MARS - The Blue Devils practice field at a location north of Concord in California. Originally, MARS was an acronym for Marching And Rehersal Site, but really caught on because of the plethora of gopher holes and other crevices and craters that have to be tended and filled each year to transform the field into usable (and safe) marching surface. During the summer months the northern California weather and the wear of many feet make much of the surface bare of grass and dry giving it the look of the surface of Mars.
