1 - What stadiums has everyone been to?

2 - How do you rank them from best to worst (excluding YOUR team's stadium)?

3 - Your "hit list / wish list" of stadiums to visit you have not seen from most want to visit to least


I have been to:
  • UGA - of course
  • Auburn
  • Vandy
  • South Carolina
  • Ole Miss
  • Alabama
  • Gator Bowl (does not really count)
Ranking them:
  • Ole Miss
  • Bama
  • South Carolina
  • Auburn
  • Vandy
Where I want to go:
  • LSU
  • Tennessee
  • Arkansas
  • Kentucky
  • aTm
  • Mizzou
  • Florida
  • Miss State

Florida is low on my list because it will never be against us.

Miss State? Sorry, I am just not that excited about a trip to Starkville...

I have also been to GA Tech a bunch, have been to 3 Sugar bowls and a few Peach Bowls

I have lived in Bham now for just over 10 years and have not been to a game at Legion Field.

I may have to do that this year, pick a good noon time game just to check it out (noon time so I don't miss important games on TV and to reduce the chances that I get mugged or have my car broken into)

I MIGHT just find a way to make it to Little Rock and/or Lexington this year.
They don't think it be like it is, but it do!

I've thought about going to UF's stadium before, but then I remembered that I didn't want herpes

If you enjoy beautiful women, a beautiful campus, a stellar view from the stadium, family friendly, along with the best bar selection of any college town..... Athens, GA would be a nice place to visit.

I've been everywhere except Missouri and Arkansas.

They are all awesome except for Vandy, OM, and A&M.

LSU, Florida, Auburn, and Tennessee have the best atmospheres, without debate.

I have been to every stadium except Texas A&M.  If I'm ranking them on atmosphere alone:

Ole Miss
1.  USCe  (played them on a Thurs. and it was rocking)
2.  LSU  (been to about 5 or 6 and they have all been loud)
3.  Bama  (unfortunately had to make this trip too many times with the recent scheduling but its legit)
4.  Auburn  (really cool pre-game and pretty cool band intro
5.  MSUx  (cowbells sadly help make it pretty electric)
6.  Georgia  (got blown out after halftime and it became a big party)

Everything else was pretty even and it could be just the time slot of the games Ive been too.  Arkansas got pretty crazy in the second half but that had a lot to do with Nutt's return.  All I remember is Coach telling us to cover our heads and seeing a bunch of crazy fans chunking batteries at us when we ran out of the tunnel.

7.  Florida  
8.  Tennessee
9.  Arkansas
10.Missouri
11.Kentucky
12.Vanderbilt

If your just ranking the actual stadium than I give it to Bama hands down and maybe Georgia next.

I had a blast at OM but I found the Grove overrated.
Love Athens but they turn it into a disgusting mess on game days.
ATM is cool but there fans are weird as Posted Image.

LSU probably the best game atmosphere I've seen in person

I'm not making that up...your fans were throwing batteries at us as we ran out.  Also had a scuffle between our ball boys and your strength coaches on your sideline.  Our beat writer got punched in the face by an Arkansas staffer and our ops guy that came with Nutt from Arky Coach Beaumont said he had never seen that stadium so hostile.  The atmosphere was decent but it did get pretty loud in the second half.  Beaumont said he had been there 10 years and not heard it as loud as the second half.

I've been to:
Auburn, obviously
UGA
Alabama
GA Tech
Capital One/Citrus Bowl
Papa Johns Bowl

Obviously Jordan-Hare is number one in my mind for a variety of reasons, but I've got to admit that Bama and UGA have nice campuses, as well. Maybe I was biased for Bryant-Denny because I wasn't there for an Auburn game and was undercover in a Julio Falcons jersey, so I didn't get the treatment a normal Auburn fan would get.
