The list looks very reasonable. Clemson, FSU, VT and Louisville go 1, 2, 3, 4. Duke is last.

I haven't been to Husky Stadium but I know people who have while serving in the Navy and they say it is loud because of the design of the stadium. Death Valley is much the same except that in addition to the design there's also 82k making noise.

As for how many Death Valleys there are.....in reality just two. The National Monument in California and the one in Clemson. Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge used to be known as Deaf Valley way back when but it morphed.

Quote:Both LSU and Clemson lay claim to the “real Death Valley,” with Clemson coach Dabo Swinney recently saying in a news conference his university’s stadium was the original in a response to South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier’s jab at which Death Valley was the real one.

“For the record, the original Death Valley is right here,” Swinney said, pointing to the stadium behind him. “In case anybody has any doubts, it’s right here. That’s the original Death Valley. I am pretty sure that is accurate, but I can see where [Spurrier] might have a little confusion.”

LSU fans may be surprised to find out that Swinney is technically right — despite Tiger Stadium being built almost 20 years prior to Clemson’s Memorial Stadium.

As the story goes, Memorial Stadium’s nickname began in the early 1950s from the cemetery that was perched on the adjacent hill overlooking the field.

The name was solidified in the early 1960s when former Clemson coach Frank Howard received what came to be known as “Howard’s Rock” from an alumnus who had plucked it from the sands of California’s Death Valley.

One local legend suggests that a few years later, LSU began to refer to Tiger Stadium as “Deaf Valley” as a way to differentiate between the Tigers of Clemson, but eventually shifted into “Death Valley” after sports writers and opposing fans from other parts of the country confused the thick Southern accent locals used.

The article isn't totally on the mark as Memorial Stadium got the name from Presbyterian coach Lonnie McMillan in the late 1940's he talked about bring his team to lose in "Death Valley". McMillan went 1-12 against Clemson from 1941-1953 with the only win coming in 1943 when most of the Clemson student body was at war (Clemson was still a military school at the time). Clemson outscored PC 592-71 in those 13 games.

The Rock didn't come around until the 1960's and the only reason someone toted a rock from Death Valley, CA to Clemson was because the stadium was known as Death Valley.
