I drove by it the other day. Even these recent pictures do not really show just how big this thing is. I couldn’t believe it, it’s a HUGE building. Totally changes the whole stadium.

Excited to see the completed version.

Thanks AFCAT, nice work!


While registering my vehicles the assessor stated "I have had both Cat and Griz students and alums work for me and the Griz end up working under the direction of the Cats."

Anyone know what the plan is for the Fieldhouse remodel? I'd imagine they have to wait until the BAC is complete and the football staff moves out of the Fieldhouse offices and into the BAC offices, but do we know if the plan is to start remodeling right after they move out? Or maybe a short waiting period?


We could say TG makes the freshman wear pink thongs to every practice and you would say, "I'm so glad he left Missoula he tried that here and it didn't work either. LOL LMAF OMG LOL BAE" and whatever else you fruits over in Missoula say -Hi-Line

I was hoping for a more imposing facade on the Kagy Boulevard side. I'm sure it will look really nice though.

I hear they are going to put up a 100ft statue of Troy Andersen on the Kagy side of the building to intimidate visiting teams.

Just looking at the webcam and the scoreboard is on with White and Blue as the teams on the board. Anything going on today? I know spring drills haven't even started. Might not even be football related I guess, I can't see who's on the field.

It's the football team. They have been doing different fitness drills over the past few days.

Looks like the Cats extended this project. If you have some spare cash laying around, please contribute.

The trackhoe is digging down to facilitate the connection for the roof drainage to the dry wells. This could greatly reduce the mud on site. Ductwork delivered to the second floor. Productive day today with 30 guys on site. Possible tomorrow will be the first pour of the polished concrete in the entryway and halls.

It's wild, I saw this about a week ago, but it looks like they did some targeted asking, because 4 days ago they brought in $71,000. That could've been the day they recorded the contributions, but that's a good push.

They definitely did. Both Lulay and Dennis Erickson show as donating 4 days ago.

A person at the Alumni foundation told me a few months back that the construction was ahead of schedule. I can’t see why that wouldn’t still be true.

Would be surprised if that wasn't the case. No football that they had to work around in the fall (or spring). Other than the snowstorm in October and a fairly tough February I don't think you could have gotten a better winter to do construction in Bozeman.
