    Sounds like it! Maybe someone should run over to the stadium to see if the bulldozers have moved in yet.

    I do think we should take a certain percent and redirect it to facilities. That, combined with some donations, should get the south bowl going.

    Re: South Endzone

    Yes, we need this endzone. One reason why schools are making more money than us is because they are bringing in more ticket revenues. Jamie i think said that we take in about 1 million per a game, and I think thats profit. We need to up that number.

    We need to spend every dollar making ourselves much more relevant in FB. This will happen again sometime soon, and we need to be ready. Pay the assistant coaches if we do well and they get other offers. Pay CPR. Build any new facilities that will help recruiting, etc.

    Re: South Endzone

    Let's fix the steps and railings at Hilton and re-pave the parking lot first. Have you seen the South Entrance at Hilton or the condition of the parking lot lately? That should be Priority #1.

    I bet a lot of employees in the Athletic Department are happy right now.

    I would love to see them do to JTS what they did in West Virginia. Make it seat around 60-65K and make some more luxury boxes etc.

    Absolutely, we have to think big-time for football and basketball as well. I'll bet Jamie already has the plans set up.

    Is everyone sure the rest of the Big XII is staying? Seems a bit premature to be celebrating.

    Conference realignment has shown one thing. WE MUST BE READY!

    From a facilities standpoint, we had no hope of going to the Big Ten. Move forward with facility plans as soon as financially possible.

    Re: South Endzone

    I think the plans have been around since 1997. I sat at a little league baseball game with Bill Fennelly watching his son play (I was a student teacher at the time) and Bill told me that they had plans for filling in the south endzone. I guess it has been on the wishlist for over a decade. That is where my season tickets are and I love it. Sure the game is a little hard to call when it is taking place on the north side but I have caught a field goal or two every season I've sat there.
