Although most Bama fans are cordial and friendly, don't be surprised when the typical Bama AHole fan you don't know comes up to you and makes a stab at the Hogs and/or our program.

You won't see a single confederate battle banner...

Ok, now you are being crazy. This is the same state that had the rally on the Alabama state capitol steps claiming "Southern Lives Matter" which was a support rally for the Confederate Flag? Every trailer park in Tuscaloosa has a few Confederate Flags. I am in that area weekly.



And apparently, the demand is very high right now...

http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2015/07/confederate_flag_demand_has_al.html

Even the Alabama State Troopers wear the flag on their sleeve. But go ahead with your propaganda about Alabama being politically correct in all they do if it makes you feel better.

I drove across NWA this week, working and there are just as many Confederate flags hanging on porches (and even one on the side of a tree) as there are anywhere in Alabama.

You've obviously never been. We don't have that in Tuscaloosa. Must be thinking about Oxford.

Just admit it - it is crawling with KKK.

Dreamland BBQ

http://www.dreamlandbbq.com/default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

I have never tried Dreamland's sauce, but from what I gather it is a thin, tart, peppery sauce that is on the different side.  Maybe should perhaps be called a mop sauce.

Frankly, many people may feel that the BBQ places to go to in Alabama are Big Bob Gibson BBQ in Decatur, Alabama, and Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q in Bessemer, Alabama.

The campus is nice the locals are polite (at least before the game), many of them will greet you and tell you they are grilling pork (they think that is just a hilarious joke - guess they don't know that you always eat the winner). Last time I was there was when we beat them after the rain delays, I think it was 2009. Some of the older fans were quite grumpy at the end and after the game, kept yelling at us and telling us to sit down. It was an awesome trip, we had painted Beat Bama and Roll Hogs on the sides and back window of the SUV, driving through some of the smaller villages in rural Alabama the natives looked at the car like if they had seen a UFO.

You will also get a lot of love when you stop to get gas etc from Auburn fans. (At least that week).
You must've been hammered drunk or something....cause I'm quite certain we haven't won at Alabama in over 10 years.

In 2007 we lost to Bama at bama by 3 in OT.  Later that year the win was vacated due to infractions of NCAA rules.  Bama's SEC record went from 6-2 to 2-6.  Their loss, our victory.

Edit...This is all I have to hold on too, so don't take it away from me.

Ate at dreamland during the summer. Had on a hog shirt. They customized my plate with a roll tide made out of sauce. When I got it I acted like I was about to puke and the waitress freaked. The manager came over, we all had a good laugh and I got a free dessert. Good food!

Any links or info greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  Go Hogs!  :razorback:

Parking (stay off University Blvd) :
Depending on how you come into town - attempt to find and turn onto Campus Blvd East (McFarland will take you there).  Drive towards the campus (West) - when you see the RV parking (5th Avenue East), turn into the parking area -  there is a field behind the RV parking.  Bus stop #1 is directly across from the RV parking on Campus Blvd.  The bus will deliver you to the Quad, where you can exit and walk to the stadium.  Bama has the best bus transportation on campus that you will find anywhere - I highly recommend using it.  After the game - return to where you were dropped off and the bus will take you back to the bus stop.  Entering and exiting the campus is very easy from that parking spot.  After the game - you will probably get back onto McFarland to get to the highway that brought you into town.  Just relax - traffic is going to be a pain in the rear.   

Safe travels and I hope you enjoy the experience.

I hear their Klan rallies are top notch.

If you got to Dreamland be sure and order the BBQ ribs with white bread. Because that's all they serve, unless something has changed in the last 10 years.

