Remodeling the Armory would be more than just an issue of the athletic department getting the money... That's no longer Athletics property
Yes, the critical decision was made in 1971 - when the athletic department gave up control of the building when Hilton opened. Other schools retain their old basketball arenas for other sports, as swarthmore said.
K-State's AD was considering giving up Ahearn Fieldhouse when the new Bramlage Coliseum was built, but kept it. Ahearn was remodeled, and is now simply a tremendous volleyball facility, and CJ has said she is envious of it.
Regardless of what or where - if CJ wants it, I hope we find a way to get it to her. A dedicated facility is certainly a hard wish to grant.
But if she and the team follow up last season with another successful campaign - suitors will come calling like mad. She's said she and Joe are very happy in Ames and expect to be here a long time. I have no doubt they are. Let's just keep her "happy" and not have another top coach like KJ or Cael walk away.
Christy Johnson is in the process of building a volleyball monster here at ISU.
Impossible. You can't build nationally recognized successful programs at Iowa State!
Someone else posted about purchasing season tickets even though he probably won't go to a lot of the matches. That was an inspirational post because I just did the same thing. The only difference is I am fortunate that this year will be the first time I will have an opportunity to go to many of the v-ball matches. I am looking forward to that.
