    Pictures of JTS...

    Took a few pictures of JTS Friday. I would of got more from the East side, but the football players where coming in from practice and entering that east door.

    Wish I had my camera ready though, I was at the stop light waiting to turn off University to go towards JTS. Crossing the road was a new Chevy truck with atleast 8 football players in full pads riding in the bed of the truck. Funny site to see.

    Sorry I couldn't get any better pics, but atleast it's something for some of you.

    Re: Pictures of JTS...

    I drove by yesterday and as well as the new bball practice facility. Looked like all the fencing was done, minus the East side entrance. And looked like they are still working on the two north entrances as well., but not sure what was left. Cant wait to go up and check it all out.
    The bball facility looked done minus a little sod. I really hope they open that up for a day so donors or whomever can go check it out before the players start using it year round. The color or the Cardinal outside looked much better now that its done, compared to pictures I had seen months ago.

    Re: Pictures of JTS...

    Are those concrete slabs to keep people from watching the game at the gate? Was that a problem that needed to be fixed?

    I think they will serve that purpose as well as be home to a tribute to great players of the past.

    Now if they could only put up walls right behind the parquet so noone goes down there to watch the final 8 minutes of BBall games.

    I guess there needed to be more of a concrete "feel" to the stadium...

    Re: Pictures of JTS...

    I drove by the bball facility today and it was looking almost finished from the exterior. I did notice a long electrical cord hanging out of the wall half way up on the east side of the building. I'm guessing they are waiting to put in some nice signage there that faces South Dakota.

    I think it is primarily for a wall of pride. All the plaques that are currently spread all around the stadium by trees are going to be moved to those walls.

    Didn't know anything about that, but that's a good thing. I just figured it was going to be a monument to our love affair with concrete.

    Re: Pictures of JTS...

    I'm going to miss the old JTS that was cut in the metal above the gates. Any idea what happened to that? I worked for asset recovery when I was a student, maybe they were sent there? (The old scorers tables from Hilton were the checkout tables at the sale, last I knew...)

    Re: Pictures of JTS...

    Anyone have a night shot of the backlit "Iowa State University" that used to adorn the southeast face of JTS? That was one of those things I always meant to get a picture of. Very classy looking. I'm disappointed that it was removed.

    Yeah, I really liked that ******.

    edit: Apparently a word similar to font that is (scr) and (ipt) gets starred out, haha.
