    UD should visit Mississippi State some day. I’d never seen a campus on which the football stadium itself is literally at the center of the campus.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Ralph: I didn’t know that! I’m going to Mississippi State’s website and taking a look.

  3. Crimson05er Says:

    Reminds one of how Huey Long paid for a gargantuan expansion of LSU’s football stadium — home to gladiators to match his imperial ambitions — during the midst of the Great Depression: by building dormitory space under the new bleachers and reorienting the entire campus around what had been its fringe.
