Pretty sure that's for handicapped people to park.

It's handicap, but at kickoff anyone can park there per the parking lot attendants.

Possibly the Chili Pepper run?

I believe that is at the Agri Park Cross Country Course. That is a long way away from Baum. That being said since fans were leaving the game early I though when we stayed till the end the traffic would be fine. I was wrong. When we got to Gregg street it was stop and go. We weren't sure why but later saw a whole lot of school busses and teams with running clothes on. We realized there was something going on. The Chili Pepper run is a big event and would cause some traffic issues by itself much less with a football game the same day. It's a great event to have in Fayetteville but I don't understand why it would be scheduled the same day as a football game creating even more than normal game day traffic.

I have parked at Baum for years and about 2-3 years ago there were several more parking spaces that started being blocked off for the disabled.

After the game, I went to my daughter's sorority house for about 45 minutes and then headed to my hotel in Bentonville from my parking spot near Wilson Park. I used College(71B) to go north. After turning on College, it was bumper to bumper at 5 mph all the way to 49. It took an hour and a half to get from the Pi Phi house to exit 85, I've never seen the traffic this bad for a game with 30,000, lol......

Yeah for the TCU game we had planned to park there, but it was full by noon or so, I thought it was due in part to  tailgaters displaced from the construction.

Crazy bad traffic. Especially when a huge majority of fans left the game real early. WHY they would schedule two sporting events that will cause traffic the same day is baffling. I know the Chili Pepper is also a big event but football still pays the bills. It's like the Bikes Blues and BBQ. It's a great thing to have and draws huge numbers to the area but it's always during an away game.

That is in no way appetizing to me. Like at all.

Much worse than Taco Rice that we had in Okinawa.

Anyone making the trip to Tuscaloosa?
« Reply #18574 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.
