aspect ratio (which is typically 16:9 these days), so you make a choice...stretch and distort or crop the video to fill the screen -OR- keep it the original aspect ratio and fill the blank space with scoreboard, adverts, etc.  I guess they've decided (at least in the past) to keep the same aspect ratio and make some money on advertising.

Even with a pad, that's solid structure close to the corners.  I'd rather them have about 5-10yds of space.  I don't like them have to "put on the brakes" that close to the end zone. Especially with our history of foot problems.  Just my opinion.

As others have said, aspect ratio has to be preserved. It was always intended for the sides to display ads and traditional scoreboard. If you look at our SEZ scoreboard (the old NEZ one) compared to the video boards at Ole Miss, MSU and Texas, for example, theirs are true 16x9 aspect ratio. Ours appears to be in 2:35:1 anamorphic.

Ours, by comparison.

What I'm REALLY curious about is whether they will be able to put an end to the constantly refreshing scan lines when they do shots of the crowd during timeouts, before the game, etc. That's the noticeable thing to me.

They just need to sync the scoreboards refresh rate to the cameras refresh rate and it won't be an issue

Not gonna lie, it can be really quiet in there if the opponent is of a lower caliber. But Hog Fans get DWRRS rocking! Maybe it's the aluminum bleachers, that the field is below ground level, or the steepness or angle  of the incline of the stadium. Acoustics are funny like that. I expect it to get much louder (obviously) when the stadium is 90% enclosed.

I'm not trying to start anything but as was pointed out, other players have said it was one of the loudest. Bama 2010, 2014 were very loud. Tennessee 2011 was also. DJ Williams said that Ole Miss's last play 2016 was as loud as he has ever heard.

Razorback Stadium will never be the largest---not in the SEC. Being in one of those 100,000 stadiums is an experience of itself, no doubt. I remember first trip to Knoxville with over 100,000 and was awed.
But I do think it's one of the nicest. I've been everywhere in the league.
What's odd is that DWR is similar to the model of most NFL stadiums. You would think NFL fields would go for the more the better, but they generally don't. They build a lot of 65000-75000 seat stadiums with plenty of club seats where the most revenue is. That is the business model that works.

The SEC actually has more large-capacity stadiums than the NFL does.

I was at the 2010 bama game, the 2011 Tennessee game. They were both extremely loud. Bama fans at the game in 2010 left with respect for our program, for our stadium. Best seats I could get was in bama seating, and they were respectful of our people, our stadium, and our program.

In the 2011 Tennessee game, when Joe Adams returned that punt for a TD and did it the way he did, the crowd went nuts, and I was one of them.

I was there for the 2004 texass game. We lost that game but the crowd noise was deafening. The 2013 Aggie game when Manziel came in was extremely loud too. The Hogs fought so hard to the very end. And we all saw the Hogs lose. But they gave it their all, including a hurt Brandon Allen. And I can't wait to be in that stadium again when the construction is finished. It's going to be awesome!

Perhaps a little 'off-topic', but while doing the Time-Lapse for the NEZ, following the progress of the AChiO and Phi Mu sorority houses has been kind of interesting.  That you can watch both being built side-by-side is unusual.  Not to mention their completion is a major development in the maturity of UA's sorority row.

Yup. I was at that game yelling as loud as I could when the Hogs were on defense. I still to this day think if Dennis Johnson hadn't gone down hurt against LA Monroe and played in that game, Hogs would've won. His kick return abilities, his ability to pound the defense when running the ball. Just a shame still we lost that game.

Also the last game my best friend, who died of prostate cancer 2 years later, was able to go to. And and I had a memory I'll sure never forget.

Interesting thread.  What I think it proves is that we can get very loud in DWRRS, when we WANT to.   

What we need to learn is how to be this loud for EVERY game, and not just the big name schools or high profile games.  I want DWRRS to be just as lit up against a school like New Mexico State as it will be for Auburn this season.  Instead will probably have 60-65k attend with most leaving by the 4th quarter.

I want DWRRS to get the same type of reputation as the Swamp or Tiger Stadium.  I'd love for fans on the other side of the country to turn our game on and see a lit up crowd when we are playing a lower tier opponent and we are up by 21 points., and for that person to put DWRRS on their bucket list of stadiums to visit because of it.

One of my bucket list stadiums is Doak Campbell Stadium at FSU.  It just looks like a fun time every time they start doing the war chant.  I want fans of other schools to have the same reaction when they turn our game on and see the crowd.

