Something fearsome lurked under the corner of Austin Peay's end zone, and there was no telling what it could be... until now.
A 40-foot sinkhole opened when construction crews began work on what was believed to be a much smaller hole, according to The Leaf Chronicle. Initially three feet wide, it was excavated and found to be its current size. Now it's a matter of back-filling and preparing the playing surface for the fall.
Could it be Godzilla? No, no it couldn't -- but that's a heck of a lot better than calling it a "Peay hole," now isn't it?

Athletic director Derek van der Merwe took the opportunity to point out that his school remains superior to rival Murray State.
Apparently, sink holes are very popular. One more thing that we have that Murray does not... List goes on!— Derek van der Merwe (@AustinPeayAD) May 20, 2014
