    So uOttawa is getting a new stadium this year, here's a quick look at it.

    Well the advantages are that it's on campus, it's all theirs, it's using up land that they own, it seats 3,500 and they will use Lansdowne for the annual game against Carleton and home playoff dates. Plus it sounds like they have made adjustments to the building plan to allow for a bubble in the winter that will include some seating areas.

    The disadvantages are that it's on the edge of campus, little to no ability to expand (perhaps a bit on the other side and if they do it right a second tier one day), and being on the river likely it'll be cooler in the evenings than they want (I'm thinking about Shouldice after about 8 o'clock with that cool air off the river) or with more bugs than they want.

    I wouldn't even call that a stadium. Just a field with bleachers.

    WOW - thats one tight fit.....

    Beware of falling vehicles.....

    3,500 is just about right for CIS ball....

    might be a tad high for an apathetic sports campus like Ottawa....

    But if they ever fluke into playoffs they'll certainly press the 2,500 to 3,000 mark....

    Good thing no CFL showoffs won't be playing there - if they keep running thru the endzone after TDs they'll end up in the Rideau....:)
