Non-Game Action Musings from Rutgers vs. Louisville

Rutgers vs. Louisville - October, 2013

On a recent visit to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium (PJCS) we asked our standout staff photographer to capture something different.  What we were looking for was something that took the focus away from the on-field action and put it on what makes our enjoyment of gameday possible and some of the details we completely miss.  PJCS offers a unique experience.

Does UC’s Nippert Stadium Expansion Go Far Enough?

Nippert Stadium RenderingThere you have it.  The visual answer to what $86 million looks like when it is added to the fifth oldest stadium in college football, Nippert Stadium.  Who doesn’t love renderings?  And this one is particularly exciting.  Bearcat fans have to be thrilled how this will add to an already wonderful gameday/gamenight atmosphere.  Despite the lack of seating capacity by some standards, UC has one of the best venues for viewing the game.  Nestled in a former ravine of Burnet Woods, the stadium holds noise and puts fans right on top of the action.

But will this expansion accomplish all the right goals?
