Thursday Thirteen - UCF has changed

Thirteen Things about The University of Central Florida in Pictures - Brighthouse Networks Stadium

View from the press box.

Outside - street level.

One of two mounted knight statues.

Tim Christopher - my little brother and one of the men behind the internet connectivity in the stadium.

View of the press box from field level.

The networking department has some hot wheels!

Workers are reinforcing the stadium supports to keep it from bouncing. The syudents discovered that if they jump, it feels like a trampoline.

The knight charging to victory outside of the stadium.

Inside the press box, they have connections for 96 members of the press through ethernet cabling.

Another shot of the press box.

The visiting team seating is in the endzone that gets the sun throughout the game.

Opening day is August 30 against South Carolina State University. The grass is looking good and the stripes will be painted in the next 3 weeks.
