    Footballoffice/locker facilities

    I know the architect sketches have not been released yet but does anyone know where they will build next to the indoor facility?South or East? I am thinking that the design of the facility might look like the Jake building design or something that would compliment the structure of the indoor facility. I heard when the Jake was built Gene Smith negotiated with the contractor/s and they ended up cutting quite a bit of corners like not building the walls all the way to the ceiling for the assistant coaches offices etc. What will the new facility hold? Practice locker rooms? new weight room? 40 yard track for sprints? I just want to know if there is any inside info on what has been talked about to the general public.

    Thanks,

    Curtis Gertz

    Re: Footballoffice/locker facilities

    It sounds like they are still working on the plans. Like most of the plans running around, we probably will not hear about them until after basketball season. As far as where the building is going to go, I would think it would have to go south of the Bergstrom. It could also go east in to that parking lot, but I would think the Athletics Department would want to keep that parking for those donors. My bet is that the offices/ football complex is built to the south of the Bergstrom and is attached to it as well. The football field already there may be moved further south as well.

    This is just my guess.

    I hope they raise it up off the ground level so it doesn't flood as easy.

    Whatever the location, you can bet somebody in Ames will ***** about it. The neighbors along Beach will ***** or the city will *****. Write it down.

    At some point the residents of Ames need to realize they have nothing greater than Huxley without ISU

    A building in CR just went up in the new flood zone, that was raised on concrete stilts just high enough to provide parking underneath.

    I dont know that area very well, but couldnt they just move hte field further south? Maybe there is not enough room, maybe there is.

    With the lockier rooms, why couldn't there be two locker rooms? One for parctice gear at the football complex attached to the Bergstrom, and another one for game days. I would assume that a lot of schools do this already.

    Nope. There's no room down there.

    Couldn't they just make the field smaller?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
