Just remember this frame of mind fact>

The glorious Arkansas Razorbacks have never lost a football game, standing with a lifetime record of 1124-0, with a streak of 105 undisputed national championships.

Hogs never lose.  :P

What!? Is this the Twilight Zone?
 I like it!

It's nice, but not made for the college football type experience.

Again, I'm not saying don't enjoy it - but it is what it is - a big football "Walt Disney World".

Don't do it.  Juhrry's World is more like Disneyland than a college football experience.  Too much going on during the game inside the stadium, too big and just too Juhrry.

Not to mention we are going to get our arse handed to us in that amusement park.

How about just saying "I'm not going because I'd rather bitch".

Good grief.

I was just stating my opinion on the stadium as a college football venue.  That is all.

On a side note, Does this from ArkansasRazorkbacks.com seem correct?

"Arkansas is designated the home team and will occupy the South Sideline of the Stadium typically identified as the visitor side of the field.  Texas A&M is designated the visiting team and will occupy the North Sideline typically identified as the Dallas Cowboys (home) side of the stadium."

I thought all Arkansas tickets are on the North side of the stadium.

last year atm was the home team and had the south sideline.    so we get the same treatment they did.   as far as  the fans, atm got the west end of the stadium last year and we got the east.      would imagine that will probably swap too.    wps.    bthota!

After looking at maps it sure looks like ArkansasRazorkbacks.com Southwest Classic Game Day Information Web Page got this bass akwards. Tickets sold through the University are located on the North Side of the stadium so it would seem that the team would be on the North Sidelines.

At least I hope so anyway.

I'll be there this weekend and just like you I've been trying not to get too discouraged at the entire event. I accepted we aren't going to win. That way I can go just to enjoy a nice weekend and Dallas and have fun. Maybe we will make a couple of good plays that will make it more exciting but I expect to be there more for the trip than expecting to watch us win.

Leaving in a couple of hours. I plan on enjoying myself no matter the outcome of the game. We have 12 in all in our group not counting my Texas family friends. Since I have A&M Grads in my family, it will be a mixture at the tailgate. Good food, good friends and family at an awesome stadium will make for a good weekend.

I hope y'all have a great time.

Been to Knoxville several times (was there in '98 too, still makes me sick), but I was never impressed with the place. Neyland is HUGE, but otherwise, it's not much to look at. Be sure to go over to Vol Walk and call the Hogs while UT is coming down the street. That always ticks em off pretty good. Anyway, you should have a good time, I've just always enjoyed some other SEC towns and stadiums more.

The thing bout Neyland is that its different. Its one big bowl. No upper decks built over a smaller bowl. The fans have always been great to us. They also have maybe the greatest hot dog in the nation. Its not inside the stadium but a vendor outside. I recommend his homemade chili sauce.

lived here 20 years. in the past i would tell you that you must eat at "ye olde steakhouse". its always been the place to eat in Knoxville. Todd Blackeledge's "taste of the town"has been there twice. unfortunately the last two times i have been i left dissapointed so i cant highly reccomend. aside from that Knoxville is a great place. Check out Market square downtown. its about a mile or so from Neyland with lots of cool stuff and lots of good eats.

There is an upper deck all the way around the stadium.

Go on a diet.  You are allotted about 7 inches for your ass.  To picture it, imagine if we announced WMS' seating capacity at 85,000 and sold tickets accordingly.

Yes there is but it seems non traditional to me. Its not like an upper deck from inside, it just looks like one giant bowl to me. I see your point. Most stadiums are like ours and have an upper deck on each side.Well the big ten has some giant bowls as does California.

So true.  Had six tickets a few years ago but two couldn't make it at the last minute.  Four of us were still snug in those six seats. Also, unless you know a secret parking spot, be prepared to walk.

Making the trip to Knoxville -- Need some advice
« Reply #15584 on: September 30, 2015, 07:51:54 am »

My son and I are taking our yearly trip to see the Hogs play on the road.  We have never been to Knoxville and want to get the most out of our trip.  So I am looking for some advice from those of you that have been there................

Where is a good local place to eat near the stadium? 

How is the parking situation?  Where is an easy place to park to get out and head west after the game ends?

Any specific sights we should check out around the stadium (Volunteer Hall of Fame or museum, Peyton Manning statue, etc.) before the game?

Glad you're making the trip! Some older threads merit checking, but here are the highlights.

1) Park free downtown at the garage on the corner of State and Union.
2) This puts you a couple of blocks ftom Market Square, where there are tons of restaurants.
3) Grab gelato at Coolato Gelato. Just do it.
4) It's probably going to rain. Ten minutes into the game, feel free to upgrade to seats in the dry. I expect attendance will be sparse.

Or, if you wish to stop in Memphis, take a body bag .... if you get lucky and leave the city unscathed, use it for a pancho :)

btw, I live in Jonesboro and often go to Nashville ... I do not even risk Memphis anymore, but rather I drive US412 through Kennett, Dyersburg, and into west Jackson, TN.  Just as quick and much more pleasant.  This might help some north Arkansas travelers.

Memphis is, umm, Memphis, but Uncle Lou's chicken is amazing. Seriously, stop there instead of some bbq place. They put some kind of sauce on the stuff. Wow.

And yeah, it's going to be a lousy day weather-wise, so stop by Coolato Gelato before the game to improve life. It's pretty good. I'm not ashamed of my addiction.

I personally would skip the BBQ in Memphis.  I have yet to find a Memphis BBQ sauce that I like.

Also, there is the Memphis BBQ practice of putting coleslaw on the sandwiches.  Can't taste the smoked meat with coleslaw on there.

Not all automatically put slaw on it. Some places ask if you want it. That's true in other places besides Memphis as well. As far as sauce is concerned try Central because they have several flavors and types you can try first. There are a couple of more that do something similar as well.
