Don't Turn Around! (New Rule for 2009)

If you go to the Rutgers Stadium expansion page and scroll down to the Construction Photo Gallery, you'll see that they've added another slideshow today. There aren't any dramatic external structural changes from last screenshot I posted a week ago, but they are installing seats and the video screens above what will be the new student section. Rather than show someone else's new photos, I dragged out one of my own and pasted it up above. It shows the old screen with its familiar STS and PSE&G ads as the team sang a postgame "On the Banks of the Old Raritan" (you can tell the picture's from 2007 because you see the top of the temporary bleachers that were first installed for the 2006 Louisville game, but were removed for construction to begin before the 2008 season).
The students used to be able to watch themselves on screen when they were at the opposite end of the Stadium, but with the new larger video display directly above the new endzone seats where the students will be sitting, we're going to have to make sure that there's a new "Don't Turn Around to Watch Yourself" rule added to all the other rules that incoming Rutgers freshmen have to learn by heart.
