Kudos to our band yesterday. They had to start with homecoming the night before, then CGD at 9 am which meant very early arrival. Continuing on through the heat and excitement of the Auburn game. Finally heading out after dark. My brother was there taking video of them as they finally left the stadium around 9 pm.
Hey Mojave, you were in band, right? When do they get a chance for a meal on a day like that? A fine performance all day long.

You pretty much have to catch something before you go to the game and then do without. Homecoming was always a challenge, with the performance at the stadium the night before, then the trek to the music building the next morning, on to the stadium, and then game time.
During my time at UF, the field was AstroTurf. During the early season games, I could feel the heat coming up through the soles of my shoes. I can't imagine trying to play on that with a full set of pads on.

It was passed out to us in the stands after pregame and halftime. My understanding is that at that time, the university got it for free from the manufacturer (at least the instant, which is what we used).
