That's really a shame. And what a mess to have to clean up. Hope they get everything straightened out before they need it for games.
10 feet of water. ouch.
So what happened there? River rise? I know there's a creek that runs about a 1/4 mile away, but it's a pretty small creek. If that's the case, their football stadium is underwater as well. They're right next to each other, separated by a parking lot.
There were photos of the football team laying sandbags around its facilities instead of practicing. I don't know if it worked.
Looks like Jack Trice Stadium is ok...the parking lots surrounding the stadium, though? Not so much...
never been there myself, but i always thought Jack Trice seemed pretty decent for a smaller stadium without closed endzones. attractive, symmetrical design.
This is just good strategy. Now when they play, it won't be just their team that looks like they're running in water.
If you look at this picture, the creek that I was referring to is in the very far right of the picture. I had forgotten that there's a slight hill that surrounds the stadium itself. They are lucky they put that in. I suspect they put it in for just this reason. The field itself is sunken below the level of the street. If not for that burm, the stadium would be under about 50 feet of water.
There have been major floods throughout many parts of eastern Iowa this summer. Bad stuff.
yeah that sucks for Ames.
Looks like ISU will have to bring in their subs.
How can you joke about this?? Don't you even care if HF and his family are dead or alive??????
You like it because it looks like something else .... from that aerial shot.
