One observation I found while posting the rest of the B12 members 40ACRES failed to mention.....Our conference is behind on stadium capacity.

Hey 40Acres, do you know if any of the other B12 members are making any adjustments to their stadia?

I can't believe they are college football stadiums. This may sound dumb, but are they owned by the college?? 100 000 people for a college stadium. We have nothing like this down here (nor do we need it with our population)

They are very impressive.

Texas is increasing to 90,000+ by 2008







Oklahoma State ... their upgraded stadium is gonna look fantastic!

Nebraska just expanded their stadium last year:












Supposedly, Texas A&M wants to upgrade to 110,000, which is hugely unlikely because their athletic department is a disaster right now, are begging for former season ticket holders to renew, and frequently getting their asses kicked my Baylor and Iowa State, not to mention being wolloped frequently by Texas. They are having a difficult time getting 75,000 to their 83,000 seat stadium.





Those are what i can think of off the top of my head.

Thanks 40 and let me say "HOLY GOD!" to y'alls expansion plan. I heard something about ATM's expansion and I also hear doubts about the plan. I'm sure the plan will bare light once they get competitive again, god forbid .

Did some searches and found that Tech will be expanding after next season. Heard something about 8,000 seats and a facade on the east. If only we could afford to do the whole enchilada like Okie State. Plans were canceled this month to add an upper deck and parking garage due to raising construction costs. I’m actually happy that they are taking their time.

RSG: Yes, most universities own their football stadiums. Some schools ***** out naming rights to companies like AT&T or United Supermarkets for a little extra change. While I personally think it's a decent idea, some fans frown on it. These fans tend to be elitest and believe other stupid things like paying $2 million for a coach that can't take your team to a bowl.

I'm surprised you've kept that screen name as long as you have. We'll take care of that.

And to make this post topical, here is renderings of Stanford University's new stadium
