    Question for the Athletic Council members or whoever, what is going on in the east side of the stadium? I noticed that there is work being done by the old Iron Mine, possibly even elevator shafts.

    LOL! My point is that the Texas and UTEP renovations happen at the same time, sometimes.

    probably a lot more possible in the Sun Bowl. I don't see where they would put them in the Don Haskins Center

    That’s crazy they have raised 80 million out of the 175 needed to complete the project through private donations. I know UTEP will never have that type of fundraising clout but that impressive.

    Vanderbilt’s football stadium has not undergone a major renovation since that 1981 project, which cost $10.1 million (about $28 million in today's dollars). Since then, every other SEC stadium has been renovated multiple times, including at least one face lift in the past 12 years.
    Just like the renovation of the Sun Bowl from 1980- 1982 (north end and the high east end).

    Yes, they brought it back, much to the chagrin of some in the fan council thread

    I got to walk through it yesterday. In addition to the players and mascots of days past there are also pictures on the wall commemorating concerts and other events that have happened in the Sun Bowl. it does look really nice.

    I'm sure it's the best they can do since the first game is this Sat, and I'm sure this isn't the 'be all that ends all'. What Italian tile were you thinking of to go along 8106's question?

    Come on, Senter came up with #EPMAD. Didn't you know that right after he tweeted it that thousands of people went and bought tickets? There are only a few thousands tickets left for the game. He even tweeted to buy season tickets to avoid all the long lines. It's going to be a madhouse on Saturday!
