    Repair the big parking lot between Hilton and Jack Trice. Some areas have been nearly gravel for a few years now.

    I'd love to see that area get an update to make it more of a "front door" to the coliseum. That whole area between the parking lots and the coliseum/Scheman building/CY Stephens could use a re-think.






    I would try to find a big donor to fund this building (and expand the concourse at Hilton), then move the Volleyball and Wrestling teams to Sukup. That would be my first big priority. After that:

    2. JTS pressbox. Make it half as tall, but 3x as long.
    3. Renovate Beyer for the swim teams and expanded Rec space for students.
    4. Some sort of permanent stage/restaurant/beer garden in the JTS lots.
    5. NEZ. Permanent stands the level of the Jacobson balcony.
    6. Indoor tennis courts attached to Lied where the old soccer field was.

    ughh that is horrible news. It stinks, and is the size of maybe half the MAC schools' press boxes

    They did tear some down and repaired the rest (looks nice all lit up at night now), they haven't carried out much else of the plan yet, except for planting over 200 more trees around the periphery of Iowa State Center and Hilton. I'm guessing it will be done in phases as they have money available.

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    The wrestlers just got a redone wrestling room. Is it good enough I don't know
    The volleyball team needs something next. Yes it doesn't generate revenue but they do win and are about the only non revenue sport not to get anything new.
    The Press Box at JTS also needs expanded and redone. Doing that will depend on if they can sell suites.
    With all the improvements the last few years to everything, JP needs to pay down some debt before the next major project.

    As for Baseball, it isn't coming back. No one cared about baseball at ISU until it was taken away. I remember the days of watching games with 50 other people. It was sad.

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    Iowa State is just too far north to compete against the south schools in baseball.

    Might as well be competing vs UCLA and USC in deep ocean sailing.

    Geography just doesn't work out.

    Softball is a title IX thing, obviously.

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    IMO its not even close. Hilton needs an upgrade.
    1. The walkways and stairs need to be fixed. They look unsafe in places.
    2. The concourses should be widened and concession stands improved.
    3. The inside concourses between the baselines should be converted to suites

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    Christy & the volleyball team deserve upgraded facilities. They are arguably our most successful program of the last decade.

    Re: Next Big Facility Upgrade

    Hilton could really use a better handicap parking system. The majority of the handicap people have to park on the southwest side of the drive that runs south of Hilton, and walk through the tunnels to get there. A lot of those people have walkers, canes, wheelchairs, etc. The pavement between the lot and Hilton is uneven and broken up. Like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Hope they look into this.
