Cider, you need to "pinch hit" for me this weekend and get updated photo. I will be in Alabama. If you can't jump fence, borrow a drone.

I saw a pic of a few rows of red chairs during scrimmage ...I don’t see any stacks of equipment or chairs from cam angles. Any one local have a scoop?

Those are the upper deck "Club" seats. As you know, the rest of the Baptist side will be blue. The rest of the seats/chairs are stacked in boxes to be set in place. I guess there's some preliminary things that have to be done before actually installing the chairs.

I saw a rendering somewhere that had red seats on the lower portion of the west side, blue seats on the upper portion and red seats again on the club seats above the blue seats. I can't find it now but it looked pretty good.

Anyone know what they're doing to the grass field and area that they cut into the embankment on either side of the 460 West interchange across from the Bill and next to the Extended Stay? Are they just more parking, or are they adding more buildings or business?

I was at the stadium for the Flames Club luncheon today. The entire Baptist side concourse was full of dozens (if not hundreds) of large boxes that I assume are the new seats.

Looked like a parking lot when I drove by today. Flattened with gravel and curbs.

Excellent - was worried they were stuck in transit.

That's my guess too. Just trying to get some confirmation from the experts.

I've noticed the last two freshman classes have been larger than normal with the 2021 freshman class breaking the record and the 2022 class being just short of the record. We are now at an all time high enrollment of 15,800 according to the article below. Are we officially working toward expanding the on campus enrollment again? If so I imagine new dorms are likely the next big project on campus. I believe they've been at capacity for years.

We are back utilizing old converted hotels to handle the overflow. Some of us old hags remember those experiences from our '80s growing pains.

In answer to your question, I do expect more dorms are on the agenda. Whether that is sooner or later depends on cash flow these days.
