There is little parking, you can break a leg trying to walk around it, it has the acoustics of a tin can. Hopefully that renovation will repair all the obviously dangerous outside walkways and significantly improve the appearance of the stadium.

I think it serves UTSA purposes, it provides a great home field advantage and has plenty of capacity. It obviously takes the weather out of the game. I just argue with the thought it is a great facility just because it is a large dome.
The problem with large capacity stadiums is they are a turnoff with small crowds.

Exhibit A of what I'm referring to. Apogee was $70 mill total, the Alamodome just had $60 mill pumped into it. It's about to host the Final Four for like the fifth time. Dangerous walkways? That's a new one.

Youre really telling me this isn't a solid sports atmosphere:

Add 4 new video boards, ribbon boards, sound system, lighting, concessions, wider concourses, brand new, huge media room, locker rooms, among other improvements. It's not UTSA's and it's not on-campus but that's literally the only bad things anyone in CUSA can say about it.

ODU getting a much needed score board upgrade for baseball. This looks bigger than the FB one.
