The only one besides LSU, I can think off is Florida State. I'm not sure the story behind LSU's, but I know for Florida State that it was a good luck tradition for the team to run under the old H shaped goalposts when entering the stadium, so FSU petitioned the NCAA to allow them to have the modern double uprights.yeah, and i believe only four colleges still use that style, but im not positive
I don't think thats true but I don't have an answer for it eitherSomeone once told me that LSU had the double uprights because it was much harder for the students to tear down, but I have a feeling that's more of a urban legend.
yea thats what it was originally but people mistook it for "death valley" and that stuckAlso referred to as "deaf valley"
here is a pic I got from a poster on TigerDroppings.com of the enclosed upper deck. I would say the capacity in this pic is about 115,000.What about capacity if the upper deck will be complete?
college stadiums arent built all at once, it took years for the big ones to get where they are now. You build when you can afford it. Asthetics arent important in college, and likely never will be. The point is to fit as many people in as possible, however that may be. Remember, this is not a professional sport, people dont go for the amenities, they go to see the team play and thats it. No one really cares what the stadium looks like. When your goal is to jam a whole bunch of people in, do aesthetics matter?I don't understand why Americans fail to show in American football stadiums the aesthetics that they show in baseball park. Nearly all of American football stadiums are mere concrete monsters to me with the exception of few recently built. No offense but seriously they remind me of American junk food not sporting venue. They are all just big, big, big, big, big, big, big and that's all I feel. There is nothing more than that in American football stadiums. Nothing impressive and nothing aesthetic ever indeed! Where were your architects in building those stadiums? Did they construct the stadiums without architects to save designing cost? Beyond being not understandable, they are even a mistery to me.
