Block houses will be removed once the construction 🚧 of this is completed.
Thanks. Actually makes a lot of sense now that people are talking through it. Can't tear down them down while there's still a season to play before the new structure is completed.

Anyone else check on the progress every hour or two expecting that something could actually change in that short of time?

I think they are staying up until its finished.
Yup, Leon has talked about that a couple of times. The block houses stay up until construction is completed.
I thought they stay up until they rebuild the north end zone
Nope. No reason to.

The picture confuses me with all the windows facing the stadium. Is this from actual construction drawings because when they put in the end zone seats and boxes the view will be completely blocked?

Yes, from the renderings it would appear as though these windows will be obstructed once new end zone seating is built on that end of the field. But that's quite a few years down the line, so might as well give the coaches' offices and whatever else is up there one hell of a good view until that happens!

Guessing it will change by that time. I can see having seats below the windows, then the suites above, then they don't lose the view of the field

I'm just waiting for my tickets to the standing room only deck on the roof with BBQ grills going all game. Would be great for recruitment.

Choate has the corner suite with windows looking out towards the Bridgers and the field.

All the end zone seating will be below those windows. It’ll be a small bowl. Any boxes or open pavilion would be above the second floor offices.

Either that or they have severely limited the possible seating capacity of the North End Zone.


Socialism - the financial model historically used to control the masses! It has noting to do with
freedom, and seriously erodes the primary constitutional freedom of free enterprise.

The concourse for the north endzone bleachers will align with the second floor of the BAC so that the coach’s offices and position meeting rooms will open out onto it with seating below. How do I know this? Well I worked on the design with MSU.

The web cam has not worked for me for about 10 days. Anyone know what's going on?
