When you talk about college football, most people think of tradition, tailgating, and environment. Each fan base will testify and say their stadium is the best, and I’ll come right out and say it: Neyland Stadium is the best of the best.
I can hear it now: 102,455 fans screaming Rocky Top — sorry, got sidetracked.
Anyway, that’s not what I’m here for today. I’m here to talk about the worst stadiums in the SEC:
Dudley Field (Vanderbilt)
The Commodores (little brother) are not known for being a great football school anyway. Vanderbilt’s stadium is a total reflection of how sorry they are.
Dudley Field’s capacity is roughly 40,000, but maybe only 10,000 “fans” actually show. Also, Dudley Field is the smallest stadium in the SEC, which proves just how bad the football team is.
The stadium also models a high school field with hardly any chair backs. And honestly, most fans don’t make it past the second quarter without ducking out anyway.
Kroger Field (Kentucky)
I’m just going to say it: who names a stadium after a grocery store? I mean, do you pick up milk and eggs during the blowouts, or is the university so desperate for money since they can’t fill the stands?
Kroger Field holds nearly 60,000, which is toward the bottom of the SEC. We haven’t even talked about the concrete jungle (parking lot) surrounding the stadium.
To me, that resembles a real Kroger: a huge parking lot and overpriced products.
Bryant Denny Stadium (Alabama)
Most of you guys are probably questioning why the Crimson Tide is on this list. No, it’s not because as a Tennessee fan, I hate those cousin-loving, tobacco chewing women, and no teeth fans of Alabama.
I know Bryant Denny holds 101,000 people, and the stadium is typically full, but after the first quarter, everyone leaves.
Not to mention that “fun” light show they tried to incorporate during the latter part of last year.
Also, they sing “Dixieland Delight,” which is about the state of Tennessee. If you ask any opposing fan base that walks into the stadium, they’ll tell you it’s outdated, and you’ve got a high chance of getting something thrown at you.
This list not only reflects trashy stadiums but trashy SEC teams. I just want you to know if your stadium and fan base suck, I’m going to talk about it. I hereby want to inform you again, Neyland Stadium is the best, and you’re opinion otherwise is wrong! GBO!
