Louisville Football Rendering Revisited

A familiar image, even outdated and revised numerous times, this architectural rendering of an expanded Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, serves as a great reminder of where the University of Louisville football program is headed. Less than three months now the place will be packed with 57,000-plus fans. The observer will be headed out there again with the Nikon soon for another update on the progress. Meanwhile, click on the photo to get the full effect.

    Not to be a buzzkill, but that’s an old design that was abandoned when the expansion was scaled back. The upper deck is indented in the upper corners and the sout end wrap-around deck is more angled, with a larger scoreboard.

    I realized all that when I posted it, Marc, but it still gets me excited. The overall expansion will still have the same effect as far as I’m concerned. No one has visited the stadium or taken more photos of the expansion than the observer.

    See if you can find out the random selection going on about installing seats on the east side. Looks like a crossword puzzle.

      Paul, if I asked those guys that question, you would probably find my body stuck under one of those seats on Sept. 4th. I’m pretty sure the seat installation assignment goes to the union worker with the lowest seniority.
