Despite my inability to find any news sources with updates, the South Endzone at DKR is currently being renovated and will feature permanent stadium seating for the 2009 season. I'm not sure how far construction will proceed before next season to fully enclose the stadium, as pictured here, but the temporary bleachers are now gone and the south end is full of dirt piles and backhoes. Also, while I'm at it, I'd just like to say how wonderful the renovated North End is, what with the restaurants, the quiet, and the simple enjoyment of relaxing in the Horns' House.
Also, some raw nuggets from cyberspace:
College Football Live! places the 'Horns at No. 3 in their NCAA Football Family Atmosphere Rankings, markedly improved from last season's No. 9.
"The Texas program has enjoyed over a decade of strong leadership and coaching from head coach Mack Brown. Brown ensures his athletes avoid off-field distractions in a place where football players are treated with reverence. In addition, Brown is an advocate to several causes including the Texas Council on Family Violence."
The Swamp is undergoing renovations, and will soon be home to a brand new megatron.
"Fresh off two national football titles in three seasons, the University of Florida now gets championship-caliber stadium upgrades to match.
The Swamp will get a facelift as Florida negotiates a multimillion-dollar deal to add state-of-the-art video boards to the end zones, university officials told the Sentinel.
The biggest presence will come on the south end-zone board, a 137-by-30-foot space that will be covered by a Light-Emitting-Diode (LED) video screen, in time for the 2009 season's kickoff. That space is currently reserved for an orange-and-blue backdrop with a 28-by-21-foot video screen."
