MISSING SOME CHARM? In Texas, Travis Yoesting wrote the stadium is a "football cathedral, a sports Mecca that will be the end voyage of many a pilgrimage in the coming years." However, at the moment, the "sterile structure completely lacks character." Jones may want to "work on filling up his stadium ... with any sort of semblance of character." Yoesting: "The stadium at present is incredibly stale. It's a gargantuan gray mass. Sure it's silver here or white there and maybe some dull blue over yonder, but it comes off as sterile and empty" (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAM, 7/30).
GIVING THE TEAM A LIFT: Jones was the subject of the "Sunday Conversation" on ESPN's "SportsCenter" last night, and he said the new stadium "should lift expectations" for the team on the field. Jones: "This stadium can play a role in how well we play" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 8/2).
