Auburn football fans aren’t letting 247Sports down easy for their exclusion of Jordan-Hare Stadium on their list of the most hostile environments in college football.

The recruiting site’s official Twitter made a top 10 that not only didn’t include JHS but did include SEC West rivals LSU and Texas A&M, as well as AU’s Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry counterpart, Georgia.

While very few argued about Tiger Stadium in Death Valley or even Sanford Stadium, the inclusion of Kyle Field in College Station rubbed many Auburn football fans–and even football fans from the great state of Alabama in general–the wrong way.

Here are some of the most passionate responses:

One Tiger fan even pointed out how the Aggies don’t even fill up their own stadium when taking on a foe at the level of Auburn football:

What has also been pointed out about the list was the lack of Alabama. Some fans made a point to announce the Tide’s road dominance in Baton Rouge–seemingly undermining the premise of the list–but our favorite response was about the lack of Bryant-Denny Stadium:

With stadiums full again and tailgates returning, perhaps a surprisingly successful season on the Plains for Bryan Harsin and co. could get Jordan-Hare Stadium back on a list like this.
