At the press conference, Dykstra said:

T. Denny walked into my office and asked: ‘Do you have any projects you want done?

And i said, yes I do!

Dykhouse Stadium will seat 18,000, and will cost $60 million to $65 million.

Next stop for the pans is the Board of Regents, who, along with the State Legislature, must approve the project.

Construction could start as early as next spring and the stadium could be ready for the 2016 season.
