So I forgot about this until just now, when I saw that ISU had their lights on for the OU game. Why did Iowa install lights at Kinnick if they still need to bring in outside lights from MUSCO??? Does that make sense to anyone? I hate having the lights at Kinnick all the time, they just look out of place. Anyway, did anyone else notice it? There was one in the south-east corner that they had to bring in, and then the ones on top of the press box were on too (but they're not there during games, I'm not sure if they just fold down or something of if Musco brings them in). Anyway, just wondering if anybody knows why they do it this way.
The lights they installed allow for Iowa to use Kinnick for practice at night now that it's the only outdoor turf field (new indoor facility ate up part of the land the outdoor turf practice field was on) they have. It would cost a great deal more to equip Kinnick with permanent outdoor lighting and given the relative rarity of night games at Kinnick, that's an expense the school doesn't see justifying.
So does this mean that Iowa will always practice in Kinnick now? I thought (purely from my own imagination) that once they finished the practice facility and everything around it (the rec building and the bubble etc) that they'd build another practice field. I guess it makes sense, I just don't like the lights at Kinnick.
