    anybody else see this?

    HBO real sports with gumble to gumble had a special about okie state and boone pickens. pretty neat stuff. talks about all the upgrades and money he is spending for them to win and win now. goes on to talk about michigan spending something like 214 mil for the big house and osu spending over 200 mil on the horseshoe. makes our 19 mil look pretty small.

    Here's the thing - when we're trying to build a program, is gold plated toilets really necessary?

    Is that 214 million total? We are just upgrading now and over all I'm sure overall we have spent more than 19 million.

    Well, the construction cost of the stadium was only $7.6 Million in early '70s dollars, the press box cost $6.2 Million, so I can't imagine it's a whole lot more than that.

    Nope, thats 214 in renovations alone, and according to the link below, that's now up to 226 mil. It also explains what they're going to do with all that money.

    It is, unless it's a #2, the sensor is extremely sensitive, and you lean forward and it flushes while you're sitting there. That's a creepy feeling

    Just man up and flush the dang toilet! That's why they provide you with free anti-bacterial soap, to wash your hands!

    It's not too difficult when you have as many season ticket holders as they do and your stadium holds 100k+ people.
