It's been a little while since we've heard much from the Martin Stadium remodel, but KXLY's Ian Cull took a tour Wednesday, giving one of the first looks inside the new facility.
The video below shows off the current progress and gives a view of the field from the new press box, but possibly the most important thing to take away is the project remains on time and on budget. With a tight timeline and a fixed budget, that is a very big deal and impressive when you consider the rough weather the crew faced all spring.
As great as everything looks now, it still blows my mind when I see this comparison picture. (H/T @Brett_Gleason)

Why Mike Leach's "Swing Your Sword" is a Great Read
What I knew of Coach Leach at the time was that he loved to throw the ball and had a confidence, bordering on arrogance. His antics, which were known to me largely through clips on Sportscenter, had him on the wrong side of the fence. His persona put me off. Looking back that perception was built on incomplete information, and was completely unfair.
