    Two other overrated stadiums on the list: Kyle Field and Husky Stadium.

    Kyle Field, to me, is just straight up ugly. Just a large erector set; it does blend in nicely though with A&M’s Soviet style campus architecture.

    UW’s Husky Stadium has a gorgeous setting, no doubt. But the stadium design is just too weird and too open to me. It’s amazing it retains as much sound as it does with the big east opening. Also, any stadium that has a corporate sponsor in its name is lame (i.e. Alaska Airlines Field).

    Was it the Dec 1, 1984 game (UF 27, FSU 17)? That's the only time I was inside that stadium --- my sister was a student there and invited me --- and the rain was overwhelming. An absolute monsoon, umbrellas & ponchos were completely useless. Even with the Gators winning, I just wanted to leave and get somewhere dry.

    This article is a joke. How can you leave out Jordan Hare? No, I do not like Auburn, and I, like many here, can pretty much recall play by play off the top of my head for 2 horror stories up there (1989 and 1993). That venue up there has mystique.

    2001 was another horror story. Agreed, that place has something going on.
