You could reinstall some of them to bring it up to USL demands, and now that UNO has permission to sell alcohol at Baxter Arena, it doesn't take a huge reach to suggest that you could install taps at Caniglia.
You also could build a new east side complex (similar to Morrison) between the field the parking garage for skyboxes.
Problem is paying for it. UNO's financial issues prevent the school from investing in an expansion, but a partnership agreement could probably be worked out. It would be cheaper than a team building their own facility, since UNO already has the field in place, and we all recognize that asking any other government entity to pay for it is not going to be successful.
Partnership with whom? And who gets stuck with the bill? If is the citizens of Omaha, then we need to change the name of the stadium to the "We are Tired of Being Taxed for Crappe" We Don't Need" arena. It doesn't have the ring that the Clink or the Bax have as nick names, but we could shorten this the "Crappe' We Don't Need".
Note the pointless doubled letter and the e at the end of the name as this fits into the city's fixation of frilly spelling of places.
