    Ahh, okay - that makes a bit more sense. I walked in there one day and thought "are people really showering in here?" I've seen showers in weird places before, but never in a college stadium's public bathroom. A wider stall for the former would be a more preferable option though, and should probably be placed near the top of the list of must-haves for a new stadium.

    The soap dispensers are legitimately cool though - it's such an odd thing to inject that much school spirit into, but they definitely stand out. I think they are pretty much used throughout campus if I remember correctly, though they could also just be used in the Taylor Center. Either way, those should probably stay - or at least sell them to alumni or something as a fundraiser. That would be interesting.

    • Former defensive coordinator Jake Dickert has been named interim head coach for the Washington State football team after their HC refused to get vaccinated. What a rapid rise for Dickert as he was here just 6 seasons ago and now he’s a head coach at a power five school. I wish the best of luck to him and hope he can keep the job on a permanent basis!

        Love these stories, talk about a rapid rise. Looks like the key to these rises is aligning yourself with a proven winner who gets results. I see Bohl brought him along his stops, that says a lot. Heres to hoping he takes the job on a permanent basis. A tough situation to come into. De Boer is having a nice season out in Fresno.

          Definitely an unusual and tough circumstance to come into but I also hope he does well to keep the job!

            Whether it’s a product of his system, or just the talent already there...his defenses have had quality stats everywhere he’s been (aside from WSU for a year). He clearly can get it done at the coordinator level, we’ll see how he handles the big chair. But this may not be the best position to break into either.

            • The other day my brother asked what happened to the guy who hit Kolstad in 2014. Well, he is back in jail. What still bothers me is that he got what he deserved but Nelson, who kicked him in the head when Kolstad was down, got off with nothing. The last that I heard about Nelson was that he played at East Carolina. I always thought that he was the most at fault.

                Beat me to it. From my understanding it sounded like Shelly was the “mastermind” behind the assault. But he got what he deserved.

                Nelson I believe played in the AAF before the league folded.

                  Kalen is really on the rise these days. Sioux Falls has been mentioned a lot.

                    This one is news to me. Not surprised at all but I still shake my head seeing my former head coach (and a few of my former assistants) names get tossed around for P5 jobs. Pretty cool. Wazzu is more likely than the the few people who tossed his name out for USC on a message board as an option, however unrealistic. I feel like he's just getting something going in Fresno though, especially with last year with COVID being his first that he would continue to grow the Bulldog program first before making a jump anywhere.

                      Agreed, I think a lot of these carousel articles tend to be click bait at times but its still good to have him mentioned. I think he'll stick around Fresno, like you said hes got something going there. Dickert runs the table and wins out, gets along with the AD who knows, could stay on. A ton of variables.

                        I made this stadium design a few years ago, but it seems like it meets the criteria of what a lot of us want. It has a nice berm down to the field on the north side along with a nice video board. And the stadium can be easily expanded for a FCS move if needed. It's close to the field so maybe we could move it back a little, and it still has good sightlines. The press box/suites are built much more modern. It also can have team locker rooms and team offices. Altogether it fits the theme set by modern campus architecture and Taylor Center, with a price tag of around $30 million which is what that free press article was probably the budget by the administration. It would be a real gem for the University to show off.

                        Sorry, I like stadiums.

                          I like it, especially because the visitors side LOOKS like a college stadium instead of an afterthought.

                            That’s my thought, when MSU builds a new stadium. They’re going to go all out and make it the best in the nsic and perhaps all of D2! No shortcuts.

                              Have there been any rumors that the powerful people are discussing a new stadium or that the 2nd largest university in a state of over 5 million human beings are considering D1. Iowa with less than half of the population has 3 D1 schools. 4 with Drake.

                                Unfortunately not. It’s gonna take a tragic death to force it to happen. While teams that are way less good get new shiny stadiums while we settle for bandaids fixing boo boos.
