Yeah, first round of renovation is almost done and has been the a new Press/SkyBox, and a Football Training/Office/Booster Lounge/Viewing Deck building. The stadium is also getting all new paint, new paving of parking lots, new exterior gate around the stadium and other cosmetic upgrades.

From what I'm hearing our big boosters are in discussions with the university now for round two of renovations. Those will include increased seating in the South endzone, new permanent bathrooms, new concessions, and other upgrades. Hoping to get those started next year.

This is what round two is supposedly going to look like once all the financing gets finished.

looks good seen the live pics on the MAC board what is first phase capacity and second phase. Hard to read the proposed seating capacity looks like 21500 just guessing.

I read that three and three is the new plan with 4-2 not an option .
Five to one or an even split are designated by the NCAA as far as home field. Gillette and Amherst sorry if that was confusing.

Yeah, has to be either be 5-1 or 3-3 on the split. Looks like we might be doing 5-1 in 2015, with the one game at Gillette being against Temple.

The phase one capacity is 17,000 (You can squeeze more in, we've done it before), and I believe the phase two seating expansion was reported to be 25,000.

How is the football team going to be EZ?
Are there signs that your old coach coming back is going to make a difference?

That's what I'm hearing for 2015. It will all depend each year on who we schedule for out of conference games.

Obviously games against P5 schools will have to be at Gillette. Like this year we are hosting Boston College and Colorado at Gillette, so our third game at Gillette will be Eastern Michigan and it will be on "Band Day" where we get about 5,000 high school band kids and their parents to show up and they play during halftime.

How does this solve the issue of having a travel partner for App State?

Does not. Travel partner for App State not going to happen if this happens. Guess rest of the SBC doesn't care that much about it.
