Cal's not playing at the Swamp. But, it is louder than both.

Love the support for the Gophers, but there ain't no way Minnesota's new pad is anywhere close to Autzen.

Autzen's 59,000 strong make the Big House collectively sound like a pathetic whimper. It's louder than any place I've ever been, and that includes "The Swamp" at Florida, "The Shoe" in Columbus and "Death Valley" at Louisiana State. Autzen Stadium is where great teams go to die."
- J. Brady McCullough, The Michigan Daily.

"Per square yard, the loudest stadium in the history of the planet."
- Keith Jackson, ABC Sports.

"The Autzen Bounce causes deafness in laboratory rats."
- Dennis Dodd, CBSSportsline.

"Q: What would you say the loudest stadiums are? Corso: I think Autzen Stadium. Per person, the Oregon stadium is the loudest stadium I've ever been in. The fact that it's so low to the ground doesn't allow the sound to escape."
- Lee Corso, ESPN GameDay.

"If you've never been to a game at Autzen Stadium do yourself a favor and get there soon. One word for the experience. Loud. Hurt your ears loud. Make them bleed loud. The Big Ten has nothing as loud as Autzen."
- BigTenTailgate.com

"Per capita, Autzen is the loudest venue in all of college football."
J. Brady McCollough, The Michigan Daily.

"It's very tough. The crowd there is unbelievably educated on when to be loud and when to calm down when they have the ball. It's just a very tough environment with the noise and just trying to communicate."
- Jeff Tedford, Cal HC

"They are very difficult to beat at home. The crowd is, from every report I get, from every coach I've spoken with, a real factor. You have to learn to communicate without talking, because talking doesn't do you any good."
- Lloyd Carr, Michigan HC (before playing at Autzen).

"That's the loudest stadium I've ever been in."
- Lloyd Carr, Michigan HC (after playing at Autzen).

"Crowd noise is almost an unfair advantage. You can't check plays, you seemingly have less time on the play clock and everything starts to feel really rushed."
- Troy Taylor, Cal QB

"They're going to be loud from the first snap until the last snap. They are right on top of you and they're just relentless."
- Barry Alvarez, Wisconsin HC.

"You can hear a pin drop when their offense is on the field, and when our offense is out there, it's like being in a thunderstorm."
- Thomas DeCloud, Cal Safety.

Anyone hear about the almost finalized Yankee Stadium bowl plans?

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/15/sp...15newbowl.html

As a Big East supporter, I am all for getting our name out there, and I like seeing teams duking it out in cold weather (Tv spectator perspective) but fighting the 7th pick of the Big 12....even I must yawn to that one. That's like Big East vs. a bad K-State or any Iowa State

Smart move on your part. I thought they might win but the dominated, and with some pretty big hits. The next couple weeks should be interesting when they play Va tech and OU.
