Unread post by appst1992 » Tue Apr 06, 2021 5:57 am

What are the chances we see the NEZ overhang like was originally planned?

I would assume zero if not done by now


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

I think they read this message board and decided against it because of the view it potentially blocks of Howard's Knob.

It will partially cover some of the NEZ seats. They are trying to figure out how to avoid blocking field view from the NEZ room. A retractable awning of some description. Although I surmise Boone wind will rule that out

I heard from reliable sources it was deemed unnecessary because of the Dome project for 2025.

I heard similar things. Makes sense with us set to host the CFB Championship in 2028.

That was cancelled in late 70’s when they realized you couldn’t see Howard’s Knob.

Shouldn’t be a problem. Since they can’t dig down to lower the field, they are going to bring Howard’s Knob closer to the stadium.

I am not sure moving Howard's Knob will be approved by ESPN. That is where they have their cameras placed for televised games.

Are you guys talking about the awning over the NEZ seating sections or the lack of columns at the ground level?

When we bought NEZ seats it was advertised that they would install a cover after the first season it was complete. It was a big selling point for my fair-skinned wife.

Just hope those advertised plans don't change as many things have over the years.

I thought they switched to a glass dome so Howard’s Knob could still be seen.

Easy enough to to find out. They are offering tours to current owners or prospective buyers throughout April. I’m sure you can ask then.

I’ve heard the dome will be fully retractable so that Cline can still see his knob.

I just hope to get to sit in my/our new seats this year!

The Clark Dome will be awesome for hosting the championship game!

Coming from the one who has to squat to pee.
