Happy New Year guys....Does anybody have any recent photos of the construction at BDS? If they were previously posted and I missed them I apologize.

You can find a lot of them at Greg Byrne's Twitter

@tider79, glad you started this thread. I thought about posting something like it earlier when I saw the tweets from Byrne, specifically the one of the media box. @OldPlayer was it you ... talking about where they were going to be stuck?

Yup. I mentioned that they're moving it to the other side and the question of which side would be the home side. The current home side gets shade earlier which is a benefit. The "new" side is where Coach Bryant had the team and allowed the cameras to see his face, not his butt.

We know the cameras are not moving even if the press boxes are. I have not seen an answer to any of the rest of these though.

How do we know this? They won't want to do the wiring to have cameras on both sides (they'll still need to do the broadcasters' on set recaps and pregame intros) and wiring replay monitors in addition to all the cameras to a single production truck will be a nightmare. It will be a production nightmare.

I have seen another tweet asking about it and the answer was they won't move. The broadcasters and cameras are definitely on different runs so they ahve to run 2 no matter what.

You're referring to the fiber optics and their runs? I'd wondered about that and believe we touched on that very thing a few weeks ago when we were all discussing the renovations. As I recall they are only a few years removed from their latest upgrade (which would be the second since the launch of SECN and the studios they built within Bryant Denny.)
