    I don't get it either. I don't want to stare at a bunch of empty seats, we already get plenty of that right now.

    How many times does it have to said. It doesn't increase capacity.

    Re: Will you please explain....

    i dont think it has anything to do with wanting to increase attendance right now. currently a lower bowl in the south endzone won't add any capacity. it seems that it would make the south side more aesthetically pleasing to recruits and other high end people that may want to donate money. bowling in the lower half right now wouldnt do much other make our stadium more up to par with other big 12 schools. i currently cant think of any other big 12 schools that dont have at least some sort of a horseshoe shape to their stadium. we currently have bleachers in the south end which look tacky and cheap. by adding in permanent seating, our stadium as a whole would look like it belonged with top schools rather than the MAC schools.

    thats my take on why people want it done, i could be wrong but thats what i think

    Empty hillsides don't look as bad as empty bleachers.

    It's not so much what's on top, it's what's underneath. There would be a lot gained for athletic office space, training facilities, etc.

    Because bowling in the south end will not only make the stadium look more big time, it will greatly increase the sound level translating to a greater home field advantage. The open end on the south currently lets a lot of the fan nose escape rather than bounce back onto the field. It needs to be done in a way that the option is still there to bowl in the upper deck as well.

    Maybe more people would go to the game if they could get real seats for cheap instead of sitting on grass.(assuming the seats in the bowled in south endzone would be cheaper than other seats)

    Plus all the other benefits that have been pointed out countless times over and over again.

    Yep. Better viewing angles, better seats, no cold, wet grass. In addition, you move the student section down there and those seats where theyre at can grab a higher amount.

    that would be stupid to move the student section. i might be biased since i am still a student but i dont see how that makes any sense. we are the closest section to where the team goes on and off the field (except when they run out of the tunnel), this gets us close to the players and pumps us up and we make more noise. why would put us on the far end and act like we arent an important part of the crowd. and 2nd, who's gonna start the CYCLONE....POWER chant if they move us to the south side....sure isnt gonna be the adults that would sit there instead.

    Step 1: Keep Rhoads happy
    Step 2: Rhoads wants the conference area/office space
    Step 3: South Endzone

    How can you help? But a damn ticket and be apart of the "team"
