    Stadium Renovations

    What did everybody think of the stadium renovations?

    Did anybody take any pictures to share for those of us who didn't make the game?

    If so, post your pics and show off the new Jack!

    Re: Stadium Renovations

    nice if they would mark the restrooms better. i walked into the side entrance (actually it is the exit now) thinking it was a bathroom and it was - but the women's bathroom. No marking on the door or the wall.

    my wife said she saw 3 other guys do the same thing when she was washing her hands. So at least I was not the only idiot.

    This happened to a few people we know. The signs sort of blend in with everything.

    Re: Stadium Renovations

    I enjoy the "new" renovations.... however, picture this vision fellow Cyclone Fans...

    I had this conversation with other fans and shared it with Pollard last season...

    North end-zone, two 20 or 30 foot brushed steel Cyclones. Something that looks classy and nice...

    When we take the field and score they fire off with smoke ! The current "new renovations" are great by how about a signature "event" or statement to complete or "new" house.

    We have an engineering school we could assign to the task. I have no idea what the cost may be for such a vision... but I do think it would be a unique recruiting tool... something that would be noticed on television and to young clone's of the future.... Boise has there blue field... Texas there "monster" jumbo tron.... Bathrooms are great- don't get me wrong... but I'd love to see a WOW added to our stadium.... don't get me started on "why do we fire a cannon when score? "

    Do you think a kid would chose to come to ISU because of a 20' brushed steel tornado?

    Re: Stadium Renovations

    I always thought it would be neat to fill the North Endzone hill sides with a bell tower, or a building along the stands much like Illinois has. That way, the players would come down between that, and the Jacobsen. Add the towers, and bowl in the South Endzone, and our stadium would be top notch. No more "high school stadium" jokes! (That really annoys me.)

    In a state with 2 major Universities... you'd be surprised what little things can sway a 5 year-old in allegiance... I do believe that. Also wasn't limiting recruiting to "athletes" Recruiting can also be in "recruiting" a new fan base- the whole gameday experience is what I am aiming my post at. Didn't say everyone would agree with my vision.... Just an idea.

    I like the changes. A lot more room. It really opens things up. The patio on the east side with the view is a nice touch.

    They did a good job. Looks great. Now if they can get the food lines to move a bit faster.

    Re: Stadium Renovations

    The Cardinal and Gold back-lights on the underside of the Upper Deck are pretty sweet. The extra room on the concourse helps a lot. I'm very pleased with the renovations. Now lets work on bowling in the South end-zone!

    That's a reall nice touch that I didn't notice until walking out in the end.
