BLUE DRAGONS SCORCH KILGORE COLLEGE … AND MORE COLLEGE FOOTBALL RESULTS FROM AUGUST 25TH

 The Hutchinson Blue Dragons incinerated the Kilgore College Rangers last night by a score of 60-29. Hard to believe it was just a 12-9 Hutchinson lead with 11 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.

SHAMELESS BRAGGING: BALLADEER’S BLOG FEATURED

My blog has once again been featured, this time in a press release and at the site of Humboldt State University. Their stadium, the Redwood Bowl, was featured in my recent bit on The Top Six College Football Stadiums In D2.

The response has been tremendous, from D2 message boards and the institutions themselves and I am very appreciative! I’ve been getting literally thousands of visits to that post over the past few days and some very nice e-mails from students and administrators at those schools. Humboldt State went the extra mile, contacting me with a few e-mail interview questions and doing that nice simultaneous press release and post at their site. Here is the link! Let’s all cheer on the Lumberjacks – http://hsujacks.com/news/2011/7/19/FB_0719114546.aspx?path=football

THE TOP SIX COLLEGE FOOTBALL STADIUMS IN NCAA DIVISION 2

Yes, I know that technically the plural form of stadium would be “stadia” but I’m going with the more generally known form here. With this post I’ll be looking at some of the D2 football venues that I feel are that division’s equivalent of D1’s Big House or The Swamp.
