Lots of work in progress at Mariucci today. Ice gone, benches and boards being disassembled. Concrete saws ready to go to work.

Are there pictures of this anywhere or were you actually there?

I hope they have some cameras set up so we can see some time lapse videos throughout the process.

Mariucci probably switched out their ice enough it's not a problem. Though I remember hearing about when they up graded the BIG in Blm. The permafrost was fairly deep, it took more then they expected for the ground to thaw.

I recall hearing a lot of people were upset by that, but, they're already going to be cutting it close to getting the work fully done before the start of next season, so, it just wasn't an option to wait until graduation to start.

Dozens of high schools hold graduation ceremonies at Mariucci so I imagine there has been a scramble to find replacement venues.

My sister in law graduated from CLA in the late 80s and graduation was held at William's Arena.  MN was still on the quarter system so graduation was in mid June and it was HOT that day and even worse inside William's.  Once they started calling names we could see where she was seated and it was obvious her stage-walk was at least 30-45 minutes away so of course we went to Stubs to cool down.

She was mad at us, not for leaving but for not sneaking something back for her!

I would assume outside at their football stadiums/fields.

I 110% know and understand this. Just sucks that after 4 plus years and $10,000s that you can't get a college graduation. Yes, there's worse things in life. Just it's a bummer...

There are other venues. My ceremony was at Northrop.  They’ll find a place.

They will get their graduation at another building.  Mariucci is not that special when it comes to graduations it is just a building.

I never said anything about Mariucci being so special. I misread @jupiter reply to @orion question.  I read Jup's reply as the "U"  wasn't going to host any graduations at all.

Assuming you're referring to the Academic All-B1G, students have to have been enrolled for a minimum of 12 months. Thus, freshmen aren't eligible.

Someone on Facebook asked the question if they were cutting it in smaller chunks and selling it to fans.  I like that idea and would pay for a chunk

They've covered the seats but not the banners. Hope they have a broom with a very long handle to knock the dust off the banners. Maybe they will use the occasion to hang new, thinner banners to make room for a few more.

The seats are staying, the floor is going.  Then they'll add new boards and extra seats.  And hopefully they match.  

Here's to hoping they require white backgrounds for the advertising on the new board, as God intended for hockey arenas.
