    That’s one lane ass cheese platter. Goes perfectly with our lame ass facilities. I can see the UAA putting that on a folding table in front of a couple of boxes of wine and scratching their heads wondering why nobody showed up to their party.

            More about Alabama's stadium upgrades (and they're throwing a whopping $3 million to the softball stadium upgrade), adding a 10,000 sf area for students to hangout in (so they stop leaving games early, pissing off Saban):

            Bryant-Denny Stadium capacity to drop only slightly after renovation


            Bryant-Denny Stadium capacity to drop only slightly after renovation

            An $111.6 million plan to overhaul Alabama athletics facilities gained unanimous approval from the board of trustees physical properties committee Thursday.

            A few new details emerged about the $92.5 million first phase of a Bryant-Denny Stadium renovation that AL.com first reported Tuesday. The large video board and student terrace originally planned for the south end zone upper deck are out.

            When announced last August, the video board would have eliminated a large portion of the 8,500 upper deck seats added in 2010. At the trustees meeting Thursday, Byrne said the capacity of the stadium -- currently listed at 101,821, will now drop by a few hundred seats and still remain above 100,000.

            Bryant-Denny was the seventh-largest college stadium in the nation (No. 4 in the SEC) in the 2018 season. The original plan would have dropped the stadium below the 100,000 mark.

            Replacing the large deck that would have been in the south end zone is a 10,000-square foot social area for students in the concourse below the student seating in the southwest corner of the stadium. Byrne said the new plan calls for a larger area than the original plan detailed. Restrooms, phone charging stations, concessions and televisions and fans for cooling off will be part of this area.

            Byrne said SGA president Harrison Adams was supportive of this move.

            The AD also said he wasn’t aware of another college football stadium in the nation with an area like this.

            AL.com had further questions about the changes made to the August plan but a spokesperson said Byrne was not speaking to reporters after his presentation like he had after a September trustees meeting in the Bryant Conference Center.

            The only question asked of Byrne in the meeting by a committee member dealt with the capacity of the stadium. What led to the decision remove the large video board and move the student social area were avenues not addressed in the meeting.

            Back in August, Byrne said the upper-deck seats they planned to remove “had been in an area we have a hard time getting our students to be in and stay during the game.” The number of student tickets will not change with the new plan that doesn’t remove those seats.

            Instead of the single large video board in the south end zone, Alabama’s plan now calls for replacing the current corner screens. The new ones will be 60 percent larger with new technology. A new elevator bank will also be added to the west side of the stadium.

            The walk of champions tunnel remains part of this phase of the renovation along with a reconfiguration of the Alabama locker room. The recruiting room in the stadium will also be expanded into space currently occupied by offices in the north end zone.

            Bidding on the project for construction companies will begin in August with the plan of beginning the renovation after the 2019 season ended.

            This is the first of a three-phase athletics facility project announced last August. The “Crimson Standard” aims to raise $600 million over 10 years to pay for the renovations that will eventually include a near-complete rebuild of Coleman Coliseum.

            Of the $92.5 million paying for the first phase at Bryant-Denny Stadium, $25 million will come from Crimson Standard donations. Another $48.4 million will come from a bond issue, $10.1 million from Crimson Tide Foundation reserve and a $9 million loan from the university to be repaid in 15 years.

            Approval was also given for a $3 million upgrade to Rhoads Stadium (softball) and the Mal Moore Athletics Facility that houses the football program and administrative offices. The plans didn’t change much for Rhoads Stadium with a new concession stand and restrooms added on the first-base line being the most relevant to those attending games.

              Thanks for posting, but this is so typical of UF and the UAA (regardless of who prepared the pdf). There is a 34 page pdf. About 3 pages relate to the football facility, with only high level outline of locations. Meanwhile, the maintenance building and IFAS facilities have completed blueprints and take up the remainder of the 30 pages. So consistent as to priorities.

                They might just end up enclosing a parking garage and add several window A/C units.

                  Even that would be better than that goofy ass, two story, doublewide trailer looking thing that Fooley wanted to build.

                  That student lounge area in Bryant Denny is an absolutely genius idea. Definitely something we should do in the Swamp to get students to the games. Except they might actually just hang in the lounge instead of being in their seats.

                    Great idea. Need to make the student section like a lounge. Take out the seats and make each row a combination of two rows with a rail to lean on...like a series of raised dance floors.

                      He isn't talking about sports there.

                      "The University of Florida has big plans.

                      The university’s capital improvement plans include a new honors college, athletic dorms, a new student health facility, academic buildings, and a landscaping plan that would change the face of the university."

                      In fact, “We don’t have the resources right now to make it happen,” Fuchs said. “We have to find the resources to make it possible.”

                      Our gawdawful athletic dorms on the list, but not first. Have you seen those things? I think they have instructed our kids not to tweet pics anymore. Pretty sure they are from the 1930s.

                      So they will fix our athletic dorms..... if we raise 600 m for Honors College and their dorms first.

                          Fooley, ever current, wants our facility to have no exits, saying exits are on the way out.
