The yellow brick seen on the stadium and around campus was added to the base of the mid-club section. Also, you see the start of columns on the east side. Should start to rise in a few...



More work on the exterior west side.

Albeit the capacity is only about 45.000, i think this stadium could be a great venue for a NFL franchise. The columns and the bricks give the stadium a charming retro style.

What Kingman said, and keep something in mind, this thing....



... is only about 15 miles away. So, no.

But yeah, TCU's going into the Big XII the RIGHT way with this stadium renovation.

Yeah, that might sell some tickets and draw a few fans to the newly dressed stadium.

a) As much as I loathe that conference and felt Bama shouldn't have been in the BCS title game, the SEC is indeed tough and deserves most of their accolades.

b) You do realize the "BigXIIevelen" will only have 10 teams, right?

As long as it has something to do with TCU football (it does), it counts.

2/24/2012 UPDATES



Northeast tower




Putting in the windows for the boxes.


.... kinda forgot what was happening to those first few rows at field level.


Putting in glass for the west side



New wordmark now in the new workout facility.



And NBC 5... not there for the stadium itself, but they made it a great backdrop.
