    West Virginia stadium

    I would love Iowa State to bowl in the endzone similar to what WVU has. I think that JTS and their stadium were built quite similar. Nothing overwhelming, but would really close in JTS.

    *** the end Im referring to is on the right of the TV screen**

    Re: West Virginia stadium

    WVU's stadium was built after JTS. They used the same blueprints, but made a couple of tweaks (like the wall height at field level).

    Nice. Although I don't think I've ever heard ANYONE say the tailgating/parking sucks in Ames, not even our enemies.

    Try eastern Iowa. Just mention that you prefer tailgating in Ames to that of Iowa City......

    Yes, like shadow said, they copied ours, except for things like the slightly higher field wall, and two long concession/RR buildings behind the west and east stands, as opposed to our five smaller ones. They have added both end zone complexes as their program grew. When you compare the two now, it really hits home to me how ugly and out of place the Jacobson building is. We could enclose both ends just like WV did if not for the Jake...

    Re: West Virginia stadium

    That is what I am hoping happens if we ever get a big, big donation. That we expand/remodel the Jacobson Building and make it run from one side to the other. Just like WVU does. We can certainly find a way to make the space useful.

    Re: West Virginia stadium

    Really off topic but...I'm watching the WVU game tonight and I've wondered for a while; what is the point of the long sleeve on one arm and sleeveless on the other?

    Does the Jacobsen Building look like a short paper airplane from above?

    I would like JP to organize a gold rules game just like the one WV has tonight. That just looks freaking awesome.

    He did, it was last Saturday. Gold just isn't predominant on our clothing in my opinion. If you go into the University Book Store, most of the clothing is red or cardinal instead of gold or yellow. That's just my opinion on why more people don't wear it. Plus it didn't help that a lot of Nebby fans were there.
