Default Odd "psychology question" about home field advantage.

Everyone knows about home field advantage and how it helps to have screaming fans on your side.

But what if no opposing teams fans were let in to the stadium?

What if it really was 85,000 Gamecock ONLY fans? Or 90,000 LSU ONLY fans for their home games?

I don't have any proof, but I really believe that would have a tremendous psychological impact on the opposing team. Much more so than the way it works now. Over the course of a game, I believe it would cause the opponent to "crack." Imagine having every damn person in the stadium against you for four hours? No cheers AT ALL when you make a good play.

I know it will never happen, but it would be interesting to see.

that would be nuts!

There are some soccer stadiums in South America and Europe that have that feel. Despite having sections for visiting fans, they are too worried about causing violence to cheer, so they sit quietly and watch rather than attempt to show up the home fans.

I think eventually people would get used to it, but man if it happened just once or twice in an 80,000+ stadium I bet the effect would be unreal.

It sort of happens now if you consider the officials. Usually everyone in the stadium hates them at some point during a game, regardless of which team they're pulling for. The psychological effect peaked for one in particular during our bowl game against Michigan. He was seeing first down markers that weren't there.
