Looks like you got the capacity wrong, Sercan & Goothrey. The News Sentinel article says 104,079. It must be the biggest football stadium in the US, correct?

why is only half the stands covered?
The endzone upper deck with the roof was built in the late 1990's. The sections the roof covers are all chair-backed, NFL style seats and at the time, were the only ones in the stadium outside of the press box. My guess is that they wanted to keep the wealthy alumni who were paying for those seats dry.

As for the reduction in capacity, the entire stadium is being renovated, not just the exterior. They are/have built several club seating area, which is reducing the capacity since you can fit a lot more butts on bleacher seats than you can the chair-backed seats. I believe the entire east side upper deck is being converted as part of the press box rehabilitation that Goothrey posted pics of.
