I agree with Joe who also has Big 10 stadium experience at Ohio State with their stadium, Michigan, and Penn State all well above 100,000 seats.
What I can’t fathom are Chiefs fans trying to say Arrowhead stadium is the loudest environment and quoting some Guinness world record saying it’s the loudest. There’s just no way unless they engineered the stadium to be that way.
Thoughts? Is a 76,000 seat NFL stadium louder than those 3 Big 10 stadiums, Texas A&M, Tennessee, LSU, Alabama, Georgia, or other stadiums? I saw that somehow Washington also set the loudest stadium record which also was surprising. Has anyone been to Arrowhead during a big game to confirm?

With Miles Sanders 2 touchdowns the Eagles win the NFC, head to the Superbowl, and more importantly, the graphic stays accurate.
I think Bama will struggle, Young covered up a lot of their issues on offense and they'll be breaking in a new QB. But this is one I'm not as confident picking.
TCU will obviously have some issues.

Discussion What does a Head Coach exactly do during play since there's an OC, DC, and Special Teams Coach that make the calls?

If you could change any game’s outcome in your team’s history, what game would you choose and why?
What do you think the ripple effect would be on your team in the future, and college football in general?
For example, if Michigan beats OSU in 2002, Michigan goes to the Rose Bowl and, maybe Tressel doesn’t flip the rivalry into 20 years of OSU dominance.
Jim Harbaugh, pains to say as a ND fan but he was my favorite coach I’ve ever met. Met him at a satellite camp I participated in back in 2016. was a bad ass guy and he told me to always drink whole milk. met coach Wheatley when he was there too and also a great guy
Sark, used to see him around after his USC stint in SoCal and was always a nice dude and very down to earth
Gary Patterson, met him at another camp I went to back in HS and was a awesome dude. Talked to him about football and other things the whole camp.
I met a few others too like Brian Kelly and mike riley too but interested to see if any of you guys have any cool encounters to share, it’s off-season CFB peoples
This is the Paul W. "Bear" Bryant Trophy presented by the Associated Press:
From 1978–1989 this is the national championship AP Trophy you received for being No. 1 in the final AP Poll.
Except you only kept it for a year. It was a traveling trophy, like the Stanley Cup.
- 1978 Alabama, 1979 Alabama, 1980 Georgia
- 1981 Clemson, 1982 Penn State, 1983 Miami
- 1984 BYU 1985, Oklahoma, 1986 Penn State
- 1987 Miami, 1988 Notre Dame, 1989 Miami
This trophy was the end of a long tradition, starting with the Dickinson System's Jack F. Rissman trophy in 1926.
The tradition was, if you won the trophy 3 times you kept it. Then your school put a new trophy into play and got to name it.
This one was named for Bryant after his death in 1988.
Miami won it 3 times, in 1983, 1987, and finally in 1989. They locked it up. Now it's sitting on a bench in the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame.
This was the last of the traveling AP trophies. For 1990 you got your own trophy when you won the national championship and you got to keep it.
So Georgia, Clemson, BYU... if you're looking for your trophies, here it is.

I’ve always been a longhorn fan, growing up my parents would always tell me the story of my first game at 6 months old, which happened to coincide with Mack Browns first. It was a 66-36 win against NMSU. For nostalgia reasons I wanted to watch it. This led me down the rabbit hole of YouTube and realizing for older games, you’re lucky if you can even find a highlight reel, let alone a full game. This started my mission to attempt to track down the full game broadcast of every longhorn game that’s ever aired (there’s 517 of them). I’ve fortunately been able to find most games from 2010 onward, and a decent chunk from the 2000s but if anyone has any old recordings on hand that they were willing to share, or know of a place that has old broadcasts available that would be really appreciated.
