    Next Big Facility Upgrade

    Now that the South Endzone plans are set in stone; what is the next big facility upgrade at Iowa State?

    Ideas (in no particular order, and not limited to):
    1) Hilton Renovation
    2) New Suite/Press Tower from endzone to endzone
    3) North Endzone
    4) Smaller gym for Wrestling/Volleyball/Hockey/Gymnastics

    The extension of the press box has to be at the top of the list, IMO.

    Dead set opposed to this.

    They took their arena (from the same era) and updated it while maintaining the overall feel and integrity.

    The pressbox is not getting extended (anytime soon). From what I understand, the plan is to renovate the interior.

    Find some way to add suites to Hilton. Best way to pay for Fred's future raises.

    Don't care. Nothing is wrong with Hilton

    Hilton > Chrisler Arena


    Why do we have to mess with everything? This fan-base is the epitome of never-freaking-happy.

    Again, caviar appetite on taco truck budget.

    In fact - I don't see a thing on that list that is any sort of priority. Perhaps a renovation of the pressbox - but in no way, shape or form end-to-end.

    Volleyball owns Hilton now that bball has their own facility. Wrestling has their own recently renovated space in Lied.

    Why does the AD care about hockey?

    As for the NEZ - let's get the SEZ done and see if it gets and stays filled.

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    My vote would be for a wrestling and volleyball facility. Something like an updated version of Nebraska's old Coliseum that they used for volleyball.

    Please tell me you're not serious. I'd back the return of a baseball team that no one cared about before throwing money down the drain at something like that.
