June 9 marks 87 days to the start of the major college football season on Sept. 3, 2015. Every day leading up to kickoff to the 2015 season we’ll take you back to a photo from our travels last season, a photo that may or may not be in our upcoming publication, the College Football America 2015 Yearbook. The book will be available this summer through Amazon.com, iBooks (please download the iBooks app to purchase and view) and Lulu.com. When the book hits the streets we’ll let you know. It’s the most comprehensive guide to the college football season, with preview information on every conference and every team in every division of the game in a high-quality, all-color presentation. We hope you’ll check it out. Until then check out our 2014 edition at Amazon.com and iBooks.
I did a few days in North Carolina, my birthplace, last year. I hit the Duke-North Carolina football game at Duke and the Georgia State-Clemson game at Clemson. In between I found myself in Charlotte and on the campus of UNC-Charlotte, which goes by Charlotte for its sports teams. I’ll tell you this — the 49ers have some fantastic facilities on campus, and that includes McColl-Richardson Field, the home of 49ers football. Of course, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson had a lot to do with the construction of this field. But it’s in a great location on campus and this photo is across the street between a couple of university buildings. It made me want to get back for a game at some point.
Check in with us tomorrow for our next photo in our College Football America Flashback.
