Bad publicity for UCF in the middle of a good season. Not every structure will have these issues but let it be a warning to never stop evaluating your physical plant.

This is my all-time favorite story about rusting stadiums requiring renovation. I simply have to ask if UCF had a similar issue???

IIRC, Tulane Stadium wasn't far removed from that.

Wow, lightly-treated steel for light duty use in a massive stadium in Florida humidity. Good money-saving choice there! :shock:

I remember when they built it, hearing how they "went cheap" by making it mostly steel (way less concrete) and my first thought was, "in Florida humidity and (salty) marine air?" You could kinda see this coming.

I remember reading a similar article about FAU. And I believe FIU did similar.
