Businessman Johnny Allison, an ASU grad, has given the Athletic Department $5 million, its biggest single individual gift, for a press box expansion and "concourse level amenities."

The Centennial Expansion project will include a complete overhaul to the stadium press box, expanding it to 35,741 square feet. The face of the stadium will be redesigned to include 42 loge boxes, 20 suites and 300 club seats in its revenue-generating areas. The suites will average 433 square feet each.

Full details here. It also was announced that the ASU game with Missouri to open the 2015 season will be played in Jonesboro.

Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
