    He wants that WOW factor. It's in the UL is Considering a New Stadium Thread on Ragin Pagin.

    It will be interesting what are the proposed renovations to CF, and the sketches of the plans for It.

    I wonder if a sports bar/restaurant near the football stadium has been thought of. One that would obviously be open during all sporting events (pregame/postgame, but also one that could air all away games. Watching away games in a UL sponsored sports bar at the sports complex would be very cool...it could be opened up for a lot of different reasons, concerts, etc...

    That would be awesome!! We could do it in the renovated Upper Deck.

    I like that idea!

    Put it to you like this. If we are looking for an increase in our athletic budget, this is an easy pathway to doing just that.

    My Interpreting of Maggard's words.....I'd bet the farm that a 44-48k ultra modern soccer styled stadium with expansive shade making canopy overhangs seen in the new soccer stadiums, very modern LED lighting effects throughout, MAXIMUM #of private boxes possible (these contribute YUGELY to pay for all this), attractive commons areas to hang out is the wow factor needed to make it a in-demand non football outdoor facility.

    ........allows a few thousand fans/concert goers to want to tailgate in the stadium, rain or shine in comfort for any event.

    If he wants a wow factor then one of the first things he needs to do is bulldoze the cox building. The new APC was not built in a way to have the cox building in front of it, and you can't see it or get the true beauty of it with the cox in the way. Got to get rid of the eye sore blocking the APC IMO.

    Champion Square, a version of the Campus Swamp with a bridge to the tunnel.

    One of a kind WOW.

    Would be a perfect area to hold our press conference when we accept an invite to the Big 12.

    While the concept is nice, who is gonna run this sports bar/ restaurant? The university? A public institution?

    Lease the space to a private entity. IMHO, the best arrangement would be lower rent to share in the profits.

    As long as the athletic department shares in the profit, it could be either/or.

    Ever since going to this place in Denver, I wanted to find a way to get something similar here.
