Good for college football bad for us I know its a big thing to play in front of 100k fans and you hear it referenced often In reference to our stadium and playing for us...granted Texas A and m kind of recruits a different area then us but now they will have third largest stadium and SEC to Recruit with.
Kyle Field will be the biggest stadium in the SEC, and will somehow be engineered to be even louder than its current setup.

Can't we squeeze in 51 more seats somehow. If airlines can put more seats in the same amount of space, why can't we. Maybe the aeronautical engineering dept. can work on this.
Sounds like a project for Josh Dobbs when he arrives
Bracing for down votes but this notion of a fanny race is misguided. There are empty expanses of aluminum plank seating not just in Knoxville but all over college football. Bama may be the only exception, and they'd be in the same boat if Saban would step on a banana peel.
Nearly every snap of college football is now available on a big flat screen TV in every man cave in America. These stadiums are too crude and too uncomfortable to make any sense at all except maybe against one or two key rivals a year. They built these churches for the Easter crowd. Right in 1980 but wrong in 2013.
We made the same mistake with TBA. Its only design requirement was to have one more seat than Rupp. Well, they did that, and for two decades we had the biggest mess, is what we had. They came to their senses, cut down by 4,000 seats and we now have an arena that puts Kentucky's barn to shame. And it's still big as all hell.
Quality, dammit! Not just quantity.
I completely agree with you. This is not the era where Michigan, OSU, and UT had ongoing build offs and were able to fill those seats. Times are def different now as you stated. But I am glad to see aTm making a commitment to SEC excellence. Nice facilities.
I also agree with the poster that their presence will continue to have an impact on UA and LSU in the recruiting process, which I am ok with for some unknown reason
2013. Team 117. Beginning of the new Era.
Having the largest stadium in the SEC means little to nothing
