Are most CFB Stadiums aligned N-S?Never noticed,Is it a big deal?I know the field at Old Cleveland Stadium was E-W alignment,not sure about the newer one

Yes, almost exclusively N-S.  Otherwise the sun could become a major factor, rising or setting in one endzone and not the other.

(and yes I know football games aren't typically played at sunrise, but it could still be a factor in 11 AM games, especially later in the season)

Only part of it is from Yale.  The other part is from North Carolina.
Neither part is stolen from "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad," though.
ZING!

EW is unusual, but neither unique nor original, nor is hedges.

Whatever.  Our originality, which is over rated anyway, is in our ability to adapt, persevere, and overcome, unless playing Bama.

And it is a killer for us, football officials when you work the sideline that is starting directly in the sun. you pull your hat down low and don't look up to high and just endure until the sun goes down behind the stands.

VERY strange commercial just on for Special K.

Now one for Coke.  Now Croustibat fish sticks.  Now Superwoman.

Commercials are all 15 seconds.

Now Amazon, seriously.  Delivery free.

Now green bean baby food, Bio.

Now for Opel.  Which once was GM.  Not very popular, seeing more Kia's around.

Now a Renault Twingo.

San Pelligigrino, very popular.

Back to the news.  Weather still cool, some soccer burfle.  Some dude with man bun cleaning out a trash can.

Well sure.  The fans, in the stands, are in the same boat. Only, being up higher, the sun doesn't dip behind the west-side stands as quickly.

LSU stadium is more NW-SE which makes total sense since they love wearing white at home, marking 5yard line numerals and playing at night as much as possible.

The Nebraska baseball team (28-20, 15-9 Big Ten) travels to Omaha this week for the Big Ten Tournament at TD Ameritrade Park.

The Huskers, who earned the No. 5 seed in the tournament after tying for third in the final regular-season standings, open the tournament against No. 4 seed Minnesota (26-25, 15-9 Big Ten) on Wednesday at 9 p.m. (CT). Every game of the eight-team, double elimination Big Ten Tournament will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
Nebraska is making its seventh Big Ten Tournament appearance in eight years since joining the conference before the 2012 season. The Huskers have taken runner-up honors twice, falling in the championship game to Indiana in 2013 in Minneapolis and 2014 in Omaha. The only season Nebraska didn’t qualify for the Big Ten Tournament was in 2018.

TD Ameritrade Park will host the Big Ten Tournament for the fourth time in 2019 after previously serving as the venue for the event in 2014, 2016 and 2018. The Big Ten Tournament will return to TD Ameritrade Park from 2020 to 2022.

Kinnick is N-S. My old high school stadium is N-S. The high school stadium in our little 5,000 population town is N-S.

As long as we are talking about orientation (geographical, that is). MLB rule 1.04 "THE PLAYING FIELD: It is desirable that the line from home base through the pitchers plate to second base shall run East Northeast."

This shows a graphic of AL parks. The rule is largely, but not entirely ignored by modern architects. http://www.baseball-almanac.com/stadium/ballpark_NSEW_AL.shtml Here is an even better graphic:

BallParkOrientation2
https://tht.fangraphs.com/lost-in-the-sun-the-physics-of-ballpark-orientation/ The only MLB Parks pointing the slightest bit into the westerly trade winds have optional roofing to prevent that from happening.

The New Brickhouse in Minneapolis is E-W. Our seats are in the shade of the clubhouse for 11 AM games in September. It's nice early but not nice later on when it's chilly. 

Starting this fall, the Gophers will have the option of using the north sideline for their bench in late-season games. The Vikings were over there during their stay.

Back home finally, hope to post some pics along the way.  They are on the Nikon.  I took my longer lens and used it never, again.

Used Lyft to get home and the first driver went to the Departures level at ATL Int Terminal.  Duh.  Then he called me and I said I was at the lower Arrivals level, and he then drove around to the Domestic terminal on the far side of the airport.  Another driver was a minute away, zoom.

We got into ATL almost an hour ahead of schedule, was in a 777, which is a nice plane I think.  Delta has something new similar to business class, ahead of Comfort where we were.  Premium Select I think it is called.  Seats and food nicer, not as pricey as Delta One, which is ridiculous.
