M.M. Roberts was the 50th college football stadium where I have covered an event.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – My trip to Hattiesburg, Miss., Saturday
was not only remarkably soggy, it was also memorable for another reason:
M.M. Roberts was the 50th stadium used for
college football where I have covered an event.
That makes it the perfect time for a list. It's time to rank
my stadium travels from 50-to-1.
The places I'd love to visit again. The places that weren't
as remarkable as advertised. The spots that smelled, sounded and looked like
football keepsake snapshots. The places that needed work. The places where the
tailgating scenes suggested a national holiday was going on.
There's not an NCAA rulebook to follow or a Zagat review
form to fill out. It's strictly Dr. Bo criteria.
Just my own thoughts about what I liked, what I remembered
and what seemed unique. I'll try not to let the state of the press box be a
major influence. Or traffic, but no promises on that.
I'm going to do this in installments:
The Bottom 10.
The Middle 30.
The Top 10.
I plan to have the Bottom 10 ready for your lunchtime
