If the UT has a dime and two pennies, they'd make this happen. Neyland is badly in need of upgrades and renovation. This would surely help pay for a chunk of it. Not to mention the national attention brought to the Vols foot ball brand.
I doubt the University would ever let something like this happen. I have often wondered why they haven't pushed for a bowl game over the years. 100,000+ seat stadium in a great area? I figure Haslam could have sponsored it.... The Pilot Flying J Circus Bowl......
It’s essentially saying the NHL would like to do an outdoor game in the next year or two in Nashville. They can do it in an NFL stadium or college stadium, or if push comes to shove in a smaller park type setting.
The big issue is they need about 3 weeks of prep time, which could interfere with NFL schedules. The outdoor game is usually on New Years Day. Being a Vol fan I couldn’t help but think how amazing it would be to see it in Neyland.
Beside working it out with the school the biggest issue I see is that the fans would likely want to have it in Nashville. But still can’t help but dream about how interesting it would be! Also thinking about the game being held at Vandy makes me want to vomit.
Oh and I’m placing it in the football section because it’s a question about Neyland Stadium.
Says the guy that only wants football in Neyland. That's thinking small. I think use for Hockey once a year and then a Lacrosse Tourney in the spring would be great. But then single mindedness of the some of posters on VN, never ceases to amaze me.
