The big news from the day was a more detailed timeline for the planned renovations to Commonwealth Stadium that were announced on Jan. 11.

According to Smith, officials reported that the initial planning phase for the project is underway. UK will seek final approval for the football upgrades as well as two other campus-related projects In March. (UK President Eli Capilouto and Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart are encouraging alumni, fans and others to voice their support by contacting their local legislators.)

After that is done, a design team will begin the work that will include, according to (UK executive vice president for finance and administration Eric) Monday , 16-20 private suites, new home team facilities, 2,000 club seats, concession, restroom and security upgrades, a new team store, press facilities and a full-service kitchen.

"This project is focused on two ideals: to increase our competitiveness as well as fan satisfaction," Monday said.

The project will get underway this calendar year and is to be completed in the fall of 2015 or early spring of 2016, according to the report.
