He will announce it during the Kansas game....to 'Sweet Caroline' while we are up 21 to 7.
Looks like according to the Register archives (purchasing old news? Seriously) Pollard did his pitch to continue investigating the architecture of Phase II back in April.

Just doing some rudimentary investigation, I found a nice Holland paver (8"x4"x1.75") for $0.74 at Lowe's. It takes 4.5 units to cover a square foot, for a total of $3.33 per sq. ft. Now, obviously a distributor would get you a much better deal, but let's use those numbers for argument's sake.
How does that compare to the cost of asphalt at roughly the same thickness? Is it outrageously more? I have no idea, so I would appreciate any input.
I remember in Washington state, I think it cost us around $100 for 3 cubic yards of asphalt, but that was at a discounted price because they were paving the street in front of our house.
