This isn't easy to do because the argument can be made that one isn't better than the other; they're just all unique.

1. South Alabama - Brand new and checks all the boxes.
2. Texas State - View of the outside and inside of stadium top notch
3. Troy - End zone and behind-the-stands facility are great. Looks very good on TV.
4. App State - Same as Troy but no horseshoe, though hill a big improvement
5. Coastal Carolina - Expansion to horseshoe looks good. Worthy of hosting bowl game.
6. Arkansas State - Waterfalls are nice. Amenities/facilities look nice.
7. Georgia State - Pro-quality facilities but needs a lot to fully transform into a football-orientation
8. Louisiana - It's big. It's not immediately apparent what the highlights are in terms of amenities.
9. Georgia Southern - It looks aesthetically fine (prettiest little stadium), but seems like it needs some modernization.
10. ULM - Big. Reminds me of a smaller version of what I saw of Clemson growing up in SC in the early 90's. But that was almost 30 years ago. Needs updates.

Am I way off? About right?

I can agree. Our pressbox is glaringly dated, but the rest of the stadium is pretty modern. Endzone building, upperdeck, and all the concessions and auxilliary buildings were finished in 2014. Once we expand the opposite stands to match and include a modern pressbox, I think Paulson could look like a gem.

Watching the USA game on tv and it looks great, hard to argue with them number one, I’ll say this about APP, now that they have built the new facility, surrounded by the mountains, the noise has no place to go, 30,000 will sound like 60,0000, will be one of the most unique stadiums in the country.

First look at the remodeled Quinn Center into a basketball practice facility. Three courts with a volleyball court inside the middle one. This is something we've need a long time.

I drove through downtown Atlanta on the way to visit my uncle in Hiawasee a couple weeks ago. As we passed the stadium I told my family that was the new Georgia State football stadium. They all argued with me and stated it was the old Braves stadium. I agreed and said Georgia State has purchased it.

Definitely need signage from the highway. We didn’t see any signs saying that it was the new Georgia State stadium.

I have not come that way on the highway in a while. I know they were waiting on the naming rights to have DOT change the signs. What DO the signs say? Turner Field?

I posted this on the realignment/general college sports board but wanted to share here, too.

There still some final touches that need to be done to the end zone facility, but this is essentially the finished product from a bird's eye view. Plus I thought it would be nice to share the fall colors.

Though the fall colors are nice, I think the new turf looks tremendous! Great pic!

I wish the NEZ had a more finished look on the top of the building instead of utility units exposed.

Fair, however one side of our (GS) stadium is as nice as it gets and going with concrete was a way better option than erector set. To echo TBD, Until we modernize the home side stands and suites it is not going to be considered top tier even in the Belt much less G5. When we do, it will be as nice as anything in the country just not as big.

1.TXST Beautiful well laid out and had a long term plan.





2. USA New, fits perfectly for what they needed and room to grow. If you do erector for the second tier of stands set this is the way to do it.

Then everyone has issues and just opinions / personal preference at that point.

Most of us suffer from previous short sighted AD's and Presidents that did piecemeal additions with no master plan or envisioned the growth that could take place. Sam Baker was the king of building for yesterday. I will give TK some cred he built looking forward not two feet in front of him. We need to get back winning trophies but when we do I hope the renovation of the home side gets done.

I have always been partial to the design where there are massive first level below grade and you walk down to the seats vs walking up to all the seats.

Functionality-wise I would rank Arkansas State #1. Everything seems perfectly interconnected incl. IPF, locker room, etc. ULL has very nice and spacious training facilities but it’s not FB only, right?
