Since his first year as Indiana’s Athletic Director, Fred Glass has seen football attendance jump 32-percent. Season ticket sales this year are in line with last season.
Glass says fans will see some new features and modifications of others such as ‘the walk.’
“We’re going to reconfigure the red lot, where the fraternities and dormitories and kids like to have fun before the games and the team will actually walk through the center of that,” Glass says.
A large 200 foot “ribbon LED board” is being installed on the north end zone facade.
The gravel “purple” lot northwest of the stadium is now paved along with eight acres of green space. 730 new trees will be plated this fall.
Verizon and AT&T are updating their infrastructure to improve cell and texting service in time for the September 27th Maryland game.
And new clocks at some Bloomington bars and bookstores are counting down the minutes and seconds until the season opener against Indiana State Saturday at Noon. Hoosier great Anthony Thompson will be recognized during pre-game ceremonies.
