The combination of talking Darrell Dickey mixed with new facilities brought to mind this classic video:

Great seeing things come to fruition.  This is a reminder that the Dickey era played a key role in getting athletics to where they are today.

@Harry

To improve the cell service in Apogee means asking (and paying) for the four major carriers (at&t, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile) to bring out mobile cell stations. I don't know the costs (10s of thousands?) but that is something that the Athletic Department would have to pay for. The carriers won't bring them out for free since their network is designed for a specific load on a normal day and a game in Apogee six days out of the year isn't worth the infrastructure investments they'd have to make.

In terms of adding WiFi to Apogee, I've seen the question of "Why doesn't Apogee (the company whose name is on the side of the stadium) build out a WiFi network?" Their main focus is resident hall network (which can include WiFi) administration and security. I'm not sure they are the best company to rely on for building out an outdoor WiFi network for something like a football stadium (and possibly the tailgating areas as well?).

It cost 10s of millions to build out the WiFi at at&t stadium and the Ballpark in Arlington. I figure it would cost at least a million for such a network for just Apogee.

Was this filmed with the same camera @BeyondTheGreen uses on for the TV show? #480p

Oh man. I think I watched that video 100 times when it came out.
