Has the project to replace the grass started? If not why not? Can anyone update us with a current status?

Hey Capp can we put a security camera on the field so we can watch the progress?

Jeff said all you have to do is ask for the information.

I really hate to see the end zones as Navy blue rendered in the article from Jeff.

IMO I’d love either the checkerboard (blue/white or Red/white) or just keep them green with the Block letters spelling out THE CITADEL and BULLDOGS

yup....  I feel this is not the actual design, and more what Jeff H had to use for a representation for his PnC article.  

I also support the Quad endzone, maybe the 2nd Battalion bulldog in each endzone...  then Block C in the center.  If  alumni spent 1.5 Mil on this, i feel we will see a true Citadel Flavor to the turf.

I would think a man who could donate 1.5 mil probably didn't have time to draw up a design or let his grandkids draw one up. He probably turned that over to the athletic department and let them screw it up.

No. But, if he has that kind of money he has people (staff) that will do it for him. Still stick to the fact that if you donate that kind of funds then you get a say.

I agree he has a say but I bet he didn't let Andy Cumbee draw it up, probably got a professional. I wouldn't be surprised if he went with something from his Cadet days.

Another question for Spike.
Due to the Heritage Act you can't change the name of a historic building, however we changed the name of Gen. Hugh P Harris Field to Samson field in Johnson Hagood Stadium. Maybe it had not been Hugh P Harris field long enough to qualify.

We should do like EWU and make the whole field Citadel Blue. Then we can wear all blue uniforms and we'd be invisible.

Just win, baby!

I second that motion, that would be very different and an awesome look, especially with the red and white checkerboard in the EZs.  How about getting creative and come up with something other than a lame block C at midfield also, at least use the state outline with block C logo.

I'd take almost anything instead of navy blue EZ. I like that C on midfield though. Pretty sure I had some concepts with it as well
