this will be merely the
3rd 2nd time the Sacred Stage of Saturday has graced the campus of Texas A&M, both of which have been against Oklahoma.
and now we play the guessing game..
from what part of campus will GameDay broadcast?
- Simpson Drill Field
Pros: provides a large open area with the Memorial Student Center and Kyle Field in the background.
Cons: not much to offer in the way of gameday atmosphere, only reason to be out there will be for the GameDay set.
- Cain Eagle
Pros:great backdrop of the Zone and the throngs of people walking around campus
Cons: not very much space to work with, and mostly concrete background, not much greenery
- SW Corner of Kyle Field
Cons: this is apparently where GameDay set up in 2000. why? i will never understand. yes, it provides good shots of the new video screens and the "Home of the 12thMan" but that's lame if there's noone in the stands..which will be the case at 9 A.M.
- **Spence Park**
Pros: if it were up to me, this is where i would have the guys setup. It is a good sized park on campus, and a major tailgate hub on game days.
Cons: the east side of Kyle is not necessarily the most picturesque or impressive backdrop..
- the grassy area in front of the Corps Museum
Pros: The networks just love to show the Corps, and that area is Corps Central on saturday
Cons: the corps constitutes only about 10% of the A&M student body, and lately has been giving opposing school's message boards a little more help than usual.
a few sign ideas are in the works, i'll give a sneak preview later this week.
(Chili and Willy Mac, i'd love some tips on making the signs. height, materials, etc.)
