For the facilities that have a barber station, do those schools pay to have a stylist there all the time? Or is a stylist only there during practice and game days? Or is it just for show and the players have to cut their own hair?

After looking through all of these and thinking about what JP proposed this week with the multi-use development of the ISC, I am really liking how JP is setting up ISU for the future. With attendance continuing to decline across the country, i see athletic departments turning their focus more and more to the "fan experience" to keep butts in the seats.

Its increasingly difficult to compete with the at home experience. The OU's, TX, tOSU, Bama, LSU, etc of the world will continue to put people in their stadiums but the middle of the pack programs need to create a true destination that people are willing to spend their time and money on. after all, at some point, you get diminishing returns for student athletes on some of these athletic facilities as its like picking between a 6 star and 7 star hotel... both are a great stay.

I see the proposed new area as awesome. Don't have a ticket for the game here's a bar or restaurant you can watch it in after tailgating with friends or family. granted that would be limited times during the year so who ever decides to set up shop there would need other draws for a crowd on non game days.

Nebraska supposedly going to announce a $150 million facility project tomorrow:

"Nebraska, according to multiple sources, is expected to announce plans Friday to build a big, new football complex for its coaching and administrative offices, locker room, weight room and training table, complete with all the frills and fancy stuff required in this era of autonomy and superpower separation.

The price tag: Around $150 million, with the project to include relocation of the outdoor track northeast of Memorial Stadium, space to be occupied by the new building."
