We’ve seen seemingly everything in the end zone. Words, logos, slashes, checkerboards but what’s in the end zone at Austin Peay University takes the cake.   Yes, that is a sinkhole that is currently residing in the corner of the end zone at Austin Peay. According to Luke Thompson of the Leaf-Chronicle, the sinkhole was originally three feet by five feet and went about five feet deep. But it got bigger.Workers had to help dig a hole 40 feet by 40 feet trying to find any bedrock. “We actually put a line item in the budget for sinkhole remediation,” said Mike Jenkins, superintendent for Nashville-based Bell & Associates Construction. “You never know to what extent you’re going to run into them, but we know that Montgomery County, and Austin Peay State University specifically, is famous for sinkholes.” You know it’s bad when they put an item in the budget for sinkholes. The good news is the repairs can be done for football season. Jenkins said officials met with a geotechnical engineer Monday as construction workers continued to excavate dirt and expand the hole, which was discovered nearly a month ago. It will be filled by several layers of rock, separated by concrete and topped off by 2 feet of subgrade asphalt beneath the track and turf. It looks eerily reminiscent of the Sega Genesis video game Mutant League Football from 1992. A hole in the end zone was one of many hazards players would encounter. Any one else notice the big cut in the field? Austin Peay opens its home season September 13th against Chatanooga. Unless the field gets swallowed up again.   You may also be interested in:Do they play Mutant League Football at Austin Peay?Not shocking: No Arizona Cardinals quarterback named a top-10 QB in the NFLSay What?!
