When was last time the Rock was painted?
And how much does this cost? It would be nice to have the concrete painted to prevent the mildewing?

USM signed a contract with Rhino Shield Paint of Maryland in May. They will be applying the superior adhesion and ceramic coating technology in August. This will provide the stadiums exterior protection against mold, mildew, and algae growth. Rhino Shield is warrantied to last 10 years.

Every year, when those kids paint Eagle Walk. Painting Eagle Walk this year could void the 10 year Rhino Shield warranty. Check with the legal team.

Only after the new shade canopy is installed over the south endzone. The most dramatic addition to MM Roberts Stadium this season is the open-air canopy, providing shade for 92% of the south endzone while allowing natural light to still reach the playing field.

New MM Roberts Canopy facts:
4,000 tons of steel will be used to build the Canopy
Canopy is supported by 6 concrete “super columns” which support in excess of 2 million lbs, as well as hurricane force winds
Cables up to 5” in diameter support the 50’ wide by 150’ long canopy
The top of the Canopy structure is 100’ off the ground
Transparent inner edge is made out of a pillowed EFTE foil system
Three cranes were used to build the canopy. The largest crane will have a lifting capacity of 50 tons each and will have booms almost 200 ft in height

Construction of the canopy should be completed in August before painting commences.

Bill said it was necessary to a do a few things a year to the stadium. This sounds really good! Wonder the cost.

We can afford it. They are using the funds from admission the new unicorn habitat the Biology department put in the middle of the walking track over west of Pride field.

This is fantastic. I hope they offer rides during tailgating to make some money to fix up the coliseum. This, along with the flamingos in the fountain should bring in a lot of new fans.
