    The company I work for I read yesterday they were awarded the project...if I see plans or concepts I will try to post and keep y'all updated.

    sounds like a pretty extravagant project.

    Looks like a good time for JP to announce a big new pressbox expansion. (sort of)

    We have some too Im sure, but ours are waiting to see improvement first it seems. If we have some years like KSU has had, Im sure more folks will step up.

    People have been talking about doing the SEZ for 30 years now and it still hasnt been done. And its half the size of this KSU project. That about says it all.

    K-State has a lot of well off donors/fans and not all of them are in the eastern part of the state.

    The money for the concourse expansions, scoreboard and football only building didn't just appear out of mid air. We have had plenty of donors step up and as soon as a new project is announced, we will have more. Our stadium has gone through plenty of upgrades despite the program apparently not improving over the years.

    That's going to look strange. Currently, the East grandstand is higher than the top of the west press box.

    There are people with the money who won't pull the trigger.

    Iowan frugality, I guess.

    This is what Im saying. There are some folks who want to see success first. They probably dont believe investment in bowling in the end zone leads to wins. They want to see the wins first.

    We? Unless you plan on cutting the check yourself, I suggest you calm down because you have no room to complain.
