    Jack Trice expansion?

    I heard that at Jack Trice they are renovating the south endzone sometime. Like they are going to add seats from the south edge of both rows of seats, have them connected and then add a deck above it. Are they going to?

    I don't think they're going to expand it since they'll probably be replacing it soon anyways.

    Yeah, I heard the new statdium will have a retractable roof so we can play bowl games in it.

    I can't believe the size of the new video board that's going to be mounted over the field. I hope punters don't hit it.

    And the outdoor bowling alley in the east plaza can convert to a skating rink in the winter so we can use it year round.

    I hear they're putting in a pirate ship above the lower level where they'll be selling beer and rum to anyone wearing cyclone captain's hat.

    Re: Jack Trice expansion?

    I heard that in addition to bowling in the south end zone, there will be additional decks added to the east and west sides, making triple deckers like Kyle field at aTm. The new press box will be visible from Story City.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: Jack Trice expansion?

    The uprights that retract underground when not being used are going to be cool, but I'm actually really psyched for that 34-foot wall they're putting right at the bottom of sections 15 and 16. That'll help fix a TON of problems.

    When they connect the upper deck over the Jake's roof in the north endzone, how many extra seats will that be? I know I read it somewhere, but I forgot.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I also heard that they are putting in a rocket launching pad to one up the flyovers at other stadiums.

    They are going to start selling Beer too, right? And instead of Luxury suites on top of the south bowl, they are putting a Beer garden up there. Similar to the Miller Lite Party Deck at Soldier Field
