I would not have pegged that at having 70+ rows. When you mention that, 70k does seem about right.I would agree with that, and also it doesn't really rise above the ground like Tiger Stadium, Bryant Denny etc.
Also it isn't very steep I don't think. But the sidelines actually have like 73 rows!
The LA Coliseum goes up to row 93, but I think it's even more than that because when they took out the track, I don't think they renumbered. I think the (new) rows closest to the field are letters or some such thing. Can anyone confirm?:banana:
70+ rows isn't that much. Doesn't the L.A. Coliseum have over 85? Many, if not most multi-decked NFL and MLB stadia have 75+ rows.

Plans to build a new team locker room, training facility, weight room, coaches’ offices, meeting rooms, recruiting reception area, dining facility, and equipment storage officially are moving forward.
Mizzou plans to break ground on the project — which includes 16 new suites and a field-level club that seats 1,500 fans along with 1,300 general admission seats and some standing-room only sections to replace the 10,800 general admission seats that are disappearing — after the 2017 football season.
Despite an 8 percent reduction in Memorial Stadium’s capacity, from 71,004 to roughly 65,000, school officials project a net revenue increase from the new premium options for attendance.
It is expected to open in time for the 2019 season.
