Default Williams Brice Upgrades

So the thread where we were all talking about ways to make WB look better got me thinking, so I gave Spurt some homework last night.

I would still finish the walkways with the garnet to make it look more complete, but this is what I have in mind for the rest of the stadium. Maybe a darker brick to give it more of the garnet look than the plain brick look, but I think this would make WB look top notch.

Anyone agree?

I really didn't pay attention to it last night working on this photo, but
now that it's posted, I should have done the walls of the stadium (on
each side of the scoreboard) as well as the face of the Eddie Floyd
Building (just under the scoreboard) in brick as well to balance it out.

I did three of these altogether. One with brick on the Press box, walkways
and the turns.....It didn't look good at all. Did another with brick pressbox
and walkways..... didn't look good either.

Cack suggested originally just to do the Upper deck supports and that is
what this is. This was the best looking of the three. .. I also like his
suggestion of going with a redder brick. With the dark stained brick mixed
in with that, you'd have a really good looking exterior to the stadium.

However, I wouldn't extend the Garnet on the turns if you did this. I'd
leave it as is to match the Press Box, Walkways, Light supports etc...

(IMO)

I was actually looking at that too. I think finishing the turns might make it too much ... but I still don't know that I like the half finished turns ... who knows.

Cack, no worries. I think it's cool that someone is using my picture.

As far as the stadium, I think we have to paint the turnstiles that are currently half painted garnet. Also, if the brick costs too much, maybe we could throw a coat of paint on the entire structure.

I kind of like our stadiums look without the brick. I'd rather see them just paint it and stuff like that than put a brick facade on it.

I'd like to see them one day create an over pass for the walk from the fairgrounds in, over George Rogers Blvd, but so that it looks like the road goes down and the walk way is the same level as the fairgrounds.

/\ not to say that isn't what they're planning for the outside of the stadium, but I wouldn't say it's exactly what IS going to happen either. That site is EXTREMELY old, and even says we're supposed to expand the North Endzone and have it completed for the 2012 season to add 6-8k seats.

Although it would be AWESOME, I don't know if that's what's really going to happen.

Yeah...the bottom scroll is what I was mainly referring to, where it shows the street going down under a walkway.

I had seen the idea of doing the crossover floated around the internet but never seen the school officially say it would be in the works.

I don't think this is what people had in mind when they mention bricking WB. Generally, other schools have completely redone the outside so as to cover up the industrial look. See Florida State's stadium. In other words, the brick would start several feet in front of the current structure. This just looks like a brick veneer.

I like the idea of having a big block C on the grey tower looking thing(right above where it says WILLIAMS BRICE STADIUM).

Spurt you are a God. This is exactly what I had in mind, in fact I was gonna pay a graphic designer to brick everything. Can we see what it would look like to brick the entire stadium inu do g the Ramps? How about leave theists the beige color? Keep going spurt hell if displayed to USC u could get a fat check I'm the mail if its ever coincided. My dream is coming true just looking at what could be. Thank u!!

I was going with my idea, not what everybody else was saying they were wanting.

I don't think we should brick up the ENTIRE stadium to look like every one else.

I just looked at the FSU stadium...looks nice! I wish we would brick ours similar to theirs. Overall their stadium and surrounding area looks very nice. I wonder what the cost is to brick most of our stadium...I'm throwing in $20 :)

My thoughts exactly. Make it look like a college building, that they play football in...FSU's stadium is beautiful

i like the industrial look. I would like to see a design like spurts but with black brick and finish painting the ramps and pressbox garnet. Leave the the uppers like spurt did. On the big tower that says WILLIAMS BRICE STADIUM brick it in black brick but where the lettering is have an inset area painted garnet. idea need to see it though

Or you could do the exact opposite and do the traditonal brick and change all the paint to black. If you go with traditional red or garnet brick you got to pop for black mortar

My guess is that if they do decide to gussy up the exterior it will be in the same style as other recent campus buildings.
