I did chuckle at Kyle saying on the In The Nest podcast how aesthetically pleasing it's going to make things. I thought, "it's a white dome with a reggie on it".

Remember when ISU got some publicity for the ISU water towers in town? Seems like a similar type of aesthetic.

There's no reason they can't throw some lines down on the track infield and the soccer field. There's plenty of time to get those in shape for next spring. The IPF is for everyone so everyone can give a little.
The football team is conducting all practices on the Hancock turf. The U-High grass field was ruled out. Fortunately, the weather has been mild and frequently overcast. The lone exception would be the kickers and snappers. They actually used the grass practice field more than anyone and they are now utilizing the track infield, so Timmy was part right.

Not much heat acclimatization going on so far. We open against a deeper team this season. 3 weeks to go but I'm happy about the 6 pm kickoff.

If all goes well then today was the last day Redbird Football had to practice outside in cold weather. The IPF should be in place in time for spring practice. It will be a major step forward for our program but there may be some mixed feelings from the graduating players that will never utilize the IPF and the former players that came before them. For many decades now Redbird Football players have been forced to practice in rain, sleet, snow, gale force winds - you name it. I wonder how they will feel about those that come behind them. I can hear the old-timers now. "You kids today are soft and spoiled with your climate-controlled bubbles. In my day we practiced in weather so frigid you couldn't tell if your fingers were cold because you couldn't feel them. Yeah, we practiced in all kinds of weather. And another thing, the Hancock turf isn't flat. It's uphill both ways!"

Actually, going sideline to sideline, it is uphill both ways.
