    What did those of you who attended the game think of the new tunnel entrance? Kind of a big "meh" for me. I'm guessing they'll find some ways to do it up a bit more, but I think the walk through the Jake was more effective at building the suspense for the field entrance... and less awkward.

    It would be nice if they could close in on the outside of Jacobson, so we don't see them until they come out

    I hope that sometime in the near future they put a more permanent tunnel from the current tunnel to the field. That way we don't see them till they enter the field and they can stop using the blow up thing.

    They need to paint the walls of the new tunnel or something. Walking through a dark concrete tunnel is just not that impressive

    Seemed kind of weird to me, maybe just not used to it.

    Thought it was awkward and the darkness in the tunnel was terrible. Gonna need some fine tuning for sure.

    I kind of want them to trade sidelines so we don't have to deal with that crossover thing anymore

    I like the darkness of the tunnel, but the terminus of the tunnel is the issue.

    They need to work on it a lot! Especially with the ******** WV pulled yesterday.

    Darkness was due to the camera pointing directly into the sunny end of the tunnel. Cameraman fail.

    I was thinking that they would have moved the tunnel entrance to be closer to the field itself. I was surprised to see that it was all the way back by the video board's support column.

    Taunting. Should have been a 15 yard penalty at start of second half.

    I guess I only thought a tunnel or entrance like that would be cool is if the tunnel went directly onto the field... otherwise.. whats the point?

    The whole tunnel thing has been one of the most overhyped things in CF history. If it had been straight to the field it mightve been cool, but through the tunnel then just down a sidewalk and through the same old inflatable tunnel? If anything its a little bit lamer.

    I think there will be changes for next year, so i guess final judgment will have to be reserved until then.

    I thought this was very poorly planned. Not a good thing to have the visiting team walk out in front of the student section. Also crossing the field to get to the locker rooms is just asking for some sparks to fly at some point.

    Having the teams crossing paths to go into the locker room at half time seems like a huuuuuuuge mistake and terrible oversight from everyone involved. The entrance wasn't any better or worse really, but having the teams go to opposite sides seems like poor planning and just asking for trouble.
