This post will most likely be boring to somee. but maybe this will make sense as to why BYU did went this route.
Here's the article adressing changes to LES
Link to InfoComm here.
We have discussed this before, but reinforced for good measure. BYU deptartments always work with a 2 year budget. What see now, was discussed three or more years prior and funds secured two years prior to projects being rolled out. How about that, build as you go with no overhead for expenditures. We all should be grateful BYU works this way, very smart as well as addressing the issues at hand.
So while some would like to see a sound upgrade, keep in mind one word: Budget. BYU had other plans for LES changes after the sound upgrade project was completed. What many of fans will experience at LES this season (you can see the work they are doing there now) will be better access to and from all levels, more comfortable access and bathroom while not taking away from what LES is also used for during the summer, Stadium of Fire. Access fo the field is still there.
Like anything else, all projects take money. BYU does the best with what they have and here is the best part-ALL PAID FOR.
