    Lincoln says Yes to arena

    I'm surprised it passed.

    I can't believe a university like Nebraska who prints money is going to ask taxpayers to help them build a new arena. Do the people of Lincoln realize this is for Basketball not football right?

    I assume this would be used for volleyball as well? If you think about it, probably about 10-15% of yes votes could have been from people remembering the success of the women's basketball and volleyball seasons.

    If they're convinced Lincoln's citizens are willing to pay for it (and apparently they are), why not?

    Wish ISU had that kind of power in Ames - then JP could ask the city for tax increases to renovate Hilton and then focus the rest of the budget on the permanent south side expansion in Jack Trice.

    Re: Lincoln Approves New Haymarket Arena

    Nearly all political and economic influence in the city was behind this project. Most, I think, see it as an economic development for the downtown area which was stagnating. The city has been losing high school championships and has trouble drawing major entertainment. There are no major businesses remaining in the city core. As a convenient coincidence, partnering with UNL certainly brought considerable support. Volleyball will keep its home on campus. UNL foundation invested 200K in the campaign - through creative contract UNL is getting a new facility for next to nothing.

    From what I've heard a big reason they want to do it is to bring in the big time performers. I guess they hardley ever have any shows in the Devaney, so it does literally sits empty when they aren't piling in 5000 fans for basketball games.

    Volleyball doesn't play in Devaney, so they might not be playing here either.

    I'm sure their gum chomping football coach played apart in the voters passing this....probably told them that his team would practice in it, so they are assured a sellout atleast one time a year.
