The ticket office at Eck Stadium does not have a card reader so I had to run back to the ACC to get money out of an ATM?

I think the last game I went to, think Manship started it, was a long time ago. The fully field turf playing surface looked third rate with patches worn because of defensive positioning there, etc.


That's just one shortcoming

Eco is a horrible facility compared to other top flight programs as well as Div III programs...it's sterile and lifeless and adds to the self imposed competitive disadvantage...also the food sucks


Can they install seats? And replace the 90s blue plastic?

you a D3 field that is nicer than both of those - Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA.

I'll also tell you a HS field that is nicer than both of those - Calvert Hall College HS in Baltimore.


My son got to play on both LVC and ND.

LVC playing surface is nicer but you still can't see the Dome from there.


My son has played on LVC, picked up a win in relief there...

but to be clear, I wasn't saying it was better than ND. I was saying it was better than the two D3 examples given by the OP.


It's like the collegiate Riverfront, 3 Rivers, The Vet, etc.

Sterile. Basic. Too basic. Couldn't they divert 0.5% of the funds of Crossroads there and build some gates that would allow them to enlarge the "stadium" without actually doing much, and allow for concessions, etc.

It would be easy to add some architectural touches to the place without breaking the bank, which would at the same time add some life.
