The best thing about that stadium^^? It's named after a SOONER!! Gotta love it!! I couldn't resist!! LOL!!

Only 235 days 'till RRS #104!!! Are YOU ready?

Oh, my college stadium? I call it "The Holy Land". Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium at Owen Field
One of the greatest places on earth.
And it sure as heck isn't named after a 'horn!! Well, on second thought, I guess the word Gaylord and 'horns have some similarities. hmmm never realized that.

NGB,

Even though I still cringe when I think about it, did you go to the OU/Tech game in November? If so how loud was it? Did it cause eardrums to burst?

Others, keep them coming!

Carter-Finley stadium, NC State: It's cool, nothing spectacular about it, but that to me makes it cool. Underwent a 5-year renovation the fully enclosed the place, got new fieldhouses on opposite sides of the field. Used to be a thin wall that would seperate the two teams locker rooms. Pretty easy to get in and out of, unless the state fair happens to be going on at the same time.

The other college teams stadium I follow, Texas, was described by Packersnut21. I've been by it before, wouldn't mind going to a game there someday. Though im not a fan of those HD jumbrotrons. Just seems to be more of a way to put up advertising space.

I drive by BofA stadium (Panthers) pretty often. Nice place, but nothing too special

No, I was in Vegas on business. My friends said it was the loudest that place has ever been. For some reason they don't do alot of night games there. I was fortunate enough to go to the OU/KU game and watch Bradford set a school record for passing though. Also went the CCG in KC, boatloads of fun!!

Maybe I can swing our "home opener" at Jerry's world this year. BYU is going to be a tough 1st game. I just wish we didn't play so many games in Dallas, it kind of sucks. Looks like we'll be down there 3 times this year.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to a Saturday afternoon in the Big House. (Michigan stadium)

Paul Brown Stadium were the bengals play is real nice. The team sucks but they play in a nice stadium. Paid for by my taxes though which sucks.

Nippert stadium were The University of Cincinnati needs alot of udate but is the 5th oldest in collage football. They are renovating it for next season. The best part is they serve beer.
