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 #19354 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.

Hog Trough Location in Columbia SC

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 #19381 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 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.
