    I love the homefield advantage approach that they are taking here. I love the fact that they are finally understanding the importance of home field in a college game.

    thanks for the links...the IGN article said NCAA ranked the top 25 toughest stadiums to play at with Tennessee being the most difficult with some insights on to how they ranked them... QUOTE
    "The size and subsequent intensity of the crowd is limited by the size of the stadium so that 100,000+ screaming Wolverine fans in Ann Arbor will be louder and more disruptive to the visiting Buckeye players than a full house (90,000) at the Rose Bowl even if it's USC versus UCLA."
    Soooo are they basing this advantage primarly on size then? There is no way Tennessee is louder then a place like LSU...and I wonder where OSU will be on that list. I hope they don't screw this feature up, its a cool idea...lets hope they get it right

    The Pig House never has 100,000+ screaming Wolverine fans...

    It's the eerie silence that is intimidating. Well, that, and the idea of being surrounded by so 100,000 idiots and jackasses.

    I don't know what the hell they are talking about with the Pig House. With all the Blue Hairs that hang in that stadium you'd think that you were attending a "Golden Girls" autograph signing.
