I've been thinking. With all of these heavy rivalry games that gain Classic potential, which cities could be possible locations for such Classic games to begin? For instance, a BoomBox Classic could occur if the neutral site were to be Shreveport, LA, or Biloxi,MS, if the city has a large stadium.
- Tenn State vs UAPB would fit well in Memphis, creating a border war-like aura for both institutions
- Norfolk State vs NCAT in Raleigh or inside of Richmond's indoor field
Also, Classic like games that were previously played in major cities could return
- Southern vs Alabama State in Mobile
- SCSU vs NCAT in Charlotte
There could also be toured cities that draws enough fans and alumni to host Classics as well. Imagine a SwAC game played in Seattle or a MEAC game in Boston.
Knowing money could, or is usually and issue, this is only thoughts. General feedback is welcome.
SU vs. FAMU in Mobile
As far as neutral sights and ATL goes, keep FAMU and SCSU outta the convo.... ATL is very pro-FAMU and pro-SCSU over the other HBCUs... some would think over MoB/Morehouse/Clark
BoomBox Classic is fine like it is both atmosphere is great already
If any where they should play it back down in N.O. as the Big Easy Classic like they did in 04
Boombox Classic in Hattiesburg @ Southern Miss. Call it the Hub City Classic.The capacity is about 36,000. It would be a sellout for sure!
Dome atmosphers are usually not as exciting due to the more laid back setting and things, even with the Bayou Classic. If the Bayou Classic was held outdoors like in Shreveport or at LSU, it would be ALOT more crunk and entertaining.
Heres my list:
SU vs TxSU in Beaumont, TX
NCATSU vs SCSU in Charlotte, NC
thats all . lol
Neyland Stadium seats 100,000 +, it would look crazy having all of those empty seats there.
BoomBox needs to be made into an official classic tho IMO...if it's made into one it might not keep that name but still
