Under the leadership of Coach Amos Alonzo Stagg (SDN-000884), the University of Chicago's football team became outstanding and spectators began to show up en masse for games with well-known rivals, such as the University of Michigan in 1903 (SDN-002007). There were relatively few football stadiums, and many games were played at Marshall Field on the campus of the University of Chicago (SDN-002000). Football fields were marked in squares (SDN-002177) rather than stripes, and by 1907, fans in the grandstand organized to form a "C" for Chicago (SDN-006126). Soon the football field at the University of Chicago was named in Stagg's honor (SDN-004433).
