Mark this one under “summer daydream.” The fine friends at http://www.hailtopurple.com/ are always one to take deep dives to a level that I can’t touch. Whether it be history, traditions or stadium trivia they are the goods. Then, an LTP reader sent this post along and I couldn’t resist sharing the diversion of fun time it gave me to not only think about, but actually visualize what an on-campus football stadium would look like. GoUPurple took the liberty of actually taking the daydream part out and created an actual graphic overlay of what a football stadium on the site of the current lacrosse stadium site would look like. Can you imagine how amazing that atmosphere would be? It’s like Army’s stadium, but on Lake Michigan. Talk about home field advantage! The student section would be insane, the tailgating would be phenomenal and the television visuals would be a 3-hour infomercial. Oh to dream…I’m fully convinced we need a completely new stadium – I’ve officially done a 180 on this topic. The feasability of this being built on the lake likely would have the environmental police opening up an office in the parking lot. It’s not going to happen. But wow…to dream. Well done HTP!
