    • Here's the entire video as produced yesterday. May be a bit long for some at 38 minutes, but pretty detailed. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CF29Rmblb_I/

      • Recruiting will be a lot easier. Reminds me of the football center.

          That's a fact! Who wouldn't want to run at Hayward and share that locker room? I ran at Ohio State 50+ years ago. We thought it was amazing that we got to take over the football locker room after they moved off-campus. Whirlpools, wow! Now I think about how dingy that place was, though it was cool to walk from locker room into a massive, empty football stadium.

          • Of course Minnesota built a fancy track facility and 2 years later got rid of men's track.

            • Finally got to touch Hayward Field. Soccer fields to the west are open and could get up close and look down into the indoor track area. Cool indeed.

                • Probably shouldn't admit it, but I took a midnight lap on Sunday. It's so stunningly beautiful and while I'm a bit of a homer, I think it might be the most beautiful stadium of any sport in the US. Y'all are going to be blown away when a meet is finally held there. The photos, drone shots, etc don't do it justice.

                    • The old Hayward was definitely one of the top places to watch a meet..

                      But the new one is amazing. Perfect size...track right next to the stands. It is gorgeous.

                      It is the one reason why I think Nike will support track in some way. Uncle Phil is going to want something in that stadium on some long-term basis.

                          • A half mile north of Hayward across Franklin they built a huge 5 story parking garage.
