College Football Tour for the Detroit News
My first stop is Friday in Mt. Pleasant when Central Michigan takes on Indiana in the season-opener at Kelley Shorts Stadium. My next stop is at Michigan State's home opener where there is a chance Little B might make his college football debut.
Every weekend afterwards I will stop by Michigan colleges both big and small looking for the meaning of college football. The Detroit News bought one of my ideas to travel across the state to write about slices of life surrounding collegiate games.
And I will report my findings to you every week.
The CMU game is significant because it is the first time a Big Ten team has played on campus. This is the biggest game in school history since the Chippewas beat Michigan State twice in Spartan Stadium.
There is also a chance The Sports Inferno might broadcast from Mt. Pleasant. We are trying to find a location to make it work.
After this weekend I don't know where I might end up. I may show up at Alma, Olivet, Hope or Wayne State. I am going to be on the look out for interesting stories. If you have any ideas please email them to FosterNews@aol.com. Or you can post right here.
I am excited about the project because I love new discoveries.
I will also have a new responsibility with The Detroit News, but I cannot say what just yet.
