It’s been said several times the notches are permanent for safety reasons. The turf is getting replaced and I’m going to assume that’s it.

I love nachos too!


Iirc I read something recently that we'd be getting (another) new field but no changes to the notches and that's on top of the new scoreboard and upgraded audio system amongst other improvements from FCC.

We were promised notch removal, we should get notch removal. Restore the historic treasure to its rightful look.

That play is the exact reason why it won't be returned. The first time someone gets hurt because of it the university will be liable.

Yeah - now that they're gone, I don't think they will be filled back in. It's one thing if you have a historic stadium with historic lines. It's another if they are removed and then purposely filled back in, creating a danger for players and fans. I could see a player getting tackled headfirst into those brick walls and getting paralyzed. Even with pads covering them, they were really close to the back corner pylons and dangerous. I'm no alarmist and know those guys take and can handle a pounding every day, but I don't see the university or athletic department taking a chance with the walls being that close again.

Great summary of where we are today. Nippert is historic, but its history has been one of frequent revisions in both the field footprint and the structure itself to meet the changing needs of athletics and the larger university community.

The notches do provide a margin of safety for players and the brickwork and facings were carefully matched to the existing field perimeter wall. The expense of restoring those few field level seats (with poor views) would likely require decades just to break even. And the added capacity those create hardly moves the needle in the race to the P5.

What should be done is a modest investment in revising the conceptual plans developed earlier for expansion of capacity. Having those updated and ready to pull off the shelf would send a signal to the ACC/B12 that, if needed, UC is prepared to commit resources to increased (non-premium) seating capacity if required by either conference.
