I dont think there is any stadium which can be labeled "best stadium in the nation."

To have the best stadium it all depends on the atmosphere, and that is completely dependent on the fans. The best stadium to me would have to be which ever one is loudest and most distracting to the opposing team.

raucous and rambunctious fans are what make college football, be it their tailgating before the game to celebrate a great american tradition, college football, or just the pride and school spirit they posess.

From a historic standpoint the historic college institutions which take great pride in their football must be among the top. As for noise and sheer volume that is another question.

From a personal standpoint I can say that going from capacity Clemson is one of the loudest stadiums in the nation, they dont have the most fans but are still louder than most stadiums out there. The Swamp is another great place to visit if you are a Gator fan, otherwise you team is in for some trouble.

LSU has some great tailgating and SEC games there are deafening. Heck how many other schools can claim to cause seismic readings due to a football game?

Since I am a southern boy I have not had the pleasure to visit the rest of the nation's stadiums, dont be offended if I did not include some of the preeminent stadiums it is only because I have not visited them in person.


Anyway thats my two cents for what makes a great stadium, comments appreciated.

3 reasons why I'd vote for Notre Dame Stadium

TOUCHDOWN JESUS! ITS LIKE REGULAR JESUS, BUT BETTER!


THE GROTTO! BLOW OUT A CANDLE AND HOPE THAT COACH TUBBY DOESN'T HAVE A STROKE BEFORE KICKOFF!


PRETTY MUCH THE MOST AWESOME DOME IN THE WORLD!

In all seriousness, the history/intanglibles (grotto, basilica, bookstore, etc.) at ND are what make it the best IMO. The seats are small and the fans are fat...not the best combination, and the crowd is mild at best...noise wise they are easily bested by SEC stadiums (and i'm sure by Big ten, twelve, whatever...i've just only experienced SEC games outside of ND).

I have no idea, but it would be a safe bet to assume it's somewhere in Texas. I'm interested to find this out as well. I just tried google, but didn't come up with anything. I'm sure somebody will chime in.

I've never had the opportunity to attend many games, but I watch Florida games pretty religiously and every time we have to go to Neyland I crap my pants at the beginning of the game. The sea of orange is unreal and what an atmosphere, even seeing it on TV is exciting.

Neyland Stadium

Always packed to capacity at 100k+, not to mention you can park at their stadium by riverboat. Just outrageous.

Is it in the middle of f'n nowhere? Because it sure looks like it.

Ole Miss definitely has a small stadium for an SEC school, though.

What are you talking about? It's Doak Campbell, not Doak Walker. And Florida State plays there, not Florida.
