Very nice, always like to see the States College stadiums, I envy the NCAA set up very much.
I've often imagined what stadiums could be used in a Rugby exhibition in the states like England vs France or the southern powers Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Obviously the NFL stadiums could not fit the rugby field in properly without the end zones and the sidelines being under the sightlines. Rugby field are over 20 yards wider than American football fields for those who didn't know (68m wide by 116m to 140m long)

Some college grounds seem big enough though, like the Harvard stadium (cos of the former track) and Jordan Hare Stadium. Only NFL stadium I can think of that could fit a rugby field with satisfactory views would be Dolphin stadium because of it's wide width.

I know its very unlikely given FIFA's current standards but if the USA did ever host a WC again I'd love to see a few of these host matchs(espeically Ohio and Neyland).

amazing.
I couldnt believe collage football was so massive.

I like the one in Athens, Georgia...looks good (and not Im not being bias )

It looks like there are no steps up the tiers which makes it look really really packed I think they all look fantastic.

I've always wondered what kind of view you have from the top of the upper deck at Kyle Field. That has to be an interesting experience as you are like 25-stories up, at least.

It sucks. Trust me. I've sat near the top of the monstrosity behind the endzone, and the brilliant aggie engineers built it so that your sightline is cut off about 2 yards into the endzone. Good thing Texas always kicks their ass, so by the 3rd quarter we can move down to vacted seats closer to civilization.

I don't like college american football stadiums that much. Those stadiums are like European stadiums from '70ies.

Right, except many of these were built in the 1800s to 1940s. Read up on college football and its stadiums/traditions before you make yourself sound like even bigger of an idjit.

Oh, and Euro stadiums of the 70s look abso****inglutely nothing like these. LMAO.

So a comment about a roof is worthy of a reply mocking innocent dead people??? Are you a redneck by any chance?
