Yep...when they play it before the iron bowl it means Auburn has a 70% chance of winning...% subject to go up year after next.

When Osceola throws his spear its pretty awesome but the eagle flying over Jordan Hare with everyone doing the war eagle chant in the back ground gives me chill bumps everytime. Maybe Im partial being an Auburn grad but it is something to witness. I wish they had done that when I was a student.

I'll give you the fact that FSU's crowd has sucked for the last decade, but it sounds like many of you never went to a home FSU game back in the 80s-90s. The crowds during the 90s were insane. I still think, aesthetically speaking, Doak looks a hundred times better than the parking garage looking Ben Hill Griffin.

FSU was the first game I went to as a kid. This was in 1992, and back then the stadium looked like an erector set. Not sure how they did the facelift of putting bricks around the outside and adding dorms etc., but I am sure it is an improvement from the 90's. I would not put is as a top stadium though. I like how opposing fans don's like UF's stadium. As long as it is top 5 in the loudest stadiums it is fine with me. I would like to go to Michigans, Nebraska's, Penn State, Oklahoma and Texas to see some of the stadiums around the USA.

I agree with you, UF is one of the loudest right now, but it is butt @$$ ugly to look at. Doak looks like a freaking castle. It used to be that loud even when it was referred to as, "The erector set." Fans used to care, now it's a ton of alumni sitting on their cans doing absolutely nothing. If FSU starts winning consistently under Fisher, I think we'll see that stadium turn things around, it used to be known as one of the toughest places to play back in the day. Not so much anymore.

i won't argue over the aesthetics. you may have a point. but i went to several games back in the hay day at FSU. my first UF game was the florida/florida state game. i was on the bleachers on the field behind the end zone. i couldn't hardly hear myself yelling - that's how loud it was. FSU had good crowds back then (not saying they don't now, it's just been a few years since i've been) but florida's atmosphere was nuts. and they got their own little deal some gators on the big screen - but that doesn't touch osceola/renegade riding out to mid-field and doing their thing.

p.s. if any of you are ever in starkville on a game day - excellent game day atmosphere! did baton rouge on a sat. night too against UF. them bayou folks ain't right man. glad i can say i did it, but i ain't going back.

I may be partial but my all time favorite is Beaver stadium in State College Pa. Its not just the stadium its the town atmosphere. On game day SC turns into the 3rd biggest city in PA and there's just something about hearing the stadium when Jopa and the lions walk out of the tunnel underneath the biggest college student section in the country (27000 I think) on a white out saturday night game The roar can be heard from miles and miles away.


I also enjoy goin to Auburn games but there is nothing like a white out in happy valley

Lsu on a SEC Saturday night is a crazy place...not sure I would wear a visiting jersey though. Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville is pretty cool.
