Toyota Stadium

Postby Cabell » Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:57 am

This was my first visit to Frisco in support of JMU. Everything about Frisco was wonderful. Toyota Stadium on the other hand was a BIG disappointment. Extremely small and cramped. Cannot see the score boards. I paid a lot of money to go to the game and it was not worth it. Even talking with some SDSU people, they stated their displeasure for the stadium.

FCS is way better than Toyota Stadium for the championship. It is my understanding that next year is the last under the current contract. I highly recommend a different place, keep it in a warm climate and at a major venue for airfare. I know as much as I support my team (JMU) I would not go back if it continues to be at Toyota Stadium.

I would be displeased if I were an SDSU fan too.

I enjoyed Chattanooga more than I enjoyed Frisco in person. Plus, Chatty is a bit closer to the geographic center of FCS.

That chili cook-off they did before the game in Chatty was terrific. Warmed you up while eating it, and then again each time you broke wind on your seat. Pure genius.

My only trip was to Chatty and I had a great time... and that's with the Hens losing, so I think that speaks volumes.

Yeah, same here. Had a blast in '07 in Chatty. App fans were generous with libations in the parking lot.

Aren't they planning on renovating Toyota Stadium? I thought I heard that there were plans on expansion and the like?

Was in Chatty in '09.

All 8 Nova fans in attendance were faggots. Well, except WideRight. He was alright.

Aren't you afraid of airplanes? Did you walk to NYC? I wasn't aware of any creek beds in Central Park where you could "camp".

Probably. I’ve flown to Orlando and back twice. Down to Mexico and back twice. And then football road trips to Boston twice, Maine and Buffalo. One more to Melbourne Fl too.

Anyway, the hobos in Central Park were surprisingly nice, and didn't care where I slung my hammock. :thumb:

Alright, alright. We'll let you play your games in WaGriz. Might as well let someone take advantage of the loud and cold. You can thank us later.

I really enjoyed Chattanooga, and have heard good things about Frisco (other than the stadium). If a new host city is needed, how about Charleston?

I have been to both and I don't see the problem. Not that I want to spend any of my $$$$$ in texas, but it is a whole f u c k load easier to get to.
Small? The place place holds 21000, nothing wrong with the stadium at all. In fact it holds 2000 more fans then the fargo dome does.

Of course, we'd have to get it back up to what it was back in the heyday when UOP played bowl games there. We took out too many seats and removing the trees from the west end zone totally ruined the place for graduations. We now have to rent the Spanos Center at UOP.

On the bright side, Lodi Union High School West Campus now owns the Grape Bowl free and clear for the first time since 1971 now that bogus Tokay High is upgrading their on-campus stadium....

It was something like two or three, Polson. And, no, the NCAA doesn't recognize them, which enabled UOP one year to be the only school I've ever heard of to play TWO bowls in one season, the other being a New Year's Day game in Texas.
