No. 4: Fans don’t care at UGA and Sanford Stadium is too quiet

This one is completely false.

Don’t care? Quiet? Well, maybe if you pick up a ticket on StubHub to see the Dawgs play Coastal Carolina or Charleston Southern you might get that impression. Same holds true in Tuscaloosa (and Nick Saban even called his own fans out for it).

Sanford Stadium can be just as deafening as any other in the nation, even more so. There are so many times I’ve been there that I have to communicate to the person next to me using hand gestures and simian grunts because vocalization simply isn’t going to be possible.

People who believe this myth believe that “announced attendance” figures are actually a count of real people too.
