If it is major then I would guess that we will be getting Press boxes.

Sorry ScarletRock, umbrella's are not permitted in the stadium

I would guess it will be new loges.  Hannon once said that they make the most money there, more than in the stands.  Adding more or upgrading existing would boost revenue needed to build the football program.  Why would a press box be relevant?  We need more money because the money games will soon go away.  Have to think of it like a business.  The question is do they have the sponsors to support more?  I don't know, but that is what I would do with the money.

Has to be some press boxes/broadcast booths on the east side, instead of that little tent sitting up there. Maybe some places for cameras to sit on that side for televised games so we don't have to look at absolutely garbage replays from 2 cameras sitting high as hell on the west side.

Not merely a new press facility but also a cla$$room for our multimedia students.  A wonderful gift.

Penguinpower,

As the media is relocated into the new facility, their space on the west side will be converted into additional loges.  As you note, that is where the money is.  Yes, the demand for more loges is there.  Strollo had said that there is a waiting list so those folks can now be accommodated.  This is a double win! :)

Will give the east side a more professional look.  What's the timetable?
