    Hilton Progress

    Anyone have any updates on the progress that's been made on Hilton? Don't think I've heard anything since the press conference with JP, GG, and the vp or whatever guy.

    Looks like from driving by this past week they were finally able to turn the power on in the building, unless that is just temporary lighting they put up inside (but the permanent exterior lights looked to be back on).

    $50 million? Why not put Hilton repairs on hold, start the stadium expansion and play the home BB games in JT until a big donor comes forward with the Hilton renovation dough?

    Now that would be a home court advantage! Not afraid to play at Iowa State now, Texas?

    I think they did a little deal on Hilton on the ESPN broadcast for the volleyball match. Likely same info as the KCCI report.

    Because in the History of ISU. Hilton is the only place we have had great success. Not Jack. Great tailgating success. Just not football or any other sport.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I really doubt that, because the KCCI report is based on the Board of Regents meeting that happened today. The volleyball match piece was a campus connection piece put together by Josh Larson with ISUtv.

    Also the Feds will be picking up 75% of this. So that's nice.
