    Bohn indidacted there might be some improvements made to Folsom. If you could make one type of improvement what whould you do?

    Personally, I would really like to see them upgrade the sound system. Having 4 1980s style speakers on side of the stadium just doesn't cut it. I would think for about 50k-100k they could install speakers around the stadium that don't sound like you're driving through a McD drive thru.

    The Flatirons Club improvements are long overdue.

    Start with the video boards and sound system. That stuff impacts recruiting in a big way while also improving gameday experience (which will impact attendance over time).

    Balch renovation and Flatirons Club are also big. More because those will impact boosters.

    Permanent indoor facility that can also be used for our winter T&F teams is also a high priority. Every recruit that comes here worried about the weather will want to see that. It also helps us win since we'll have better practices when the weather is bad.

    I also liked what Bohn said about field turf in Folsom. It's less costly after the up-front investment. It also allows for more events to be held in the stadium because we don't have to worry about tearing up the grass. That will help connect better with the community and students while becoming another profit center.

    I sit in enemy territory for most of the games. (Section 2) The one thing that every fan base makes fun of us for is our video boards. They are pretty embarrassing.

    This x 2

    Want to seriously increase revenue, charge $6-8 per beer. We just happen to have naming rights agreements on campus with a local brewery so.... Whats the problem?

    (I realize there are some problems)

    Plus it would keep the older crowd loud and boisterous and improve the amt of ppl who stay in the stadium at halftime. Lots of ppl leave to go regame...

    Purchase the land across the street, tear down that church, and put in a buffalo paddock.

    Start serving beer again. This definitely should be a priority.

    A bad-ass hydraulic riser that opens from the ground, shrouded in smoke! With laser and strobe lights. Ralphie emerges in an octogon shaped cage.

    At the end of her run she disappears using a trap door.

    We should get those big flood lights that shine up into the air that they used to have at used car lots.
