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).
