    I have to admit that is really sweet. Maybe a road game to Waco is in my future.

    You may want to see a video of the town of Waco before you make that decision.

    The part the current stadium resides in is crappy. Campus and the new stadium area is near downtown and isn't bad at all. With this thing going up expect a 180 from the old locale.

    Re: New 3d video and website for the new BU stadium

    WOW. That is awesome. Surprised it will only seat 45,000 though.

    JP is going to have to do something with our SEZ pretty soon in order to compete with any of these schools I'm afraid.

    The best athletes are just going to be hard to attract to Ames the way it is, but playing in the 2nd worst stadium in the league doesn't help. I know I'll get ripped for saying that, but it's true. KSU, TCU, and Baylor will now have better stadiums than us. It only leaves KU as worse than Jack Trice I'm afraid.

    Not that we haven't been trying. Our indoor practice facility is sweet. Our new football only facility is going to be sweet, although in a bad location since it should be in the north endzone if we had done it right, but I'll get over that eventually.

    But everyone else is stepping it up now. We need to bowl in that SEZ with all this new money we will be bringing in. And we need it to be two decks too, not just one. I'm not even certain if two decks will bring us out of the 2nd worst stadium in the conference or not, but at least it will look like a Big 12 stadium.

    Go ahead, let the ripfest begin.... I spoke poorly of our beloved Jack Trice Stadium.

    I have been very critical of Baylor in the past but if the stadium looks this good as an "end product" . . . if will be a great venue for football.

    I'm guessing that statue out front is RGIII?

    I agree, recruits are going to flip over the new TCU and Baylor venues. They won't care that our stadium hold 10,000 more fans than both of those places. They will look at them as more "big time" due to the aesthetic.

    Baylor has really stepped up! Anyone know any rich Cyclones?

    Re: New 3d video and website for the new BU stadium

    The only reason why I can see why we are holding off for right now on the SEZ project is because JP is planning something BIG!!!! We have needed a new scoreboard since about 05' and now we have a huge mother ******... He is going to close it in and make it look awesome. Two decks? Maybe... Clemson style with more suites? Maybe, all I know is that it wont look like ****, trying to stay within the confines of a small budget.

    It will be MAGNIFICENT!!!




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    i kind of agree with you.

    why rush it and have something that's half ***ed when you can hold off for a bit and do it right?

    my hope is that there is a lot of suites. we need to pander to the big donors as much as possible and give the people that are on the verge or capable of donating more to say "hey, the AD is doing a lot for big donors here, i want to be a part of that".

    What would be so great having the FOF next to something players use maybe 10 times a year versus having it next to something they can use all the time?
