    Lavell Edwards comes in at no. 20, okay cool, but then Albertson's parking lot BSU garbage smurf turf stadium is no. 17? Ahead of Camp Randall and Nebraska's Memorial Stadium?

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

      In addition to the Smurf Turf travesty, Colorado's Folsom Field is not deserving of being ranked. Boulder is a fun town, but it is not a football town and its fans are among the worst in college football. BYU is the obvious choice if one wants to attend a football game with a mountainous backdrop - cannot think of any other reason why Folsom would make that list other than its mountains. If I had to pick an alternate mountainous setting for college football other than Provo, I'd rather watch a game in Rice Eccles than in Folsom Field...and that's saying something.

        U of Colorado still has a football program?

          I do kind of laugh when people list RES as having a great backdrop. You mean those glorified foothills up the street? Then they post a photo of the stadium with camera trickery that makes Mt Olympus look like it's a mile away.

            Well, Mt. Olympus is probably 27 miles away. Mt. Timpanogos is much closer to LES though.

              According to google maps, Mt Olympus is about 9 miles from RES, while Timp is about 12 miles from LES (as the crow flies).

                Mountain smack. Nothing is too petty for us to argue over.

                  How about the block letters on the mountain? Ours is bigger.

                      There's no way Timp is further away than Mt. Olympus.

                      Edit. Now I see that Sully was talking about RES, which didn't even make the top 20 best stadium environments in the nation!

                        Yeah, I misread USUC's post and thought he was talking about LES, not RES and had made a mistake in the name of the mountain. Sorry, USUC - I was dumb.

                          No, the only dummies are the people that think RES has a beautiful backdrop. Maybe if you are sitting in the northwest corner and look put to the greener mountains in the distance to the south. But otherwise you are looking at brown weed covered foothills with the occasional oak brush.
