Back in February of 2013, Texas A&M announced plans for a $450+ million renovation of Kyle Field that would appropriately take one of the most iconic stadiums in the country into the 21st century.
This morning the renovations of Kyle Field started a new chapter – literally with a bang – as crews used dynamite to implode of the West side of the stadium.
Hundreds gathered to see the historic moment, and while it is a bit sad to see history torn down, the renderings of what the Aggies are upgrading to make this moment more exciting than sad…at least to most.
Here’s a video of the implosion, along with a few reactions from Twitter.
