    Found this in the E-T.

    Tavani’s being his normal self, but seriously they should consider moving this anniversary game to a bigger venue. Not sure Yankee Stadium is the right fit, but … I like the idea of having it in the metro area, then go to Lafayette for 151, Lehigh for 152, etc..

    Other suggestions: Michie Stadium? Franklin Field? I like the historical notion of a stadium, as long as it’s big enough …

    It’d be great to see 30,000 or more people there …

    It is interesting. Pard home game. Dont blame them for some resistance to moving game.
    Where?
    Yankee Stadium discussed ad nauseum, not a real option.
    Franklin, Palmer, PPL. Not too many real options. Better to expand seating. Unfortunatrly Fisher not that amenable to adding a lot of temporary bleachers..

    I don’t like the idea. Logistical issues. Getting all the students there. Franklin Field? Yankee Stadium? Where’s the tailgating going to occur? Only CBP or Rutgers would seem reasonably close and the size of stadium wanted. You really don’t want a lot of empty seats either.  Fisher might squeeze in another 3,000 seats. So what. Where are all these fans the other years? Leotards get 150, we get 175. It’s only a number.
