I agree with this completely.
I've made fun of the Bowling In The Endzone fetish many Cyclone fans have, but new and improved facilities often sell themselves. Attendance jumped when the Jack was built compared to Clyde Williams. I witnessed the same thing happen when Des Moines rebuilt Sec Taylor Stadium in the 90's.
The plan to build a football facility and use the roof for seating is the best design, and is what sold me on the deal. I love that kind of design.
Put on the Big Boy Pants, boys.
