Thanks for the good information, Tusk to Tail.  My son and I plan to find y'all near Williams Brice Stadium Saturday.  We are from the East Coast of Arkansas.

It's a game that I've always tried to attend when we play in Tuscaloosa, but given the state of our program versus the machine that Saban is running, ain't no way I would drop $85 a ticket to see that raping!!!

Anyone making the trip to Tuscaloosa?
« Reply #18409 on: October 11, 2017, 11:21:30 am »

My best friend and I are heading down to Tuscaloosa to tailgate and support the Hogs. We may get beat but I'm still looking forward to having a good time down there and checking out the atmosphere. Is there anyone on here making the trip as well and would like to do some tailgating?  Anyone have any suggestions on where to go for drinks or meals?

Rama Jama's for a burger at the sw corner of the stadium. Right next to the door, They have a framed newspaper article of bama welcoming us to the sec. Dudley wrote it.  Dreamland BBQ.  University blvd. is next to the stadium so you can walk to it before and after the game to hit some bars.

I went in 2011 when I thought we actually had a chance. We got whipped from the opening whistle.

For the life of me I can't imagine going in there to watch a team of our ineptitude try and battle it out.

Good luck.

I don't feel for any Hog fans that get the pleasure to watch a SEC Saturday night game, against a top opponent, in a game they should have no expectations.

Being on the road at A&M and South Carolina losing would be a tough pill to swallow because we thought we could win.  I went to A&M game and still had a blast after the frustrating ending.

That said, with no expectations, go expecting to watch us get killed and enjoy the Tuscaloosa nightlife.  Anything on top of that is gravy.  Bama fans shouldn't rib too much, because we're a nobody and not on their radar. Plus in general they are a pretty nice bunch.

I truly applaud your support. Obviously not many will likely follow your example. However, let me change slightly three words in your post......"MAY get beat"......to "have our heads handed to us".

Tuscaloosa is a weird town—somewhat impoverished.  Not an exciting atmosphere despite their history.  Fairly run down place to have a flagship university.  Guess it's Alabama, though...

The outskirts of Tuscaloosa are pretty dumpy (strip malls and the like) but the downtown area has its charms. There and The Strip are where you'll find the nightlife.

The university campus is gorgeous IMHO and Bryant-Denny is a great place to watch a game.

If you want an unusual restaurant recommendation, check out Cypress Inn -- it's across the river from the university.

Luckily for you, I'm sure most of the Bama fans will feel sorry for us for the beat down they're gonna give us as opposed to just talk trash like the Barners would do. You'll probably get some pity, maybe the Bama fans will give you free beer at their tailgates. Always find the bright side!

This is a game we should forfeit and accept the 2-0 whipping and use the time to try and put together enough game to not get killed by Gus.  Need to save face here.  Maybe even keep several players from getting injured.  This BAMA squad has been taught how to make the players suffer.

Hmmm so would forfeiting and losing 2-0 count as covering?  If so I've got a brilliant idea for paying the buyout.

One thing you'll notice is the difference in the way the crowd interacts with the game compared to the Hog fans (wms OR RRS). 101k STANDING and into it the entire game.

That's for sure..when I was there in '11 Tyler had to call a TO within the first couple mins of the game it was so loud..makes DWRRS sound like a high school game.

How much are NWA hotel prices affecting football attendance?
« Reply #18444 on: October 18, 2017, 03:20:08 pm »

There is a glut of cheap tickets available for every Razorback football game these days, but if you check hotels right now room rates are pricing the fans who might purchase them out of going to a night game.

It is a factor that to keep in mind when you see the dwindling attendance, especially for the last two games of the season, and one that will need to be addressed in the future as the UA continues to add even more seats in a stadium it has very rarely sold out since expansion despite news releases telling us otherwise.

(This is not a GSD post. The time has come for no more games at WMS.)

Unfortunately, the hotel problem is serious at all the other SEC locations.  I guess they'd rather have a half full hotel at sky high prices than a full one at justifiably reasonable prices.

« Reply #18448 on: October 18, 2017, 03:34:47 pm »

Losing has more to do with attendance than anything.  Hotel rates are all supply/demand based.  If they weren't sufficiently booked they would be burning off the excess inventory with lower rates on sites such as Hotwire.  Hotwire rates are as high as I've ever seen them, meaning hotels are at or near capacity.  I just checked a couple of Bentonville hotes where friends have gotten last minute rooms at very affordable rates before, and they are booked full.  Also they have always been high for game weekends and required 2 nights stays etc.


If had a .500 or better record and season was looking up people wouldn't GAF about hotel rates.  They would stay with friends, pay the hotel rates or just make it a late night and drive home after the game.

I checked many of the games on stub hub at the start of the season and they weren't at extraordinarily low prices, because people had hope for the season.  The availability and price have more to do with people's perceived view of the rest of the season than hotel rates.
