Possible Football Venues: Engleman Field on Campus has a capacity of 3,000 and no room for expansion. Miller Park is a poor venue for football. No high school stadiium seats more than 8,000. Any football stadium would have to be off campus, probably downtown.
I live in Texas so cut me a break on this, but why couldn't they build a stadium AND parking at the intersection of E Edgewood Ave and N. Maryland Ave? There seems to be a quite large field there. Google maps show that to be University land. To me that would seem a perfect location... if the will is there.
BB att is suprisingly healthy considering all the competition w/ 5 year average of 4481 at U.S. Cellular Arena (12,700 capacity).
I agree that this is a good potential FBS school, but with killzones you have to be prepared for the basketball & baseball attendance to always be a bit stunted.
Football or not, the MVC would be smart to pursue these guys.
