Converting the Atlanta Braves Baseball Stadium Into a D1 College Football Stadium


Turning the Atlanta Braves’ old baseball stadium into a football stadium and an athletic village for Georgia State University is the initial focus of this episode with Georgia State athletic director Charlie Cobb. Other topics include: corporate naming rights to facilities; how Charlie transitioned from the AD at App State to Georgia State and why he kept a folder of notes in his drawer; What retiring president Mark Becker has meant for GSU athletics; and what it’s like representing your entire conference on the NCAA D1 Council.
