Just FYI for everyone. The field is already named. Wendell H "Dell" Murphy Jr. Field...for those that don't know.

What is Murphy's connection to App?

We should change the name of the University to Moore University and our mascot be the Jerry's.
What's your beef with Coach Moore?

Couldn't find anything except he donated a crap pot full of money for the naming rights to the field. His father was a big time hog farmer. Perhaps he gives a lot of BBQ to Woodlands for sale in the stadium. ;)

I think the fact of the matter is .. coach Moore was good not great and lead us in to prominence... as one mountaineer put it! But he was not who the stadium should be named after!

But a wining ex-con with money that gave us some money.

I like the idea of a statue outside of the stadium, and something on the inside in kind of a ring of honor type way. Aside from coach, I've always thought we needed to do a better job of recognizing Mountaineer greats in that type of way. I'd like to see what we have upgraded.
A statue of the post michigan celebration with the players raising Coach Moore on their shoulders would be really cool.

That is exactly what I’m talking about!!!
Let’s talk with the AD Dept and get that going. Find out how much it would cost and start raising funds throughout AppNation!!!!

It wasn’t directed towards Jerry, so my beef isn’t with him...

My first thing would be to do a Florida State and have Jerry Moore Field at Kidd-Brewer Stadium, but that's taken. You could always name the new endzone complex after him.

Wasn't Kidd Brewer kind of a shady person to being with? I remember my teachers up at App my freshman year saying something to that extent.

Convicted of bid-rigging in the 1960s. Served 18 months in prison I think.

Owned land that became Crabtree Mall area in Raleigh.

Wikipedia has a short article on him.

Good point. I think we should model it after the Statue of Liberty.
