    You are correct the neighborhood is south of the stadium.

    Correction... in the newest version of the campus plan, there is no mention of an arena. Pretty awesome what they have accomplished so far. https://www.tarleton.edu/renovations...usPlanning.pdf

    Any idea of doing away with the temporary seats during the playoffs this? Isn’t it technically supposed to be finished in November?

    IDK... How cool it would be to open up this season hosting a playoff game, but I do not see that happening. Both Troy and Lonn were pretty adamant about liking the pace of the project so they can prepare for the use of the new facility. If it opened up this season for a PO game, it would be rushed... that's not their cup of tea...

    I am for the opening to occur next year.

    An electrician in the know told me that they did a hot test back towards the end of the year and blew every one of their connectors from the lines to the transformers on the stadium. The electrical crew was fired on the spot, and now a local crew is having to redo everything. I was told it was only about a $50,000+ mistake.

    Sorry for not knowing the terminology. I fix A/Cs, not electricity!

    WAC has shown interest but no football....

    SLC has a bunch coming off their intro-probation, still the only legit chance

    So, what are you saying? Southland Conference is the only way Tarleton moves up?

    East side pressbox will remain. They will update the brick to match the red brick throughout the campus. Will still serve in some capacity as a press box/ or maybe turn them into suites.
