Piece of turf in end zone at UM stolen


ANN ARBOR - Michigan's ground game has taken another hit.

University of Michigan police are seeking suspects after someone cut a piece of the block 'M' from the football field at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

UM police said a 6-inch by 4-foot piece of the artificial turf was taken from the stadium sometime last weekend. The stadium is locked on weekends.

Police estimated the damage at about $1,000.

The stadium has been undergoing a $226 million renovation. Construction began the day after last season's final game and is expected to be completed by June.
