Baylor's New Stadium (be honest)

Baylor's New Stadium (be honest) 


http://www.wacotrib.com/sports...b341fa7660.html


It's 97% complete according to this article.  I haven't seen it in person yet, but the pictures are impressive.  I'd say they did a great job and have a beautiful stadium except for the one obvious exception. WHODAF*CK decided the toilet lid on straws shade structure was needed and additive to this project?  It's like a beautiful woman with a tattoo on her face... you just can't overlook it.

The interior looks great. The exterior looks like a toilet

Exterior is pretty meh when you see it in person. The interior and seating areas are nice. Nice place and they are building their new track facility at the other end of the development along the river. All their facilities will be either side of the river and pretty new other than the basketball arena. It's a nice set up.

That stadium is going to have really nice sight lines for the fans and everything is built up so even the top row is close to the field. In some ways limiting the seating was a good idea for the fan base size baylor has and the stadium will look full. Yeah it does kinda look like a toilet seat from the air but I be that covering is going to be functional. In terms of improvements over the old Floyd Casey it's nothing but positive.

Looks plain when you drive down 35.

It's like the guy who used to date a 2 but is now with a 6. Yeah, it's a great upgrade, but your 6 is only getting treated like a 9 because everyone is used to seeing you with a 2.

Driven by several times. Haven't seen inside yet, but outside first impression was looks really small to be bowled in. Sure enough I looked it up after and it only seats 40,000+. Second thought was outside looked like Lowry field, no facade anywhere, just a bunch of cement columns.. It's definitely an upgrade for them and very nice, but far from state of the art. Those initial renderings looked great but so did the Dan law field renovation renderings, but one thing those pictures don't show is the material being used.......baylors new stadium looks cheap based on material and looks like they wheeled it in there and bolted it to the ground. One big piece of metal.

Way too many low seats and seats in the end zones that are too far away…. but it represents a huge upgrade for Baylor….The way I look at this is any Big 12 team making football stadium improvements helps everybody else in the conference. Most Big 12 members have or soon will have made some impressive stadium improvements.

Honestly, I don't care if it is a toilet or great.

Why is this in the Tech football forum instead of the Rivalry forum?

Beat the hated "insert name of next opponent"!

Baylor just doesn’t have the budget that some others have and as result need to cut some corners.

For example Baylor’s entirely new stadium cost over 100 million dollars less than OU’s planed stadium renovation that will not add very many new seats. OU will also be spending hundreds of millions more on other projects around campus. But when it comes to money nobody can compete with UT…. But you can still beat them…..!

 

PS: I do like Baylor’s awning. It will keep the hot sun off of some fans and keep a few dry in a rain.

Looks like a hastily built Olympic stadium.

They blocked the view back toward campus with big video board. Part of the original design was for it to be open viewing back to campus and the river and video boards on the side. I think that is a big mistake on their part.

Is it true that the new seating capacity will be (slightly) less than at the old stadium? If so it's smart for them.
There's no reason for such a small school who needed a tarp when they had a Heisman winner on the team, to be increasing seating capacity.

Inside's nice.  When's the retractable lid going on?
