Staff photographer Dan Honda and I got a thorough tour this morning of Memorial Stadium and the new Simpson Student-Athlete High Performance Center. Impressive stuff.
I will have a story on the progress of the stadium project in the paper and online within a day or two and Dan will be assembling a multi-media digital presentation for our websites.
There is much work still to be done at the stadium, but a lot has been accomplished. The place should look terrific on Sept. 1 when Nevada visits for the debut game. Project director Bob Milano Jr. assured us the place will be up and running for the opener.
In the meantime, although seats aren’t yet in place — except in the student section, where the gold aluminum bleachers have been moved from the west side to the east — Cal has begun to allow season-ticketholders to select their seats.
Here’s a link to Cal’s website with all the details.
