    Does that mean the coils are going back in?

    My biggest fear is they do some sort of multi-functional turf painting design that requires more field painting and less stitching. PLEASE NO!

    I hope it goes back to maroon end zones. I miss those maroon end zones so much I no longer care if they are a perfect match to the shade of maroon on the seat backs.

    Any knowledge or guesses on what it will look like? I guess I would assume it will be a copy of what is in the new indoor practice facility. Just please go back to stitching and maroon end zones.
    Finally is happening? I may be wrong but the Loons were playing there during the 2018 Gopher season. I'm not entirely sure when you wanted it to be done. December? January? Jesus man.

    This would require us to schedule a home and away with Boise State. That would be awesome if we went White helmet, white pants and Jersey, and white shoes. Lookout GSU...

    That’s not the product at the Bank. That’s a yard product they manufacture.

    Yeah, "finally happening" as in FINALLY getting back to Gopher-only turf. It has been four long seasons without it. To me, that is a long time.

    Curious what happens to all the shredded rubber when the get rid of turf? Can they remove it easily? I coach soccer regularly at the national sports center and they have similar turf. That rubber ends up in everything. Not sure I would want it in my backyard.

    I don't remember the last time I was on the field. Actually it was late last year now that I remember.

    I found rubber bits just two days ago.... only place could have been TCF. I suspect my shoes gather them up like a gopher in his cheeks....

    I'd like some of that, but only if they would throw in an equivalent amount of heating coils.
    Then I could put it on my driveway and not have to shovel.

    You would use sand instead of the rubber.
