I'm surprised they didn't choose a firm with a more sophisticated background and location. Fortunatley it sounds like they will only be involved in the construction and not the design.

Wow...wasn't this touted as a boom to MINNESOTA businesses? A Wisconsin firm gets the bid? I guess it's about time the wizard comes out behind the curtain.....

For crying out loud people, they're using a firm that has experience in the building of an NFL stadium. I swear most of the posters in these discussions are in desperate need of a hobby.
