Aesthetic improvements continue at Carter-Finley. As the picture below indicates (taken from this source), there is a new addition to the wolves’ den tunnel leading from the Murphy Center to Wayne Day Field.
I like it. I’m all for improvements like this that add some pizzaz to the place. I think I would like it more if the statue was set closer to the goal post thereby protruding a little further from the tunnel generating the appearance of the wolf running ahead of the pack. I’m not sure many people will be able to see it set back in the tunnel like that.
The real question continues to be why the east side concourse is yet to have gotten its renovation of upgraded restrooms and concession areas? It is unacceptable that everyone in the stadium has shelled out money for lifetime rights but only half of the stadium has been upgraded with new amenities. The good people on the east side who already brave the elements to sit in the sun deserve improved restrooms and amenities as much as anyone.
Of course, it is no surprise that the side of the stadium where the students sit is the side that has not yet been upgraded. Hell, the administration can’t even figure out a way to get the students into the stadium in time for the games, they surely could care less about providing them adequate facilities.
Related to this point, a poster on Pack Pride made an interesting observation when he/she asked about North Carolina’s building code regarding the minimum number of urinals/water closets for a 60,000 seat stadium?
