    Nice renderings and an animation that shows it off pretty well, except it shows a full stadium of cheering fan. If they get this built, they may become at even greater force in recruiting, than they are now. and yes . . . it still looks like a giant toilet seat. Looking for 2014 season opening.

    Looks nice, but, unless I'm mistaken, they've had a hard time filling what they have now.

    That'll cost them a dollar or two.

    My Orange blinders don't stop me from seeing what has all ready started to happen in Waco. It reminds me of us a few years ago. A good coach, big alum financing a stadium, etc. Check out baylor's recruiting, it is about like ours and they just got the #6 (I believe WR in the nation). it kind of reminds me of the situation Barry Switzer said on TV several years ago about ou had better wake up and see what was happening in Stillwater. If we aren't keeping ourselves aware of what our rivals are doing, we aren't doing our job.

    If Baylor had this stadium now the people on the river could catch Quinn Sharp's extra point kicks.

    They are decreasing capacity by 5k seats so not as much need for the tarps.

    Pretty sweet. The pedestrian bridge is the coolest part. But renderings like this are to bait for doners. What they actually build will probably be about 60% of the initial design.

    I think it looks like a soccer stadium.

    So, they'll have The Gold Bear Tit and the Bear Toilet Seat on campus. Wonder if they could work in a deal with Charmin since they already use commercials with bears in them.

    Baylor can save some money by just leaving the toilet seat up...............I mean off.

    I wonder how much that roof would cost them anyway?

    Pretty sure this is exactly what people said about us while BPS was being built.

    In my defense, that was before my time at OSU (freshman '07). Though WSoP did say they were decreasing capacity.

    If we build it, we will still be Baylor.
