    Great Idea

    I remember awhile back about hearing about the South endzone being bowled in. I think after a big win like last week, it would be a great time to break ground and get that project started. When is this expected to start?

    CPR broke ground when he got back from Austin, should be done by Saturday. Buy a ticket and you'll be able to see it.

    Re: Great Idea

    Always wondered, but what is with certain Cyclone fans and wanting to bowl in the endzone? And it's not just "We should bowl in the endzone", but "We should bowl in the endzone in order to boost attendance/improve our win record/win a BCS championship/etc"?

    Is it like an inside joke?

    We should bowl in the endzone because it will be cool.

    Re: Great Idea

    there is no amount of facepalm appropriate for this thread...

    To be fair, I completely agree but this isn't going to happen till we get a donation or sponsorship for it...

    Re: Great Idea

    great idea. i was opposed to bowling in the end zone before the Texas win, but after the win and reading this thread, it makes sense to me now. Let's get this done!

    Re: Great Idea

    I think they need some more kids to pledge their weekly allowances before they can actually break ground.

    You can help!

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    A bowled in south end zone would make it look like a big 12 stadium instead of a mac conference stadium. It would have to help recruiting and attendance as long as we're winning.

    Re: Great Idea

    here's a great idea. lets focus on next week's game and spend our time cheering for the cyclones and actually showing up to football games this year. once the season is done, then you can start the regular off season ******** about what we need to do to the stadium. we cant do anything about it now except show up to the games and prove to pollard that we are dedicated to the cyclones

    FIFY. Not that I don't want to see a bunch of complaining threads again when I'm trying to read about his Mayorship, but I thought we sent the source of most of our complaining during basketball season over to creighton.

    I started, but ran out of wood. Cash donations for me to finish would be appreciated.
