    Why renovate? The thing has barely had anyone in it.

    Everyone gets their own suite, each suite will replay the 2008 national championship game 24/7.

    Can't name conference school that hasn't had a major football stadium project this decade other than Ku.

    Totally rebuild the stadium @40,000; play in Arrowhead for a year. Simple.

    Do away with the stadium completely, play in Arrowhead full-time. Save on maintenance costs, tell recruits they'll play in a pro stadium, fans can drink beer.

    May require changing dominant color of the uniform to match the Arrowhead scheme. Also may require tarps to cover upper deck. Baylor may be able to point them in the right direction.

    Well, they did add support facilities fairly recently:
    The University of Kansas broke ground on the new $31-million Anderson Family Football Complex on October 6, 2006, and it opened in 2008. The building includes offices, academic areas, a weight room, locker rooms, an audio-visual room, meeting rooms, a cardio room, a hydro-therapy room, a nutrition area and a display area. It is also joined by new practice fields to the southeast of the stadium.[4]

    And they also took out the track in 2009... :D

    Just wonder if having the school in Kansas and playing football in Missouri might cause a few issues..........

    I don't think they can just knock down the stadium...pretty sure its a historic landmark and thus that would be prevented...but unsure. They really need to embrace that.

    Take down the extra stands that extended the main bleachers up on both sides.
    Move the field back into the horseshoe.
    Create a new modern press box which design falls along with the historic facade of the stadium.

    Either way, Kansas is putting all money on basketball carrying them to a new conference should the Big 12 cease. However, Football pays the bills, and any conferences interested will note the total lack of football support from the school.

    And yet, they are raking in a really good recruiting class this year somehow. I don't get it? I'd be shocked if those 4 star guys stick with them. Why play in a dump in front of 3,000 people?

    It was set up for Track and field and football. It can be improved a little but it really would need to be tore down. When Jack Trice was built. They did a good job of building it so they could expand it.

    I honestly like the Arrowhead idea.

    I am not sure this place is worth saving.

    They would do well for road fans in Kansas City, too, when they played KSU, ISU, Texas, Oklahoma, or any decent match-up with a non-con P5 school, if they ever play one.

    That stadium just happens to be in Missouri, though.
