I say fix up the area outside the Brice before we do anything major to the actual structure.

It's not the best SEC stadium, but you got to admit, it's better than it was 10 years ago

Let alone to prevent a death of a person. There are a bunch of laws, and potential lawsuits that not only the university wouldn't want to deal with, but the SEC has it as a rule, and I don't think that will be changed.
Yeah, because serving alcohol doesn't work at all in professional stadiums or other college stadiums that already serve it.

Your argument is invalid. How often during NFL season do you read of people falling "off the stadium" and dying? Or during ALL the MLB games each season?

Nearly zero. Why is this such a foreign thing for you to comprehend when translated to a college stadium when 70% of the fans are of drinking age...junior/senior students, alumni, older fans, etc. Not far from the demographics of any other professional game.

You don't bring in any crazy "new" rules...as again, professional stadiums are handling it just fine. People aren't passed out everywhere, puking on each other, pissing in the bleachers, and fighting like some Hollywood movie.

I like the overall look of Williams Brice. It has a retro-70's look that is kind of unique.

When I say between the walls, I mean between the seats. With the addition of the video board, the quality of the game experience took off. I do agree that concessions, bathrooms, and merchandise booths could use some renovations.

But the big issue is perception. I have a lot of friends from other fan bases, and rarely do they say, "Your stadium looks terrible." The comment I get 95% of the time is,"Why did you build it in the middle of a industrial wasteland?"

It's going to take more than some trees and grass. Some buildings will have to receive facelifts. I would like to see a little more landscaping along the back of the parking area in the fairgrounds. The stadium needs to be brightened up.

It will take some time. But after it's all completed, the focus should be on the stadium first, then on the area around it, not the other way around.

We want people to think, "Look at that stadium in such a nice setting." Not, "Look at that industrial wasteland with a football stadium in the middle of it.

Does look good! BFWIW .I would add a round mosiac of a Gamecock 1/2 to 2/3 way up tower w/ white back ground to make it stand out against brick. BUT ! The biggest change I`d like to see is lower prices & better food for what they charge.
