    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.

    Impressive!

    Re: Toughest place to play in your conference?

    The UNI-Dome can get pretty loud especially now that the last few matchups against NDSU have been well attended. The Fargodome is the loudest place in the conference, but Montana is the loudest FCS stadium I've seen.

    On the flip side, I think our guys kind of seam a little out of their element when we play say Indiana State or WIU and there's very few people there and generally it's about as loud as a golf course.

    Re: Toughest place to play in your conference?

    Depends what time of year. We dont have stadiums that are that loud. Liberty when its full is kinda loud.

    Id say in early season its CSU because of the heat and humidity. Its crippling if you arent ready for it. Seen teams from VA and "norther" crumble in some 2nd half games. Late in season Monmouth if its cold. Obviously over the years LU and CCU because they've been so good.

    But as far as atmosphere, nowhere really. The early season heat down here is about the only issue.

    Since we've played so many SoCon teams Ill say The Citadel in SoCon. Especially early season because just like CSU its very hot and humid. They fire cannons off and the cadets are quite good and harrassing you haha. Not an easy place to win.
    Yeah our stadium is a dump. But your mama has season tickets.

    JSU

    37-7 since the renovation in 2010.

    Pretty sure our average attendance is double that of the second best team in the conference as well.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    The Reservation down at Alcorn State has been a difficult place to win for teams in the Eastern Division of the SWAC. The haven't lost a divisional game at home since 2014, and they've only lost 4 conference games at home since 2013. Great atmosphere down there in rural Mississippi.

    Not quite double but you have a nice gap between you guys and Tennessee State

    In the final NCAA attendance rankings, Jacksonville State was seventh among all FCS teams with a home average of 17,576 (Montana was first at 25,377). Tennessee State finished 14th in attendance at 13,778.

    Alcorn is always tough for us particularly early in the season when its still hot they like to play during the day, everyone else will play in the evening
