Neyland Stadium

Neyland Stadium is a special place. I grew up watching it on tv every fall Saturday, and eventually spent quite a bit of time in it when I attended The University Of Tennessee. It holds a special place in my heart, so I made this illustration as a love letter of sorts.

If you don't know much about SEC football or American football in general, I'd encourage you to learn a little bit about the place. Neyland is one of the largest stadiums in the world and has been the centerpiece of one of college football's most storied programs for close to 100 years. As the great Inky Johnson said: "It's a blessing to play this game. It's a privilege to play it here."

The phrases at the top are General Neyland's famed Seven Maxims of Football.
