    Pros and Cons to your stadium

    http://www.espn.com/blog/playbook/fa...unique-stadium

    "The Kibbie Dome remains a link to Idaho's football past and its cloudy future."

    The Kibbie Dome has its advantages. It holds about 16,500 for a small college town population. The weather in late fall on the Palouse can be miserable. The weather is similar to Seattle, but colder. To have a covered stadium allows for a comfortable game, by both teams, the week before Thanksgiving. It is also used as a multi-function facility for indoor track and field. The updates to our conditioning facilities have been excellent.

    However, fall on the Palouse is amazing (68-72 degrees). Having a covered stadium is a mess. No one wants to be inside for the game. The tailgating is too good.

    If only we could have something similar to Safeco Field where the roof can slide off for the sunny days and move back into position for everything in November.


    Please your pictures of your facilities.

    We could use 5k more seats. Other than that nothing I can think of.
    Opportunity is unattainable for most people because it is disguised as hard work!!

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Lehigh (Goodman Stadium)
    Pros: excellent setting, large parking area, good tailgating
    Cons: far from main campus, seats too far from field, no lights, no video board

    Lafayette (Fisher Stadium)
    Pros: good setting, located in nice neighborhood, seats close to the field
    Cons: lack of parking, poor cellular reception, limited visitor's side seating, setting sun issue for evening games

    Penn (Franklin Field)
    Pros: historic venue, good setting, good viewing angles from upper deck, good public transit access
    Cons: lack of parking, lack of modern amenities, lack of restrooms, long walk up many steps to upper deck

    Villanova (Villanova Stadium)
    Pros: convenient access from major road (US 30), good public transit access
    Cons: lack of modern amenities, lack of restrooms, poor viewing angles, feels/looks like a high school stadium

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Pros: Home side, new turf, video board. Student section (only full for first two games or late playoff games) being right on the endzone, Tailgates, beer garden.

    Cons: Track, Away side is further away with walkway between track and stands. Stands are ugly and not even across the field. Also call me crazy but I really wish they'd put the arborvitaes back behind the student section

    That is one of the nicer beer gardens I have seen and I do have to admit, I admire the walk to the home side as well as the UNH arch you have to walk under to get there.

    Compared to what you had before the upgrade, you have no cons. It's all good, well maybe the track being the only negative, besides that beautiful facility.

    You're in the FCS now. If you don't suck you will be playing home games on December 15-20. That indoor stadium is a godsend.
