    The ketchup model looks pretty sweet. Now I want to know what it looks like from my seats!

    Count me down as being a fan of Jack Trice. I actually went to a game at Kinnick last season for the first time and wasn't impressed. Sure, it was nice outside but it didn't live up to all the hype that I had heard over the years. I will grant you that the exterior brick and façade is cool looking, but that's about it. The bathrooms are small and the walkways/stairs to go up to your seats are narrow and fairly tight to maneuver through. The seats and rows are packed so close together that I felt like I was almost sitting on top of the person in front of me.

    The actual game atmosphere wasn't any better than what you have at Trice and it only seemed marginally louder due to the end zones being enclosed. The student section was weak and anemic compared to what we have. I also wasn't that impressed with the content on their jumbotrons and the music selection was pretty 'meh' as well. I bought a soda at one of the concession stands and they don't even offer a lid for the cup. How do you not have lids? It wasn't a case of them running out, they plain just didn't have any. So then I had to navigate through the narrow aisles and uneven steps back up to my seat without spilling my lidless drink. Mind you I'm fairly buzzed at this point because that's the only way I can handle this many Hawk fans at once.

    Don't even get me started on the lackluster tailgating, poor parking options and ridiculous traffic just to get back to the interstate so that I can get the hell out of that town. I'll pick JTS any day of the week over that place.

    TL;DR version: Kinnick sucks balls.
    You convinced me. It not as terrific as projected as ticket sales are dragging and a creampuff schedule will be played. Maybe they need to add lids to the cups and toilets and pump up their halftime show.

I'm not sure why that school has to settle in terms of dreams and aspirations or make excuses for everything.
    It is all about recruiting. This school needs to have coaches who are super recruiters. For bball, Fed is a superstar. The football staff is improving.

    Press box on the east side means its looking into the afternoon sun, which is not ideal.

    Good point. I have just always liked the idea of getting the players on the west side to get them out of the sun and wind. This would allow that.

    There is no sun when you play night games in November. And it makes little difference with 11 am kickoffs as well.

    But it does make a difference with late afternoon games in November when the Cyclones are enjoying a little warmth from the sun and the visitors are shivering in the shade.

    Can't remember that far back. Most recent memory is of a November Night Game played in freezing temperatures. Both sides shivering in the shade of night.

    So are there going to be LED ribbons between the upper and lower levels now?

    I just going to ask same question after watching Washington/Cleveland and seeing how much better it looks. Really hoping we do, it would complete the project

    I thought this was something that was already confirmed to be happening?
