Big House Expansion??

Submitted by Chi-Blue on September 14th, 2012 at 12:07 AM

So with the new facility upgrades that have been announced I saw that almost every sports facility is up for some work accept the BIG HOUSE. I know we just spent like 250 mil on the upgrades and boxes just a couple years ago, but I thought I heard some news of some seating going in the voids between the new score boards and the boxes?? I figured that this would be included in this new 7-10 year plan, but did not see it on he website. Does anyone know anything more about it??

Lambeau Field which has a very similar design to Michigane stadium is putting in an addition much like what I think DB would be thinking of doing. Just a little look see . . .

I think it would be nice to just get some color in there.  The new luxery boxes are so bland with just the plain blue.  They should add some yellow borders or logos or something to them.  Also, it would be nice if they added some more lettering/color around the perimiter lower walls on the field level.  I think that would really brighten up the stadium and give it a some color.

Speaking of the big house, I was leaving one of the University parking structures after dark one night this week, having been parked on upper  level.  Up there I had a straight sightline to the massive Black M on the backside of the north scoreboard.  It was lit up but the edges of the dark blue scoreboard melted into the rest of the darkness, so the effect was a huge Block M that looked like it was floating in the sky.  It was beautiful.

I'm guessing some of the rooms in South Quad/West Quad residence halls must have this same stunning view.
