Seriously? I guess everyone on this board is a lot younger than I realize.
It's crazy how much this area has changed. Never knew there was a football stadium where State gym is today.
Isn’t old State Gym in that picture? I’m pretty sure State Gym was built before or at the same time as CWF.
State gym is at the north end of the stadium.
Yes, they made it bigger. Those are just basketball courts. They added more courts, a gym and a swimming pool
Yes, I lived in Fulmer House, which was on the 3rd floor of the north wing of Helser. Never understood why it was torn down. Guess, I never got the email about RCA? Saw someone said ISU is no longer on quarter system? when did that change?
A new building entitled the New Classroom Building just opened. Later it was named Pearson Hall.
Is the boxing club and ring still in the basement?
Looks like ISU switched to semesters from quarters in the fall of 1981.
I’d assume so, I’ve never been down there before.
Fun place to watch football. I was taking a photography class and obtained a press pass for two games that allowed me to roam the sidelines of the K-State and OU games. Got some cool photos of Joe Washington on the bench changing into his silver cleats. He ran for 200+ yards that day, despite the tall, wet turf. One tradition back then was to toss oranges on the field following State’s first TD (back then, the Big 8 champ went to the Orange Bowl). I remember K-State players picking them up and tossing them back into the stands. Fun times!
8 X 10 black and white...printed them myself. I’ll dig them out and post sometime.
Imagine for a moment if they had decided to put the new stadium across from the armory. And left the lad south to Beyer Hall for tailgating and parking.
That would be a totally different environment than today. Would be kind of cool, but we wouldn't have the same kind of tailgating.
If we’re doing that, let’s imagine we avoided the low budget Brutalism design, too.
Not bad. It would have really changed the feel of game day. Putting in where the the cross county course and baseball field was wouldn’t have been too bad either.
That design was typical of the times, when you look at the Iowa State Center, everything is formed concrete. Same with the Towers.
Yeah, hence my request to avoid the Brutalism of that era. Unfortunate timing.
