Until next time.

Heavy rains in Iowa recently caused the Squaw Creek near Ames to flood parts of the campus of Iowa State University. Jack Trice Stadium was nearly surrounded by water but the field did not flood.


Hilton Coliseum, the ISU basketball arena, was not so lucky. This shot shows the nine feet of water inside the arena with the basketball court floating!


The ISU women's volleyball team will play their home games at Ames High School. No dollar figure of damages has been released.

In better news, the pitch at Wembley Stadium was relaid using the Desso system. It's the system used at Mile High Stadium that has fibers 'sewn' into the dirt that gives the roots of the grass something to attach to. We'll see how this hold up. I suspect that the problems at Wembley relate to the alleged lack of air circulation. But what do I know, I'm just a blogger.

Lastly, the AstroTurf at the Florida Citrus Bowl is almost done.

Until next time.

It's Been a While

It's really hard to have a blog when you have a full time job!
'Nuff said.

Boise State is getting their blue turf replaced for free.

Texas Tech got a new practice field.

Eastern Washington has begun installation of their red turf.

EWU,red turf

That building in the background looks like an East German apartment building circa 1967.

I haven't written anything in months and completely missed blogging about the World Cup and their stadiums.
But, I did find this video showing Qatar's proposed stadiums for their 2022 World Cup bid. Enjoy

Until next time. And I promise I won't be gone so long!
