    Did you know that Memorial Stadium was used as an indoor practice facility from 1985 through 2000 because of an air-tight vacuum dome? It was called “The Bubble.”

    Harold “Red” Grange had an unreal performance on Oct. 18, 1924, the stadium’s official dedication. He ran for 265 yards and scored 4 times…in the first 12 minutes of play.
