    ECU Stadium Expansion

    Even East Carolina can bowl in their endzone. Total cost was $20 million ($10 million less than the West concourse renovation for JTS).

    ISU just needs to do the bottom bowl and forget about the second deck. Make it happen JP.

    I agree, we don't need the second deck, one deck enclosing that end with a scoreboard above it will look fine.

    Re: ECU Stadium Expansion

    that is a cool stadium. Jack Trice would look much much better with that end zone seating. Maybe if we go to a bowl this year- with that added revenue- we could see it start next summer??

    Where did the second deck idea even come from anyway? The original drawings done by JP in 2006 were exactly like ECU, one bowl with the big screen on top. Go back to that design and leave the second deck for the future.

    How much did it cost them to demolish existing seats in order to make the bowl fit? I'm guessing $0. That's where ISU's biggest hurdle lies.

    Re: ECU Stadium Expansion

    I'd rather wait a few years and get it done right than rush the project through immediately. Let Pollard do what he does and get the funds together for a new sound system, top of the line video board, and a quality bowled in endozone (whether it's one or two levels).

    packing The Jack for every game without the excuse of "it's harvest season" will go a long way towards getting this done as well.

    Couldn't the current south endzone seats be kept? Why demolish them when you could just incorporate them into the new design. Remove the hillside and wrap the new seats from the current south endzone bleachers to the permanent seats on the East and West side. It can not be that hard.

    Re: ECU Stadium Expansion

    i am assuming our end zone would be made out of concrete- not steel. therefore, more demolition and more $$

    Re: ECU Stadium Expansion

    I think we need a third deck on the east side.

    Take a look at an overhead shot of the stadium. Nearly two full sections on each side are beyond the end line. Compare that to the renderings that were posted on cyclones.com (and can be seen in a few sig pics on this site).

    The curvature has to be altered in order to make new seats fit and not be 20 yards from the field. That means demolishing part of the existing East and West stands.
