Know you being sarcastic but.

There were some different circumstances with that and the endzone enclosure as opposed to the press box. At that time, we were pretty good in football with the success of Lewis followed by Logan. When construction was started on the upper deck we were just 1 year removed from a top 25 finish (our last, by the way) and 5 years removed from a top 10 finish. Attendance and season ticket sales were increasing and we had recently signed deals to bring NCSU and UNC to the stadium - on a fairly regular basis - for the first time ever. When the endzone was enclosed, we were just coming off the Holtz years which brought us more increased ticket sales and more season ticket orders and program interest was as high as ever. We were also coming off our only 2 FCS/1A conference championships in school history - 2 in a row. There was a demonstrated need and we filled it up several times under Ruff. When the tower was started, we were coming off our 3rd losing season (the latter 2 seasons with 3 wins each), we were one of the worst teams in FCS, season ticket sales had dropped significantly and attendance was way down. Not to mention that we were heavily in the red and had an incompetent AD. It's completed and looks great (except the concrete facade looks unfinished) . Since it's completed we have never come remotely close to filling up the stadium and we've had a 4 win season and our 4ths 3 win season in the last 4 years. And, odds are, the stadium will never be filled to capacity - unless Led Zeppelin does a reunion concert there.
