For months now, Tom Jurich has almost studiously avoided the question about the expanded capacity of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium when improvements are complete this summer.

With construction nearing a conclusion, he finally ended the suspense during the University of Louisville Cardinal Caravan visit with fans at Captain’s Quarters on Thursday.

“We will have over 57,000 seats,” he said. “All chair backs.”

That should end the speculation in the local media where estimates have varied widely for a couple of years.
