    So who has info on the Bowling in of South Endzone.

    I know Rhoads mentioned something about it at the recent Grid Iron club outing.

    Who has more specifics?

    This is huge for the program and Athletics Dept. Someone has to know something...

    I would check the other 2 threads about this? Otherwise nothing new has come out.

    5,000? I'll do one better. $4900. Or a suite at Jack Trice next season and access to a private jet to fly up for each game from Oklahoma. And remember, VISA is everywhere you want to be.

    Send a message to Bobcats. He was on these developments LONG before Rhoads said anything.

    Remember, some of these people are offering discounted information.

    Since you get what you pay for, you should probably discount their information. I certainly would.

    Re: So who has info on the Bowling in of South Endzone.

    For the longest time I've been one of those that believes you first need to start winning consistently... and then the demand for seating would then dictate that you need to bowl in the south endzone.

    But I've changed my mind on that. I'm now of the belief that... "If you build it, they will come!".

    In other words, we need better facilities NOW in order to compete for the best recruits. Then when we can get the better recruits, we will start winning more, and we won't have a problem filling the south endzone.

    We already have a big enough disadvantage with recruits not wanting to live in Iowa and the cold winters here. To offset that, we need to have great facilities. The indoor practice facility helped a HUGE amount, but we need more. Our stadium is nowhere near a Big 12 level stadium IMO. Without any of the ends bowled in, it looks like a glorified high school stadium.

    Also.. can anyone tell me if there will be a glare problem next year on the new scoreboard since it will be facing south, right into the sun? I've been wondering about that.

    Bowling in the endzone at this time would be hard to justify with the newest tuition hike.

    It would? Even if the money all came from donors and athletics revenue and not from public funds or tuition?

    Why? Because the donors who are putting up money for this will instead donate to the University general fund for scholarships for every student to keep their tuition down if the stadium project doesn't go forward? The AD will put out bonds for tuition relief if this project doesn't happen?

    They are entirely different pots of money and one has zero effect on the other. It's not like the project will make that tuition hike go from 5% to 10% or not doing it will make it go from 5% to 0%.
