They now have 5 months to finish it.  Can that be accomplished that fast?

Easily, the inside work will go quickly, they are on budget and on time.

I don't doubt your, but there's still quite a bit of outside work.

Sure, but the precast concrete for the lower bowls has been set, lots of work can now be done. The person I had talked with back at the first of March said they hoped with good weather, not too many rainy days, that they would be in the "dry" by the first of April. All I know is they say they are on schedule for Sept 1.

They may be working 24/7 on this project.  The place is lit up like Christmas in the night camera shots.

They were talking about the month of March, enough dry days to get them where they needed to be. If it's rainy they'll continue working on the inside, they're on schedule.

Yep, just like when the Brewers hit a HR and Bernie Brewer slides down the slide, every time the Hogs score, a lucky 500 level fan will get to slide down the slide.

Much safer than the zip line they were first thinking about. I just hope those guy from Schlitterbahn didn't design our slide.

And that folks is why they left the gap, it was designed on the restroom stall walls and they looked down and said “neat” we need a gap like that.

Does anybody know about the huge gap in the upper deck on the new construction. It's big enough that daylight is showing thru below where I assume the loge boxes will be. Can't tell from camera angle if there is one on the other side or not. Can someone with a construction background fill me in? Just curious

The spilled beer has run off somewhere.......if you are talking about where the upper deck sections join where the "Gap" is and the part with the Broyles Center behind it, not sure. I'll make sure I pick center-West on my seats, first I had noticed it. I'm sure they have a plan for it.

... it's all part of the 90% plan - tradition is very strong at the UofA.

The other 10% will be finished by 2029....I believe the west side facade and the newly developed gap are part of the same project.

I've organized a crew of guys that take orders from fans and bring it back to you at your seat...for a small fee.

Duh.....it is the back wall of the corner aquarium that is going in next week. There will be some art students coming over from the university to paint the aqua color with some detailed underwater vegetation.

There is only one Razorback and only one stadium with an 15,000 gallon aquarium. Bass Pro Shop - eat your [CENSORED] heart out.

We will get about 90% finished....who really cares about the other 10%?

It's like a United built home, but instead a stadium

In other words everything will be done but the baseboards and quarter-round............
