The new Cal football field features the Hayward earthquake fault

Let’s take a closer look.

As reported earlier this year, the California Golden Bears have a new field. It’s so pretty.

One of the defining features of the new Memorial Stadium? It has a fault line! Take a look-see above at the north end zone (on the left side of the screen) and you can see the line make it’s way toward the top.

Let’s take a look-see of what the fault line looks like at eye-level.

On one hand, the fault line isn’t too prominently sticking out, so you really have to look for it to find it. On the other, it’s probably best not to draw that too much attention to an active earthquake fault line that forced the university to enact millions in overdue athletic renovations and have left the athletic department mired in debt. Always compromises to be made in the football life.

On the best hand, this field is no longer called Kabam Field. Hooray for small favors.

Cal fans, what are your thoughts on the new fault line on the field? Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think.
