The next phase of construction at TCU's Amon G. Carter stadium got underway Monday with a boom.

Since the Horned Frogs ended their football season on Dec. 3, the demolition of the eastern stands has been under way.

Unlike last year's implosion of the western stands, crews this morning used a wrecking ball to take down the upper section of seats which were put up in the 1950's.

Throughout day small groups of TCU alums and neighbors stopped by to see a part of history be torn down.

"I think its always sad to see the past go. But they're building a future history here, they need to do that to compete," said George Ross, TCU neighbor.

The stadium will be completed for the first football game in September 2012.

The cost of the renovation is about $143 million.
