In the 'I should no longer be surprised by the ways DeLoss Dodds can make money but somehow still am. Surprised.' category, UT will be selling off the field after the scrimmage next week.
Fans can buy a 12-inch by 12-inch square of grass for $20. There will be 57,600 available for purchase, and the sod squares will be distributed starting an hour after the scrimmage concludes. Fans specifically requesting the Longhorn thingy in the center will be tased if they become unruly.
I kid. That's actually cheaper than you can buy grass on South Congress, and it's a great idea for several reasons.
1. I quickly did the math and it adds up to eleventy billion dollars.
2. I'm putting part of the endzone in my bedroom for a more authentic celebration dance.
