Could Memorial Stadium be getting bigger? That is what the University of Nebraska is trying to find as they are asking for Husker season ticket holders and fans to fill out a short survey asking them about possibly expanding on the East side of the stadium.

“We are actively seeking input from our season ticket holders and fans on a potential upgrade and expansion of what we firmly believe is already one of the best college football venues in America,” said Paul Meyers, Nebraska’s Associate Athletic Director for Development.

“We are considering adding suites and/or club seating, and/or additional seats to the East Stadium,” Meyers said. “For us to make educated decisions, it’s vital that we first evaluate the interest level.”

I wouldn’t mind seeing some sort of expansion over on the east side as long as they can do some work on the concourses and make it so all the seats are not expensive club level or suites only. Let’s let some average fans be able to sit in those seats without paying a $1000+ seat donation with their season tickets. While it would look cool to mirror the West stadium side with press boxes and suites I don’t think that would a good expansion.

Before going through a huge expansion, lets get that sound fixed in the stadium so people like myself who sit in the South end zone can actually hear!

Memorial Stadium just might get to 90-100k people which would look very nicely in the Big10 to go along with Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State who all have huge stadiums. Do you think this will affect the sell out streak? I don’t because Nebraska fans will keep that record going for a very long time. About the only thing I see happening is resellers not getting as much money for their tickets as there will be more tickets available.
