Brian: We have just about passed the halfway mark between Memorial Day and Labor Day and the football coverage has slowly started to pick up.
After an impressive performance to close out ‘11, former Cleveland Browns Head Coach Romeo Crennel was given the same title for Kansas City, after a brief stint as interim coach.
Although the Chiefs certainly have some question marks on the offensive side of the ball, their fans continue to flock to each of their games, making Arrowhead Stadium among the most difficult places to play in the NFL.
On November 19, 2005, the playing field at the stadium was named in honor of former Auburn coach and athletic director Pat Dye.
The venue is now known as Pat Dye Field at Jordan–Hare Stadium.
The Auburn-Florida game was originally scheduled for Dec. The game was rescheduled in order for the stadium to be dedicated on Thanksgiving Day, Auburn officials seemingly wanting the significance of the occasion to dovetail with America's established Thanksgiving Day football tradition, a plan nearly thwarted by Franklin D. Had Alabama not chosen to observe Thanksgiving on its original date, the stadium likely would not have been dedicated until 1940.
