  • BYRD STADIUM EXPANSION NEARLY COMPLETE AT MARYLAND

         Maryland AD Debbie Yow's "vision" of improvements to Byrd
    Stadium are nearly complete, according to the Baltimore SUN.
    Yow's logic according to the SUN's Paul McMullen:  "To get out of
    debt, get more paying customers at football games; to get more
    fans, win more games; to win more games, get better players; to
    get better players, show them a fancy facility when they make a
    recruiting visit."  The "costliest phase" of reconstruction has
    been $19M spent on two new decks on the north side of Byrd
    Stadium, which will be open for tomorrow's game.  The only work
    not completed is on restrooms and concession stands (Baltimore
    SUN, 9/8).
