Aggies thrilled about Kyle Field's redevelopment
COLLEGE STATION, Tx (KYLE) — After months of speculation, the wait is finally over and Aggie fans everywhere now know what Kyle Field will look like.
"It's going to be a beautiful stadium, oh my goodness," said A&M sophomore, David Sargent.
This week the Board of Regents approved the $450 million project making the Kyle Field redevelopment the most extensive and expensive collegiate stadium renovation in history.
And while most are thrilled with the designs, not everyone likes it.
"I think it's cool but it kind of looks over the top, more like a professional stadium," freshman Anne McGinnis said.
In order to make room for the 102,500 some historic buildings like G. Rollie White will be torn down.
Lyle Weathersby said, "It's kind of disappointing because you know they're historical landmarks but oh well."
But most Aggies understand that in order to be the best; it's out with the old and in with a new.
"To be completely honest with you, I think it makes a bold statement," said Sargent. "I think it's getting a lot of attention, that it will get a lot of attention and people are going to start to expect a lot from us now."
Renovations will start this year after the 2013 season in November and construction is supposed to be completed by August 2015.
