In light of Akron's being one of the two worst teams in college football, I was curious about their record since moving into brand new InfoCision Field in 2009. Answer: 40-90 (.308).

North Texas is 49-59 (.454) since Apogee Stadium opened in 2011.

45,161 fans see Ithaca beat SUNY Cortland to set D3 attendance record at MetLife Stadium

see, if we went D-III (or Ivy League) we'd have a chance to do this

Quote:This year’s Battle for the Cortaga Jug was going to be extra special because it was going to take place in the Meadowlands as Ithaca College and SUNY Cortland attempted to set a new Division III record for attendance. According to the Ithaca Journal, the pair did just that with 45,161 fans showed up to the game as the Bombers (that’s Ithaca) won their third straight Jug, 32-20.

First, we can't go Ivy League. That's simply not possible.

D-III is possible, and is probably where we are headed on our current track.

The other closest example that I can find is SMU. They used to be our peer, before North Texas became our peer. They built Ford in 2000, and is a very nice facility, if a bit small (although they certainly haven't needed more seats very often). Since then, they've gone through Mike Cavan, Phil Bennett, June Jones, Tom Mason, Chad Morris, and Sonny Dykes, and only Dykes has a winning record. Counting 2019 to date, they are 86-151 (.363).

And the EZF certainly hasn't turned things around for the better for us. Maybe for the worse, although that seems unlikely, but not for the better.

Sorry, no new news about bathrooms, but there's this connection:


Fred Cox, former Vikings kicker, inventor of NERF football, dies at age 80

Quote:MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minnesota Vikings kicker Fred Cox, one of the last of the straight-on placekickers and a standout on several conference championship teams, has died. He was 80.

Cox, who also co-created the Nerf football, scored a Minnesota-record 1,365 points in his 15 seasons, often kicking in nasty conditions because the Vikings played outdoors during his career from 1963-77. When he retired, he was second in NFL history in scoring behind George Blanda — who also played quarterback — and had made 282 field goals.

Cox was one of 11 Vikings to play in all four of the team’s Super Bowls, all defeats. He kicked in 18 postseason games.

During his playing days he also got a chiropractor’s license.

An All-Pro in 1969, Cox twice led the league in scoring while using a square-toed shoe to do his kicking. On a team with several Hall of Famers, including Fran Tarkenton, Carl Eller, Alan Page and Paul Krause, Cox also was a standout.

But he never earned a Super Bowl victory, and once said:

"The fans have never been able to live with the fact that we lost four times,” Cox said. “But the bottom line is that for any team to get there four times is an amazing feat."

Code:
Quarter     Time     Drive     Team     Scoring information     Score
Plays     Yards     TOP     MIN     MIA
4     13:25     10     57     3:09     MIN     Fran Tarkenton 4-yard touchdown run, Fred Cox kick good     7     24

Ranking all 52 Super Bowls

47. Super Bowl VIII - Miami Dolphins 24, Minnesota Vikings 7

Miami ran Larry Csonka counter to the flow of traffic, making the impact of the knifing Alan Page -- the Minnesota Vikings' Hall of Fame defensive tackle -- almost negligible. Csonka ran for 145 yards, and quarterback Bob Griese threw seven passes all game. This was pretty much awful.

For you lovers of fun facts out there: Super Bowl VIII was played at Rice Stadium. You know, the Rice Owls, a Division I powerhouse. Who would've thought?

Not expanding, but don't forget this one in Rice, TX (north of Corsicana).
