Look for an agreement to be signed in the near future between the University of Minnesota and the Vikings for the use of TCF Bank Stadium during construction of the new Vikings stadium. Expect a ceiling of the Vikings paying $3 million a year -- $250,000 per game -- for use of TCF, including expenditures of some $2 million by the Vikings to install a new turf field and electric warming cables underneath it to operate during all kinds of inclement weather.
