Hey my flip phone has a camera, even does color. My season tickets are offered on the east side again, wondering if we will be able to enter on the east side or have to walk around
I was watching the opening of an OLD James Bond move the other day and he had this state-of-the-art bag phone in his car.  We've come a long way baby!  A car without seat heaters, blind spot warning or navigation system?  Unthinkable!

Great!  Just so long as YSU is taking care of every minority group, that's all that matters!  The "anti-socials" have been ignored far too long!

Thanks!  I didn't notice the 2 anti-social guys, they must have been and McD's for a senior coffee, but I'm sure they'll be back for gameday!  One of the twitter comments was something about being basically a press box.  I thought that was EXACTLY what it was going to be?  I know they will have some training/class facilities, but this was always about replacing the embarrassing TV press bos, wasn't it?

It's a press box with classrooms in the back. All home and away TV and Radio booths are going over there. Scoreboard operator, public address and instant replay as well. The booths where they used to be on the west side will be used to create 4 more loges.

yep, it was a good plan and long overdue from day one.  Glad to see it moving ahead. Now all we need is a TV deal!

Wasnít the original plan to add loges to the other side.  From whet I gather they could raise enough money to that. Itís been a botched expansion from the outset.

They're adding loges on the home side.

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.

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.
