    Looks like sheep fencing.... Better than the chain link fence, but I was hoping it would be something more in line with the fencing around Kinnick.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.

    I hope that fencing is temporary.

    I hear they have to have that fencing to keep people from leaving after they realize it is a hawkeye game.

    A friend of mine sent an email to Jamie Pollard asking that very question. He said the cost of having a sound system with speakers all around the stadium instead of just on the scoreboard is on the order of $2M. So, he said they don't have any plans (even with the bowling upgrade) to upgrade the sound system beyond replacing old speakers. Sounds like the crappy JTS sound system is here to stay.

    Screw that. Bring back the early 90's sound system. Sounds like a high school stadium with the echos. I love hearing that on ESPN Classic.

    My personal opinion, and I'll probably get slammed for this, but I would rather see us completely upgrade the sound and video system before bowling in the south end zone, or would like to see us raise another 2+ million before starting construction. The sound system is one of the most important parts of the stadium.

    I agree. If we start having good teams consistently, then the donors will come and their will be more money for things like the sound
