    Memorial Stadium of Indiana University is nicknamed The Rock and is home to the Indiana University's NCAA football team the Hoosiers. The student section is commonly referred to as The Quarry. One of the exciting traditions for Hoosier fans on game days is The Walk- two hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff, fans can gather to show their support for the team as they make their pregame walk to the stadium in preparation for an IU victory. The Marching Hundred and the cheerleaders will lead the fans in singing "Indiana, Our Indiana" and "Indiana Fight!

    History

    The stadium opened in 1960 with initial construction costs of $4,563,000. Initial seating capacity was 48,344 but with renovations and expansions the stadium can now seat 52,929. Although the stadium opened with a natural grass playing surface and switched to Astroturf, the stadium now uses the very popular FieldTurf playing surface. It replaced the original Memorial Stadium, built in 1925, a 20,000-seat stadium located on 10th Street where the arboretum now stands. On June 1, 2003, a $3.5 million renovation of the Memorial Stadium press box was completed, which also added 300 indoor club seats and 9 suites. In the summer of 2003, the Hoosier locker room in Memorial Stadium underwent a $250,000 renovation. The renovation was funded in large part by former Hoosier quarterback Trent Green his wife Julie and philanthropist Ted Derheimer. In 2005, head football coach Terry Hoeppner had a southern Indiana limestone boulder nicknamed "The Rock" installed in the north end zone as a new campus tradition. This limestone boulder was found prior to Hoeppner's first season at IU in the practice field. It was put on a granite slab and moved to the stadium. The Hoosiers and coach Hoeppner walked out and touched the Rock before every home game during Hoeppner's time as head coach. Hoeppner died of brain cancer on June 19, 2007, and The Rock now serves as motivation for the team as well as a tribute to Hoeppner.
