Home of Western Illinois University

On a beautiful weekend in early November, 2007, Allan and I visited Macomb, Illinois, to attend a college football game betweeen Western Illinois University [Macomb} and Southern Illinois University [Carbondale] It was a successful adventure [since Southern Illinois won the game], and we had a really good time in this small Illinois town that I had only visited once before.

We enjoyed strolling the campus, seeing the game, and taking a short visit of the square in Macomb.

Pros and Cons

    What a great trip you had. Looks like a great adventure, especially since the Salukis won the game. Love that Sherman building.

    You certainly are loyal alumni. :) I don't even know if my university has a football team at all. Glad you had such a good time in this pretty town.

    As a sports fan (English football, or soccer to you!) I especially enjoyed reading about the football game - sounds like an exciting finish!

    Watching a closely contested football game in a cute little town on a beautiful November day is not a bad way to spend your day! Very nice tips on Macomb.
