Ranking of the top 25 toughest places to play college football. The ONLY fcs team on the list. Once our basketball arena is done that will be on the basketball list.

Who is that listed right between the Washington Huskies and the Oregon Ducks? That'r right! You guessed it - it's Stony Brooks own ------

22. Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium, New York: Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium is the largest outdoor facility in Suffolk County, and it is usually filled to capacity on football gamedays. The Stony Brook Seawolves instantly became Long Island's top-drawing football team when Hofstra dropped football from its program in 2008.

Seems like our teams the past several months cannot avoid rubbing elbows with the SEC and Big East, Big Ten's and Pac 12's of the world. Any way you want to spin it we are BIG TIME BABY! With a capital B!

That is an impressive list of schools considering most of them are SEC ACC and Big 10, but considering the source who came up with the list a self admitted life time Stony Brook fan I would take it with a grain of salt. But regardless still nice to mentioned with the big boys.

LOL...I was looking at the article, the list, everything and I was thinking this doesn't make a whole lot of sense...until you see who the auther is:

Eric Holden, a Long Island resident, is a lifelong Stony Brook Seawolves football fan. Follow him on Twitter @ericholden.

Now it makes sense...he's on the "yahoo contributor network"...which basically any of us can be on if we so desire.

Pretty sure the atmospheres at Texas, Nebraska, USC, Arkansas, etc may also be better than Stony Brook, but hey, who knows...LOL.

It's an 8,000 seat stadium... come on now - it's nowhere near in the same realm of atmosphere, intimidation, or feeling of the others. There are FCS schools who fill stadiums that seat 25,000 and more; that are far more deserving of inclusion than this homer did for Stony Brook.

I was reading the article yesterday. I was in disbelief. I was like what the hell is this psycho doing placing Stony Brook #22... After reading the last sentence I was like OK, NOW IT makes sense. But it still embarrassing to make up such a list knowing that SBU is far from being in the top 25 stadiums
