9. Ohio State, Ohio Stadium
Like Michigan, it wasn't mentioned as one of the loudest places despite its size. But in my trips there, it definitely is louder than the Big House and is packed with plenty of atmosphere and goose-bump raising tradition.

This is why ESPN annoys me, they just did another one of these lists this week as well, labeled the toughest places to play IIRC. IIRC it was in the video game section of the site, for some odd reason.

Anyway OSU ranked in at number 2 as the most difficult stadium to play in IIRC, and Florida was number one.

Yeah, they come off as having a whole lot of time on their hands. I think at this point espn.com should adopt the less is more philosphy and at least give you something of interest.

I love how they have USC ranked so high, what an overrated venue.

I have been to a few stadiums and I have to pretty much say they are retarded. I hate ESPN.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

I've only been to about half of those on the list, and there is no way on earth VaTech comes in before the Swamp. It just isn't happening.