One of my bucket list stadiums is Doak Campbell Stadium at FSU.  It just looks like a fun time every time they start doing the war chant.  I want fans of other schools to have the same reaction when they turn our game on and see the crowd.

You're not going to see many fans get pumped up for games like New Mexico State. And if the game goes as it should you won't see many left in the 4th quarter in any stadium around the nation. Especially when there are other high profile games on.

Fake news!

Seriously, if every game was like the OM game last year, I'd probably stroke out.  Sometimes it's fun to just go to the game, relax, eat some popcorn, and watch the Hogs thumps SE Tech.

I don't know where our fans get the impression that every single seat at every single game is filled with a screaming fan at every single other SEC stadium but ours.  The inferiority complex is exhausting.

Interesting thread.  What I think it proves is that we can get very loud in DWRRS, when we WANT to.   

What we need to learn is how to be this loud for EVERY game, and not just the big name schools or high profile games. I want DWRRS to be just as lit up against a school like New Mexico State as it will be for Auburn this season.  Instead will probably have 60-65k attend with most leaving by the 4th quarter.

That's true at EVERY stadium. None of them are super loud all the time for every opponent.

I'll hold off on one of the top in sec until it's complete. We have a ways to go to get up there with Kyle field, Death Valley, the swamp, bama, AU, rocky top, and UGA. Even South Carolina has a great looking stadium.

With that said.

Don't have recording or link, but I thought I heard Long in an interview say that they have a plan to "utilize" the space. I'm sure that means marketing/ promoting the brand in some way. He said it will be obvious it is under construction, but they will do what they can to reduce the "eyesoreness" and ensure safety of players and fans.

This should help improve the stadium for some:

Quote
The university has signed a 10-year, $137 million multimedia rights deal with IMG College, as reported by Michael Smith of Sports Business Daily.

The agreement is expected to be one of the most lucrative in college athletics and lasts through 2028.

What fans will notice is that as part of the new contract, IMG College is making a “significant investment” in free wifi service at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Bud Walton Arena and Baum Stadium where the Razorbacks’ baseball team plays.

They have not and I'm not sure if it's possible due to safety and the ability to turn off and on the lights quickly.

They could possibly turn the screen(s) red with the lights on but the effect wouldn't be the same.

To be fair, Broyles won us our only football championship as a coach and as AD built a national champion track and basketball program.  When he was AD, you actually had to have personality and get the money raised without those massive SEC checks for most of his tenure.  He was a legendary AD.  He just overstayed.  Long has a...well...long way to go to get out of Broyles shadow.  He may do it, but he's got a lot of ground to make up.

That storm was something else! Don't remember seeing as much lightning as it hit Jacksonville with, mostly cloud to cloud thankfully

Opposing football players who play in the biggest and best stadiums are much more accurate than a weird bear fan with an axe to grind against NWA.

Proud alumnus of THE University of Arkansas.  UCA is a fine school. No problem with UCA.  It's the one weird stripe bear fan who post on hogville that's the annoyance.

WMS has been loud in the past.  The fact that someone wrote an article with FACTS about how loud Razorback stadium is does not take away from WMS history.  Don't let the FACT that times change hurt your feelings.  DWRRS does get loud as cited by the article and several visiting fans/opponents.  As well as ESPN commentators:


- What is your inferiority complex with central arkansas?

- Must be the business school, otherwise sad.

- Facts as good as the self-proclaimed-master-of-none author claims.

Feel free to not reply, this is not a very interesting conversation about your buddy Adam Bailey's blog you're trying to pitch.

None.  This isn't a NWA vs. Central Arkansas debate. This isn't even a stadium debate.  You have a gross infatuation with constantly puking on anything related to NWA, THE University of Arkansas, and/or the Razorbacks.

Must be the business school, otherwise sad.

I was wondering this too. While I didn't see it firsthand, I was told a few weeks back that during the install of the south tv, glass was damaged in the process. I'm assuming while they built the structure on top the glass damage must have occurred. As a SIC guy, I hope it's fixed by TCU :)

Looking at it from this angle, I was surprised how low the profile is for the new North end zone.  The top of the seating will still be lower than the bottom of the upper deck on both sidelines and possibly even lower than the box seats.  I hope it has the impact we are hoping for in terms of trapping the noise.

The closer they get to the final product the less I like the snaggle-toothed NE corner. I understand the tradition but it's gonna look strange. Unfinished.

Hopefully they'll quickly realize this and utilize that space for additional luxury boxes. If fans who don't have tickets want to see the inside of the stadium on visits the athletic department can organize tours.

