So, how does S. Carolina get a 7 seed and get to play in Greenville SC?

That pretty much nullifies some arguments made in here

where can I get best tickets prices?

Two years ago in Jacksonville, tickets to Ark-UNC were plentiful from scalpers outside.  I bought on Stubhub for $70, but ended up buying a ticket that was center court about 10 rows up for $75.  The scalper I bought it form said they were "boss man" seats which was very much true.  I ended up selling the original back to a scalper for $20.  I doubt you'll get that kind of deal with the close proximity to Carolina, but my experience is the scalper option is usually better than the ticket sites.

Oh well, life goes on.

Surely there are a few Hog fans near South Carolina...

There is a high school very close to Greenville and their mascot is.............Razorbacks!

8 seed Miami travels to Tulsa and 8 seed Hogs go to South Carolina?  Committee can't read a map?

8 seed Wisconsin has to go all the way to Buffalo, NY.

Hmmm....
This is the kind of thing that makes me think that the committee manipulates that "sixth man" thing to advance their favorite teams.

1st SEC Tourney Experience
« Reply #19357 on: March 14, 2017, 07:54:55 am »

So went to Friday and Sunday games.  Friday was awesome.  Saw the Florida/Vandy game and then our game.  Lots of fans from all schools but mainly Kentucky of corse.  My husband did not want to go to championship game (he has been before).  Said it's ALL blue and awful.  Home game for Kentucky.  Well, he was right about  the all blue, home game part.  I will have to say the Kentucky fans that we talked to, sat by were really nice.   I was surprised.  Outside the stadium, before the game, several Kentucky fans, and local people stopped us to say, you have guts for being here in the midst of all the blue.  I could not believe how few Hog fans were there (maybe 1000-1500 tops). Anyway, it was a great experience, proud we made the final.  Cannot stand Monk (even though he is a kid), glad he is one and done.  Hopefully we can advance in NCAA tourney and sick of the committee giving us NC!!!!

Proposed tram from LSU to downtown Baton Rouge could be moving forward
« Reply #19368 on: April 17, 2017, 12:31:03 pm »

https://twitter.com/aegallo/status/854002577767354368

Quote
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome's administration has signified interest in supporting the proposed tram to link downtown with LSU, with the new mayor saying she hopes the potential success in securing money for the tram could lead to more federal dollars for transit projects elsewhere in the parish.

Broome said on the campaign trail that she supported a variety of transit options to answer Baton Rouge's traffic woes, but she did not take an outright position as a cheerleader or detractor for the tram...

Her administration is now asking the Metro Council to authorize $500,000 for HNTB Corporation to continue planning for the tram before submitting an application in September for federal money to help pay for the $170 million streetcar. The project has split lawmakers over whether to support investing so much money into one part of the city. Some argue it is a smart move, while others in north Baton Rouge and southeast Baton Rouge have complained that there is insufficient investment in transit in their neighborhoods.

Who has made the trip to Baton Rouge?
« Reply #19371 on: May 22, 2017, 06:44:15 pm »

Thinking of making the Baton Rouge trip with my gang of wild bandits this year. We made the trip to TCU last year, Ole Miss 2 years ago, yadda yadda. Needless to say, we've seen some pretty memorable Razorback road games the last few years, but we're thinking of making our marquee game this year to Baton Rouge and staying Wednesday and Thursday night in NOLA. We've got a buddy to stay with in BR, but as far as actual gameday experience goes I've heard BR can be an intense and trying time for road travelers. I was hoping to get some reaction from some of y'all that have made the trip, your thoughts and feedback on the people, tailgating, and gameday experience as a whole.

Thanks in advance y'all!  :razorback:

Worked for several months there, and spent a lot of time around the campus.  LSU fans I met were great folks.  Even when they were being obnoxious loudmouths, it was all in fun.  They're just fun, passionate fans.

Been there many times and can back all the horror stories. Usually the better fans police their idiots. Travel too n from the stadium in bunches is suggested. Crying shame but I've witnessed some ugly stuff. The night Dmac,felix n Peyton crapped n their cherios I saw them tip up a VW bug (dressed out in hogdom) on its side like they were gonna turn it over. There was a bunch of them so they controlled the car then let it down but only cuz the police caught em. Poor girls were scared to death. Seen lots of fights.

I went in 1999. We were 7-4, they were 2-8 but Rohan Davey had a career day and we didn't show up and lost 31-13.

LSU fans are a different breed, no doubt. There is something in the water down there.

I will never forget the girl behind me somewhere that screamed in a hideous screech the entire game 'L-S-U...L-S-U...L-S-U...' I can still hear that screech...like nails on a chalkboard.

My wife and I went in 2013, which was Bielema's first year.  We almost pulled off an upset, and LSU fans were very nervous until the late TD.  They were actually very complimentary and many admitted we should've won. 

We heard plenty of Tiger Bait taunts, but they were pretty good fans overall.  We had a good time. 

Interestingly enough, we had an older, well dressed gentleman approach us after the game to ask about the game day experience in Baton Rouge.  He was the Director of the alumni association and was very interested in what we did/didn't like about the experience.  They really wanted to make the environment more appealing to visiting teams.  He listened intently and walked with us for quite a while.  I'm not sure what, if anything, they did with the feedback, but I appreciated him for asking.

Wear Razorback white.  Fly under the radar.  I grew up in Shreveport and refused to go to "Grade 13" in Baton Rouge.

Went to the UofA where I met my wife of 44 years and loved every minute of it.  When we return to Fayetteville, it feels like home.

Good luck with your trip to Death Valley.  It is a real spectacle at night - if you like purple and gold.  I prefer Razorback cardinal and white (not real fond of anthracite).

If you get the high end seats, no problems.  If you sit near the end zones with the Bubba Boudreaux's, it can get really rough if they are losing. Went the first time in 93, and we had batteries thrown at us once the score became lopsided in our favor. Looked for security and saw them with the culprits laughing.

Went with myself and a buddy. Had a blast. Got trashed and the fans shared lots of foods a drinks while tailgating.

However, as mentioned, tiger bait was screamed regularly, playful shoves, and general heckling.

I really enjoyed it, awesome electric environment. However I personally would not go with kids as an opposing fan, and I would hesisitate to even go with my wife. Most fans were nice but if we win things can go sideways.

I have been going to the LSU game in Baton Rouge for nearly twenty years and I have never had a bad experience, except for the losses. Always have a blast and end up in tailgate parties where I know no one. I wear all of my favorite Razorback gear and have "Tiger Bait" yelled at me just like all the rest of the Hog fans. There is always a drunk or two that get obnoxious but I see that at every venue I go to games at including Razorback Stadium and Baum.

Absolute worst fan base in the SEC. Like Pork Rinds said, if they win they will just yell Tiger Bait and cuss you all day. If the Hogs win, you better look down at your feet walking back to your car and not engage anyone in a civil conversation. I had a couple of their fans throwing things at my family, trying to engage us to fight, and just yelling things no children under 5 should hear. Also been to the Swamp, and Florida fans are like British gentlemen compared to LSU
