The Rock Gets a Facelift
Aug. 28, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Fans who flock to Memorial Stadium this year will see a new aspect of the fan experience. This summer, the IU Department of Athletics has outfitted "The Rock" with brand new signage that celebrates Indiana Football's past heroes and traditions.
The west side of the stadium celebrates some of the greatest athletes in IU Football history, as huge banners depict Indiana's Big Ten MVPs, members of the College Football Hall of Fame and First Team All-Americans. IU's MVPs and Hall of Famers adorn the outside of Memorial Stadium facing Dunn Street, while the First Team All-Americans are represented on the inside above the concourse.
Inside the stadium, fans will see a new crimson trim on the walls that surround the playing surface. Logos commemorate IU's nine bowl teams on the base of both the east and west stands. Also among the signage is a memorial symbol of former head coach Terry Hoeppner. On the outside of the east side of the stadium, banners honor "The Rock" and the Old Oaken Bucket.
