Central Michigan University - Kelly / Shorts Stadium
This past weekend I spent a few days at Central working their High School camp and 1-day camp for recruits. We sent 5 linemen up there for the week and 2 more players for the 1-day event. The campus was nice and compact and the stadium perfectly situated on campus. On Monday, I timed 40's with Butch Jones (HC) and OC and had the chance to meet and talk to many highly touted recruits for 2009 and 2010. The turf was a great surface and the coaches were extremely inviting / inclusive. We went out for drinks one night and I got to pick the brain of their coaches for 3 or 4 hours. Talk about a great learning experience. Anyway, I left a big fan of what they are doing and I liked the stadium for a MAC school. They were the attendance leaders in the MAC this fall and have a top notch student section. I look forward to taking in a game there this fall.
Believe it or not, I am a college football fan. But I am not just a fan of the football, but also a fan of the stadiums. The places where so many battles have been waged and heros have been made. So I decided that I needed to see them all and it is my goal to eventually see each of the 120 college football stadiums in the country. Keep track of my progress and feel free to give me tickets to games at stadiums I have not attended. I am always up for a road trip.
