Hey everyone. This is my first post here. Looking forward to chatting with everyone and reading the back and forth here about facilities.
We as a university have to stop thinking small. Thinking small is whats hurt attendance currently. No one is looking to go out of their way to attend a game against a school they've just heard about for the first time when they see the schedule.
While we aren't filling the stadium now. NOT expanding it will prevent us from ever taking off. As it stands the size of the stadium is a bit embarrassing. We are moving to FBS and have to look like we're ready to play the part. Looking at Liberty alone, they are running circles around us facilities wise (they have plenty other issues). Also, Western Kentucky, MTSU, and Liberty fans will fill up half the stadium alone in its current form.
And to TMacs point. We really are never going to get anyone exciting to schedule us if we don't expand. I didn't push for FBS to play Toledo at home. Give us UCF, give us UNC, give us Navy or Army. And none of those schools will come to visit if we're playing in just a little 15,000 seat repurposed soccer stadium.
The stadium excites the fanbase and facilities excite athletes to commit to KSU. As it stands now, we have got to improve for both.