It looks unfinished because it is unfinished--they haven't even started on the elevator towers yet.  I would wait until the final product before passing judgment.  I might change my own mind when it is finished, but as of now, I feel just the opposite. I think it looks great from almost every angle:  interiorly from field level, from the lower stands, exteriorly from lot 44 and the iconic vantage point at the top of the hill on Maple.  Oddly, the only angle from which it looks a little strange is from the perspective in the upper sw corner, one that few of us will ever see in person.  From the opposite corner the look in would be mostly invisible.  And even there it is going to look very different when finished.

I've been complaining about our open-ended and 'unfinished' stadium for over 20 years.
This project is bringing joy to my heart. FINALLY, we will have a completed, filled-in stadium. No more noise escape to the north end.
No more night and day difference between the atmosphere on the south end versus the absence thereof on the north end.
It's going to be fantastic and it will be very pleasing to the eye and tough on the opponents.
I think it will look great, but in reality, I don't really care. I just want a filled-in North end, so this is nirvana to me.

Well, this does show the 38 you've described.

That the center six are a bit segregated from the rest may suggest some exclusivity that precludes being a part of the initial offer, ie once the 32 are gone, these open up, maybe even at a higher rate.

It's my understanding the SRO is in the "look-in" section. As to the rooftop on top of club seating, I've heard everything from beer and truck vendors area, to just a roof top area for club seating, to "I'm not sure".

I am just now noticing that - it appears to me - they have replaced the temporary bleachers on top of the SEZ with permanent seats.  If this has been discussed before, I missed it.  Not a lot of seats - but perm seating none-the-less.  Wondered why they didn't do this years ago.  Guess they were just waiting for the next "large" construction project to piggy-back (pun intended) on at a better price.

Those seats have always been there. The temporary bleachers were set up where the new vidoe board is.

Yeah - right after I posted that, I went back and checked some older pics and saw just that.  Came back and deleted my post, but obviously you responded before I did.

Thanks for the correction, however.

I guess I just never noticed those few rows before.

Or it could be along the lines of this image from the website (under "NEW THEMED EXPERIENCES").  Even the stadium background shown suggests as much.  This would be a stunning view of the field and crowd (even though these fans shown don't even seem to know the game is going on. lol)

It's a club area that leads to seats.  Similar to the outdoor clubs but much nicer.

The reason why it sounds familiar is because of the constant pull to stay home.  Athletic programs are fighting to keep fans interested.  Plenty of fans voice similar opinions to yours - "I've got the best seat in the house - I don't have to wait in line and I have good food and drinks at home."  These club/suite areas are trying to provide all of those amenities plus the added benefit of actually being at the game.  Of course it's much more expensive but the people buying the suites are willing to pay the price.

is this image accurate in that there will be a standing area under the scoreboard with fountains as well ?   If so, is it just that seat holder's can wander up there or will they sell standing area tickets ?

They've done away with the fountain idea quite awhile ago.  They are putting a heated swimming pool there instead and are having the cheerleaders frolic around in it during the game when the score gets out of hand.  For all of us fans not close enough to see the action, it will be broadcast for us on our new video boards instead of the petit jean meat commercials.  They even had Russell Crowe do a voiceover from his famous Gladiator scene, and it will be shown on the video board where he stands facing the crowds shouting, ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

It's either halftime, or before the game, that's another game on the TV's, haha.

So just a question. From the rendering, why are they showing a road game on the TV? Maybe those are actually the suites at Taco Tech, because that's the game on the TV.

And yes, I second the question. Why is the ghost woman running from preppie ghosts?

I am confused.

Will the "A" look like it does here?

Will the team run through one of the legs and out the top (opposite how we have done it for decades)

Will the band swap ends and begin the pregame ritual from the other endzone?

Will we enter through the same tunnel as the visitors or will we enter on the visitors side tunnel and cross the field?

SO MANY QUESTIONS!!

Addition by subtraction. I saw the stadium first hand a couple of weekends ago and something definitely needs to be done about that Gen Adm. bowl. It looks really bad. There are HS stadiums in TX nicer than Faurot Field. Decrease in capacity, but increase in Net Revenue due to converting Gen Adm to Suites/ Club Level seats.

