Week of 8/25/2014

Where are at this weekend:

The 2014 College Football Season is off to a rousing start, and the boys at somanystadiums are in already in the mix – picking up 6 games in one weekend. Shady was out of the gate first, heading to Atlanta to catch the kick off classic. Neutral site games don’t count, but his love of the Broncos runs deep. In what he described as an offensive mess of a game, Ole Miss blew up on Boise in the 4th quarter to run away with it.

Shady continues to support his favorite teams, traveling up to UConn on Friday night to see BYU tackle the Huskies. He wraps up an epic weekend by attending the Fla St. vs OSU game in Dallas. For those of you keeping track at home, that’s Atlanta on Thursday to Hartford on Friday with a finish in Dallas on Saturday. When we say we are fans of college football, we mean it.

Pat is Houston to watch the LSU Tigers play the Wisconsin Badgers. He doesn’t pick up another stadium as it a neutral site but it should be a great game. As for me, Tree, I am heading over to Toledo to catch the Rockets play New Hampshire. It is a 7pm kick off which has presented a unique opportunity. Pitt hosts Delaware at noon on Saturday. I have already been to the old Pitt stadium so I wouldn’t pick up another stadium, but I haven’t seen the Panthers play at Heinz field. It presents a bit of a logistical challenge if the game goes the distance as it is about a 4 hour drive to Toledo from Pittsburgh. So noon start at Pitt puts me at say 3:00 – 3:30 and then 4 hour drive to Toledo says I miss the kickoff and a robust(?) tailgating scene. On the other hand, say Pitt blows out UD early, I could bolt at 2 pm leaving plenty of time for Toledo. Since I got free tickets to the Toledo game, the Pitt tickets wouldn’t hurt the budget. Confirmed as I just bought the tickets. Pitt here we come.

One thing is for sure, whether it is I79 South or I90 West, we’ll be getting our game on in the heart of football country.

Unless Momo’s got a secret schedule going, the team of Tree and Shady will add two more stadiums to what is already a sizable lead.

Week of 11/12/2013

Wrap up of previous week:

Shady picked up Wisconsin last week which was bittersweet as he was pulling for BYU to get the upset. Per Shady, unimaginative play calling doomed the Cougars. Everyone else was idle, although Tree did manage to catch a glimpse of the Frostburg State game on Saturday – nothing like DIII football where the players are small but the hearts are oh so big.

Where we are this Week:

Tree is the only one out on the road this week. He is heading to the Coop to see the Blue Hens of the University of Delaware. Word is that the ‘Hens are looking to make the jump to the FBS soon. So it may not count now, but if they make the jump, the stadium visit will be grandfathered in. Tree has heard good things about the Coop. He just hopes the Spiders of Richmond keep it close.
