Scroll down just a bit, unless you care about the Big Ten. So I guess my expectations have just been skewed for this crowd by the Cotton Bowl, or perhaps my seats last year (South End Zone was crazy, ya'll!). I guess I'll sign on for now to the idea that I'm perceiving a lack of noise due to my location (The NEZ is more likely designed to direct noise onto the field, not into the student section). The truth is, though, my eyes didn't lie, and there was an obvious line of demarcation between the student section and the regular seating when it comes to standing, throwing up the 'Horns during Texas Fight, etc. If the current atmosphere is good by national standards, then it will always irk me that it isn't great when there are obvious gaps in the enthusiasm.
