Minnesota-Crookston Paints Logo On Wrong Part Of Football Field

Deadspin.com

Whoops! The University of Minnesota-Crookston put their logo in the wrong place before their Homecoming football game.

Many of you will remember the famous Snickers commercial where an NFL groundskeeper is painstakingly painting the end zone for his beloved Kansas City Chiefs. After he stands up to admire his masterpiece, a football player comes over and says, "Looks great--but who are the Chefs?"

A Minnesota college just had their own version of the "Chefs".

The University of Minnesota-Crookston Golden Eagles toil in relative obscurity in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Their football team does not have a rich history to say the least. In fact, they won their homecoming football game over Southwest Minnesota State University this past Friday to break a staggering 39-game conference losing streak.

But their victory wasn't how the Golden Eagles gained national notoriety this week.

Deadspin posted about UMC on Wednesday because there was a slight error in the painting of the midfield logo before the game. Mostly because the logo wasn't at midfield--it was centered over one of the 45 yard lines.

Apparently the university allows volunteers to paint the logo on the field before the Homecoming game. Unfortunately they painted the logo before the yard markers were there, and that resulted in the misplaced letter "M" on the field.
