Art! We have art!
According to the meeting's agenda, Mizzou is scheduled to present the plans on Thursday. The Intercollegiate Athletics Master Plan Update reads as follows:
"The University of Missouri-Columbia presents an informational update of the Intercollegiate Athletics’ (ICA) Master Plan focusing on immediate needs on campus and associated projects to support ICA. The ICA Master Plan is a multi-year vision which focuses on the facility needs of Mizzou student-athletes as well as Tiger Fans, students, alumni, staff and donors. Student-athletes are valued as learners, citizens and competitors – from MU’s coaching staff to the state-of-the art facilities, the goal of the athletic department is to encourage every Mizzou student athlete to become a champion. The ICA Master Plan addresses possible areas of improvement for all 20 varsity sports teams and ensures the athletic department always offers its student-athletes the highest quality facilities that encourage academic integrity, social responsibility and competitive athletic excellence. The ICA Master Plan is included within the MU Campus Master Plan, which is presented to the Board of Curators for approval every three years. The next formal presentation of the Campus Master Plan for approval by the Curators is scheduled for June 2017."
Curious what Mizzou's proposed south end-zone facility might look like: pic.twitter.com/3IlGhVepod— Tod Palmer (@todpalmer) October 4, 2016
I like this a lot, and not only because of the random presence of David Freese and Truman. I was struggling to visualize how these changes would take shape, particularly because of the large hill behind the south end of the stadium. These drawings appear to simply fill in and level off that hill.
This would seem to fit Jim Sterk's requirement that this be unique, and in theory it will fit the architecture of the rest of the stadium. Consider me intrigued.
Energy, energy, energy, energy, energy
I think I'm going to enjoy this team. I don't know if it will be any good, but I will enjoy it.
