Ray Brincefield Clearly Not A U2 Fan

October 2, 2009
In regards to the resodding project that will take place following the U2 concert this weekend, Ray Brincefield, Assistant AD of Outdoor Athletic Facilities, had this to say:

“If you happen to be in the path of a tour like this where they go from D.C. to Virginia to North Carolina to Georgia, we just happened to be in the path,” said Ray Brincefield, assistant athletic director for outdoor facilities.

I’m sorry…are we talking about a concert or an F5 tornado?

When your life revolves around ensuring the turf at Carter-Finely, Doak Field and the other outdoor facilities is top-notch, I can understand your apprehension about hosting a large-scale concert, especially given that Brincefield oversaw the crown leveling and resodding project this offseason.

But doesn’t the way Brincefield describes the tour, like a whirling dervish of turfgrass destruction, make it seem like he’s really pissed about having to deal with it? Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t, but State’s coming out ahead on the deal and getting some good exposure nationally for it.

Trust me, Ray, this is a good thing.
