HUSKER DO: The OMAHA WORLD-HERALD reports Nebraska's "new state-of-the-art wireless system will extend beyond Memorial Stadium next football season, allowing for connectivity at nearby areas such as the Hawks Center, Husker practice fields, Weir Stadium, the Champions Club and some parking garages and lots." The system installed in NU’s Memorial Stadium will be the “largest collegiate and second-largest Cisco Connected Stadium deployment” next to AT&T Stadium in Arlington (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 6/6).
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: Denver-based KUSA-NBC's Susie Wargin reported Colorado State's new stadium plan “may need to be slowed down.” CSU AD Jack Graham said that setbacks were a "result of design deadlines, not fundraising.” He added that “in spite of what will likely be” a fall ’17 date for completion, he is “still proceeding with no change in fundraising efforts for the project” (9NEWS.com, 6/3).
SHARING IS CARING: In Minneapolis, Joe Christensen noted the new field at Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium has “been installed.” The school's “historic Block ‘M’” will be on the field for every game, but end zone plans are “still undecided.” The Vikings, who will play home games there during construction of their new stadium in '14 and '15, will have their “traditional Norseman logo at midfield for their games, with NFL logos at the 25-yard lines" (STARTRIBUNE.com, 6/4).
