    I think we should demolish Jack Trice

    I think it's time for ISU to demolish Jack Trice. In fact I kind of cringe every time I see someone talking about SEZ. To borrow an expression that should hit home, that's like hitting lipstick on a pig. The current stadium was built in 75 and is much like all the other cookie cutter type stadiums built in that era it lacks any significant architectural character, its just a non descript bowl. Further it doesn't have any significant tradition (outside of its name). It doesn't have much nostalgia due to it's relatively new age, and if we are being honest it doesn't have much tradition in terms of on the field product. Further the Jacobson building really limits what can be done big picture regarding capacity and future upgrades.

    With the current momentum of the program (can you spell sel out?) and the near historic on field results (only one losing regular season in the last four years!) I think it would be a shame to waste the momentum on further renovations to JTS. I would much rather see us use record revenue and program momentum and support and channel that into building a brand new facility. Something totally modern and state of the art, maybe even some laser effects to go with the smoke and sirens. This could totally flip the national image of the program and totally blow away that crumbling Kinnick Field and perhaps permenantly flip the football hierarchy in the state.

    Re: I think we should demolish Jack Trice

    While you aren't wrong (Let's be honest...if we had the money I'm sure we'd all be for a new stadium, but maybe it's just me and my love for new stuff), the reality is this...we'd be better off expanding/renovating Jack Trice as we can afford it rather than build an entire new stadium.

    Just to make sure the moronosity (kind of like monstrosity, but dumber) of this post is captured for perpetuity when this doofus sobers up and tries to delete it, I wanted to get something that perfectly summed up how dumb it is. Thankfully, the one sentence above was good enough.

    Re: I think we should demolish Jack Trice

    Also worth pointing out, right now the only "nostalgia"/"culture" thing we have with Jack Trice at this point (outside of the Heritage of Mr. Trice and his story) would actually be the hillsides and the "kid friendly" atmosphere they bring. In fact, I would be surprised if we ever see all the hillsides disappear. If they do disappear, I would expect some sort of Jr Cyclone area to be implemented.

    Re: I think we should demolish Jack Trice

    You must have written this on a dare.

    We struggle to find the money to bowl in the end zone, and probably don't need to do it.
    There is no way we have the money available to build a new stadium.

    Re: I think we should demolish Jack Trice

    They have put a lot of money into Jack Trice, it's here to stay. In addition a new stadium would cost a lot of money. If the school doesn't have the money to build two decks of endzone seating, do you really think the money is there to build a whole new stadium?

    Regarding other points, renovations of the past and future are going to make Jack Trice Stadium into a better facility as a whole. The SEZ will make the stadium a much better atmosphere, and future renovations such as a new press box will take that a step further. Beyond that I'm sure there is stuff that can be done to take it another notch further, but certain immediate needs take precedence.
