Some nice shots from inside the stadium (not my photos).

I went by the stadium this AM to see the new tunnel. Crews were working so I didn't want to bother them but I did manage to take a couple photos.

Seats and tunnel looks great. I still think the lights are incredibly ugly though.

The lights definitely look like 'add-ons', and don't flow with the original architecture, at all.  I suppose they were going for utilitarian over architectural.  A for effort, C- for result.

Awesome!  This new renovation, IMHO really improved the look of the 'Shoe.  Not that it looked bad before...it just looks really great now.  

Thanks for posting DWright. I never would have found these otherwise.  Please leave a comment to receive your up-vote.

I'm not finished!  Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse.

Agreed, I always thought that part of the stadium looked unfinished.  I hope the lights aren't too bright, I loved the way the stands kind of faded to dark, it gave the impression the stadium went on forever.

I could stare at this for hours; it's so beautiful.

With the expanded seating, does anyone know/has anyone heard what the new projected capacity is? Is it a significant growth? The big games last year averaged around 105k according to wiki.

Lord, the south stands exterior facade is so horrible. I hope the next project is making that side worthy of being a part of Ohio Stadium.

What is going on the upper corners of the South Stands? It looks as though something is framed in there and there is a crane holding something up as well, both sides. Any ideas?

My guess is playclock.

I got a gray kitty, white kitty, tabby too, and a little orange guy who puts snakes in my shoes. Got mad MC skills, that leave ya struck, and I roll with my kitties and I'm hard as f*ck.

The play clock seems to still be on the tunnels for the middle 2 sections where the Block O is on the south stands, that's what I thought originally too, So I assumed it had to be something else.

Now we just need to make the top half of the south stands into a second deck, bring it closer to the field, and tuck another 5-7k underneath it.

THAT would be the loudest venue in America of any type.

Edit: Because everybody knows we need more pillars in the stadium to sit behind.

This is not my picture, but I saw it on Instagram this morning and thought it was definitely worth showing. The new tunnel is looking awesome!

Can't wait to see the Shoe again in person.  Cincy game.

Is it weird that I put on my helmet and shoulder pads from high school days and now running around pretending to run over everything as I score td's?
