    No. And I expect there will be seating similarly priced in the wedge sections for those wanting cheaper seats. So you will likely pay about the same price for a slightly worse seat.

I get that there is a risk, but this is the time (with current B12 contract) to take a leap of faith and shoot for something better to stay on par with fellow conference-mates and the rest of power-conference schools.
    You realize the pressbox/suites issue is discussed on here only because it's an easy jab for hawkeye fans to make. It takes 3 seconds to see a visual difference and therefore ours is bad, and theirs is good. (because our suites are between the levels!) That has taken a new spin here on CF where some ISU fans are now obsessed with upgrading something where there is no demand.

    If there was demand for more suites we would have more suites because they have the highest ROI and shortest payback of any stadium expansion project. That being said we can't build for demand 5-10 years out. We are cash strapped, and already have debt. To take on more debt way ahead of payback is insane. Your comment frankly makes me hope you don't manage finances/budgeting/capex. It has nothing to do with a so called opposition to having more suites than principal park.

    What we didn't have was a group young professionals area. It will squeeze an extra what 500-$1000/yr out of newer grads and is a great move imho.

    ISU screwed up. We should have found a way to make money off of the computer and atomic bomb. Nothing else kept a bomb for our personal use to get donations, recruits, etc.

    Curious what an expanded press box/suite would look like?

    Looks sick but unfortunately I think we are 10+ years at least until this is even a possibility. I'm just happy that the SEZ is finally a reality. It is amazing how many improvements have been made to JTS the last 10 years because before that hardly anything changed/improved. Now let's put a winning team on the field and we will fill that stadium every game! We almost do already even with cruddy teams!

    Agree that it is years away. But the possibility and potential looks great.

    IF this were to ever happen it would be a huge loss to put it on the west side. Looking at the stadium from the west side makes it look much more big time at current state, think if it were like that on the east side from end to end

    Yes, the money spends the same, but now half of OSU's campus has Pickens' name on it somewhere.

    You should get punched in the face repeatedly for this post.

    Two benefits of adding it to the east side would be the improved facade being visible from University Ave. and the team could also move to the west side (if the cameras went with the press box).
