Oregon State AD Scott Barnes says Reser Stadium renovation project remains on schedule

Oregon State athletic director Scott Barnes joined me on the radio show this week to talk about the upcoming football season and the Reser Stadium remodel project.

Listen to the full interview here.

Barnes said the pandemic has not affected the $140 million project, which is expected to be completed in 2023 and improve the west side of the stadium.

“The donors who want to participate in this project are still there,” Barnes said. “None of this has changed.”

On out-of-control athletic department spending nationally:

“We have to get our head around this. It’s not sustainable. We have to find a way to manage it and to course-correct in some form or fashion… it’s something that is not sustainable.”

On potentially trying to make-up the canceled football game with Oklahoma State:

The Scott House: A $7 million renovation is now complete on ‘one of Richmond’s supreme examples of Edwardian architecture’ | Great Homes of Richmond

The Scotts, who had previously lived in a nearby townhouse, knew the firm’s principals, William Noland and Henry Baskervill, socially, and they attended St. Paul’s Episcopal Church with Noland.

The Scotts first asked Noland & Baskervill to design a striking Norman Revival-style carriage house.  Then work shifted to the house itself.

The firm produced floorplan and elevation drawings for the house in 1907, but it continued to make design changes and detail drawings up to 1910.  The Scotts moved into the house on Dec. 10, 1910.

Although the house appears to be two stories tall from the street, it actually has three stories – and more than 18,700 square feet of living space.
