I guess these blogs are not coming off as clearly as I intended. So I will just say it. You missed my point. Twice.
When writing the story of the game at Sherman, I listed in my story that Bearcat Stadium was built in 1940. According to their website, that is a fact.
I did call it an antique, maybe historic would have been a better descriptive phrase. I like older, unique stadiums. I spent many years of my life walking the sidelines of the Tomato Bowl in Jacksonville, another stadium built in 1940. The Tomato Bowl is one of my favorite places in the world.
I did not insult the Sherman stadium, I did not sit in the stands. It seemed adequate for all needs. It had more sideline room than some newer stadiums and the lights were great.
Anything built in 1940 just is not going to have all the bells, whistles and comforts of a new stadium, that's another fact.
The other story I had Monday was about recent success of the Wildcats after losing big. I am not living in the past by using the 2009 and 2008 team as an example as what is possible.
They are part of history and don't help this team. But when the coaches know they have done it before that rubs off on the players and they get confidence from that.
That was my point. Yes, they can win more games and make they playoffs. And I am talking about the 2010 Wildcats.
