Construction to begin in 2012.



This looks pretty badass.

Halfway to Bryant-Denny. :trollface: not really. Although I wouldn't mind if we built a Bryant-Denny on our campus.

Would make a huge difference to bowl in that one side.
The mock-up reminds me a little of Washington's stadium- without the stupid track.

The State of Mississippi is fairly lenient.  Actually.... Friday is basically a holiday.

It's interesting you brought BDS up. This expansion reminds me of the one we did several years back when we changed our north endzone. We added the massive brickface to the exterior similarly to how MSU plans to do it. It made all the difference in the world. Gave our stadium a "front door", as Mal Moore put it.

This would move MSU from having one of the more boring stadiums in the SEC to one of the more charming/refreshing ones. It wouldn't be as big as BDS, Tiger Stadium, etc, but the Horseshoe concept with the gigantic jumbotron in the south endzone would give Davis Wade a trademark look.

Actually the long term plans they've floated show the mootube going away, replaced with 4 individually smaller screens in the stadium "corners"

This is a great first step towards getting a stadium like Tiger Stadium or BDS, and a great start to building our program to being more of a consistent winner.

I kind of like having MooTube in that other endzone with the Seal building with just a few seats around them to connect them to the side grandstands. We don't need anymore than 70-80k seats.. probably ever.

A few things I didn't notice the first time:

-in the endzone, there is like a dugout thing that says Mississippi State on top of it just like the endzone. See pics 2,3.
-there is also a little terrace above the endzone for tailgating tents. That's pretty awesome, and something new that I haven't seen elsewhere.
-the new video board looks about as big as mootube.
-the bricking is identical to the new basketball practice facility and the new football one also. looks good.

I like that a LOT.  Especially the kind of open tailgating type area up top.

The only thing I don't like is that the brick facade behind the endzone seats facing the road isn't perpendicular to the direction the field runs. It's tangent to the endzone seats, but it's kind of on an angle.  Look at the last picture. The new videoboard runs parallel to mootube, but the brick facade does not. Probably some architectural reason, because there is a road that runs behind it very closely. But still.. I prefer symmetry and rectangles instead of trapezoids.
