Re: Might this be the time?

With all the unanswered questions due to the Covid "new norm", might this be the right time to calmly seek to create a new conference for UD- one that would be geographically and academically compatible and have suitable quality competition to reestablish fan support/revenue. Behind the scenes nego...

Re: Live Construction Footage

I didn't know about that but I was more interested in the quick step that the band used for a while. More recently the band runs onto the field. There was a brief period when they used the quick step when entering the field. That was pretty cool. and they look like a disorganized mess doing it........

Looks great. Looks like plenty of space to continue the band marching under the stadium playing the fight song. Look forward to hearing that again this fall or sometime soon.
maybe, but it also may be extremely loud with all the new concrete and low ceiling.

Re: Live Construction Footage

Looks good. I didn't realize that the lights would look quite like that, the artist's rendering was a little off in that regard, not in a bad way, just a little misleading. With the light poles the way they are you'd wonder if they would put a bunch of flag poles up there now and fly the six nation...

Maybe the volume and loud music but I have been to plenty of places where the PA announcer doesn't sound like a Vince McMahon employee.
C'mon man! don't disrespect WWE announcers like that! :lol:

He was one of the best PA announcers anywhere.
and then they saddled us with the current train wreck announcer. How do you go from an icon to a joke overnight?

Re: Live Construction Footage

Jerry O told me after a gmae last September that the video board was going to be replaced before the start of this season. Any progress on that front?

Recommendations from the NCAA moving forward “until there is a vaccine.” http://www.ncaa.org/sport-science-institute/resocialization-collegiate-sport-action-plan-considerations yeah. a vaccine is NOT the big savior. if you are waiting for that, you may as well wait for a unicorn to prance across yo...

Re: When will College Football resume? Links and references.

Bingo!! If you want to make educated guesses about what UD can/will do in terms of the fall semester, watch for what is said about the residence halls. In truth, how classes are taught will have little bearing on when UD opens because there are multiple options for those activities. Not so for resi...

Re: Live Construction Footage

And they probably don't have to rush this year :D Definitely coming together. Hopefully EDIS will do another fly through to see the progress on the inside. I still say the new press box is expansive for UD Football gameday purposes. well you have home and visitor radio, student radio, coaches home ...

Re: Live Construction Footage

I have a couple shots of the inside of the press box - I’ll have to find them. Also, inside of the stadium is starting to get it’s blue paint this morning. Found them!

Re: GH Interview with Coach Rocco

So I was just thinking that if things do not straighten out for a football season this year, you will almost definitely see a contract extension for Rocco for at least 1-2 years. rather than going into 2021 as a lame duck. thoughts?

Re: Looking Ahead on Construction

So if there was another step to the outside of the building, I seriously doubt that the scaffolding would have been removed.....it is done. It appears to me that they painted the gray block white. I believe that the front wall will be covered in blue padding. the side and elevator will be blue and t...
