But, if you don't want me, or others, remarking in a derogatory manner, maybe you shouldn't post those pics and start this thread!

What do you mean.... I wasn't offended. I was actually AGREEING with you.

The workout facility hasn't been finalized... it's still in the air. They haven't found a site for it.... but I have.

As for the stadium, the only way they could improve it (and keep the football team playing there) is do a complete makeover. And that's not gonna happen.

Prairie View A&M's Blackshear Stadium (or Field.... scoreboard and press box have different titles)



Take a look at our beautiful, state of the art workout facility.....


I didn't photoshop this, there is actually barbed wire on the fence of the home side




The trailer concssion stands.....


When there are leaves on this tree, there is no scoreboard to see....


That's not a pile of wood you're seeing.... that's the old visitor side, which used to be the home side back in the 60's. It's actually sunken in the middle.


These are the ONLY restrooms we have. The men's restrooms have no urinals. 5 's


A close up on the visiors side. It's made of old wood boards and rusted metal. There are no stairs, so you have to crawl over people to get a seat. Of course, there would have to be alot of people in order for you to crawl over them, but that doesn't happen very often. Not at THIS stadium. 10 's



Just pathetic. The only thing they did to this press box was repaint it. WOW! What an improvement! 100's and a .
There are also no locker rooms. The players have to walk to the basketball gym, instead. This place isn't even high school worthy.

WORST.... STADIUM.... EVER!!!

Goshh!!!!! what a bad Stadium

NEWS:

Just 2 weeks ago, there was a vote on raising the athletic fees....

Of course, the students voted no.

Part of it would have went to new facilities (including the stadium), but that would have taken years....

Well I don't have to tell you that it's the exact opposite here in the states.

Our soccer field is just a field with a couple of risers....

That is a sad "stadium". It's more like a neglected track with unmanicured lawn in the middle. I think the ITT football stadium is better than that sad piece of field. Why don't they just play in a public park, it would probably be better for the morale of the team. Holy cow that is sad.
