Yes they are adding loges in the spots vacated by the media. But originally they were adding loges on the east side as well.  I guess we didnít raise enough cash


That was never the plan as far as I know.

It wasnít. This guy is the Master of Misinformation.
If anybody has ever watched YSU football on TV, you couldn't help but notice the view from the "East" stands, It looks directly "West" (funny how that works) and directly INTO the sun each afternoon.  Terrible place for loges.  Looks like somebody got the call right on no East stands loges!  Terrible place to televise a game from also, but since we don't seem to have a TV deal, guess that point is mute.

Been on the East side since it opened, very rare that the sun was even close to being an issue. Considering that the camera will be higher than my seats therefore a better angle, I would not think that there is an issue here.

"Been on the East side since it opened,"  Is that the same as saying "I've never watched the game on TV?"  If you had you would have noticed the very bad glare problem and every televised afternoon game.

I have watched replays of games and do not recall a very bad glare, maybe my glasses need cleaned.

Here's a cool picture from ScoutingOhio's Mark Porter of campus yesterday with a drone up in the sky. Can see where Cafaro Field is going in on the bottom left and then where the parking lot is going in next to the east stands and the new press box.

Thanks for the post!!  Both offer great prospective, (close and overall) and are very informative. 
Frankly another accent color might be good with our boring old red and black, but perhaps that green isn't just right!

Thanks for the East Stands photos, this looks wonderful. Occasionally, we can get a view of the East side"s new addition via WKBN's weather cameras. Again thanks for the photos, I hope to get to one of the games this fall.

Um, It was the plan to add them there. Something went wrong.  Loges=$$$$$ and I think that the issues they had with the first contsruction company they chose caused them to pivot due to funding.

I vote for spending -0- on Beeghly until we have a plan  (and funding) for significant upgrades.  I'm thinking in the 75-100 million range.  If that sounds like a lot, and it does to me, check these out recent remodel projects:
U of Vermont 95 million
U of Dayton 72 million
U of Ill 30 million for upgrades to PRACTICE facility
U of Alaska 110 million   
All basketball, all updates to existing facilities.   We don't need an upgraded North entrance, we need to give Calhoun the tools to do his job successfully!

Go Guins I like your thought process on a total facelift but we need somebody to write a big check for about 50 million and maybe the state could fork out 25 million or so. We lost a big voice down in Columbus when Harry Meshel would get money for so many YsU projects.  Strollo has done a great job of doing small projects with money from the Penguin Club and from the Cafaroís and other local businessman
