The Stadium Experience:

This experience will be remembered for a VERY long time. It was simply memorable. These are some of the best fans I have ever encountered. They were fun, friendly, and simply warm people. I sat near a group of season ticket holders, that regaled me on last yearís big win over Boise State, on moving to the Mountain West, and on Reno in general. I was invited to their tailgate on my next visit to a game. They even brought a large black trash bag to police their area! Great people and simply great fans! I didnít think anyone could top the fans at Michie Stadium, but this took the cake - 10. I sat at the top of section five, which is roughly the 45. From there you can see everything! If you are into seeing and hearing the hits up close then this isnít for you, but if you are into taking in the full stadium the sights and sounds, I recommend sitting here. Not only is it a great place to see the game and the bandís routines, you get to look at the beauty of Nevada. The mountains that surrounded us with a bit of cloud cover was simply breathtaking - 9. The atmosphere in this place was electric. I have been to big events where winning or losing meant everything, where the crowd and players were reaching a fever pitch, but this was different. The game was a blowout, but the fans, all of the fans not just the ones I was near, were still rocking and shouting Nevada after EVERY first down. They just love their Wolfpack. Gotta give that a 9. Parking is laid out all around the stadium. I took a free shuttle from downtown Reno that took 10 minutes to get to and from the stadium, yet it seemed cars were able to get out pretty easily after the game. Thatís a 9 in my book. Mackay Stadium was awesome for so many reasons it gets a 42!
