  1. When I moved here in 84 I worked a Rec Sports in Memorial Hall and my office window looks into the stadium!

    Is that the original Joe Tereshinski?

    Site of the old PE biilding, right? I think it was also called Stegeman? Lots of basketball courts, I think the football coaches’ offices might’ve been in that building in the late ’60s.

    Some of the earliest bad uniform designs from Nike.

  5. The elusive photo I want to see is a view from a newly completed Memorial Hall balcony (I think 1924 or 1926) down into the wooded ravine that became the stadium. I’ve seen the construction photos that exist, I’d love to see a picture of the ravine / tanyard creek prior to groundbreaking.

    The early stadium and playing grounds between the “two” campuses reminds me of the pace and atmosphere of what a nice prep school today would be like. Do your learning, walk down the hill and get your exercise after classes, walk back up with the same folks and go eat dinner and then go back to the dorm where everyone lives. Now, it’s buildings on every square inch, buses flying by and people living anywhere in Athens.



      I want to say that the ESPN documentary on football in the SEC “Saturdays in the South: Part I or II” showed the photos of the grounds before the stadium was built, but I may be misremembering that. Worth a look if it’s out there still.

    Senator, Thanks for the history lesson.
    I’ve been looking for a thread to post this comment and this one seems to fit the bill. I live alone and when I do get to go to the office, most days I’m the only one in the building. This blog is one of the things I look forward to every day. It’s keeps me going.
