SIAP: New Field Design 


what does everyone think?

edit. whoa pic came out much larger than expected... sorry!

Here's how the new field will look, a sharper version of the old field that's true to its proud legacy. pic.twitter.com/J3NS3yEcmu

Beats seeing this every timeout or dead ball.

Exactly what I expected and wanted although a shamrock in the darker color green around the "ND" would give it that subtle but extra jazz!

I was hoping for something like that also but this is still an improvement imo.

And just an FYI, those two tiny green blobs on the 35s are shamrocks, per the article description.

Also per the article, it may have always been this way and I just didn't know, but the 9 lines in each endzone (18 total) are at 42 degree angles to align with the schools founding in 1842.

Agreed.  I like the Shamrock idea as well.  This Isnt exactly what I would have done but It Is a nice change and I think It looks good.  You can tell the higher ups are really trying to please both traditionalist and idealist with the moves they are making.   There Is an old saying that you cant make everyone happy.  Which Is true.  But I surely appreciate how It shows that they are trying their best.  ND has to be one of the very few fan bases that has factions within their own fan base.

Re: SIAP: New Field Design 


I for one am extremely happy with this design.  I is exactly what I have been pining for since day one.  I luv the new info regarding the background and reasoning for the stripes in the endzones as well.  Makes me like them even more.  I cannot wait for August 30...

We only have to look at it for a year, after that we will be staring at the jumbotron's above the seating bowl and won't even notice the field.

OK, how about this, leave the "slashes" & impose a smaller sized Notre Dame & Irish or Fighting Irish over the "slashes"???

Don't much care what's in the endzone before the game starts as long as it's predominantly Irish jerseys during the game.

Re: SIAP: New Field Design 


I thought maybe, just maybe they would put small Leprechauns at the 35, I kind of guess they do now want to cause the old money to have heart attacks.


Has anyone (Mr. O'Malley) found out any info on when they play ACC teams at home if they have to place the ACC logo on the 35?

I think you should consider being an Oregon fan instead.

Re: SIAP: New Field Design 


Why?  Is being outdated a requirement to be an ND fan or Is It just coincidence?  Oregon Is not the only school out there that appeals to a younger generation and believe It or not, ND Is the only team without a decorated end zone.  So you should have said he might consider being a fan of any team except ND.  Its like like he was calling for Gold Glitter end zones with hologram Leprechauns.  All he asked for Is an up to date end zone with the teams name In It.  You know, like every other team In America has.  Its not a big deal to me because the field Is closer to my liking than It was before this.  However, the kids dont get the stripes and It Is boring.  We arent trying to recruit 50-80 year old men to come play for ND or sit on the sidelines having their morning coffee and news paper.  We are trying to recruit top level and elite 17-23 year old kids and young men to come play a sport for us.   Sorry bout the rant.  Just peeves me when one fan tells another to go like another team just because they dont have the similar taste.  It would be like him telling you to go be a Yale or Princeton fan If you care about academics and tradition so much.

Hey 64 don't be so hard to please! LOL Can't we all just get along? I think it looks like a real football field. Look it could look differently and I would probably be ok with it, for I care more about the field's condition and how the players perform on it. Just Win Baby!!!!
