    K-State construction of their new press boxes/suites/etc. on the west side of their stadium is nearly completely. Here's a photo with the old press box super imposed to give you an idea of how much bigger the new one is.

    Its really pretty crazy how much they expanded and upgraded. It really needed it though, the old one was pretty shoddy despite the face lift it had gotten about a decade ago.

    View from inside today. Getting close.

    Inside seems nice, but the outside looks like they copied Lane.

    That does look pretty similar. Oddly enough the President of KSU, Kirk Schulz, is a Virginia Tech grad. Coincidence? Maybe not!

    Whats funny is, while Nebraska is adding a shit ton more seats, K-State is actually giving up some seats in favor of better facilities and more luxury boxes.

    Still, it needed to be done. That press box/west stadium was not indicative of a program that wants to play big boy football. So good on them.

    Meaning the facilities did not match the level/quality of the product being presented on the field. We all know that facilities are playing a bigger role in recruiting and if K-State wants to recruit well and present themselves as a national brand they needed to have facilities that present them in that way. The west stadium expansion lives up to that. I would look for Vanier (offices, locker rooms, training facility at the north end of the stadium) to be updated within the next 3 to 5 years as well.

    Damnit.... I have some cool ones from the crow's nest on top of the new press box, but they won't load to imgur for some reason.

    They enclosed the NE corner, completing the full loop and adding another giant video board. Looks pretty good.
