I'd assume the altitude chamber thing Fogelman is donating as well as previously-discussed upgrades to the weight room.

Whatever they do hope it includes cleaning and a redo of the roofing with some sort of white material. What's up there now (mildewed, dirty and tarnished) just doesn't mesh with the other adjacent buildings and stadium.

Google maps doesn't update their aerial photos very often so even if we clean it up, most folks will still see nastiness in the most common way folks see roofs...

P. S. It was originally white. New Orleans weather is just a bit conducive to growing funk. :wink:

Not a big fix. Check the Superdome roof. Spray the anti-fungus/mildew paint/urethane and move on.

I believe an academic area is being added or expanded so athletes have more space to study, meet with tutors, etc.

Not the best example; it's involved in ongoing litigation because the anti-nasty stuff didn't work....

Here’s a tweet with some changes to the football offices. Pretty nice looking.

I like the NFL wall, and smart of them to put each team on a removable plate so names can easily be added. Wish there were more names... (some schools couldn't do this, it would take several more walls)

Looks nice. Keeping up with the Joneses...
