    Tennessee and Virginia Tech to play FB game at Bristol Motor Speedway

    To happen in 2016.

    Virginia Tech, Tennessee to play football game at Bristol Motor Speedway

    This part is crazy

    But this isn’t the first time Virginia Tech and Tennessee have discussed a game in Bristol, Tenn. Back in 2005, Bruton Smith, the chairman and chief executive of Speedway Motorsports Inc., offered each school $20 million to play a nonconference game at the racetrack.

    I would think there would be a lot of bad seats at that place for watching football.

    I agree - if the football field will be smack dab in the middle of the infield, the seats are a long ways away...

    We should play Iowa in Newton for 20 million.

    I vote they have a car race going on at the same time.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Hey, they have a track around the field just like Kansas!

    I feel bad for any receiver going to the far corner on a fade route.

    Hell, I wouldn't be mad about ISU playing VT there for $20 million. I wouldn't be mad if we play K-state or KU at Kansas Speedway for $5-10 million.

    Re: Tennessee and Virginia Tech to play FB game at Bristol Motor Speedway

    I would imagine they are going to have to take down all the buildings in the interior of the track. I wonder if this all part of some grand plan to renovate the infield.
    If you had 150,000 paying $75 a ticket that would only be a little over $11 million in revenue. I wonder how they could have justified that $20 million each in 2005
