    They removed 3,500 seats in a 2004 renovation and nix'd the standing room only tickets. I ran the numbers on the WV boards and we've hit 61k+ about 7-8 times since we've joined the league. Last week vs Texas it was 62K+ and the largest since pre renovation

    Milan Puskar Stadium has more rows of seats on the sidelines than JTS does. While JTS has 47 lower level rows to MPS 44 lower level rows, MPS has 37 in the balcony vs 30 at JTS.

    I thought it was slightly different. But those added four rows would make a decent difference in capacity between the two in some of the historical attendances.

    What are these grass lots at Jack Trice and why are they never open?

    Also, MPS originally had 9 wide and 2 narrow sections in the upper deck compared to CS(now JTS) having 7 wide and 2 narrow sections. I don't know how many seats per row each section has/had.

    Grass parking lots for parking and tailgating. It has been ridiculously rainy the last two falls so they can't be open or they will get torn up and be unusable for the remainder of the season.

    And it doesn't help much that they also become impassable when we get snow during later games.

    I say we open them up anyway and have a mud bog/tailgate party. It would probably be a good time.

    You had a chance to be a legendary visitor if you would have replaced Minnesota with the U of I

    Minnesota has the history like Pitt tho. Iowa has been largely irrelevant outside of Fry and 5 loss a year Ferentz.

    Now you are just pandering to us.

    Nice work, though.

    Per the OP, MPS opened with a capacity of 50K while CS opened with a capacity of 45K.

    Well, that and the fact that Minnesota were the ones who killed Jack Trice.

    Redeemed with the TOE reference, yes. But thinking anyone in this region cares about minn is laughable. Peoplease in the cities don't even care about the gophers
