The more I look at it, the more that looks to be a major rework of not just the stadium but the entire vicinity.  I just don't see how you can do that and still have those roads open to vehicle traffic.

My bet is they'll use this as part of the push to become a predominantly pedestrian campus...

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.

It looks like if you rotated the facade to be parallel to mootube 1 and mootube 2,  you would most assuredly have to eliminate Barr rd in line with the above...

That's tight. I have to say that I am thrilled with the new look. I am tired of DWS being one of the "weaker" stadiums in the conference. Also, recruits love stuff like this. Kids won't to play places like that.

That is my thinking also. Still, I don't like it. But I reckon I'll get used to it.

The upshot is that it gives more interior stadium room with that little courtyard for who knows what.  I'm anxious to see what the plan for that is.

That concourse area would be a hell of an awesome place to watch an SEC football game.

looks good....interesting to see how it all turns up.  that angle is a little goofy benny, but it may not be noticeable from ground level.  im interested to see how that works out.

barr is a problem.....the weird angle still grinds my gears a little, but if it is mirrored on the other side, i guess it will be ok......overall, im happy with the interior and the exterior is the look i want but the angle is a little frunky.....but i like the direction of how it is progressing.  cant wait to break ground.....ill be super pumped seeing those cranes build onward and upward.  and benny, im sure we will eventually hit 80k +.....its just how it works.....the population of mississippi will double in a hand-full of decades and those cats will all be looking for somewhere to get edumacated and such.  the state of mississippi is at the bottom of the barrel in many ways, but there is only one way to go for us and it is up.  well get there one day.

I just wonder what problems the Mullen-haters will have with our new upgrades?  Prob won't be good enough.

Bump.. this looks good as hell from the inside. Still don't like that asymmetry outside.

From the inside, it looks a lot like Jordan-Hare Stadium...the high upper decks on the east and west sides and the sharp-turned corners puts you really close to the field. It's very nice.

The asymmetrical configuration on the exterior is kind of funky, but in a way it'll give your stadium a quirky trademark. Either way, State is moving on up. This definitely looks like a nice venue to take in an SEC football game.
