    You do realize that if the team is as bad as you say, the stadium will look empty with 45-50k? :facepalm:

    Tired of this lame-*** excuse.

    That capacity mentioned 60-65K includes 6K of north hillsides. We already have 46K actual seats, so NO we're not going to have anything close to your numbers with the new SEZ. Our average attendance the last few years has been more than 50K, so stop worrying.

    I didn't ask that question, but sounds like that is yet to come.

    The photos they have scrolling on their homepage suggest they've done work at Kinnick, which is encouraging to me. I think they've done a fantastic job with that stadium in recent years.

    Re: SEZ information

    I heard from some people that Athletics told Recreation Services not to do any improvements/lighting of the softball fields east of Jack Trice (rec services was thinking about doing so to have more outdoor intramurals at night) because Athletics was probably going to purchase that land from them for more parking when the SEZ is finalized. Nothing really known for certain though

    That would make the most sense.
