I believe Keith and crew meet at Half Moon Windy City sports bar in Phoenix.  I really like Zipp's if there is one close by and get their Zipparitas!

If none of those work, there are a few sports bars in Old Town Scottsdale and it's a pretty fun atmosphere.

I went to a game in Starkville in the 90's, because I had a buddy that for some reason decided to go to Missy State.

I was so impressed, I haven't been back since.

So how was the trip /experience?

Great, especially with the win.  Probably will not come as a surprise to anyone but the pregame/tailgating experience and in game experience is hands down better than Fayetteville.

Lots of level space all around the stadium for tailgating and they make good use of it.  It surrounds the entire stadium lots of tents after tents after tents.  The experience in Fayetteville is too diffused so can't get a coherent/large tailgating area leading up to the stadium.  This helps getting the fans pumped/excited/ready for the game and makes for a far better social experience.

Hopefully with the stadium expansion at RRS they level off the pit.  Next step would be to not allow parking during in the pit during the game and use it just as a big tailgating area.  At State for example the parking and tailgating areas are not one in the same. 

We saw a lot of Razorback fans there.  Proud that they showed up in numbers.  As I explained to my family it's a much easier trip for people in Eastern/South Eastern Arkansas.

We ate at Little Dooey before the game and lot of Hog fans there.  MSU fans very friendly, got lots of welcome to Starkville.  Bazz and crew were doing there pregame show from there so that was cool. 

In game atmosphere also better at State.  Yes they have many sponsor messages during the breaks but not as many or not as intrusive as at RRS.  Music and timing is better as well.  They do a lot to keep the fans engaged, really get the pumped on opponents 3rd downs.  They do some pregame cheer stuff as well that got the fans fired up.  The energy level is just different and instead of raising our noses at programs we may view as inferior, Jeff Long and Co should be taking notes.

We sat in the Ark fan section.  Got tickets last minute on Stub Hub for $27.50 ea with fees.  The section was loud and most Ark fans stayed the entire game.  State fans said to hell with it at half.  Part of it was the score but I'm sure the weather played a part as well.  It was cold but we dressed appropriately.  Didn't leave until the players came over to the section and I was able to embarrass my kids by yelling Love you Drew, and you the man AA.

Overall great experience from start to finish.  I also appreciated the Arkansas defense for doing their part to keep the game interesting well into the 4th qtr.

I post this every other year when people make fun of Starkville.  I'm from Arkansas and graduated from the UofA. I was lucky enough to get a job in Starkville basically right out of college and ended up living there for 10 years.

It is a decent college town.  It doesn't have the cache of an Oxford but it also does not have the pretentious ahole fans thinking they are better than you and better than they are either.

There are actually a lot of good places to eat there as well.  A year or two ago it was voted best city in Mississippi to open a restaurant.  A few of my favorites are Little Dooey, Oby's, Harvey's, Old Venice Pizza Company, and Starkville Café.  I've never been to Restaurant Tyler but hear it's very good as well.

The stadium was pretty dumpy when I lived there in the early 90's but remember RRS wasn't much to look at until the early 2000's either.  They have done a lot to the stadium since then and although not one of the largest venues in the SEC it's decent and much nicer than the stadium in Oxford.

They've got tailgating areas all around and leading up to the stadium.  It feels more like the traditional collegial tailgating experience than say Fayetteville because it is so much right around the stadium with grassy and tree covered areas.  As someone else mentioned it's very easy to get in and out of the stadium and surrounding areas as well.

The cowbells are loud, but it's their thing and at least they go all out.  They support their team win or lose and are some of best fans in the conference.  Also some of the most gracious, real, and welcoming.

I've had Hogville members DM me with questions about Starkvegas, and without exception every time after the trip they have come back and said.  It was nice, or better than expected, we ate well, enjoyed it, had a good time and the people were nice.

Just go up to any Bulldog fan and say "God I hate the *&%! at Ole Miss" and you will have a friend for life.



I am one of those that DM'd and I thought Starkville was nice and tons better than expected.  I didn't go for football but stopped by to see the campus on a trip to Florida.  After visiting in person I think Starkville gets an undeserved bad rap.

1,2,3,4,5 and ends on both sides of upper level.  I would imagine after you get in, you will be able to sit pretty much anywhere you want.

You're welcome.  Flat Branch Pub & Brewing is a good eating/drinking spot a little over a mile from the stadium if you end up going to the game.

I would agree with this assessment.  Was my first trip there as well. 

Thought the atmosphere was good, really liked having jumbos on both end zones.  Cowbells are annoying, but since they don't yell the cowbells weren't near as loud as I expected. 

The one thing that was surprising though was the trash in the tailgating areas.  Post game you couldn't walk through any of the grassed areas without stepping on trash.  Maybe I'm getting old, but how much effort does it take to throw your crap in one of the numerous trashcans.  I just haven't seen that elsewhere we've been.

I think most of them were breathing a sigh of relief and especially on D knew they were lucky to get out of there with the W with the way they played.  I was a bit disappointed more didn't come over but where they met MSU at midfield was actually more toward their exit so I think it was just a natural tendency for them to drift that way after the handshakes.

Because they've moved other games/championships out of NC in response to their discrimination legislation.
I'm sure you could find a free seminar on how to be a bigot

I am no expert on Charlotte, but I really enjoyed a trip we took for a soccer game. I really enjoyed the fact that there were alot of nice parks around the stadium and plenty of places to eat/drink within walking distance. I would recommend Pinky's Westside Grill. It was on that Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives show. Since we had a short stay, we decided to try it out and it was pretty good. The pimento fries are a must. Also, I may be easy to please and haven't been to alot of NFL stadiums, but I was pretty impressed with the stadium. It isn't anything like say one of these huge state of the art facilities like the Vikings or Cowboys have put up recently, but for what it is, I thought it was really nice.
