    Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    Andy Fales suggested today that Iowa State may not be doing major renovations to Jack Trice because the University may have future hopes of building a new stadium in the next quarter century. Thought it was crazy at first, but the State of Minnesota did fund the new TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota, but I don't think the Hawkeye Board of Regents would allow that at Iowa State. If this were to happen, where would people want a new one? Is Jack Trice good enough? What changes (other than a South Endzone) need to be done to improve Jack Trice Stadium?

    That would be cool, but I wouldn't count on it.

    I would guess that there is zero chance of ISU building a new football stadium in the next 25 years. Doesn't Andy realize that there have been major renovations done the last two years. The reason there hasn't been more is pretty simple, we just don't have the money.

    I really don't see it happening, nor do I see a need for it that couldn't be met by adding on to the Jack

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    Future hopes and realities are pretty far apart, imo. Unless their hopes include some confirmations from the state. IMO, they should just work improvements into the stadium as it is. There's a lot of room for improvement left.

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    25 years is a long time, so it's hard to say whether it would actually happen. Let's just say I have serious doubts that it would. I think there are plenty of things they could do to the current stadium to improve it. Give it time and money, and I think they will happen.

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    This stadium was opened in 1976 (I think...) it's not like it's real old... I would bet on us just getting it bowled in and rennovated... it'll be damn nice then. Not that I don't love it already.

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    My take is that the concourses need to be enclosed on three sides (with South Endzone seating top to bottom) and something needs to be done to remove the fact that Jack Trice is a windtunnel. Jack Trice Stadium also needs something Unique that defines itself as Jack Trice Stadium and Iowa State.

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    Andy doesn't know what he's talking about - he said that the initial "design" of JTS wasn't the best becasue it makes it hard to add on.
    Please, someone sent him a photo of West Virginia's stadium in 2009, after all their additions - it was originally built almost exactly like ours...

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    Pretty dumb statement by Fales. The stadium is barely 30 years old and has shown to be in fine shape. The renovations have updated it and really after a bowling in and some modernization of the audio/video we would have a very good stadium.

    Kinnick has stood for 80 odd years so I see no reason not to keep improving JTS.

    Plus the only reasonable spots to build it are in the parking lot north of the stadium or on the intramural fields to the east. Either way both would have huge impacts on tailgating and gamedays for at least a few years.

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    That is about the dumbest thing Andy has said in, oh about a day probably. First off, $12 million in the last 2 years isn't major renovations?

    Second, where does this genius think a future site for a new football stadium would be? And to go along with that, what happens to the current JTS location? Just raze it? Awful lot of waste there.

    Third, has he any clue that perhaps there are still plans to add on to the south endzone and it just might be taking a little longer due to current economic conditions?

    What a fool. Everytime he speaks, I'm dumber for having heard him.

    The biggest mistake made at Iowa State was not rebuilding where Clyde Williams field was but that is a different topic . . .

    Re: Replacing Jack Trice Stadium?

    I hope they do something with the press box soon. I feel it would be a more importatnt addition than bowling in the south endzone.
