I'm sure this has been discussed before -- do they intend to expand the number of activities they use the pavillion for outside of football game days?

With the number of alumni that might attend (or we envision eventually attending) on game-days this does seen that the space allotted for the pavilion is still a bit small. I've been there numerous times in the past and the existing building/structure was packed. Granted it needed to be larger to begin with, but the design provided in the brochure/PDF seems that it will still lack the space needed to accommodate our alumni fan base on game-days.

I would assume that if you were going to have people come out to Denton, the Hub Club in Apogee is right there and it would be more of a wow factor.   Athletics seems really open to people using that space as it shows off what has been built and might get people to buy club level tickets

Now of course if you want to showcase the new outdoor music aspect of the place, then you have it there.

Fair point.  I was thinking back to an alumni association even that I think combined Octoberfest with watching the Ohio game in 2013 held at the pavilion.  I enjoyed that event and thought similar get togethers would be pretty swell without needing the greater resources required to open the Hub Club.

Amazing what $85k will get you these days...

At least they're moving the stage to the new side so you can sit outside on the original patio and not have the band in your ear the entire time.

Are they allowing people to buy bricks for this patio?

The next thing should be to do something on the west side to provide some shade.

      Ninety-eight yards, 57 seconds.
      In one, game-winning drive last October vs. Conference USA rival UT-San Antonio, North Texas quarterback Mason Fine gained a national reputation. The sequence included Fine rolling out and then delivering a bomb through three defenders into the hands of receiver Michael Lawrence. Fine completed the drive when he found wide receiver Rico Bussey up the middle a fraction-of-a-second before a Roadrunners defender made contact. Bussey took Fine's fifth completion of the possession to pay dirt for the win.
      The drive made highlight shows and was aired on telecasts coming out of timeouts around the nation.
      "I never felt we couldn’t do it," Fine said. "Looking back on it, the probability of actually pulling that off is really low. But everyone had confidence: the [offensive] line, the coaches, the receivers, and nobody blinked."
      Fine's assessment of the actual likelihood North Texas could pull off that rally isn't wrong. ESPN.com's Win Probability chart gave the Mean Green a 1.2 percent chance to win when they took the field for that drive. That march down the field there may not be a better quarterback at defying odds than Fine.
      Despite being recognized as 2014 USA Today Oklahoma Player of the Year at Locust Grove High School, Fine garnered interest mostly from Div. II programs, and just one scholarship offer from a Div. I university: Austin Peay -- which, with a 3-43 record in the previous four seasons, was arguably the worst program in the Football Championship Subdivision.
      "I’d be lying if I said it didn’t frustrate me, because that was a dream of mine, to play Div. I football," Fine said. "I’ve been working toward that for the past 10 years, then not seeing the letters come in, not seeing the offers come in."
