While many things at Wabash remain the same, there is a very big change happening just now with our football field. For the full story here is a link to continuing coverage of this project   http://blogs.wabash.edu/fyi/2010/08/13/football-field-work-starting-to-show-details/

With all of this construction ongoing, I thought it might be fun to have a peek at the field of 1908.

This is a picture of the Varsity team from the October 1908 Wabash Magazine. The field is a bit rough and it looks like the team has just about worn out what little grass there might have been. Very different from today’s field and a world away from the field of the future which will be well drained, free from threats of too much rain – or too little.
