FAN FORUM FIELD OF GOLD I know the decision has already been made to have the color of the new Notre Dame Stadium surface traditional green. It would be nice to incorporate the Notre Dame Gold in the end-zone areas. It would be interesting to poll the fans and see if an alternate color would be preferred for the playing field surface. It's been a long time coming and I'm very pleased to see that the administra- tion is supporting the change. I hope there will be some "Irish" or blocked "ND" as part of the field design. Looking forward to an exciting 2014 season. Greg Fox Laguna Woods, Calif. Mr. Fox, from what we've heard, the monogram ND in the center of the field is a strong likelihood once the renovation project begins May 19. did a survey on what the preference for field designs would be. For the middle of the field, the overwhelm- ing choice was to have the interlocking ND instead of just leaving it bare, as it has been. In the end zones, the preference was to have "Notre Dame" printed in one end zone and "Fighting Irish" in the other, although some have preferred the slanted lines, which have been used since 1979. You raise an interesting point about incor- porating the gold into the end zone. Notre Dame's Frank Eck Stadium for baseball de- buted with FieldTurf May 9, and while the infield area looked like a traditional dirt sur- face, it was actually gold FieldTurf. BE HEARD!

Might that be used in the football stadium's end zones? PHOTO BY JOE RAYMOND
