Nippert Defilement - Saw it Tonight
Saw what has been done to Nippert. It looks totally bastardized.

Eight rows in each corner carved out and the front row of entire field.

It was obvious Bohn was getting pushback about the defilement as he tried to say the corner mods benefitted player safety. Then he asked how many rows folks thought had been removed. He ignored the response of "TOO MANY".

If it was player safety I suspect it would have happened at an earlier rebuild. Has there been any player injured?

Bottom line the changes remind me of the person that adds an aluminum patio cover to an otherwise beautiful classic home. It may be utilitarian but it is UGLY.

So, is it safe to say the big dollar UC donors were less than happy with the FCC reconfiguration of Nippert? That "safety issue" has been an alternative fact from the get go. Anybody unhappy enough to withhold support? I am, but my contribution alone would hardly be missed.

The several I talked to were not happy but none said they would quit.

I saw it last week prior to the Tulsa game. What they have done looks very professional of course - it's not done cheaply. But I just think it looks odd.

The football field is going to look small in that huge expanse of open space.

It's very odd looking. Somehow makes the entire stadium look much smaller.

Well folks we are in the G4 and our tv contract is peanuts. If you want things like good coaches, renovated arenas, etc, you find alternate sources of revenue. If UC was in the ACC they would have told this soccer club to pound salt, but we're not so we make concessions like this.

Yeah - but it is not yet clear to me what we are getting for this.

Saw it not too terribly long ago. Definitely different. Not horrible. Will be interesting to see how they implement the replacement seating.

Luckily, thanks to the added income (per Bohn) we are getting the fancy video board, sound system, and ribbon boards for this upcoming season. Something Nippert has been clamoring for for ages.

I'm sure the spin doctors will be out on this, but Nipper is basically the coolest, most unique thing about our football program, and we sell it out like cheap whore to soccer hipster millenials.

The best part about Nippert is that even though we have a much smaller capacity than places like Ohio Stadium, for a big game it can get just as loud and it feels like the fans are ptactically on the field. Now we are going to have a miniature version of Paul Brown Stadium.
