UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- A big project kicked off Monday at UI. Work began on a new turf at the outdoor center fields of Memorial Stadium. It will be green with different shades every five yards and will have the Block "I" logo, similar to the design at the State Farm Center. The project should be done by fall.
