Homecoming

So, what's the big deal?

If I may ask this outside the UND boards, why do we play football inside when we have a perfectly good outdoor stadium?
JUST EXTRA POLISH. I DO SOME WORK WITH EXCELL SO I KEEP THE CAPS LOCK ON :-P

Did you ever go to a game at memorial? Just wondering because I don't remember it being perfectly good. I'm all for outdoor football, nothing gets more football like than a cold night at lambeau field.

Besides the horrible PA system (Sorry first thing I notice) the bleachers are in need of some work, seating needs to be expanded, along with parking (Which is an issue at the alerus anyway also). Bathrooms need some work to be brought up to the 21st century.

I would all be for outdoor football, but memorial stadium is way past its prime (which was probobly around 1960 or so)

Haha, don't mind me, I'm just bitter that students have to pay to go to sporting events. :)

Mostly it's just the idea of being outside that gets me--I just don't think of the physical constraints of it all.

We had to pay as High school students also to attend our High school team games, that is unless it was a Pep band night and you were on the pep band list. I guess I thought that was normal. :P

I suppose it was for a "decent" cause... its not like the money was going to some evil corporation.

I like how loud indoor games are.  It really enhances that atmosphere.
