An interesting topic and article, The Swamp and The Horseshoe definately are two of the toughest venues.

Sam Boyd Stadium on a Saturday Night in September when it's 118 degrees out and the field is 130 plus.
Try going to a game there and then you can argue your point.

Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

Any stadium with blue turf.

July 22, 2010  07:45 AM ET

Don't knock the blue turf...

July 22, 2010  08:06 AM ET

Who's there?

I don't like when UF goes to Death Valley at night (LSU not Clemson)....

Wyoming-pain to get to (at least 8 hours travel for anyone not in a nearby state) and is at 6000 feet. If they had a better team it would be nearly impossible for sea-level teams to compete.

I agree with MountainGator - LSU at night can be pretty tough.

Miss. State would be a tougher place to play if they ever had a consitent contender, with those (technically illegal) cowbells. Those things put the vuvuzelas to shame!

+1. Tiger Stadium is the only other place in the SEC that gets as loud as the Swamp, IMO.

I'd really like to check out Autzen (sp?) Stadium someday. They say that place rocks and only sits like 50 or 60K. Plus, those cheerleaders.....

Neyland stadium in knoxville... almost impossible to hear in.

I'm just waiting for BSU to start using blue footballs.

The Bourbon Bowl

July 22, 2010  09:31 PM ET

The Orange Bowl was the best!!! RIP....

Orange Bowl featured heat and humidity but really only filled up for major games or bowls. Many other teams fill to capacity even if there playing Bobs college. More people more noise.
Not knocking the OB but our fan base is weak compared to many other schools.

At the Old Orngie, you left the stadium at the end of the day with splinters up you beeeehind and a sore glutimous for about a week.

Night games were okay, though, because the security gods turned a blind eye to open containers. Everyone was packing (fifth of bourbon, not firearms).

I've been to Reynolds Razorback stadium in Fayetville, AR (seats 70,000)..........definately LOUD. They cant seat as many people but War memorial in Little Rock is loud for no more than is there. Weather in Arkansas always sucks so that's not worth mentioning.

I have fond memories of the Orange Bowl, my first live CFB game UM v VT.
