what would possibly cost 85M for Bramlage?  outside of adding suites and expanding concourse i'm not sure what else you do.  put the money in the venzy war chest.  Overall, i like that there's a plan, especially with new indoor facility for football.

Yeah 85 mil for an arena of that size is a lot.

Not really sure how they’re going to spend that much in there.

It's like the architect was like we don't know what this is going to look like so just put roofs and overhangs over everything so we don't have to show any actual thought or design.
Most real life buildings have roofs, man.

This is what they say on the site:

Quote
Bramlage Coliseum
$85,000,000
New Grand Entry on West Side
New Ticket Office at Parking Lot Level
New Sideline Club Area with Tiered Sideline Chairback Seating
Mid-Level Interior Concourse Walkway
Athletic Hall of Fame Space
Administrative Offices
Expanded Permanent Team Store Space
Potential 2nd-Level Connectd Walkway from IBC to Bramlage Coliseum

And yes, they misspelled Connected.

All of the stuff sounds fine to great. The placements of those facilities for the indoor football and outdoor practice field are terrible. They should've at least melded the indoor facility into Vanier from the start but oh well.

yeah. the only better option would be if they could build the new practice facility over and on top of the existing super ugly east side and then have some kind of retractable wall that they could open up for game days only.

That's my bad, I couldn't see that the roofs northeast, north and west of Bram are actual closed-in buildings. I thought they were canopies over the concourse.

Ah yeah.  I see how that could've been confusing if you thought they were basically just additional covered concourses.

Looks like we're just getting rid of the SEZ tron.

What are the plans for Ahearn after this is completed (looks like VB and indoor track are getting new homes)?

I don’t know the inner workings of the Bram, but adding a 360 mid-level concourse sounds complicated and expensive. I’m actually kinda surprised the price tag is only 85mil.

I like the location of the new football practice facility but I’d tie in directly to the east stands. Way more useful to install a building than just a limestone facade to finally cover up our erector set. And you’d lose less precious asphalt. A lot of that east side concourse is wasted space anyway. This project should be first on the list.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

that's true but it still looks weird, and it blocks what i presume will still be a widely used entrance (ugly though it is)

Looks like they didn’t know where to put it so they just stuck it in the middle of the parking lot.
