Not sure where the conference will be 10 years from now, or attendance figures for that matter..... a new stadium seems far fetched.

In the interest of keeping the "look" of the rest of the campus...any and all additions to the stadium should not...in any way, shape or form...match the visual appearance of the existing structure

I think we should paint the entire thing with the orange and brown paint that fades to pink and purple. Granted, it would continue the current theme and therefore go against the trends of BGSU construction, but it would be entertaining to have something that is accurate for about a year or two and then go WAY off.

Or, we could go with an outside-the-box concept: Image

One of the folks in the athletic department tweeted me that those renderings are at least five years old and there are no current plans related to it.

Renovating the Doyt? New indoor practice facility? Maybe Bob is going to cut football, then hope alumni save it, then renovate the Doyt. Just like he did with baseball. Brilliant Bob.

Bob's playing 3D chess...you're playing solitaire....I don't see a path to compromise

Correct. Bob is playing 3D chess. 3D chess with borderline illegal tactics like student fees. Brilliant Bob

but the angles are wonderful in the bowl shape. It makes for great sight lines from any seat. That, I suspect, might be the most expensive feature to reproduce in new construction. It would be a shame to go from a concrete shaped structure to a metal frame straight line structure that looks like the seating for baseball that looks cheap.


The way the stands curve around the field is nice. I've never been a fan of the pitch, though, which is awfully gentle. Other stadiums, including Northern Illinois, have a more steep slope, which I think makes for a better viewing experience. (When I had season tickets at BGSU, I always got them 48 or so rows up.)

But this is a nitpick. I wouldn't tear these stands down over it.

I would never tear anything down at the Doyt, mostly because it probably would never be rebuilt.

I could see some minor renovations to concessions, but wasting any time or effort on a massive addition would be another mistake. If we start drawing 20,000 real people to games then we can discuss major additions/renovations. BGSU could play their home games at BGHS and really not have any trouble handling the demand...no reason to double down and waste resources.

I believe it was 2015 when the Wood County Health Department finally cracked down on the Doyt concession stands. If I remember correctly a lack of running hot water was part of the issue. The following week, an athletics administrator tweeted a photo of himself getting ready to eat a Doyt Perry hot dog signaling the problems were fixed.

When I snarf down a Doyt Dog...I like to imagine I'm eating one from the glorious 2003 season...and I could be right
