When? How much? Why the big delay? I've been patiently waiting. Your thoughts?
Why does Wrigley need expanded??
Jack Trice Stadium.
GoShow in 3...2....1..
I meant Jack Trice Stadium. Sorry.
Well why in the hell put a pic of Wrigley field in your post?
Easy call JP and donate 30 mil, upgrade done.
Although this topic has literally been beat to death, it is interesting to see JP direct 25 million to other areas besides the south endzone. Shows where our priorities are I guess.
You're right! Why has this NEVER been discussed before?!
It's been discussed before, but noone seemingly wants to do anything about it.
Maybe you should do something about that.
Its been known for awhile that functional things like the new football facility would come before things like the south endzone.
Id say with the videoboard in progress and the football training facility about to begin work, the south endzone is the next major project. Whether that is one or 5 (or more) years away depends on a lot of factors including revenue from future tv coming into the program (especially when the tier 1 deal renegotiates) and willingness of potential donors.
I imagine many people would contribute (many on here have stated as much) if there was a drive by the athletic apartment to get this done (specific fundraiser etc...).
I haven't read all 2,000 of the previous posts on this subject. ISU will be receiving more money from the new TV agreement and maybe this will move things foreward. The other problem is that the stadium is not sold out today, so we may need to reduce the ticket prices in order to fill a larger stadium. The revenue/payback with the lower prices would be weaker but there would be some intangibles - larger fan base, better atmosphere, more prestige.
Its worth noting (as has been in prior threads.. so some here have heard this before) that bowling in, especially the lower level, isnt as much about expansion of seating capacity as it is about converting crappy grass seats (that a lot want nothing to do with when the grass gets cold and wet) into actual seats.
i embrace your idea to lower ticket prices to improve attendance. more fans in the stadium is always a cash flow positive situation. if not immediately, eventually.
See, the thing is I'm sitting here with money dripping out my ****. I'm just waiting for an excuse to donate to.
If it wasn't for the ISU end zone, I'd be handing fistfulls of cash over to complete strangers.
All I'm saying is they shouldn't bring it up and eventually not do anything. If they're going to expand, expand. Don't just talk and stop.
It is a matter of a national recession and not having funding. Not talk and stop.
