With a recent snow storm in Denver and another possible snow storm coming Friday, what will DU do if the natural turf at CIBER Field is not playable?
According to athletic officials, the game would be moved to Diane Wendt Field (used for intramural sports) which has artificial turf. As you can see in the photo above, Wendt Field, adjacent to CIBER Field, is already cleared. It would be a disaster for the players and spectators if this happens and would take away from the Pioneers hard-earned home field seed.
Since DU has a close relationship with the Broncos and the Bowlen family, why not work with the Bronco's field crew's expertise on snow removal from a turf field and use their special snow removal equipment on CIBER Field? The Broncos are on the road Sunday so logistically, DU could be able to borrow both their equipment and expertise.

Is Daniel Amigo going to play against Utah Valley tonight at the Men's Basketball home opener?
LetsGoDU looked in on this morning's men's basketball practice and Daniel Amigo sat out the portion of the practice we viewed. He is not wearing a cast which is a good sign. Our best guess is that they will hold him out this evening and allow his twisted ankle to recover. Utah Valley has one 6'11" player and two 6'9" players. Forward 6'9" Darrious Hamilton appears to be the biggest 'big man' threat for the Wolverines.
