Rare shot of ‘Hare Stadium’

On October 6, 1973, Auburn beat Ole Miss 14-7 (check out all these photos), and Cliff Hare Stadium was born again as Jordan-Hare Stadium. That made Shug the first active football coach to have a stadium named after him (and dude dressed for the part).*

But at some point after they took the “Cliff” off and before they added the “Jordan,” and for at least the amount of time it takes for a shutter to click, it was just Hare Stadium.

Totally insane.

* At least football stadium—Ralph Jordan Jr. Track and Field in Selma was dedicated in 1970.
