The Almost Names of Jordan-Hare Stadium

It’s Jordan-Hare Stadium. It could have been Something Else Stadium.

There’s kind of this idea, when you read Auburn history stuff, that an on-campus stadium at Auburn was basically the sole vision of Coach Jack “Green Jersey” Meagher. And Lord knows he was a champion of the idea, and a driving force for it once things really got going.

In early 1934, his first year on the job, the WPA kinda sorta broke ground for “a concrete stadium to put Auburn on the map,” as records from the Physical Plant put it, on the site Jordan-Hare now occupies.
