I’d like to operate the jackhammer for a minute once the process begins. I’ll sign a waiver.

I bet we get an announcement any day now that the track will be gone by kickoff 2018. It surely won't take another 2 years and they will have to work on it during the off-season. I bet they start as soon as this season ends?
I bet you will be very disappointed.


That's what I do. I gripe and I know things.

I love the rhodo idea.
A football field of pain, anguish, love, hate, cursing and screaming, fully surrounded by a ring of beautiful pink/white/purple flowers.

I so want this to happen now.

I like the idea of rocks/boulders with some mountain laurel and rhododendrons surrounding the field. Would have the outer three lanes 6-8 of the track for fans to walk, middle three lanes 3-5 for rocks, boulders and shrubs and remaining two inside track lanes 1-2 for players and equipment.

Gotta say it is hilarious how some of these threads get "off track"- no pun intended, well maybe intended. This one starts off with App purchase of high school property, then it leads to track removal (I think) which leads to color of track. Then the funny picture of I believe Bristol MSW which is of course black asphalt. That of course leads to Winston Salem State who plays inside a race track? Is that about right? Lol
Well the only really important subject is removal of the track. If the track had been removed long ago we would have been able to recruit the players we wanted, won 3 national championships, moved to FBS and won 2 bowl games. But ooh no we had to leave the damn thing there and now look at where we are. :o

Good one.

This could be a fundraiser. $100 donation AND you get to destroy the track.

Purple shouldn't be allowed in KBS unless we're playing ECU, and even then it should be confined to a small section of the stadium, lol.

For what it’s worth NCSU v UVA soccer on now. Playing at State and announcers talked about the “tight” field that happens to be enclosed by a track. Guess it can be done
