Can't wait to see what Willy B is going to look like after all is said and done. Huge recruiting tool when we get this place looking the way it should.

The northwest corner outside the stadium will include an area for statues, Gruner said. Some alumni have discussed adding one for USC’s only Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers.
This might deserve it's own thread, or there may already be one out there, but if George Rogers is first statue who else deserves one.

The place should look amazing before the 2015 season, if you count this and the indoor facility being finished.

Once the indoor practice facility and Brice get finished, the Campus should be set.

Just absolutely amazing to look at our facilities now compared to 10 years ago.

"If the fans are saying 'What's next?' then I would say 'Don't hold your breath,' " Pastides said.

That's the quote that stood out to me. Yes these upgrades will look really nice, but we are still playing catch up to most of the sec with the efforts.(in regards to football. The softball, baseball, athletic village, etc. are top notch) I hope Tanner/Spurrier keep pushing to have upgrades every year and never be satisfied. Other schools continue to come up with the next thing to wow recruits specifically in football, and we have got to stay competitive in the non-stop facilities competition. For the fans sake, we all know the bathrooms and concessions could all be improved. Not complaining at all, because the plans are incredible, just saying I hope we keep going in the right direction!

Let's find some jackhammers and get this project started.

This will be great. With this, the new indoor facility, and Gamecock Park, the atmosphere will be so much better.

The most interesting thing to me was the removal of the ETV building and a new team/office team/store to replace it. They'll add parking for staff and football players too, which will be needed once the asphalt it torn up around the stadium.

Both the indoor and outdoor track complexes need complete do overs as well.

"No other big athletics projects are planned, Pastides said, though Tanner said he would like to add suites on the east side of the stadium to raise more revenue."
