Really wish they'd do both. When you guys said construction would start Monday did you mean today or next Monday? I live at university oaks beside the armory and didn't see anything going on today.

I hope you're right. But I was referring to the practice field stuff behind the Gamecock Park.

They need to build tunnels under the street so no traffic has to be stopped for people to walk over to the stadium. I thought I heard they might do that at some point.

If you take a look at the renditions, it makes sense.

So the indoor practice facility will be built before next season, but the green area around the stadium won't start until next year? Weren't both originally supposed to be done at the same time? Was the project immediately around the stadium pushed back?

Green stripe!

If they do ticket collection at the new gates further out, they better close the roads surrounding the stadium to pedestrian traffic only or that's going to get dangerous.

The gates won't be right against the streets so there will be room.

The practice facility needs to go up before anything else is started.

Restrooms, concessions, Wi-Fi..all need to be addressed ASAP.

Here's an idea...spend some money on the people that pay the bills...the fans.

Default Re: Stadium improvements during off season?

I'm really starting to wonder if the exterior improvements will ever be done. It's been part of the plan from the start but keeps getting put off for other projects. Since that piece won't bring money in I just don't think it's viewed as a priority regardless of how bad it is needed.

Hopefully Wi-Fi service so people can actually receive calls/texts at the stadium. That should be #1.

$$$$$ guys. We can't do everything needed in one off season. Can't pump all of our money into one sport. We just built a beautiful new softball field and are doing a multi million dollar fix on the "sinking" baseball field.

We just got a beautiful new scoreboard to hold us over for a few seasons. All the changes will come, be patient.

I can't wait until that lot is ripped up and repaved but I also know how badly the new indoor facility is needed to keep up with other schools.

This better not be on the university. There are entities that need to be held to the contracts they signed. If they dropped the ball, they'd better be paying the bill. If the contracts do not protect the university, then someone needs to lose their job.

The company declared bankruptcy. There is no one to hold accountable.

The Farmers Market was for the budget not the fans. That is a tremendous revenue generator for the program. The video board also has allowed for more advertising revenue so both projects are money makers. There is no financial benefit for the area around the stadium which makes it easy to ignore.
