The University of Minnesota, Crookston allows its students to paint the football team’s logo on its field during homecoming week. Apparently those students didn’t realize the logo is supposed to be painted at the 50-yard line.
The school is taking the high road on the mishap, however. Shawn Smith, the sports information director at the school, said coach Paul Miller first noticed it Friday during practice and the team had a good laugh about it.
Smith explained that when the students were painting the logo, the yard markers weren’t painted yet.
The team won its homecoming game against Southwest Minnesota State (which apparently is a real school), so all is well in Crookston (which is also apparently a real school).
