Re: UND Nickname Change

taken from a bville quote: 89% of the spirit lake tribe members eligible to vote didn't vote either way. 68% of the 11% who cared enough to vote were supportive of the nickname. So, in reality, 7% of the tribes members approved the nickname, no? Let me see if I have this right. About 90% of the tri...

Re: Appalachian State Eager For Another SoCon Football Title

Everything else was secondary. Genl's Johnson and Kirby Smith were still in the field when Mr. Booth se...

Re: Post-Game Thread: App State Turf Replacment/Crown Remova

Saw the field in person last week. The endzones look much better than on the web cam, but those awful yeller rectangles on the sidelines dominate the entire field. I'm betting Coach Moore wishes he had that decision back. The black border gives the field a classy look and had it been continued aroun...

If this is the newest FieldTurf (Duraspine Pro) Yes, they do cut out the area for the logos and conference tags, as well as the lettering in the EZ.

Everything was looking good until they rolled out the sidelines. Sure hope the turf company made a big mistake because I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would approve the use of that hideous yeller. Especially with the nice looking gold used for the goal lines. This is the type of idiocy I'...

The very nature of the home / visitor's side verbiage exudes a high school image of the program. Whenever the new deck was built on the east side we decided to move over there. Someone asked why I would move to the "visitor's side". Told them I didn't realize those seats were being built ...

Re: ASU continues study of possible move to FBS

If you move to FBS you can sink the field a little and replace the track with seats. No big deal. No one watches track anyway. Go put it out the forest somwhere. There's quite a bit of undeveloped land and forest around the stadium and campus... but, flat land... not so much. http://farm5.static.fl...
