The University of Texas at Austin is currently in the throes of giving its beloved football stadium a fresh look, but some people are noting that one aspect of the new design is reminiscent of the female reproductive system.
The university hired Kansas City-based design firm Populous to complete the renovations to Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, and new renderings show what the $175 million south end zone expansion will look like.

Let's be honest — it looks like a vagina.
Whether or not the designers had this in mind when drawing up plans for the massive stadium revamp is unclear, but fans are certainly having a field day making jokes about the soon-to-be “Longhorn patio” on Twitter:

Whether or not the designs will come to fruition remains to be seen.
Populous did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
