Neyland Should Not Be Ranked Number One
(Baton Rouge, La. )
I like the way you have presented and ranked the stadiums of the SEC. I see why and what you did and I think you have done a very good job.
However, I find it hard to agree that Neyland Stadium should be ranked # 1 other than the fact it has the largest capacity. The Vols do have great tradition, but I went to the 2001 SEC Championship game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta between LSU and Tennessee. The crowd was about 90% UT Fans and was all Orange, but the LSU fans made more noise by far. I was not impressed with the UT fan's fierce passion.
In fairness, I must say that I have not actually been to Neyland Stadium so I am not an actual witness. As an LSU fan, I don't see how it can get any more intense or more passionate. LSU Tiger Fans do love the Tigers and they try to make it very hard on the opponent coming into that atmosphere to beat the Tigers.
