I marched in the Drum Corps International World Championship Finals in this stadium in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1992 in this stadium! Lots of great memories and a fantastic stadium!

I go passed this place all the time, and I'll be at a game here tomorrow. I absolutely love this stadium. The atmosphere is so incredible.

Of course, I'm a bit biased in my judgment of the stadium, since I'm a badger fan and live in Madison.

I am a fan of the rival Minnesota Gophers but nobody can deny the wonderful gameday atmosphere at Camp Randall
Quite true, the atmosphere is hard to beat. I'll be at the Gopher game next weekend, by the way. I'm looking forward to seeing your new stadium.

LOL, that was cool! Thanks for showing this as because I've never seen the jump around. Watching the games on tv they never show it, or at least not all the way through, but always talk about how it's a great Camp Randall tradition.

Here's another Youtube vid that shows some Ohio State players doing the jump around along with the crowd.

From reading around earlier today to get more details on the hockey games at Ford Field, I found out for the first time that a pair of hockey games were outside at this stadium in February. They drew around 55,000.

I used to live in the Midwest so a few times I was at this stadium, but this was when I was a young kid, i.e. many years ago. Even back then I enjoyed the stadium and the young college crowd was pretty crazy.
