It was held in the University of North Texas Apogee Stadium. Our seats were higher than I care to go unless I'm inside an airplane. The band, touted as 'the largest band in the land,' has over 700 kids and fills the whole field. There were more students in the drill team, flag squad, and cheerleading squad than in my graduating class. Not once did I hear anyone behind us say, "Isn't number 16 the nephew of Gomer who used to be married to your cousin Fern?" The drive to and from was over an hour in heavy traffic through interchanges out of Star Wars. I guess the teams are pretty good but I don't follow football so I can't speak to that.
By the way, Allen won.
