Check und.com for this masterpiece...

I can also report seeing many trays of plants being lifted to the roof of the new Duncan Student Center. Yes, the "greening" of the rooftops is underway!


Somebody needs to tell these people

Just because something was once put in print, it doesn't mean it's deep or profound.


What is with the creepy Harry Potteresque logo?

Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?

This is the explanation from the article:

Throughout the 2017 football season we will be giving you a behind the scenes look at the Campus Crossroads Project on social media - you can follow along with the #NDBiggerThanBrick hashtag. Why #NDBiggerThanBrick? Back in Notre Dame's 1930 Alumnus magazine, it was stated "Notre Dame is bigger than brick and far more than mortar."

I admit I would not like to have my work scrutinized on the internets, but #NDBiggerThanBrick? I hope $0 of the $400,000,000 price tag went toward paying anyone for that.


At least is came from a historic quote.

From an ND publication, but that's not a particularly clever or pleasing quote.

and yet Swarbrick thinks that alumni are the ones that cling too much to tradition? They package, market, and sell "tradition" like no other program. Clearly, Bigger than Brick is a phrase worth preserving. But the Irish Guard, the pre-game Mass, not having shitty uniforms, not having a TV in the stadium and crappy music, and playing on a real surface are superficial things that need modernization.


Interesting. Thanks.

I had assumed it was an Anchorman reference.


You should've seen right through that.

People do not like Kelly. He is not polite. And he is constantly late. But I do wish he'd stick a knife in a toaster.

Can't we get artificial snow instead? Seems more apropos. *

...but I'm kinda on board with this here.

What at all was special, unique, historic, traditional about Notre Dame Stadium 2.0? The first round of renovations was the one that was painful to me. This one, I really don't have an issue with the nearly the same degree.

Much like the fieldturf, I feel that the jumbotron would have come with or without a big renovation, and I actually kinda like the new brick look compared to the bland look the stadium has had the last 20+ years.


So we can grow grass on the roof but not the field? *

but this is a group that has a lot to congratulate themselves about. They've come a long way since someone first had the idea to attach three giant leeches to an iconic structure.

green environmental award for growing grass on the rooftops and no penalty for tearing it out and replacing it with plastic on the playing field.

Maybe we'll get a second award for the 4.7 million physical pixels: Most Audacious, New Tradition after Two Flips of the Switch to Gut What Was a Formerly Iconic College Football Venue.
