Last week, Wisconsin finished installing new Field Turf in Camp Randall Stadium. And while the new field looks great, the university now has to figure out what to do with the old stuff.
And this is where Wisconsin fans can win in this renovation.
Justin Doherty, the associate athletic director for external affairs at the University of Wisconsin, told Madison.com that the university is still trying to sort out distribution of the old turf, but that it could give it to those who make contributions to the new Student-Athlete Performance Center. Now there's a way to cover the $86.1 million cost of the new facility.
Of course, an auction or just giving it away to interested Wisconsin fans has not been ruled out. In any case. Wisconsin fans will have some sort of opportunity to get new carpeting for their living rooms.
