    Stadium Expansion!

    When? How much? Why the big delay? I've been patiently waiting. Your thoughts?

    Although this topic has literally been beat to death, it is interesting to see JP direct 25 million to other areas besides the south endzone. Shows where our priorities are I guess.

    You're right! Why has this NEVER been discussed before?!

    Re: Stadium Expansion!

    It's been discussed before, but noone seemingly wants to do anything about it.

    Maybe you should do something about that.

    Its been known for awhile that functional things like the new football facility would come before things like the south endzone.

    Id say with the videoboard in progress and the football training facility about to begin work, the south endzone is the next major project. Whether that is one or 5 (or more) years away depends on a lot of factors including revenue from future tv coming into the program (especially when the tier 1 deal renegotiates) and willingness of potential donors.

    I imagine many people would contribute (many on here have stated as much) if there was a drive by the athletic apartment to get this done (specific fundraiser etc...).

    Re: Stadium Expansion!

    I haven't read all 2,000 of the previous posts on this subject. ISU will be receiving more money from the new TV agreement and maybe this will move things foreward. The other problem is that the stadium is not sold out today, so we may need to reduce the ticket prices in order to fill a larger stadium. The revenue/payback with the lower prices would be weaker but there would be some intangibles - larger fan base, better atmosphere, more prestige.
