      I was in the area at the cemetery visiting my mom. RIP. So it was convenient to launch my drone and get a few shots of the stadium expansion. Looking goooood.

      heard from a good source, there are plans in the works to close the north end as well! 58k+ when all is said and done.

        I thought we were told that they couldn’t push the NEZ any further north because covering the road wasn’t allowed.

        I would not be in favor of changing the north end zone. I enjoy the view of the old fieldhouse. It gives the stadium a bit of vintage, tradition, and mystique.

        If true, that would be awesome. Who is your source?

      What happened to the U T A H on the field house? I assume new shingles were needed?

        The roof had to be re-done and the UTAH on top will be repainted

      Thanks Tony.  Living in Idaho and miss the place.  Speaking of RIP.  We should give thanks to Bob Garff, (who sadly passed away last year to CV-19) for his devotion to the U.  We have him and many others to thank for that incredible facility.  Win baby win!

      For those of us that don’t live in SLC, these pics are like a cold beer on a hot day.  Thanks, Tony!!!

      So are they prepping the field for a monster truck show or motocross race or something?

        Yeah there’s some kind of motocross type gig going on. The whole tailgate lot was full of related vendors.
