  • When we get new turf, which is this summer, or next summer.

    I'm the one that texted him asking if the font would be updated in the end zones to keep the "Brand" consistent. He said that it was part of the plan.

  • There is no standard seating in the end zone (bleachers). The closest thing will be the red premium chair back seats, which also sell out quick. People want their own seat and don't want bleachers where a 300lb blob can steal your steal.

     I resemble that remark...

  • Jeff Long tweeted about this recently. It is in the works. Not sure if for next year or not. I liked the red end zones with white lettering that we saw at the Belk Bowl. I think it would make the field look better.
    LOVE the red end zone with white letters. Would look great

    Wisconsin and Bama already do this.







    Can't say that I'm a big fan. Especially compared to this.



    If we do want to do something crazy with the coloring, I'm wondering about doing something like below but with the whole sideline red. Also, maybe black outline instead of the red or at least a thin black outlining outside the white. Don't like the lettering in the below image.

  • #106 by bennyl08 on 17 Mar 2017
  • I guess some of the idea of the sideline being, you can't escape that this is our home turf. With the red just on the endzone, it signifies a target, something of ours that they can come into and take from us. Have the endzone be the same green background but the sidelines be completely red, there's no special area for them to penetrate, visually speaking. The endzone visually isn't all that different from the field. What is different is the area outside the field, engulfing the field. There is nothing to come in and take, you are already inside the special area and surrounding by it, engulfed in it. Nothing for you to conquer, it has already conquered you.

    Sure, the endzone is still worth 7 points and is a special place to go into, but football is also a mental sport.

    Our font ... ugh. There is nothing inconsistent in branding about different fonts for different sports. Tradition goes awry in this corporate effort. I mean for crying out loud we have 75 different variations of Razorback -- pork chop, Sue E, etc.  Tradition says Slobberin' Hog should live. Tradition says baseball uniforms should have some script. Nothing wrong with a variation with the approved font, but variations should exist -- even on the basketball uniforms. They ought to be like the days when we were winning, with Razorbacks arc'd across the front. But that's just me. It's my one gripe about Jeff Long. Oh, and we are one of the only SEC schools who doesn't have our own logo visible from the pitcher's mound. We get that lovely ARWORST logo. I'd settle for that logo AND a Hog. But no.

    I agree. The font that we use now looks terrible on our baseball uniforms. It's not made for baseball.

  • I normally don't complain about UA decisions. Please just complete the NEZ. Who ever thought having the open space was a grand idea, you were wrong. Let's please not wait 12-20 years to fix it. If they feel it is important that fans be able to see into the stadium at all times, just put a glass walkway and an observation area.

    They have plans for that space. One idea I heard was a gated "private club" area. It would be standing room with some table and chairs spread out. They would have local food and beer vender carts up there available to those with a ticket. Sounds kinda cool.

    And if it doesn't go well, it can always be closed in and completed at a later date.

    I thought the private Club area was to go just below the scoreboard on top of the luxury boxes.

    Currently I agree but I'm curious to see the finished product. It is bowled fully on the bottom, so from Field View it may look quite a bit better, it is just the birds eye perspective making it look incomplete. I'd rather just take the top section of the two story sky boxes and put that in the hole. But maybe once complete I'll see the vision better.

    No joke. When I lived in Washington construction of a new, 50 ft, bridge was held up on a tributary right next to the Snake River.

    I seem to recall the contractor getting paid in the neighborhood of 200k/mo for almost 2 years...while awaiting the lawsuits to be settled. Nice gig if you can get it.

    As ICEMAN pointed out, they do have plans to complete the NEZ, and it's supposed to be started in 5 years once all the funding is there for the project.  I can tell you what I heard they're planning on doing with that empty space.  ICEMAN is on the right track with what he heard, it will be a fully enclosed glassed structure with columns that's a members only, "private club" area.  It will have tables and chairs spread out facing the pool and the field.  That's right, I said pool. It's supposed to be and oval shaped heated pool.  They will have local food and beer venders up there available to those with that have a membership for that area.  This is not including those who have luxury boxes, only for those who will be sitting the entire game time in that designated area.  But with it being 5 years away, it could change many times before then.
