    Our visitor's accommodations are very good according to this article. They were built when the entire football complex were built.

I guess Furman’s were actuall worse prior to ‘81...cuz we didn’t really have any (other than a little shed), but all visiting teams stayed in the hotel a short walk away & Players dressed & showered there.

    But now, even though the facility, as a whole, is wonderful, Mercer’s may be the worst in the SoCon. The locker room, itself, isn’t so bad; even though it was ‘created’ from the old indoor baseball batting cages. It’s that there are NO SHOWERS. Players have to walk up to the basketball gym to shower & there are no locker rooms up there...and the walkway is a major ‘thoroughfare’ for fans to exit the stadium. So, nekkid Players with just towels wrapped around their waists, are sharing the sidewalk with (mostly) Mercer Fans. One group is always jubilant & the other is always pissed off. I don’t think there have been any incidents yet, but it is certainly less than ideal...although some of the coeds seem to like it.

    The Players also hate Samford’s. It’s adjacent to the stadium, but it’s still about 1/2 mile from the field & uphill & up about 1,000 steps to get there...both ways.
    30 years ago a VMI player told me that Citadel's room, that day, had THREE working showers for 60 players, etc...

    And, Samford's new FB building at the South endzone, does not have visiting team facilities?

    Its WIU. ISUb is 10yds from the field and its the old home locker room so its not bad. back in the 90s it was either ISUb or (SW)Missouri St.

    Sounds about right for ElCid, but only about 30 at a time could even fit in that small room under the lead-paint-coated stands. You had to wait your turn outside right next to the gate where they marched the Corps of Cadets in & out; so that always led to some hilarious VERBAL ONLY (they ain’t that stupid) exchanges.

    On Sammy, the South end is where the Bullpups dressed. In 2014, the visiting team went way up the hill, to the back of what I guess is their basketball arena. So kinda similar to Mercer’s situation, but I think there is enough space up there that they didn’t have to store their clothes elsewhere & do the semi-nekkid walk like they have to do in Macon. I was at the FU game there this past year and I think I remember them still using that facility...no, wait...maybe not, at halftime, they just went & hung out in the end zone, like a PeeWee game. Ain’t FCS great? So much more color than the ‘big boys.’

    BTW - the Keydets’ visitors locker room was no great shakes back in the day either. There was enough room - it was a big empty room with lockers around the 4 walls, but the lockers were standard issue high school gym lockers, so not big enough to store anything. So, we just left all our stuff in big piles on the floor...which was great for the thief/thieves that broke in during the 2nd half of the FU ‘79 game (a heart-breaking 21-20 loss for the ‘Dins on a missed XP) and took every single one of our wallets, watches, etc. Pretty funny when their insurance adjuster came to interview us in GVL the next week. Guys that hadn’t seen $100 in cash their entire lives inexplicably were carrying $300 with them that day, along with their new Rolexes, and full length leather coats. If we’d made that XP, I bet VMI’s insurance carrier would have gotten off a lot lighter...maybe not.

    Re: Who has the worst visitors' locker room in FCS?

    When Floren Varsity House was built, Dartmouth got a state-of-the-art locker room and gave its old locker room (where I dressed) to the visitors. So they are in good shape. In my day, the visitors had some pretty cramped spaces, but I don't recall it being that bad.

    While I haven't seen all of them, I'd say that among the PL and Ivy, its Georgetown with the smallest visitors' locker room.

    I don't remember that........I hope the perps got caught and drummed out (If they were indeed cadets...).

    Vis. locker room was re-vamped about 12 years ago....still not fancy, got about four of those 9" long poles per "locker" to hang stuff, but enough space for 60-62.....and 12 working shower heads....
