    Interim JTS Improvements

    1. Change the Jack Trice Stadium sign under to the press box to match the current font ($20,000)

    2. Ribbon board around the entire upper deck facade ($1.3M)

    What would you do for under $2M?

    1. Demolish Jacobsen.

    2. Create plans for NEZ.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Probably a lot if some of that $2 mil goes to a CF member beer fund. I'd be out there night and day with a shovel to speed up the process.

    Re: Interim JTS Improvements

    OP: I'm pretty sure both of your prices are really, really understated.

    http://www.arkansasrazorbacks.com/Vi...CLID=206647760

    We'd need at least 6 of those and probably in 20 or 25mm instead of the 15mm you can put in a baseball stadium since seats are closer to the boards.

    Ribbon board in JTS along the facade on both sides would probably run about $5M.

    Quite a bit. The issue will be trying to replace the dirt with something. I vote for choir risers and lawn chairs.

    You bring up a good point. Why don't we just start building the SEZ ourselves? I'd like to see JP try to stop us!

    so we could actually read the scores of other games going on at the same time?

    Re: Interim JTS Improvements

    I highly, highly, doubt you could put that much ribbon board up for less than $2 million.

    Scores and ads; seem like a no brainer, financially, to me. Maybe i am low on the estimate.

    Re: Interim JTS Improvements

    Doing a vinyl wrap on the Jack Trice Stadium sign would be peanuts, though. . . .
