    Expansion of Jack Trice

    1. What is your opinion of Jack Trice Stadium?

    2. Do you think we should expand it to seat more people?

    3. If so, how big?

    Re: Expansion of Jack Trice

    Basically it comes down to this. When we start filling the stadium up every game then we should look at it. Maybe when season tickets hit 45,000, that would be a good time to expand

    Re: Expansion of Jack Trice

    My thought is we would have higher attendance if we had more actual seats. Who wants to pay money to not have a seat on a hillside? We have to lose a decent % of possible sales to people just unwilling to not have a seat. So to say we need to completely sell out every game for years isn't necessarily true IMO.

    I disagree but I get your point.

    Season tickets went up 18% this year. Why? Not because we had won. We went 5-7 last year and most of the tickets were sold before the Iowa game. Casual fans get excited about things that I don't get excited about. Uniforms, stadium, scoreboard. The new sound system and scoreboard had to have helped sales. You bowl in the south endzone and get it to where we can fit 60K in Jack Trice and I bet you see ticket sales increase even more.

    Plus our football stadium will look more legit, which helps with recruits, which means we put a better product on the field, which means we win more games, which means more fans come to the games!! It's a beautiful cycle!

    Re: Expansion of Jack Trice

    Is it more important to "average" 50000 or more important to have 3 games that 65000 tickets are sold? Right now, we don't average 50000 because we turn a lot of ppl away for the uni and Iowa games. And possibly even Texas game.

    The average would obviously go up if we got 50000 during November too

    Since 2005, ISU has averaged more fans per home game than there are actual seats at JTS.

    Lets make a new rule. New members must have 25-30 posts before they create a new thread. Deal?

    JTS only has 42,000 permanent seats. Once you factor in the 4,000 or so that go to the visitors allotment, JTS seats are almost sold out right now.

    It is time to get more permanent seats and start the SEZ.

    Personally...I think its time for a new scoreboard.

    Re: Expansion of Jack Trice

    As others have said, if we could draw that many fans to games when we're not playing Iowa or UNI, then maybe. Until then, I think it's fine the way it is.
