New pictures are after the jump but for an introduction here is an old picture of Neyland Stadium one of the greatest sites in college football.
The West side of the stadium is by far the most used including the gate 21 plaza in the bottom left corner above. Construction started last year with this…
This is what it use to look like. Find out what it looks like now. Here are some pictures of the renovations taken by me on Saturday July 3rd from completely outside the construction zone.
Gate 14 Entrance

Designed Brick work above Gate 14
The glassed Tennessee Terrace
Unfinished brick work that still needs to be done
The underside of the Terrace….will they be bricked or concrete encased?
The arches and Nice designed pattern above the arches
Nice Arches underneath the Terrace
They are also doing the inner arches as well which is a nice above and beyond touch

I wish they would have continued the columns on around to blend it in with Alumni from this angle and hide all the white painted steel
