Good? Bad? Ugly?

Texas Tech's (Jones) is pretty good, imo. It gets very loud (mainly at night). There isn't a bad seat, and the renovations a few years ago greatly improved it. More enhancements are on the way, including more seats, boxes, a hall of fame, and others.

Plus, the coach's extension doesn't hurt.

How about yours?

College: Ohio State. It's The Horseshoe. Enough said.

NFL: Colts. Lucas Oil Stadium is a palace, but in terms of atmosphere it's a notch down from the ol' Dome. The newer stadiums all seem to be like that.

College: Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The place is just disgusting.

Pro: Superdome. Biggest indoor stadium in the world. Speaks for itself.

Beaver Stadium

It gets crazy, and everyone wears white, and just white-outs the stadium

Plus the food in state college is not half bad

Ohio Stadium.

Home of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Best by far.

The Glass Bowl (Toledo Rockets) is a lot of fun too.

Neyland Stadium (Tennessee Vols) is big and has great view.

LP Field (Tennessee Titans) is terrible.

I'd like to get to Baton Rougue someday and see a game.
Norman and Lincoln would be on my list too.

Other than my hometown teams, I've been to UK's Commonwealth Stadium which is pretty cool and Camp Randall which is also sweet but they don't take debit cards at the concession stands, just cash.

As for the pro's, Jacksonville's Municipal Stadium is nice but basically average, Arrowhead is great and RFK is awesome, I don't care what they say.

I've been to the 'Shoe but that was back in the day and I saw the Crew. Pretty nice though.

College: DK Royal An amazing place with a HUGE Texas sized video screen.

Pro: Lambeau Field, speaks for itself. The Packers didn't sell out like other teams in pro sports and knock it down and build something new, the updated it and kept the history. Gave me chills walking through it.

College - RossAde Stadium - Purdue

I like it. I know a lot of "experts" rate Ross-Ade as a generally average place at best. I have a blast every time I go though. The tailgating is fun, the atmosphere is fun, the bantering with the other team's fans (except Ohio State fans); it is all a good time. Plus, West Lafayette is a fun place.
