That's cool. I've never seen the old stadium before. People used to tell me the 'old stadium' was next to Hadley whenever we'd walk by it but I never could picture how it would fit in that location. Interesting post.
I worked as an usher at a lot of games in that stadium. Two stories.
As you can see the stands are pretty close to the field. You had to watch out not to get clocked by Solano Joe Pisarcik throwing the ball out of bounds. He had a seriously strong arm that got him into the NFL and that ball would zip.
I was working the end zone at one game against Wichita State and the Aggies scored. The ROTC fired off the cannon and the flaming newspaper hit an WSU player setting him on fire for a second. It was pretty funny (they put him out right away). Now that is a tough stadium!
