If I could only eat one meal in NW Arkansas, it would be at Noodles in Fayetteville. 

Gross dude, the Mexicans in there can't even cook pasta properly.


You can do better at home with flour, 2 eggs, and a can of Prego. The sooner that place goes under, the better.

I wish Fayetteville would get a fazzoli's.  Their pasta is second to none.

I have been there many times when half the stadium was the away section. The vister side closest to what you would call their fieldhouse/dressing rooms. On the open end of stadium.

LOL...I had forgotten about the urinals, or maybe I just blocked out the memory.
I'm so old and my stream is so weak, I couldn't reach the wall without leaning over the trough.  Dangerous on a wet floor for sure!
I understand when the Bulldog fans get a little drunk...they stick their foot in the trough and piss down their leg!  Saved a few drownings... ;)

You know what I wanted to ask the question here to those that go to games often and can tell me where the best places are to go. This us our first time because we don't live a hope skip and a jump away, and my husband is a paramedic that often can't get off work to go to games because is too busy working in the back of an ambulance pushing IVs into people keeping them alive. It's also my 8 year old's first time to go as well. Yes, my 8 year old son that has dreamed about watching his favorite team his whole life. So, I really don't give a flying flick how Many freaking years you've been on here because I'd bet my 8 year son is more of a die hard fan than you far weathered heart. My son LOVES his hogs no matter how many games they win, who the coach is, or what decisions the current AD makes which is much more than 90% of the sorry fans I hear in hear gripping 24/7 do which probably includes yourself. Saturday, I garentee my family and I will enjoy ourselfs more than you and the other rude posters on here ever could because we will get to see a "true" fan in the eyes of an 8 year old. So if your tired of these homegame post like mine do yourself a favor and don't look at them.  I don't care how many years you've been on here, your odiously a miserable fan. Have a great day. WPS!

Lol, holy balls!! You must be extremely hot to be married with that temper.


I say skip the food, leave the kid at the hotel, and drink away some anger on Dickson street.

Yeah, except that if those folks are walking down the street and they need to pee, they'll just turn away from the street, unzip and go at it. Saw that happen in residential neighborhoods over there a lot. A bit of a culture shock.

If you want to be with the players family members and scholarship donars, sec W & V is where you want to be.  If you're across the field from those sections with the other visitors seats you will probably get some *ss with a cow bell in your ear.  Its horrible and you will leave the game with a splitting headache.  StubHub has those seats in W & V available but get them down low.  The seats in that section on the higher rows are Miss. St. seats.  I've been to alot of games over there and it's like a big high school. Fun but different.  Tip of Day-- If you tailgate don't leave ice chest or chairs out.  Ours >:( got ripped off last time we were there.  They're a class bunch over there!

Ok here is all you need to know

For bars on Friday Night or Saturday night you need to go to The Vista if you are above the age of 25 or 5 Points if you are a college student or recent grad.  These are 2 different bar districts in Columbia that appeal to 2 different crowds.  All the bars you need in both nightlife districts.

On gameday there are really only 2 bars near the stadium.  One is Jaco's Corner.  Jaco's is the oldest bar in Columbia(100 years old this year).  It's an old mill bar that was founded by moonshiners who were friends with Jack Daniels.    The bar is a real hole in the wall, but has a great atmosphere and you'll meet some fantastic people in it.

The other Gameday Bar is Loose Cockaboose.  This bar has lots of TVs, live music, but has too many fights and crazies in it for my taste.  Jaco's isn't as fancy, but it's better IMO.

Plenty of tailgating around the stadium.  You have the Fairgrounds across the stadium and lots of local business lots you can park in.  For those who have been to USC in the past they have completely redone the Farmer's Market area and made it into a very pretty & large tailgate spot.    On the Olympia side of town you can park in many people's yards for $10.  Keep in mind the stadium is about 3 miles off campus. 

You can also park at the Colonial Life Arena(USC's basketball facility) and take a shuttle to the stadium.

If you are in South Carolina then you need to eat some SC BBQ, since the mustard style is unique.  Shealy's BBQ in Batesburg, SC is the most popular place, but its about a 40 minute drive from Columbia.  In town you should try Doc's BBQ or Little Pigs.   Maurice's isn't bad either. 

If you have any other questions please feel free to email me.  Dixiefriedsports@gmail.com.   

Everyone have a safe trip to Columbia and I look forward to seeing some Hog fans.

It looks like I also have an extra ticket (row 32 in section 17). I've got two people going with me, but doesn't look like a 3rd will join. I'll be in Irmo, SC (just north of Columbia off 26) on Friday night, then parking at Colonial Life Arena around 9:30-10am on Saturday. PM me if interested in the ticket.

I attended the game in 2010 and really enjoyed my experience in Columbia. Looking forward to it again.

I JUST posted a thread offering restaurant suggestions.  As far as hotels go...I'm not too sure.  Hampton Inn hotels are probably the best quality for the money.  Their rooms go for around 100 a night.  But it really depends on how much money you want to spend.

Did you find my thread about food places? oh and I just noticed you wrote Columbus in the header.  Did you mean Columbia?  I was assuming you meant Columbia since that's where the game will be played.

My family and I are making the trip over. We're having a fantastic sports weekend. Getting to see my sisters play for Ohio st bball team in the carrier classic and then the football game. It's my little bro's first away game so he's pretty stoked. Just hope the team comes to play for 4 quarters, I know that's a lot to ask these days.
