Neyland Stadium: 'like standing next to the starting line at a drag race...for four hours'

Long time, no see, y'all...

Over at Gerogia Sports Blog, Paul Westerdawg has an interview with former UGa All-American o-lineman Matt Stinchcomb that would be of absolutely no interest to a Tennessee fan if not for the following part of the Q&A:

PWD: What was the worst or toughest place to play?
MS: Tennessee is a really tough place to play as an opponent. I think fans in general don't realize the impact they have on the game, but the fans in Knoxville know their role. Everything at Neyland is enclosed, and you feel like you're inside a tin can. The crowd noise is like standing next to the starting line at a drag race...for four hours. It's painfully, oppressively loud. The only place I played as loud as Neyland Stadium was the Metrodome in Minnesota, and that place has a roof to keep the sound in.

Now if we could just get the whole stadium to make noise... oh, and that double-wave thingy that Joel was talking about, that would be sweet.
