No Horseshoe? No Swamp? Callin’ shenanigans, arbitrary NCAA.org rankings.
Makes sense that Death Valley takes the top spot here. Tiger Stadium’s capacity crowd of 92,542 essentially serves as a fall-long warm-up for Mardi Gras. Don’t know if it’s Les Miles’ penchant for an all-grass diet, or maybe the crowd’s legitimately pants-shittingly terrified by the over-literal interpretation of “Eye of the Tiger” at midfield, but the Baton Rouge faithful sure know how to bring it each and every Saturday they’re not playing Nick Saban.
As for the rest of the top five?
No. 5: Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech
No. 4: Camp Randall Stadium, Wisconsin
No. 3: Kyle Field, Texas A&M
No. 2: Autzen Stadium, Oregon
No. 1: Tiger Stadium, LSU
Great to see Wisconsin’s “Jump” tradition singlehandedly propel Camp Randall into the upper-echelon, but I have to say, Blacksburg’s an interesting round-up of the top five. Gut’s saying that a Hokies team should at least be a top 25 team to qualify for this completely random ranking. Same time, though, if Lane Stadium still gets earsplitting long past the days of Mike Vick, well, maybe you Laird & Company-swilling fuckers really are as crazy as everyone claims.
Pissed that Bryant-Denny, Between the Hedges, Happy Valley, or (insert your particular inadequate college stadium here) didn’t make the top-tier cut? Loudly sound off in the comment section. Unless you jokers root for the Maize & Blue, in which case, raise a barely audible ruckus.
