    2015 is in the books and now work has begun on Phase II of the JRS renovations. Here is what is in store for Phase II:

    The field is being removed, cranes are parked outside the stadium and the roof is set to be assembled in the parking lot as early as next week.

    Current field view:

    When completed 92% of the stadium seating will be in the shade for a 1pm kickoff come September.

    I love that it will put shade on our sidelines and make the away team melt in the sun

    The canopy structure pieces were laying around the West parking lot all season. That's what made parking twice as bad.

    I wonder why they don't put the boards in first. You figure it would be much easier without a canopy.

    Stadium is going to look fantastic. I just hope it's strong enough to withstand a big hurricane - South Florida is certainly overdue for one.

    The columns and canopy is supposed to be hurricane proof.

    It should be fine in a hurricane, assuming that the contractors don't cut too many corners.

    Hopefully they don't build it like they built our offensive line. :rimshot:

    Titanic was supposed to be nearly unsinkable as well.

    If you look at the canopy the sides are open.....a wide gaping hole for the wind to rush through with noting to stop it....so yeah, kinda OL like.

    I think it looks great now but renovations need to be made if they want the Super Bowl to return. I'm most impressed our owner is footing the bill.

    Why? Owners should pay for stadium new-builds or renovations. They have very little impact on the local economy and if you are a business owner you should be responsible for your investment.

    The A+ goes to our local governments for not bending and breaking.
