Colorado State Football Stadium Construction Update
« on: June 19, 2016, 10:26:23 PM »
Obviously, Colorado State wants into the Big 12.  Here's an aerial view of the new on-campus stadium construction.  It's about 2 weeks old.

I'm not here to troll.  I just want K-State fans to know that CSU very much wants to be part of the Big 12 and is making pretty significant investments (academically and athletically).  Good luck in football this season.  We'll be looking forward to you all coming to a BB game in Denver in Dec.

Almost all KSU fans hate our basketball coach, so they won't be there or follow the game at all.  Just FYI.

Congrats...it will look very nice as long as they don't half-ass the finishes like Baylor.  I enjoyed your Stadium Fly-Through.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPat61kj_JQ&list=PLYO3Ts6JoiZBPlHqLsgaCn_PD0hFjVSqj&index=4

How did you guys pay for it?  Asking for a KU friend of mine.

I would like Colorado State to be a part of the B12. and ISU and WVU to not be parts of it.

Also, how many times would you say that you rock out to "Rocky Mountain High" per sporting event?

I’m not a finance guy, so I’m probably not the best to respond but I’ll give it a shot.  The total stadium cost is $220 million.  It is being financed by revenue from the stadium including ticket sales, weddings, and all sorts of other catered events.  In the fly through you can see many of the meeting areas that will be available for these types of events.  The President made the advisory board go through all kinds of financial models to make sure the bonds could be repaid without dipping into the General Fund or increasing tuition.  Private donations for the stadium are in the $40-60 million range currently.

From the FAQ about the stadium, it reads; “The stadium is financed by investors and donors and does not rely on any funding from tuition or state funding. Bond payments will be made from stadium revenues and private donations. Bonds for the new stadium sold in less than 90 minutes on March 19, and certain series of bonds within the package were as much as three times oversubscribed. The total bond package delivered a true interest rate of 3.57 percent.”

Both of my parents were born and raised in KC and I still have a lot of family in the area.  Many of my relatives went to KU or KSU, so it’d be a good rivalry for us. 

Regarding Iowa St:  Our BB coach is former Cyclone HC Larry Eustachy and I think it’d add intrigue if we were in the same conference with them.

Larry Eustachy adds intrigue wherever alcohol is present.

I thought that might raise some eyebrows.  Weddings happen year-round and is one example the advisory board used as being a source of income to help pay for the stadium.  It’s probably more likely that people will rent out a space for a wedding reception though.  And, yes, people do get married at stadiums.  Other obvious events include business meetings, holiday parties, etc.  Basically anything that hotels rent their spaces for are the same types of events CSU will be renting their stadium areas out for.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the B12 is way too wholesome for Ganja Aggy.  We don't need that kind of culture in our untarnished Big 12.  Sure, Baylor and KU have a few issues with women, but that isn't as big of a deal as including a dirty hippy weed smoker like you guys. 

Also, if you are having funding issues, maybe you should have big garage sales/flea markets at the stadium to increase revenue.

Sorry, but I don’t have any idea where this came from.  If there was an incident where a CSU fan threw batteries at a CU player or fan, I’ll be the first to say I’m sorry for the a-hole who did that.  That’s not representative of 99.9% of CSU fans.  Every fan base has some bad apples and CSU is no different.

That's good to hear. Any riots planned in this new stadium like at Mile High in 1999 or has that life phase been outgrown?  :Hook'em:

Is this the same Colorado school we kicked out of the big 12 for sucking ass at football and hosting rape parties as part of football recruiting?

If so, a 30k stadium / wedding reception hall / Realtors convention center wouldn't get you in, in the first place, and certainly won't cure past misconduct of that degree.

I think you see in the link why an on-campus stadium is being built.  As far as Moby Arena goes, it holds 8745.  Yeah, not the biggest, but it holds it's own.  Opposing teams say that it's difficult to play there because the stairs are quite steep which gets the fans closer to the sidelines.  I love watching BB games when it's full.

The CSU vs KSU game will be at the Pepsi Center in Denver (where the Nuggets and Avs play).