Nostalgia and Tradition...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faurot_Field

"Rock M

The stadium's most historic and identifiable landmark is the rock "M" above the stadium's north end zone. The "M" is formed by whitewashed rocks and measures 90 feet wide by 95 feet high. The landmark was built in 1927 by a group of freshman students, using leftover rocks from the original construction of Memorial Stadium. This distinctive feature has not been immune to pranks, such as enterprising Nebraska or Kansas fans attempting to change the "M" to an "N" or a "K", but groundskeepers and students have in the past protected the landmark. One of the traditions of the football team is that seniors, after playing their final home game, take a rock from the "M" as a souvenir. The rock "M" is also whitewashed every year by incoming freshmen during welcoming activities prior to the first home game."

You're insane if you think they will just leave plain old plywood at the back of the end zone. Its gonna be covered by that padding with the razorback graphic (most likely) that you see around the stadium. Also they could move the supplies because construction will continue throughout the season and these guys have to be able to move their equipment around back there

WMS has been "done" for at least two decades....   it is really pathetic that the Hogs play even one, "rent a win", game there at all, even for "old times sake".....    DWRRS is a premier venue for the Hogs to play in and they should play all home games there....

Yeah - right after I posted that, I went back and checked some older pics and saw just that.  Came back and deleted my post, but obviously you responded before I did.

Thanks for the correction, however.

I guess I just never noticed those few rows before.

So ...

If no bleachers ... then final capacity must be less than 80,000?

If bleachers altered ... it used to be 4,000 more seats but with the new video board it will be less, so still less than 80,000?

I don't expect it to be put up until next year. They haven't poured the concrete or done much else to the top of NEZ. There's a lot work that could/would effect the enclosure around the screen. I think their only goal was to get it up and running.

So is that our seating cap: 77,000? I suspect that standing room capacity increases with the expansion, but it would appear the SEZ jumbotron location points to not finishing that upper deck or adding any number of permanent seats up there. Am I reading that correctly?

Capacity is 72,000 as it currently sits, with the finished NEZ and Founder's Suites in place of some EOC seats, it will be around 77,000. That includes 1500 for SRO.

I just didn't know if they would put up the backing to protect the interior components and back of the panel from the elements. I'm sure they are self sustaining and the panels are completely cosmetic, but just wasnt sure.

It looks like they started putting up banners to cover up the metal structure and that may be why camera was blocked.

I read somewhere that Jeff Long said there was a plan to utilize the NEZ Space on game day until it was completely finished. Maybe this is it.

It would be nice to dress it up a bit and it could make the noise level better.

And I doubt they cover that north end with some kind of grand banner that blocks the steel structure. The play clock is already on the structure and I think when the cameras show that end, that's what you will see on TV.

It would appear so.  Meanwhile, another big load of steel has arrived, and the big cranes are active at both ends.  Looks as if we're going to see some significant movement over the next week or so.

I imagine they'll have that area taped off with signs that say "New Grass, Do Not Walk".

I agree with you though... The drunk will be oblivious to these warnings.

They might be worried opposing teams might use the camera to spy on what the Hogs are doing in practice. It's possible they might keep it covered until after the season is over.

So it looks like it malfunctioned between 12:38 and 12:48 today. It went to being fuzzy and unformatted. They have apparently cut the power to the panel and are probably now fixing it. Doesn't seem to be of any concern.

Don't look now, but another big load of steel is arriving today.  Expect a lot of progress between now and New Mexico State.

I know no one wants to talk about this anymore since we got embarrassed by TCU, we're saddled with a huge buyout, we ran out of water, NWA has ruined football, and the sky, generally speaking, is falling.  But this 'new stadium' will be there long after Bielema, his successor, and all of us complainers are long gone.  Who's to say that those who come after us will no enjoy it, or that we might not someday field a team that can win in it.  Meanwhile, watching it take shape may be more fun than watching football.

Not realistic for it to be named after long. He is not from Arkansas, never played at Arkansas, has only been employed at Arkansas a short time and right now is probably not in such good graces with the fan base.

I have faith and say that the fans were booing the decision.  There was also a time where the stadium booed when we punted the ball.  It was more displeasure in the ineptness of our offense then with a certain player.

Correct, and if you listened to the PC, Bielema said that he was calling missing the FG juvenile, not Hedlund.  As he's stated, he's been Cole's biggest supporter, he kept trotting him out there for the past two years, haha.

With the towers beginning to take shape on the corners and some of the work that's been done in the past couple of weeks, this thing is starting to look pretty cool.  I'm curious whether any of those who didn't like the design have changed their minds since it's getting easier to envision the finished product and since the animated mock up was released.  Assuming that's pretty accurate, that clarified a lot of features that I was unsure about with all the different, more two dimensional renderings.
