    Would have loved to see the Cyclones play at Utah next year but ...

    ... hopefully the return trip will happen sometime down the road.

    Are you making the trip to Ames?


    I'm on twitter @mookjnsn ... me, not her.

    Got to admit, that is a sweet shot of the stadium with the background of the city and especially the mountains in the sunset.

    And just for those of you who hate JT and are going to come on here saying how nice there stadium looks and they aren't in a BCS school, etc... The Utes stadium got some nice money and renovations back in '02 for being a part of the winter olympics, so it isn't just the college and the athletics program that built the stadium that it is today.

    Utah has a nice looking stadium. What's the capacity?

    Wow, that Olympic $$$ did you well. Looks a lot better than it did when I was out there in 1997.

    From the latest info I could find from the University, the Utes stadium has a capacity of 45,017... The record capacity is 46,768 in 2003 vs Cal.

    ...so our 55,000 seat stadium holds more?

    Yes, 55,000 is more than 45,017.

    Anybody familiar with JTS can look at the Utah stadium and easily establish that JTS can fit more people.


    Utah has a nice stadium, no doubt.

    I was at the Ute stadium this summer. It looks great, but officials there told me they have to add on to meet the requirements of the Pac 10. It basically a lower deck stadium in a bowl shape. We have a big upper deck they don't have. Still, very attractive stadium, and will take shape with the addition. The officials there are concerned about finding the money for the addition.

    I always enjoy going out to "SL,UT".

    The people are very nice, the city is really clean. It would have been a great experience for all the Cyclone Fans heading out there.

    Except our stadium doesn't really hold 55,000. You can get 55,000 people inside the gates of the stadium, but a lot of them wouldn't be able to see the game.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    They have to add on for the Pac 10? No way that should be true. That stadium crushes Washington State's in every way:

    37,600 capacity
