While I agree with you, it is only to an extent. It does take a top 5 team to get TS to is proper level. And that is fine, it speaks to where LSU is as a program.
The problem with an assinine statement like this is that TS was never anything but what it is now. 1950, 1965, 1985, 1995, doesn't matter. Tiger Stadium is the tits when Bama, Auburn, Tenn, Florida come.
When LSU plays a crap opponent, its not the same. So what, it has always been that way. Do you really think the atmosphere of the Towson game was really all that different than when we were beating Baylor by 60 in 1962? That NOBODY left that game early at all?
I would stand to argue that the stadium wasn't exactly "rockin" in the fourth quarter of that game either.
Everybody has revisionist attitudes. It's just you retards have a place to voice them now, where as previously we would have just told you to stop talking back to your mom and go back to the basement.
Every big venue has this issue. Awesome for big games, not as awesome for the whatever games. You think Yankee Stadium really gets up for an May midweek game versus the Royals?
Tiger Stadium for a big game is unlike anywhere I've ever been. BY FAR. I tell people I see for work all the time exactly what SVP said, "Go to a big game at LSU, then come talk to me."
It's something that can't be explained, only experienced.
Good Work Tiger Fans.
