    What happens if this weeks weather continues for 3 weeks in a row? Will they get the turf down? What if they don't do we go to Strawberry Field?
    If that happens it will be SF's fault for sure.

    They will get it down, we have lights...they can work at night. We aren't allowed to travel to FCS.

    No one is stirring the pot. They are just reminding the board about your psyche.

    It looks like rain chances are going back down to normal levels for this time of the year over the next two weeks. I think they are in good shape.

    We choose not to travel to FCS. But if we want to we are allowed. There is no written rule against it.

    It was a written conference rule at one time.

    I think I remember Helmut saying laying out the grid was the most important and time consuming part of the turf installation. Based on seeing a roll of turf being laid out at midfield, I'm assuming that part is over and they are starting the carpet installation. I think laying out and seaming the turf actually goes pretty quickly. Helmut?

    The sign is very clear. anyone without authorization can be asked and expected to leave. Sightseers aren't explicitly excluded, but can clearly be asked to leave. A clearer sign 'No Tresspassing, that means you'.

    My neighbors have a good one on their farm gate - "Praying is a good way to get to heaven, trespassing is faster"

    I suspect they will shift to night work soon. It does not rain at night and
    it is not as hot.

    They spelled "unauthorized" wrong. So someone wrote the text, then it's possible that someone had to approve, and finally someone had to actually make the sign and no one caught that.

    There is nothing wrong with this sign. Liability is an issue and always will be when dealing with humans.

    "Unathorized"

    Good lord. Can we please make sure that punchline is taken down before the season starts and even more people see it.

    For once, I agree with Boomer. I was in Lafayette last weekend staying at Hilton Gardeens. Seeing that thing from that angle is disgusting.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I would like for us to wait for the pressbox until we can do it right. Not a fan of the cheap looking boxes like La Tech. Also, if we are tearing down the upper deck then it probably will have to be done at the same time. They are not going to build a new press box just to tear it down a few years later.

    Agreed, but since it will likely be a few more years before this is done, I see no reason why we can't spend a bit of money to at least spruce it up a bit in the meantime.

    Depending on how long it's going to be and the amount of money we are talking about, I wouldn't disagree with this.

    Was this a last minute thing to install new turf? If it was in the making why did they start so late in doing so? They could have had the new turf down three months ago if the plans and money were in place after the 2016 season. I guess the crews doing the work was not available.
