Never posted before but I'm curious what other people think. Wisconsin hail mary or last night. I was at both but can't decide which had a better atmosphere.
Little Giants was louder than Wisky hail mary.
Don't think -- it can only hurt the ballclub
I think it's a matter of duration. The explosion of cheering at the UW game was probably louder, but the cheering last night was almost nonstop (at least from my viewpoint watching on TV) so even if it was less loud, it was going on for a couple of hours.
Does anyone remember the Wisconsin half time standing ovation? That was fucking awesome.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
Yes! We had so much mojo going into the locker room following 23 unanswered points in the 2nd quarter. Blocked field goal, block punt for a TD, BJ and Keyshawn breaking loose for TDs...Dope.
With that said, last night was fucking awesome! Spartans let the nation know we are a legit title contender! Go Green!
I watched Tennessee at Vandy tonight and it felt like I was at a high school game between Avondale and Center Line. tBres was even more impressive after tonight. I do not recall many games that seemed that energized on TV.
75,000 > 15,000

This too. Wisconsin was kind of a delayed reaction but Little Giants..nuts
When State blocked the punt right before half, you could make an argument that was one of the loudest moments in SS history, the place was literally shaking. Same for end of game and little giants---for sustained period, I still say that UCONN in 2000 was the loudest I have ever heard Breslin for a sustained period of time, but last night was damn close.
By pure decibels, I really don't think a Michigan State sporting event will ever be louder than the Hail Mary against Wisconsin.
HOWEVER, I have to give the noise prop to the game last night. It was as loud as tBreslin gets, and it stayed that loud for most of the game.
the breslin is definitely louder...the open air stadium doesn't come close to matching the noise of the breslin.
Open air vs enclosed structure will always mean if you put a decibel meter in the middle of the court/field the closed stadium will be louder.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
I don't know about that. I've never heard SS go from a tense silence to bedlam like when they announced the hail mary was a TD. If you meant the play itself, then that's a different story.
Gotta agree with this....... Also, what about Ford Field 2009 vs Uconn? That was pretty insane as well..... I know tourney vs regular season game, but still...

I will never attend a better sporting event than that Wisky game and I've been to quite a few including the "Doug Flutie game,"
It was a dead silence waiting to hear what the ref said. As soon as he said "The ball broke ......."
That place went absolutely ape shit.
Good point. That said, can 15,000 inside, where sound can't escape, be louder than 75,000 outside, where sound does escape.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
Agree but I think it was "the runner did-"
You are correct.
quite possibly my favorite video of all time. +1
lFor shear amplitude and contrast, the hail mary was the loudest. Went from 75k people able to hear a pin drop to an instaneous ROAR. From a sustained basis, Tues nite was tops as it was CONTINOUS and enclosed. So, the OPs original question a bit unanswerable...but great that I could experience such events. My buddies from Ohio who were at the UW game still claim it was one of the best and loudest events they have ever attended.
The ref's "turn and sprint" for the tunnel is classic.
I say hail Mary was louder. It had an instantaneous "on" moment when the ref announced the td. Little giants took place over a longer period of time. Some people recognized what was happening a little earlier than others, leading to a spattered response. The initial spike of the hail Mary can't be beat.
