App State Stadium Addition
The following article is not true if you have read it:

Boone, NC - Kidd Brewer Stadium will be renamed to Lowe's Stadium. Lowe's will provide $25 million for naming rights for 10 yrs.

Seating will immediately be expanded to 35,000 seats with completion date for start of 2014 football season. Plans include expansion to 43,000 seats within 5 yrs. The track will be removed and the lower level will be restructured with steel frame, similar to east side upper level, at a slightly milder grade extending closer to field providing an increase of 6,000 seats. The existing upper level of west stands will be refitted with 5,000 stadium seats for premium season ticket holders. The south endzone will be closed in to match both the lower level of east and west sides providing an additional 5,000 seats. This leaves the north side open to retain the scenic view of Howard's Knob. Future addition of upper level in south endzone will provide another 8,000 seats in next expansion phase planned for 2018.

Athletic Director Charlie Cobb said "The fans have supported App State football for many years by attending game after game with overflow crowds, many without the benefit of hard seats. It is long overdue that these dedicated fans will now have physical seats to meet the demand of our ever increasing numbers of supporters."

RE: App State Stadium Addition
Again, it is going around and plans have not been released, even though it has been stated several times that
App State would announce their stadium enlargement plans just as soon as we went FBS.

Very nice. Jealous of the 25 million from Lowe's too.

Article is fake. While I have no doubt we'll start to develop an expansion plan in the immediate/near future. The above is a hoax.

Wish the moderators would move it to the other section and close it. But am tired of getting tweets and emails about this piece of garbage that's going around. People need to know or their sending it around will continue. Even got a phone call about it late this evening.

For the 3d Time: That article is a fake.

I wouldn't be shocked if ol' Larry Stone didn't float some further expansion money your way. Congratulations on today guys, I have a ton of App friends from my old days from Lowe's and knowing folks in Wilkes and down in Charlotte/suburbs.
On a separate note Laura Herron at UT-C should be slapped in the face. The thought that Benson called UT-C and expressed interest and they didn't take it is assenine.
