  • You enjoyed the trip, got to see your team win, and it's another stadium you can say you have visited. 

    Not a bad night at all was it?

    Any dining experiences of note? 
  • #15602 by F15EPilot on 15 Nov 2015
  • No dining report. I had to leave immediately after the game. Well, yes, actually. In truth I had the 2 worst hotdogs of my life at the stadium.
  • #15603 by sevenof400 on 15 Nov 2015
  • My condolences to your digestive system, F15!

    I'm afraid that's your own fault, Man.  Should have gone with corndogs.  It's a true LSU delicacy.

  • #15607 by TNhawgfan on 15 Nov 2015
  • trust me, the stories of their fans are not false. worst fanbase I've encountered. glad they had nothing to be excited about last night
  • #15608 by popcornhog on 15 Nov 2015
  • Pregame:  I only got there an hour prior to kickoff so not much time to evaluate. But there were a ton of GREAT tailgates with big screens, grills, drinks and such. All the fans were fine. The worst thing I encountered was a few "Tiger Bait" taunts but they were good natured taunts.

    The atmosphere:  What a let-down. One of the main reasons I went to this game was because I've always wanted to see the legendary Death Valley at night. At no point during the game was it as loud as Fayetteville. Not once. And most of the time it was DEAD. I asked several LSU fans what was wrong and they mostly said that LSU fans are either all in or disinterested. Once they lost to Alabama and were out of title contention they stopped caring. 7-1 record and ranked #9 and they are already giving up on the season. I can remember 2 third downs when the crowd tried to get loud to help their D...but the best they could muster was about like a Fayetteville third down when we're already up by 28 and on the way to an easy win. And the atmosphere wasn't lethargic just because we blew up to a 21 point lead. It was dead from the kickoff.

    The fans:  At the game the fans basically ignored us. Neither rude not polite. This has been mentioned a lot all over, but the fans began leaving at half. At least 2,000 people walked out at half. It was only a 14 point game. Pathetic. Later when they cut it to 7 points and had tons of momentum, we countered with a fieldgoal and the floodgates opened. Just a 10 point difference and tons of time left and they were flowing out. I was completely stunned.

    Post game:  The hog fans roared. It was sweet. The LSU fans quietly wandered away. I never saw anyone being confrontational to a Hog fan.

    Overall:  Great game by the Razorbacks!  After all I've heard about LSU fans spitting on you and throwing bottles and all that (not doubting those things happened to others) I didn't see anything like that. The fans were a big disappointment in their fanhood...but they didn't give us any trouble at all. I was glad to see my Hogs silence that place but I was disappointed not to get the full LSU night game experience.

    Go Hogs!

    Some of the loudest games I've ever been to were in Tiger Stadium.

    It was dead last night though. You're right.
  • #15609 by lahawg1 on 15 Nov 2015
  • When it was in the last 2 minutes of the game you could hear the stadium calling the HOGS over the tv announcers.

    I'm glad you had a good time and didn't have to encounter any BS. I was Wondering about you (and the rest of the Hog fans) walking out of that stadium and how that would go after the win! From your post I would guess we man handled them so badly their fans didn't have any fight left in them to the point of apathy.
  • #15611 by moses_007 on 15 Nov 2015
  • I'd guess the LSU fans were so stunned they decided to not strain their vocal chords in this game.  You really can't blame them.  But the stadium emptying out as early as it did is a huge cause for alarm. 
  • #15612 by hoglady on 15 Nov 2015
  • Thank our football team for taking their crowd out of the game early.
     
    I think the LSU fanbase has just grown disillusioned with yet another dysfunctional offense - same song year after year after year.
    The LSU fans I know had high, high hopes for Brandon Harris and Fournette this year.

    They now see that Harris has not progressed and improved (not his fault - can't think of an LSU QB who was better the day he left than the day he got there) and realize Fournette can't carry that offense through every single game.

    Yep - I don't care how good a crowd a team has - when the offense can't move the ball and you're down 21 - 0 in the 2nd quarter, most any crowd is pretty silent.

    Don't be an idiot.  I said I was disappointed in their apathetic atmosphere.  Then I commended their behavior.  I had heard so many reports of their misbehavior that I wanted to say for the record that they were not bad with us.  No disappointment about that at all.

    I was disappointed to not see one of the supposed greatest venues for college football.  I'm a fan of the game.  One of the millions of reasons college football is great is because of the lore of Death Valley at night.  I was disappointed not to experience it at it's peak on my one trip there.

    Would I rather lose and see that?  Of course not.  But I would have enjoyed hearing that place shake...quickly followed by silence as AC takes it to the house.  Yes.  Very much.
  • #15619 by hoglady on 15 Nov 2015
  • I get what you're saying.
    The LSU crowd was put mentally out of the game early - so you never got to see the loud and rowdy crowd LSU is known for.
    I hope you got hear their band - my favorite SEC band for sure.
  • #15620 by JIHawg on 15 Nov 2015
  • They are probably obnoxious when they are winning.  When they are losing, they pout.

  • #15623 by CallThemHawgs! on 16 Nov 2015
  • Sounds like the exact opposite of my experience there back when we had Mallet, Petrino, and crew.

    Loud as hell, fans were mean, and we got ripped off at the end of the game as LSWho drove down to score a last second TD for the win.

    Cant judge anyplace on one game I dont think. Except Mizzou, that place is just a S$%t hole.
  • #15624 by F15EPilot on 16 Nov 2015
  • What's up HUCHS?  Been a while...
  • #15625 by Jackrabbit Hog on 16 Nov 2015
  • Been there one time.  We went- me, the wife, college freshman daughter and high school junior daughter - in 2011 when they were ranked #1 in the BCS and we were ranked #3 (Tyler Wilson's junior season).  Like many, I went down there very curious about whether all the stories I'd heard were true.  Of course, the game itself turned out to be a huge disappointment (great start, then getting overwhelmed late, but getting to see CBP's four-letter shout out at Les was fun).

    Regarding fans, my impressions were that the older fans were generally nice.  I remember as we parked and began our walk to the stadium we talked with lots of their fans and they were genuinely concerned about the game and had very respectful things to say about our team.  But as we got closer to the campus and began to encounter most of the younger fans and the college age kids, it got pretty bad.  Lots of things yelled at us; a couple of bottles thrown - not to hit us I'm sure but it was still kind of unsettling - and even a few that started following us and yelling at us as we walked.  Once we finally got into the stadium, most everyone was focused on the game so we didn't get any real abuse there.  Then, leaving the stadium, we just tried to keep a low profile and hurry back to our car as quickly as we could.  Nobody paid much attention to us. 

    Their stadium was extremely loud that day and I was impressed by all of that, but I think I've experienced louder at Alabama and Auburn (and yes, even DWRRS a time or two).  The lasting impression was the behavior of those young fans before the game, and it's probably the reason why we won't be going back to Baton Rouge.

    One last thing; the worst I've ever seen opposing fans was at War Memorial after we played LSU in 2006. 
  • #15626 by jkstock04 on 16 Nov 2015
  • The 2011 game is the one I attended as well. The loud speaker mic literally in my face taunting while 100's of people around jeered and encouraged as we were walking to the vehicle from the stadium is something I'll never forget.

    Thanks for the recommendation. We'll have to try it sometime. Especially since I'll never go back to Powerhouse. That location has been through a lot of different things over the years. I remember when it was one of the best bars in town called the Gazebo………………….
