    Master Plan Article

    This article has stuff about all 3 public universities.
    Big bucks on building | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City

    I think this is the first time that I have read somewhere besides here about wanting to put a upperdeck on the south endzone

    Pollard's department is raising funds to add an upper deck and enclose the south end zone, widen the east concourse with added concessions and restrooms at Jack Trice Stadium. That plan originally cost $35 million.

    Re: Master Plan Article

    So is the BB practice facality on the backburner until JTS is all done?

    I hope not. I think BB practice facilities are in greater need (saying we don't fill JTS yet)

    Re: Master Plan Article

    With the way our attitude has been about our football team recently and especially if we get a good season going, focusing on football first makes a lot of sense.

    I agree, and if our football team can somehow exceed expectations for this season (win more than 6 games and sustain season ticket sales), I really feel like we will have strong support from donors to help fund the JTS projects. Once we have that done, basketball will be the next priority. Football has a much greater income potential, thus football success would have a much greater impact on our entire athletics department.

    Re: Master Plan Article

    Considering bowling in the endzone won't really bring in a whole lot more revenue and from what I understand is pretty much for cosmetic purposes, I really hope they finish the practice facility next which was the original plan.

    Football can generate income for the bball facility but not the other way around.

    Re: Master Plan Article

    It seems like the plan changes monthly. Sounds like JP is finding out how hard it is to fund raise at ISU.

    Re: Master Plan Article

    I have said this before, but it would be a lot easier to raise money for the endzone than the practice facility. Naming rights on national TV

    This is a tough question at ISU since we basically already have the lower bowl done.

    Current "Real Seat" capacity is like 46,500 or close to.
    Best crowds we can get about 57,000 in the stadium.

    My guess would be that the lower bowl would put our "real seat" capacity around 51,000.

    My guess for the entrire endzone done would be around 61,000.
    I'm no expert though.

    Hey look at Indiana. They currently don't fill their stadium or close to it and they don't have any endzone seating currently. They are adding a huge endzone to their stadium so they have a vision.

    And if Iowa loses too many more games...half their stadium will be empty so basically what I am trying to say is if you win the fans come out. We are putting 50-57K in our stadium while sucking.
    I could imagine 61,000 tickets versus Nebraska, Iowa, A&M, Texas, OU wouldn't be a problem if we were actually good.

    I did some interpreting. I figured that's more what you meant


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Master Plan Article

    JP said once bowling in the south end wont allow for many more tickets be be sold than the pre-upgrade but will allow them to sell tickets for more money. There will be seats lost from last year to next with the changes to the west end. The same will happen when the east side is done. You take 2500? grass spots plus the south endzone seats plus seats lost do to udgrades and you are not adding much. The hard seat count will go up but the people in the stadium may not.

    I still would like to see a BB facality so that program doesnt fall behind more in the facality aspect. There is only so long the coaches can sell blueprints to kids, they have to get something built at somepoint.

    The way it sounds it call comes down to a key donor for both. Meaning they will both have a name attached to them worth millions.

    Re: Master Plan Article

    I've been saying for 18months that the primary focus at ISU is shifting from BBall to FBall.

    Not saying we don't want to be successful at both, but FB is much more critical to the bottom line. Need to keep up with the Jone's there 1st and then catch up with BBall.
