College Football Stadium Review: Faurot Field

Publish date:

We've got some time to kill before college football comes back into our lives, and since I am known as a helpful and informative person (probably not true), I am gonna take the next however many weeks and offer you thorough reviews of each SEC stadium.  And by thorough review, I mean I'll be using my exceptional bias, Google reviews, and lots of colored lines hand drawn on Google maps.

My qualifications for such an endeavor are that I've been to all the SEC stadiums but Missourah's, usually to witness a skull-dragging of Ole Miss, and I can look up stuff on Google Maps pretty quickly.  I suggest that you file these informative reports away for your road trip destinations this season so you won't end up like that pair of Oklahoma State fans I saw walking around a couple of miles away from the old Cotton Bowl, waiting to be murdered.

Right off the bat, there's a major problem (not to be confused with the dozens of smaller problems) with this review:  I've never been to Columbia to a game, so this time I really do indeed have no idea what I'm talking about.  However, lack of information has never stopped me from yammering away, so on we press. 

Most of what you'll see below is intelligence gathered from about five minutes of looking at the screenshot I took.  Unlike the reviews of the other stadiums, if you follow this one, you will experience nothing enjoyable because you'll just stay in one place since I can really only say with authority, "Hey, there's the stadium."

After you've picked up a Brad Smith jersey, seen the trees, and walked to the ass-end of the map if you need tickets, it's time to go in the stadium.  I continue to stress that I know nothing here, but here's my best guess of what that will be like.

But enough about what I don't know, let's see what the slice of those who are Missouri fans, Internet users, AND Google review posters have to say about their stadium.

And that was it.  So, in summary, Missouri fans are excited about a highly touted freshman receiver, there is a golf course near Faurot Field, and Google reviews is not very popular among the Missouri faithful.
