Stachler said he plans to plant his patch of grass in the backyard, adding to his vast array of Notre Dame collectibles at home. He already dug out a 2-foot-by-5-foot section to make room for the stadium grass.
“I think a lot of people want to try to plant it,” Love said. “We also had somebody kicking around the idea of buying 300 pieces and putting it in his own yard.”
She has also heard of people freeze-drying the grass to put in commemorative boxes. She isn’t sure what Notre Dame will do with any unsold sections of grass, but she thinks the rolls will be replanted elsewhere and potentially sold again later.
Love said the proceeds from the sales went to the Notre Dame athletic department.
