Maybe its just me, but Clarksville, Russellville, Morrilton and Conway don't see that far away and Russellville and Conway have some excellent places to eat.

If I can drive that far, I could drive home, haha. As has been mentioned numerous times in this thread, you can always find a room in Bentonville/Rogers for one night and it will cheaper. Now, obviously, you needed to have done a little planning with the Craft Fair going on.

I talked to a starter on the 1979 Orange Bowl team today.  According to him, they are being honored or having some sort of reunion this weekend.  He decided not to go because he figured that it was going to cost him a minimum $1,200 to go for the weekend.

My goal is to relocate to NW Arkansas in three years. If I’m able to do that, my next step will be to have season tickets for football, baseball, and basketball.

I've did season tickets for Football, Basketball, and caught a few Baseball games one year.  That's dedicating a lot of time.

People can go for pretty much whatever they are willing to pay. One does not HAVE to stay over night, but for that one has to be willing to drive X hours after a game that is going to end around 10ish. One does not have to spend a lot on food, but they have to plan ahead and either pack a couple meals or eat cheap.

I could go to the game with my son for $12 ( two $6 tickets off stub hub ) and the cost of gas from FS and back. Eat at home before we go. But I know other people from FS who spent who knows what on season tickets, will be there tailgating as early as possible, will cook $300 worth of food, drink who knows how much beer and soda and are then spending the night and then going somewhere for a late breakfast Sunday morning before heading home. They will spend close to $1k up there this weekend.

So, did he play for OU or Nebraska?

My boys love those, I doubt NWA  has the needed population to swing one.

I can't get a grasp on their location choices. They have places like Fishers, Indiana and Centennial, Colorado and Webster, Texas... but no Los Angeles County or Orange County locations where golf is huge.

Seems like they aren't setting up based on population numbers. Maybe it's based on golf courses and local competition.

Yep. I know some people that come to game weekends that make enough $$$ to pay BB's annual salary, yet they eat dinner at Foghorns and stay at the Marriot.  I also know some that don't make six figures yet they come and throw down, rack up a $600 bill at Theos after the game and stay in the embassy for several nights. Quality of life is different for everyone.

I really haven't paid much attention to their locations, the only two I've been to are in KC  and Chicago areas.

I checked a couple of links, and it looks like the visitors' sections are K, S, S1, and maybe the top of S11.

I'm going to the game but using a UM professor's season tickets, so I have no idea where they are within Vaught-Hemingway.

If I were you, Id just go down to Oxford, find some friends in the Grove and sit there all day while watching the, ahem, talent that is walking around. The only way I would think about going into that game is if the tickets came free with a bowl of soup and an ugly hat.

Drove to Fayetteville to the Auburn game last week.  Driving back to Fayetteville for the Coastal Carolina game next week. It's 680 miles round trip.  So, I will be sitting in my living room in front of my HDTV to watch this one.  Even though Oxford is about 65 miles from my house... At least I will be able to cook some burgers on my grill... :)

Students sit in the south end zone.

They used to, but when they renovated the stadium they moved the students to the north end zone. I have a family friend who goes to Ole Miss and that's what they told me. Plus that's how it looks on this seating chart.

I found some for like $15 (including the $5 fee per ticket...) in Section K, which is listed as visitor on their website and on StubHub.
I know we're not good (understatement) but it's still nice to see them play. moved back to Memphis a few months ago and have been missing me some Hogs
