    The Patriot League is tough

    For a big game I think Lehigh has the best atmosphere and it's really not close imo.

    Colgate is easily the toughest place to play the last 4 weeks of the year due to the weather in Hamilton, NY. Otherwise, there's nothing really intimidating about Andy Kerr Stadium.

    For this Big Sky guy, you always have to be concerned about Montana. Big, rude crowd is a given. But the altitude at Flagstaff, NAU, screws things up on a couple of fronts:1) its harder to catch a breath, 2) punt, kickoff and field goals are all out of scale. The ball flys forever at that altitude and in a dome.

    Apparently Rhodes Stadium. We've only won 2 conference games there in 5 years...

    Also, at Colgate the visiting stands can get very lonely because you can't get to Hamilton, NY from ... anywhere.

    Re: Toughest place to play in your conference?

    Several schools in The SWAC have great game day atmospheres but the hardest place to go get a win would be Robinson Stadium home of Grambling State. From 1999-2011 Grambling only loss 8 home games. They were a train wreck in 2012 and 2013 but since then they've only lost twice at home(Alabama State 2014, Bethune Cookman 2015). Grambling has some pretty rowdy fans that make Robinson Stadium hell on opponents. The GSU chant right after the team enters the field is electric to say the least.

    In the NSIC I would say UMD. Two national titles, some long playoff runs, pretty good crowds and atmosphere, and Arctic tundra cold in the post season.

    Re: Toughest place to play in your conference?

    Estes Stadium. Conway.

    1. The field. Slick and purple/gray striped. Ask the conference foes and teams like Illinois State. tough on the eyes and feet.

    2. The team. Home record since being full division I in 2010? 32-6. Tough to win there.

    3. The size. 9,000 seats. When full the student section is right on top of the visiting team with microphone/speakers blasting. (wish that side would fill up more)

    4. The food. Pathetic. $2 hot dogs that are NASTY. Seriously. Nasty. $3 cokes..warm.

    5. Visiting locker room. If you wanna call it that. Not really. Sucks.

    I could go on and on. Thank goodness for on field success.
