    A possible solution would be placing light cans from the outer poles. We have a few lights lighting up the outside of the stadium from them. Why not add some to directing light towards section EE?

Other colleges and professional venues space out their lighting like in our rendering to do fun lighting effects in different situations. We just stuck all our lights on 4 poles just like we had them before to save a couple bucks.

    Yep. You can take the boy out of the country, but you can take the country out of the boy. It's one of the dumbest and most obvious lighting mistakes I've ever seen. And it's a real issue. You can't see a damn thing up there in EE except the field. Good luck trying to read a game program.

    This year the game programs are too small to read even if you had light. Gotta save those pennies on paper and ink!

    The Superdome is like that since they installed LED lights. The field is lit up but the crowd isn't. It's especially dark under overhangs.

    For our NOLA Bowl I sat in the middle level under the upper overhang and didn't notice any darkness. I've never experienced darkness at a game before like I have at JAS this year.

    That was the old lighting system. This one was installed for the 2016 season along with the new scoreboards. That said I sit in the middle area in the superdome that looks dark in the pic but it doesn't seem dark when you're sitting there.

    Our team and staff were mugged on the field last game we played at home.

    I'm ok with the pole lights. I was kinda worried the lights on the press box would be too low and blind the student side (for the first half anyway). Not sure how it would look with poles on one side and on top of press box on the other. jmo
