Notre Dame's $400 million plus "Crossroads" expansion to fabled Notre Dame stadium is expected to be finished before kickoff vs Temple in early September.
First off thank god they are redoing the bathrooms. While it may be charming to some to piss in a nearly 100 year old urinal I for one hated the smell of someone else's urine that burned the nostrils upon entry. I don't want to taste the bathroom walls and floors when I'm taking a pisser either. But hey that's just me. The fact that they are renovating the bathrooms with new toilets but also keeping the 1930's charm is a nice touch.
I know the players will think it's cool but I'm a little disappointed they gutted the original home team locker room. I've been in the locker room a couple of times and you can't help but get those chills/goosebumps on the back of your neck when looking at it. And no I'm not talking about the creepy chills of a Penn State locker room. Just the aura of knowing Rockne and Leahy and Holtz gave inspiring pep talks to their players before battle was one to make the hair stand up and become fully aroused. Reminder again NOT LIKE PENN STATE SHOWERS.
At least the stairway to the tunnel from the ND locker room will remain the same. That's a tradition unlike any other and the players will still hit the Play Like A Champion Today sign. Also I think it's cool that the visiting team will come out of a separate tunnel. Hopefully the home crowd can give them an intimidating welcome as they come out of the new tunnel.
All in all I'm looking forward to seeing all the new renovations to Notre Dame stadium. The one I'm most looking forward to is the new video board which as you know ND has never had.
