    Now there’s a problem most programs will never face. Anybody have an image of the seven lined up on there? I tried to export the one from NDSU Football Twitter but it won’t let me since I am not a Twitter user. I’d like to send that photo to some of my Gopher friends down here in the cities so they can see what one of those things looks like.

    I hope the ones under the Natty rack weren’t damaged, but kinda looks like they were.

    That said, this will be kinda funny if it hits twitter.

    From what I can see in the first picture, I believe they just took the acrylic tops off the bottom bases and put them on the table.

    We need some flying buttresses, stat!

    Also looks like the trophy case has run out of room. Can we put the trophies on something like a baggage-claim conveyor belt and have them rotate through whatever space is in the back of the case?

    This is what happens when you remove the corner supports. What more proof do you want?

    As I look at it I think the problem was all with the arrangement. Should have had one trophy, say 2014, right in the middle facing directly at the viewer. Then to the left of that years 11, 12 and 13 angled with left edge forward and facing 30 degrees or so angled toward viewer. Then the 15, 17 and 18 trophies mirroring that on the other side.

    This arrangement was likely set up by some ... K, not going there. Somebody who had been celebrating the victory I guess.

    But, how heavy are those things? Damn! I like Tony’s idea. Perhaps better yet, a robot who would take a verbal command to retrieve and present for viewing the desired year’s trophy. Gotta think about the future. I mean there is not unlimited shelf space right?
