Re: Razorback Stadium Game Day Experience
« Reply #19100 on: September 11, 2017, 01:42:29 pm »

Saturday was first time at a Hog game since the Auburn game two years ago. As someone who lives in the Columbia, MO area, I always tell Tiger fans how bad their game day experience is, but I don't know that I have room to speak.

I find it irritating that the game has started and there are still lots of empty seats as people haven't made it from the tailgate to the game. Are you there to tailgate or watch football? I went to watch Arkansas State at Nebraska last week and I can assure you the stadium was pretty well full for well before the game started. They do a tribute to Frank Broyles before the game and a hog call, but the stands are still half empty.

The overall atmosphere seemed apathetic. The crowd was dead during the game and it looked like a lot of people didn't even bother returning for the second half.

It took much longer to get through the gates than normal. I think that was part of the reason so many empty seats at start. I know I will get down to the stadium earlier the next game. Hopefully they will get the bottlenecks fixed, but I doubt it.

And how about that cheesy halftime video with a Coldplay song showing the new addition to get fans excited to spend more money.  YAY

Yeah, they showed the crowd's faces quite a bit on TV.  Especially in the second half.  Lots of people with hands over their mouths.  The expressions I saw were either open anger and frustration or what I imagine what someone's face would look like while watching a train wreck occur in real-time.

The concessions and lines were horrible, no excuse for that. I knew there would be problems when I kept seeing tweets wanting non-profit groups to man them. Now, they always have in the past, but pleading for help a week out made me believe they would be ill prepared.

Maybe the UA should look at hiring work study kids to help out.

Works for me, it was beyond embarrassing. I had no problem as I did my run way before the start of the game, but I thought some in my section had given up at halftime, only to show back up at the start of the 4th.

None of the large contract catering operators are very good. Sodexo, Levi.............it doesn't matter. At least Sodexo never ran out of "receipt" paper for register. Happened one customer win front of us. The supervisor was so slow getting it by the time he came back I had switched lines farther back and STILL got my food faster than the lady that had been waiting in the original line.

Comfy couch. Check.
Cold beer. Check.
Fresh. Good food. Check.
No stinky sweaty people beside me. Check.
Listen to the radio broadcast while watching the game. Check

Not out of any money like the rest of the clowns to listen to the same stupid songs, cheesy "hype" videos, and petite jean ham yodels. Check.

It's impossible for you to prove how much smarter you are than those at the games by sitting in your chair and complaining about everything Hog related. All it does is make people believe your a semi-smart troll.

Saturday parking at Baum??
« Reply #19111 on: October 01, 2017, 01:48:27 pm »

Anybody know why large sections of the parking lot at Baum Stadium were blocked off and unavailable for parking last Saturday?  Is this something that is going to be the new normal or was it a one time occurrence?  I'll hang up and listen.

It's been that way for all home games. I'm going to assume the UA has started filling those blocked areas with folks that have paid the ridiculous $750 for a parking pass. Eventually the entire lot will probably be pay only.

I've just started paying $5 and parking across from the track center. Easy walk to the shuttle. It's an even easier exit afterward.

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.

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.

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 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".

Have a great trip. GHG!!
