The opening on the northeast side of the stadium is the ‘million dollar view’ for the campus …

So many folks visit that area to take pictures, get a glimpse into the actual stadium and probably reminisce of past games and their time on campus.  For some fans and visitors, its kinda like walking up to the edge of the Grand Canyon and peering in, an ooh-and-aah moment.

Wow......please take the shades off. A little dramatic this one....

That's strange. I noticed it in my first game there (Texas in '88 iirc) and every big game since. Odd you never noticed it. How many games have you attended?

Before the Broyles center people stood it the "circle" area above the knoll that had wooden bleachers. When it was built they squeezed into the northeast corner area. I've always seen people there. Heck one game many, many years ago I stood there and watched a game. I wasn't by myself either.

What's empty? Suites and loge boxes will be full, the club seats??

I am talking about the huge gap in the Northeast corner. The gap that makes it look like we ran out of money. I was saying even if we didn't have the demand to build 25 more boxes or whatever that we could have continued the structure around and put something else inside that area.

I was one of the few early posters many months ago that was fighting along side saying yes, indeed, we had sold all of the boxes.

You do realize that the lower bowl will be completely enclosed, Right??

Yes, totally. You do realize you will have no idea that's the case when looking at the stadium from outside it, right?

So, any stadium that isn't a bow,l is a stadium that ran out of money? I guess everything has to be symmetrical to you? I guess to those who don't know the history of the lookin, it might appear that way.

It's not a lack of symmetry - that in and of itself is not inherently bad (see Gillette and many others). The issue is the design doesn't make the lack of symmetry look natural; it literally looks like we were chugging along and then just stopped 75% of the way complete. The design looks like it is supposed to be symmetric, but isn't.

If you can't see it just by looking at it then obviously we will never agree because it is overwhelmingly obvious to many peoples' eyes (have seen many posts on it here over the year), but it is an opinion. We can disagree on whether we like the aesthetic or not, but I can 100% assure you that history was not why that corner got left open. That was a convenient excuse, and indeed as you note, to the average recruit and anyone else watching around the country, it will look that way.

You can't assure anything 100%, except your opinion. Tell me, why was it left open? It isn't because of money, adding suites is the cheapest part of the whole design, the structure support for them is already in place.

As I mentioned on the previous page, it was due to a lack of demand. I don't blame him for not building more boxes. Adding 20+ more would have been very difficult to fill. That said, they should have considered an alternative use of that space if they were to build it. But alas. Just frustrating because the stadium would look so BA if it went all the way. We have it bowled in and you would never even know because you just assume it stops there.

It would be 12 more, you know, if we're keeping to the existing design. Seeing that suites are the only fully sold seating, I don't think one could say that with certainty.

This is the most ridiculous theory I've ever read.  it's hard to know where to even begin.  If low demand were the issue, then there would be a hundred other ways to address it, including just making the building smaller by a couple of levels.   Like the design or don't like it.  I don't care.  But at least give it the credit of being a design and not an accident.

So, just to be clear, you truly believe Jeff $$ Long - the person who got rid of slobbering hog, added front facing hog, etc. (a clear champion of history) and whose every move was driven by profit even to the extent he put PEPSI at games much to fans chagrin (which I don't blame him for that is his job, and short of the CBB contract, he was objectively extremely good at it)  - would turn down the opportunity to sell 12 more suites...in the name / spirit of history? Rice I know you cannot actually believe that. If we could have filled those suites they would have been built.

Jeff Long didn't design it, but I think you knew that, just as he didn't do the Pepsi contract, which was a University decision.

It was designed intentionally. Not a lack of money. Not a lack of potential selling of suites. Or any other reason than to preserve the Northeast look in. Period.
Ps. There have been many times I have had friends or family in and taken them to that corner to sight see and take pictures. Many many people do.

Could you be more full of ch*t?  He had nothing to do with the PEPSI contract.  If you had been part of the desgin team and privy to the results of the questionaires you would know that one of the top request was to find a way to not destroy the iconic view from the NE corner.  Jeff listening to the fans doesn't fit you agenda, so believe what you want, but quit regurgitating BS.  As for the slobbering hog, it needed to go as part of a plan to build a bigger brand.  One Razorback (no more Ladybacks), one running hog logo, one color of red, one font.  This is a 100+ million dollar business, it better be run like one or we will always be on the outside looking in.  BTW, where was the outrage when Broyles updated the cartoonish logo from the side of the helmet from 1964? There wasn't any because he talked like one of us, not some carpetbagger from Ohio.

Why is a space with a great view of the field, where fans from anywhere in the stadium or every donor level can walk through, meet up with friends or stand and talk, or where vendors can set up, or where you could do any number of things that we haven't even thought of yet wasted space, but it wouldn't be a waste to build boxes for 12 more millionaires and their friends?

Looking at the progress of the construction, I wonder if they're on schedule or not. They've come a major long way, but not only the new expansion has to be completed, but there's supposed to be renovations made to the suites in the rest of the stadium too I believe. Seems like a whole lot to get done between now and end of august.

I believe they are working on the other suites at the moment.

I wish a pic from field level was available. Someone go down on the 50 and post a couple for us. What about that guy who kept going to Drake Field?

Was just thinking the same. Can’t wait to see the look from field level again with the new updates.

Look. They left that gap there for all the College game day crew setups we will have in this future! Thinking ahead! Ha!
I know youre being facetious, but that actually would be a good spot for SEC gameday when they come next season

Yeah, it really would. Here's hoping we become so good that game day can't stay away.

So, just to be clear, you truly believe Jeff $$ Long - the person who got rid of slobbering hog, added front facing hog, etc. (a clear champion of history) and whose every move was driven by profit even to the extent he put PEPSI at games much to fans chagrin (which I don't blame him for that is his job, and short of the CBB contract, he was objectively extremely good at it)  - would turn down the opportunity to sell 12 more suites...in the name / spirit of history? Rice I know you cannot actually believe that. If we could have filled those suites they would have been built.

We haven't had a "carpet bagger" moment in a few hours.

Watch this whole video:

Recruits pay attention to facilities.

You can hate the coach.

You can hate the athletic director.

Fans should always support facility improvements because they help with recruiting and will last longer than any coach or AD.

Wow. Love this young man. Thanks for posting.

He’s right about facilities. Arkansas’s are as good as they get, as is the academic support.

The new NEZ improvements will have a big impact on recruiting in 2019 and beyond. It’s an exciting time to be a Razorbacks fan.

You probably have a better idea than any of us about the facilities.  :)

Congratulations on your son choosing to be a Razorback!
