What Could have been

A normal football season is a dream at this point and stadium travel is an even more distant fantasy. I’m just hoping we make some progress and I’m on the road again next Spring. In the meantime, let’s look at this list of would-be football trips and remember the good old days of watching a game live:


Option 1
Sep 10 – UAB at Miami – Hard Rock Stadium
Sep 11 – Philadelphia at Miami – Marlins Park
Sep 12 – FIU at UCF – Spectrum Stadium
Sep 13 – Indianapolis at Jacksonville – TIAA Bank Field

  • A trip to the Sunshine State that may have been cancelled by a hurricane anyway. Start in South Florida on Thursday-Friday, then drive to Orlando for an intrastate battle and then finish off in a place that I think might the first to replace seats with la-z-boy’s


Option 2
Oct 8 – Tulane at Houston – TDECU Stadium
Oct 9 – High School Football in the Houston area
Oct 10 – UAB at Rice – Rice Stadium
Oct 11 – Jacksonville at Houston – Reliant Stadium

  • I would have strongly considered doing this trip as it is all confined to a city I visited a few years ago. You could even get away with not renting a car as all stadiums are accessible via the city’s MetroRail. Though I would still probably leave the area to get a true taste of High School Football in Texas by visiting a rural town.


Option 3
Nov 20 – Syracuse at Louisville – Cardinal Stadium
Nov 21 – Purdue at Indiana – Memorial Stadium
Nov 22 – Green Bay at Indianapolis – Lucas Oil Stadium

  • You could probably throw a Saturday basketball game into the mix here as well. Each major city is less than two hours apart with Bloomington not far out of the way, so this trip is pretty simple. Football season is nothing like basketball season in this area, but still, the games and experiences would be fun.
