WATCH OUT, WATCH FOR THE VANDY MAN: OILERS GO TO VANDERBILT
Published March 5, 1998
The NFL Oilers have "hammered out a tentative agreement with" Vanderbilt Univ. to play its '98 home schedule at the school, according to John Glennon of the Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL. Glennon wrote that "three issues still must be cleared before the deal becomes official." First, the involved parties must "seek the blessing" of the surrounding neighborhood, which "has expressed concern about traffic, parking and security" on game days; second, the Oilers and Vanderbilt must figure out a way to "appease conflicting stadium advertisers"; and third, some details of the lease must be finalized and signed by both parties. Glennon reported that "all involved were confident the potential drawbacks could be overcome" (COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 3/4).
