If reports are to be believed, and the 125 is what Charlotte puts forth and JR matches it (hopefully) we are talking about a 250 mill upgrade.
Chicago did a big upgrade a few years back and they played at the University of Illinois' Memorial Stadium for an entire year.
Where do the Panthers play while these huge upgrades unfold?


You cannot do 125 to 250 mill in upgrades between a January start date and September of the same year.

Most likely, I would think, is Clemson, followed closely by UNC (since their recent upgrades offer a TON of seats).

You have to consider the bears stadium was in very bad shape, we are not doing any structural work.

Back to Clemson for one year makes a lot of sense.

I was there for the first game. Upper deck gave me vertigo.

This cannot be completed in 8 months.

I agree with lightsout, Clemson is the only option.

Put me in charge of the $250 million, and I will provide a written guarantee that no games will be affected.

Should there be any complaints about the work, please send them to my p.o. box in the strip mall. I may be temporarily out of pocket.

125 is more than just bigger jumbo-trons and escalators. 250 makes the opportunities almost limitless.

Can we dome BOA for 250 mill...........................I kid, I kid.

Unless they move to Kings Mountain and start over, there will never be a true tailgate experience at Panther Stadium.
