Following the temporary closure of Allen Eagle Stadium, Nelson Forensics released a report on Wednesday saying that the stadium may require demolishing major components. 

The report says the stadium is "well in excess of cracking that is normal and acceptable." Possible causes include "improper concrete placement, improper concrete finishing, improper concrete curing [or] improper structural design of reinforcing steel to control shrinkage cracking"

According to Nelson Forensics, the stadium requires work on the elevated floor joist system, as well as other major construction. As Nelson Forensics will not complete the review until June, the stadium will not be open for graduation.
