As much as I hate to admit it, the Big House is extremely impressive, too. I would actually put it over Notre Dame in terms of the overall experience (albeit that's probably because Ann Arbor is an incredible college town compared to South Bend despite Notre Dame's beautiful campus). I haven't been to the Shoe.

With the Rose Bowl its the setting, the parties before, the feel of the event. Sight lines are not that great. But its just a great environment.

Yeah, I go for all that stuff, as well. The attraction of attending games for me, even Memphis games, is much more about the experience, than it is the final score.

It's just difficult to know that in advance, unless you talk to those who have been there before.


ND Stadium has undergone significant changes and additions since you were probably there, with Field Turf, a Jumbotron, luxury boxes and a $450 million dollar expansion with classrooms.

Those pictures remind me a lot of what Florida State did with Doak Campbell Stadium in the 90's. The buildings that surround DC also have classrooms, convention space, etc.

Correct. ND spent $450 million on those classroom buildings, the Jumbotron, luxury boxes, another press box, etc...

Rutgers 1-3 games a year. Have watched Rutgers and Army play in Yankee Stadium too.

South Carolina - 1 trip annually.
Mix in a Temple, FCS Lafayette, FCS Lehigh game now and then.
One Pro Game a year cycling through the Eagles, Giants, Jets, and Ravens.

Have also been to a Navy home game. Great game day experience.
Kutztown University - Home of DA Bears

Would like to get to:
Army
Maryland
UConn
Penn State

Also have been in stadiums (not during a football game) while checking schools out for my son at Virginia, VT, and NC ST. I wouldn't mind trying to get a game day experience there also. 04-cheers

Interesting. What's the connection?
