    Sukup Basketball Facility

    didn't see it posted:

    Ames Tribune > Ames Tribune > News

    thought this was already paid for, so can't we use the $2M for the endzone?

    The $2M was part of what paid for it.

    We still paid $8,000,000 for the facility. This was part of it. The land was donated, we bought the facility at cost I believe.

    Re: Sukup Basketball Facility

    I one thing I noticed over the weekend...

    Before practice facility-Once practice was over, a few players would stick around and get up extra shots, but for the most part players would scatter.

    With practice facility - Players/staff/recruits all stuck around, shot around, and hungout a couple hours after practice.

    Edit: My mistake. You meant the writer, not the people who donated the money. I can't read no good.

    Sukup would never pay their employees a fair wage but they can give ISU a check. That will go over well in Sheffield Iowa




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Do you have a reason for this statement? Just wondering. I've never heard anything bad about Sukup.

    Re: Sukup Basketball Facility

    Their employee are constantly under paid their complaints are endless.

    I have talked to employees from many factories their is bar far the worst for wages and rules.

    I've noticed there seems to always be cars at the facility, no matter what weird times i drive by it.

    if they are so miserable, why don't they get a job somewhere else? One thing that will never change about the employee/owner relationship is that the employee will always claim to be underpaid.

    Re: Sukup Basketball Facility

    I've met Steve and he seems like a good guy. I used to build Sukup grain bins for several years and it was an excellent product. I was pretty fired up to see him on the field on Saturday.

    As far as not paying his employees enough, working in a factory just doesn't net the kind of pay it used to. Sheffield would be a ghost town without the factory up there.

    I agree with you.

    On a side note I feel I'm underpaid and I bet a majority of the people on this board do too.

    +1.

    Throw in you can buy a house in Sheffield for 1/2 what it costs in most cities and your overall net isn't that bad.
