Having the home team do it was a great idea, but the Pac-12 Conference screwed up the SDS execution by insisting that it was treated as a neutral site.
They should've made the game a true home game for the higher ranked/rated team. Instead, I walked into a game where there was a 50/50 game in terms of noise/sound, etc. It was all wrong, vibe-wise. I wonder if that even bothered the players a bit... Let the home team have the home field advantage that they earned.
IMO, if the Pac-12 is going to insist on having a "neutral" site, it's better off in their current stadium. No, it'll never be close to full - but it won't be the awkward, Twilight Zone mess that was 2013.
