those would be licensed seats. They get removed at the end of the season...I think.

An upside of college football stadia is that they don't, to the extent of my knowledge, sell naming rights. For instance, I couldn't imagine Beavers - Citibank Arena.

Nonetheless, I'd find very cool if they updated those stadia even at expense of seating capacity. And it would be "uttermost cool" to have a college football stadium with a roof, a complete one, suites that could be used to attract faculty and staff to the games and even some kind of nerd club, where people wiht GPA > 3.9 could go for free and have a good time with snacks and that on. It would be very interesting.

They just recently finished a complete renovation of Stanford Stadium. I think prior to the 2006-2007 season. A great renovation, but lost a lot of history in the process.

Some of the newer ones do sell the naming rights (Ex. Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.) but you are right that generally, college stadiums do not sell the naming rights.

It basically is. They kept some of the foundation, a scoreboard and a few other things, but 98% of the stadium is brand new.

Three of the five stadia in the post before yours sold their naming rights.

The old ones mostly don't, but many of the newer ones do.

American College Stadium Construction/Expansion

Hi all, just a thought here, can we combine all the College construction threads into one or would it be too big?

Seems they are rarely kept up to date and are often missed all together.

Right now there are a few new football stadiums under construction and plent under expansion. Not to mention basketball arenas, hockey arenas, baseball, etc.

If nothing else maybe we can use this to post links just to make things easier.

so good to see this get done

If there's any school whose football program is long overdue for a pick-me-up, it's IU...

The IU additions looks amazing. I love the look of that building part in the center of the upper deck, what's that part used for, just a lobby?

that addition completely changes the character of the stadium, instead of looking like an oversized highschool stadium, it now looks like the home of a respectable college program, if only the team can make the same transition.

The central building is used for many purposes. They host events and dinner in there occasionally.

btw...Our recruiting class is absolutely awful again so I wouldn't expect anything fantastic from IU. I have faith in the progress of the young basketball team though.

Maybe the stadium upgrade will help get recruits, before the new end it wasn't exactly appealing. Now it looks good.

Well that would be different, not really a fan, but at least its interesting. a slightly more regular upper level might make more sense visually, though the site certainly has its difficulties. Any word on how press/premium seating is gonna be integreated. Or on likelyhood or timeline.
