Those bathrooms on the south east corner on the 2nd level haven't been expanded or upgraded I'm guessing since they were put in back in the 1960s. Agree with El Gato about having a larger stadium than tempe. Unfortunately, it appears that Byrne is continuing his quest to reduce the stadium capacity. The original plant for the NEZ I was told by Dr. Shelton at a tailgate was around 65K JL said 62.5. Then Bryrne came up withj under 58K and I still have no idea how he managed to do that if you look at the area covered and the sizew of the old bleachers and come up with fewer ove3rall seats. But I have been assured it is fewer seats unless you include the terraced SRO. If GB keeps reducing capacity we should modify Hansen's helpful suggestion and petition Big Sky or WAC/MWC for admission so we could get away from Scott, officiating et al. We already have a Big Sky/WAC level OOC schedule. Have heard second hand that GB's capacity reduction is based on a way to increase pricesa based on supply and demand which seems to me to be kind of backwards thinking.I personally prefer a stadium look of 65,000 filled seats rather than 45,000 with lots of sky boxes. Either way we will need a higher level of competitiveness on the field.
One guess on the shrinking of the NEZ. It may well have been caused by the huge rise in construction costs during the time frame you mentioned. They may have downsized as costs for steel and concrete went up.
