Less than five months ago, mass excavations began on the site of what will become Colorado State's new home stadium. Yesterday the school released a video of athletic director Joe Parker donning a hard hat and taking a tour of the construction site.
It may be hard to visualize now, but in a matter of 11 months the construction zone that you see in the video will be an impressive finished college football stadium, with only the finishing landscaping touches to add. Target date to have the stadium ready is February of next year, ready to kick off the 2017 season.
Parker, along with one of the workers, walk through the bones of the stadium structure, noting areas that will be transformed into coaches offices, hydrotherapy rooms, and the 50-yard line of the stadium.
