Default Stadium improvements during off season?

Do I remember correctly that our athletic department is going to remove the parking under and around the stadium to make way for a green space this off season? That was something I was looking forward to more than anything.

What do you mean green space? And hopefully they touch up some of the paint on the turnstiles on the outside. One looked like some paint had chipped off. Sure they'll have it looking great!

I think USC is going to remove the parking lot immediately around the skirt of the stadium and replace it with brick walkways, grass, trees, palmettos, ect. There are pictures floating around but I cant find them.

Most of the time, off-season improvements are scheduled to begin the Monday after the last home game (sometimes even early Sunday am after the last home game). I hope these improvements are scheduled to begin this week. Should look very nice around the stadium

I talked to the Director of the Gamecock Club on Friday and this is what he told me:

Starting Monday, they begin construction on the new practice fields and the new indoor facility at the end of Garnet Way.

At the end of next season, they will dig up the asphalt and put in the walk around the stadium which will include a brick and iron wall/fence. Tickets will be taken at the new fence instead of at the stadium. It will look really nice and will definitely class up the joint.

I'm wondering how that's not going to back up foot traffic onto the surrounding streets but hey, they are the professionals.
