[quote]why did they not make the south endzone the same as the north endzone in 1953? It would have looked so much nicer[/quote]
Had it mirrored the North upper, the seats in the new South upperdeck would be worse and even further from the field. So I think it worked out well in the long run. A...

With South Carolina, LSU, and Vandy's recent titles, coupled with Mississippi State and Florida making it to the championship series, I think the ...
