In case you’ve been off Twitter for the past few hours, the media tour of Commonwealth Stadium just wrapped up. Drew will have a full recap of it on the site for you tonight, along with plenty of pictures, but there was one bit of news to pass along. UK senior associate athletic director Russ Pear reiterated to reporters that the stadium will ready for the opener on September 5, albeit not 100% finished.
“We’re going to be ready to go,” Pear said, telling reporters that they expect the concourses and amenities will be finished for week one; however, he did admit there will still be some things to finish up, or as he called it, “the little things to make the house a home.”
I watched a few of the Periscope tours, and I’ll admit, I’m skeptical. There’s A LOT of work to be done. We’ll see what Drew thinks later.
