Does anyone know what happened to the halftime shows? We used to have one every game. For the past season or two it seems like we only have about 3 a season. I assume we are saving the money and tacking it on to Campbell's salary?

Also while I'm here, does anyone know what the deal is with the forest we are growing on the west side of Jack Trice? The grass is about 6 feet long on the hills behind the concessions. It looks pretty awful. I imagine the Reimans had that included in the contract when they donated the money for the SEZ?

I assume we are saving the money and tacking it on to Campbell's salary? The extra money is going for busch light money to fired and disgraced ex-Gannett journalism majors.
Also while I'm here, does anyone know what the deal is with the forest we are growing on the west side of Jack Trice? Not yet. The grass is about 6 feet long on the hills behind the concessions. It looks pretty awful. I imagine the Reimans had that included in the contract when they donated the money for the SEZ? I think the grass is being left long for Eric Church's concert the next time we host Gameday.

My wife and I have been wondering about the half time shows also. We always enjoyed them.

Seems like usually the half time shows have been mostly weekend Big 12 games lately or big games like KU and Iowa. Wouldn't be surprised if there is something for tonight with a sold out crowd but I'm guessing it's just not economical to bring someone in for a weeknight halftime show lately, especially for nonconference games when we don't always have a packed house.

I'm guessing the football coaches want that grass and the trees over on the west side of the practice fields to be plenty thick to keep gawkers from watching practice. I know they used to actually have people up on the west sidewalk making sure no one was stopping to watch.

As far as halftime performers, it usually comes down to scheduling.

The grass is a prairie area that they are creating.

As others have said, they don’t typically do half time stuff until conference play starts. I’m sure red panda, the dogs, the guy that balances on stuff and somehow hasn’t killed himself, FMH gymnastics kids, and all the others will be in town at some point

They haven’t been for several years. I think the only show we had last year was Fargo Moorhead.
