    I wish they would of put a tunnel under 27th when they had it tore up for the steam pipes like they have on hudson. Especially when they expect to start taking away parking to the west.

      2. The idea of Missouri State moving to CUSA is double-over laughing hilarious. You can't win in FCS football, so definitely move to a FBS league with exploding expenses and dwindling media rights opportunities. Think about all those fun games on...checks notes...Stadium! Plus, you'll get to play in a much worse basketball league. Imagine how excited you'll be for those big showdowns with Middle Tennessee State. And you'll get to lose to also completely irrelevant Western Kentucky again. You've finally made it, little bears!
      FWIW, rumor has it Missouri St has taken their name out of the running to move to the C-USA.
      To avoid confusion - my username is baseball (Cy Young award) related, NOT for the Cyclones.

        Marshall is jumping to the Sun Belt, WKU has to be hoping for the MAC. That conference is screwed.

            I did see that after I posted. It looks like CUSA is going to be the big loser in all this realignment.

              It wouldnt only be for people crossing the road, but it would disrupt the traffic flow in and out waiting for people to cross.

                This one snuck by me....

                Illinois State just completed an $8M renovation of Redbird Arena.

                New lighting, new audio, new hanging board, replaced all of the seating in the lower level and added suites all the way around on the concourse level.

                  I remember Muller tweeting out picture updates when they took the old ones out and brought the new ones in last year. The gap widens...

                    Couldn't happen here.

                    Who cares what upgrades are put into the building.

                    Just paint lines on the cement under the floor rather than replace it. Take the sound system out. Go back to an old-style flip scoreboard and sell the system we have now.

                    None of that stuff matters in college athletics. It's just "throwing money away"
