Yeah Ron- I do like the gold(victory) rather than the yellow(kinda neutral) colors.
I added close to another cord yesterday as I hydrate constantly and need to wring out my clothes in the garage. :roll:
keeps me occupied with a goal and a heck of a workout for a 75 to be. :D
Any of you guys care to share your daily habits?

STAY SAFE

addition- impressive photo of our updated stadium and surrounding buildings at night -bluehens.com :)

The North Gate is as far along as the South.

Newest update from EDIS. It’s not very revealing - only 2 short overhead time-lapse shots, but if you pause the video during the most recent views, you can see some of the details. There are footers for the brick entry columns on the north side, long footers the length of the front of the WAC, etc.

Was hoping for more than this, but there may be more coming.

Good picture Henny thanks. I drove around there last week and it's exciting to see the area take shape even during the downtime.

What a contrast from last year when when everyone was stressing about having the stands done before the first game. Even the experience of walking in will be nicer.

Let's hope we still get to use it in the Spring.

Here's hoping to the project being 100% complete by the 2021 kickoff!

Are the cameras down right now? I'm getting a "not being broadcast" message.

It's working now. Sometimes they shut it down for about half an hour to make adjustments. Nice to see the bricklayers back on the job. They are working where the fence will be going up. However, it appears they are waiting for materials. My guess is they are finished with block/brick work at the north end.

What was the project completion date if season was normal? Just my opinion: I don't think they would make it, unless there were several all nighters

Equipment and furniture move-in was set for late August and have it ready for use when school started. There may have been odds and ends to wrap up but the building was to be usable.

UD to receive keys mid-to-late September. I suspect with no immediate need, the date was pushed back somewhat.

Surprised to see what appears to be solid glass panels. Most press levels have an ability to open the windows....
Those are clearly 2-piece panels - top and bottom. My guess is one or the other can be opened.
we will agree to disagree. I see no partition top to bottom....
Much clearer now.

I hope you can see the divison now. My original comment was made after I watched them install the tops and bottoms in two separate pieces. They have since added framing which makes it more visible. If I was only guessing at the time, I would have said that. I could have provided more detail at the time, but I try very hard not to post a statement as fact on this board without knowing it to be so. In cases when I am not sure, I will always try to qualify that I am giving my opinion.
