    Re: Top Ten Facilities in U.S.

    No none has mentioned the new facility at the University of Texas at Austin. Meyer Stadium has all the field events right in front with the hammer just outside, but feasible inside if safe. A nine lane track with 20,000 seats right on the track side. The Big-12 was there this year and the NCAA next year giving the facility needed national exposure. The phenomenal Texas High School State Meet moved there a few years ago along with the Texas Relays. While the livestock grazing nearby is not as visible at at Mt. SAC, ist's easy enough to visit the Lyndon Johnson Library across the steet. Mark down Texas as a top 10 with Hayward Field and Edwards Stadium.

      Hey Geoff, have you tried sitting in the ends of the O Center instead of the sides? If so is that any better? You forgot to mention the great seating for the LJ/TJ/PV and the hammer on the lower level. Of course the participating teams usually take up most of those seats.

          I agree with the choice of Meyers stadium in Austin and also the stadium at LSU. Both are in the top 10 and probably in the top four. How can any current facility be any better than those two?

              Coach Koby: It's true if you sit at one of the ends in the O'Dome you see the side straights - and miss the turn underneath you. As for sitting downstairs, isn't that for athletes and coaches only? I've gone down there for low key meets, but it was my clear impression that that area was off-limits to spectators for big meets.

                Hey Geoff, you're right about the downstairs area. I've been able to watch meets in that area because I officiate meets there.
