The common nickname of University of Michigan's football stadium. At one point, it was the largest football stadium in the country, however it is now the second largest due to renovations. Now, Penn State's Beaver Stadium is indefinitely the largest football stadium in America.
Fan 1: "Hey, I can't wait for the Michigan game this weekend in Ann Arbor. I love being part of the nation's largest crowd watching a football game in The Big House!"
Fan 2: "Umm, actually we won't be the largest crowd this weekend. Penn State's stadium is bigger than ours now."

1. "My weekend was horrible. I was surrounded by over 100,000 pompous assholes."

"Why the fuck would you go to the Big House?!?"

2. "Wow, it must've been pretty embarrassing to be a Wolverine fan in the Big House after that latest loss."

"Yeah. Who are the Rockets again?"
