Jim Sterk gave an interview to the Columbia Missourian this weekend, covering a wide array of topics. You can get predictably vague answers about Title IX investigations, Ehren Earleywine’s firing, etc., but toward the end of the piece he gave an update on the Faurot Field south end zone construction.
What sort of progress has been made in the construction of the new south end zone at Faurot Field?
“They’re still in the demolition phase. I believe the first of the month it totally goes down. They’re trying to salvage what’s salvageable in there, but the lockers, the seats, they’re gone. I haven’t looked from the inside to see what it looks like now, but I know part of it looks torn apart. But it’s getting there, and then they totally tear it down in the first part of March.”
Come the Sept. 1, 2018, home opener against UT Martin, what will the construction look like? Will it resemble what some fans saw at Arkansas’ Razorback Stadium last year?
“I think so. ... I think it will probably be similar. They were further along by the time we got there later in the season, but I think it’ll probably look a lot like that.”
Here are some shots of Arkansas’ stadium construction throughout 2017:

- When we re-rank the Mizzou’s Greatest list, we’re going to end up placing Karissa Schweizer quite high. A week after recording the fourth-fastest mile in NCAA history, she set the collegiate record in the 3000m at the Millrose Games in New York City.
- Mizzou Gymnastics damn near posted a score of 196+ in Athens, but it wasn’t enough against No. 147 Georgia.
- Brian Smith rested a few starters, but Mizzou Wrestling took down NIU, 24-12, all the same.
- Mizzou Tennis is no longer unbeaten. The Tigers dropped a road dual at Virginia Tech before sweeping Radford this weekend.
- Mizzou Softball beat Mizzou Softball this weekend.
