Looks like they did take down the structure under the scoreboard.

I've never seen or been able to figure out for sure from the concepts - are the block buildings under the scoreboard going away as part of the construction, or staying until later phases? I was thinking they were coming down from what I could see, but wasn't certain.

Yup, Leon has talked about that a couple of times. The block houses stay up until construction is completed.

Wonder if they'll sell the bricks? Not that that they old and historical, just part of Bobcat Stadium.

I looked at the plans on the alumni website. Buildings are removed. There are large elevated concrete pads in there place. It looks like they are setting it up to bring large bleachers in to the north end zone for big game or creating large corporate group areas (hopefully a beer garden).

Oh good, a chance to derail this thread. What beer will you drink to watch the construction? Also what music goes well with construction? Double derail.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

The one on Montana Hall probably also sees it pretty well.

A new video screen is part of the plan. I don’t know how big it will be. I doubt we will see it this year though.

Block houses will be removed once the construction 🚧 of this is completed.

They'll stay up for the 2020 football season if there is one so the players can use them pregame and halftime like they do now, then will be torn down next spring.
