    30 Years Ago...

    Montana had recently finished construction on a nice little 12,000 seat stadium. Here are some pics in case you wanted to see it. A friend of mine recollects walking by it at one point going to class and saying "What the hell, how do they think they are gonna fill that hole (soon to be stadium) up?!"

    Good stufff. Thanks for sharing. I scrolled down after seeing the photos and viewed a slide show titled "the evolution of Washington Grizzly Stadium". More good stuff.

    If FCS fans out there haven't been to Washington Grizzly Stadium I highly recommend it.

    It is my third favorite place to watch a college football game.

    On the flip-side, 30 years ago Holy Cross was on the top of the heap in the 1-AA world and now are an after-thought at best.

    Lots of great memories at ol WA Griz. One of the best was the fans stacking cups on the SHSU players helmets during the playoff game. The time the SFA qb stayed out the night before the game and drank with griz fans (threw like 6 ints next day) Watching southern teams walk down to the frozen river to play on the Ice. The Comeback against SDSU and The two epic playoff games against APPY!

    That 1986 team played at tradition-rich places like Michie Stadium, Harvard Stadium and Cary Field, and won them all. Did anyone dream that HC would one day be playing at places like Jack Coffey and Multi-Sport Field?

    a great setting for FCS football for sure, that Appy game several years ago had some juice to it.... felt like a big time game

    30 years.... wow
