The University of Notre Dame sold over 1,100 rolls of grass from its football field in South Bend, and many readers thought the buyers were “suckers” for paying over $100 for 2-foot-by-5-foot patches of grass.

Notre Dame announced in April that it was switching to synthetic turf after years of struggling to maintain natural grass. They sold portions of sod from its football field online for $150, and the school managed to sell as many as 1,100 through pre-sales. The remaining rolls of grass were sold for $100 on Wednesday afternoon, May 22, outside Notre Dame stadium.

Here’s what some of our readers had to say about the sale on social media.
