    Re: Univ of Tennessee campus ranked one of ugliest in country -- again

    Funny thing, the worst experience I've had in that place involved a Bama fan. An older lady sitting in the box seats up and behind me (I wasn't even really in her direct line of sight) was literally yelling at me to sit down after the 2nd play of the game. I ignored her and stayed standing until the "security guard" or whatever came and told me, "I can't make you sit down, but do the right thing man." Sitting down at a football game is doing the right thing? I never have understood the crowd that wants to go to a live football game and sit and be quiet...

    That rant aside, Neyland is kind of a dump.
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.

    The guy on the far right hand side of the picture is at least 50% responsible for the ugly campus rating.

    Tennessee is so sad at this point it's not even fun making fun of them.

    Couldn't help but post this which is just confirmation of what everyone knew already.
    Is it partially ranked the worst because of the dental problems that most fans have? Tooth, instead of teeth?

    I think that color they use has something to do with the UGLY!

    Counting tickets sold is more honest. I don't know of any other venue that counts the hired help and the athletes.

    You're correct. I just misspoke. We do count tickets sold. We don't count staff and every other living soul in the stadium...

    I did not see the list, but TTU has to be there. The place looks like a penitentiary
    Nice people, though

    Bite your tongue. No matter how low they get, I will always enjoy making fun of the Vols.

    The worst I remember there was when we beat them with Fran. There were a few of us Bama fans scattered around the end zone. It happened that we were sitting near a group of about five or six coeds, who'd been drinking. One of them would turn around at every good thing that happened for Bama or bad for UT and taunt the crowd. Finally, in the second half, the girl had to go to the restroom. A UT matron stood up and refused to let her pass. I thought it was going to develop into a fight. However, the girl turned around and exited the aisle the other way. I sort of held my breath the rest of the game. They had a bunch of security personnel about the size of Junior and Lulu that ringed the field at the end, facing outwards towards the crowd. They really looked grim. Our team didn't want to leave the field. They first went down to the EZ where the band was and then they came up to our end. They must have stayed on the field a good 15-20 minutes, some of them smoking cigars...
