It didn't seem like it took them long to get the paneling on the SEZ board... I bet they'll get it done.

They still haven't put up the paneling. I don't imagine it will be done before Saturday at this point...

I had remained hopeful once I saw the contract switch to Levy several months ago. If those pics are of the best of the new offerings, I think I'll just grab a few dog treats before I leave the house Saturday morning.

Now, about this Pepsi snafu...
What happened to pepsi?

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.

Unfortunately, nothing.
hear hear. Why would anyone drink a Pepsi when he could have a Coke?
Levy may not be any better, but they can't be worse than Sodexo. It's not possible.

Yep, there haven't been the temporary bleachers for at least two years, maybe three. Probably around 77,000 or so capacity.
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.

Looks like construction of the NW tower is well underway and steel for the NE tower is being brought in today.  Should be fun to watch.  I'm really eager to see how the towers change the profile of the thing.

Hopefully it catches all the kicks made by Arkansas kickers and all the kicks by opposing kickers fly into the construction area...  ;)

In stadium camera is... well... I dunno.

Either they covered it bc the team is doing walk-thrus or a construction worker decided the camera was a nice coat hook for his vest.

Huh, was wondering if they might block the camera once the game is actually on TV. Perhaps they are doing it sooner? Or as you said might be walk thrus I guess.

Funny the scores they keep putting up on the scoreboard, sure hope that happens haha.
And those screens look darn good.

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.

looks like they are practicing on the field and covered the cam. 

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.

The Broyles banner would look fantastic hanging somewhere in the NEZ. I'm really excited for the game Saturday. It feels like FAMU was just a scrimmage and this is our first game.
Hopefully I'll be able to get up to NWA for the Auburn game and get to experience firsthand what the place sounds like with that construction site deflecting sound.

Cloak is still on the camera... Definitely up to something... Not sure what. But they are obviously wanting to hide something going on in the stadium until gameday.

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.
