Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium ranks 4th among the football stadiums in the SEC West. This is just my opinion. Truth be told, this is a hard ranking, because I would actually consider this not only one of the best stadiums in the SEC but one of the best college football stadiums that I have been to. I would even go so far as to say that it is better than some NFL stadiums (Oakland, Jacksonville, San Francisco, and Minnesota come to mind). The problem is that the other stadiums ahead of Razorback Stadium are that much better.
The passion of he Hog fans definitely rivals that of a lot of fanbases, all the way down to FOIA’s. I mean seriously, would Middle Tennessee State University fans file legal documents to see the text messages of the local hot reporter that he is banging friends with???
The one thing that I really do not understand about Razorback Stadium is that Arkansas also plays games in Little Rock at War Mmorial. Certainly I understand the historical relevance of the field, but if Razorback Stadium is so much nicer, why continue to play there??? It will be just another second home to Bobby Petrino until he packs his carpet bag and heads elsewhere (Notre Dame anyone)???
The sounds of pig sooie, coupled with great BBQ, friendly people, and passion not seen in the Big 10, gives Arkansas good, almost great. Too bad the stadium wasn’t built on the backs of human trafficking (hint to #3)…
So to recap so far:
SEC West Stadiums:
4. Arkansas (Wade Davis Stadium)