Not disputing that dude. I am disputing this comment by your fellow Gump:
I'm quite sure you can find numerous confederate banners in any trailer park in Arkansas (I've been there also - spoken at statewide symposiums). I said that you won't find a confederate banner anywhere on campus or near the stadium, which is not true in Oxford. I stand by that statement. Bring back pix, if you see them. Outside the campus, Tuscaloosa is a gritty southern industrial town - tires, paper, other industries in the past and now car manufacturing. If you don't think you can find confederate banners in rural Arkansas, that's just being stupid. Personally, I'm from extreme North Alabama, and many of our forebears fought for the Union. I had two GGF serving in the Union army and one other who was a member of the Union League and had all - ALL - his property confiscated by the confederate state of Alabama, so, understandably I have no love for the banner. Get back to me, when you have pix of the banners around the stadium. Otherwise, it might be wise to drop the rhetoric without facts. BTW, did you know that over half the student body at Bama is from other states, and most of those from outside the South? Food for thought, if you can digest it...

I like Big Bob Gibson's much better than Dreamland. Don't even waste your time at a Dreamland franchise, like the one in Huntsville, AL. The one on Jug Road Tuscaloosa is good, but not as good as Big Bob's.

You can find numerous Confederate banners anywhere in Arkansas thankfully.  While the PC movement has tried to take our (and your) heritage away, it seems to have only intensified the movement in many areas.  Just because some ignorant groups (KKK, Skinheads, etc.) decided to make the Confederate flag their own, it does not stop me (and others) from celebrating our heritage and from me personally, honoring my great-grandfather who fought in The War of Northern Aggression.

Big Bob Gibson BBQ routinely gets put on the list of Top 20-Top 30 BBQ restaurants in the United States.

They simply know how to barbeque.  Besides the restaurant, their competition team knows how to barbeque.  Last weekend was the American Royal World Series of Barbeque competition in Kansas City.  The Big Bob Gibson team finished 5th Overall in the Open Competition.  The Open Competition was 606 teams. 

Finishing in 5th place overall out of 606 teams is excellent barbequing.

IMO, the best BBQ in town is actually over the river in Northport at Archibalds.

HIGHLY recommended...

Tide fans, IYO which seats will be better? Section N-6 or section B?

A friend is trying to sell 2 tickets in section B and mine are in section N-6. Depending on which seats are better he said he'd switch them and sell ours if we wanted those.

Personal preference, honestly. I like the EZ perspective for a change of pace (your N-6 seats) but section B will be closer to the 'normal' view you see when watching football on TV. I actually really like corner / EZ seat as it's the best of both worlds, imo, but it's purely subjective.

I've sat all over BDS over the years and honestly I don't think there's a bad seat in the house other than the first 10 rows on the sidelines (where about half the field is blocked by the players on the sideline)...

What a damn GUMP.

The OP said he was going to T-Town. Your comment said  "you woulddn't see a Conferate Banner." I called BS and you go on THIS rant?

Get over yourself. The KKK is alive and well in Alabama.

This could be why Williams-Brice is only about 80 percent full

Traffic outside stadium still backed up for game &/or neighboring state fair. Judging from empty seats likely SC fans. Small VU section full

Harry Ts regrets 'unsportsmanlike conduct,' vows to make amends with LSU fans

Florida restaurant @HarryTsDestin regrets its 'unsportsmanlike conduct,' vows to make amends with @LSUfball fans: http://ow.ly/TLSOf

Quote
Florida Gators alumni club had reserved an area of the Harry T's Lighthouse restaurant in Destin and had requested that fans from the competing team not be allowed in.

Don Bass, one of the LSU fans, told WBRZ-TV he was in Destin for a wedding Saturday and was hoping to eat with friends and family and watch LSU play Florida at Tiger Stadium on TV. Bass, from Mississippi, was wearing an LSU hat.

"We were greeted by the manager, and the first thing he said was, 'there's no LSU fans allowed in here.'"

The incident sparked a heated exchange

Advice for Baton Rouge visit
« Reply #15490 on: November 08, 2015, 09:50:17 am »

I've heard so many stories of people getting spit on and beer poured on them and I've been told by so many people who have been that they will NEVER go back.

Going.

Any advice from those who've made the trip?

I'm driving in from New Orleans. 

Parking?
Food?
Tailgate?

Thanks.

Dress in neutral garb so to not stick out as an opposing fan.  Do your best to keep your angst or enthusiasm down as best as you can.

Finally.  Reconsider going.  Horrible fans.  Horrible treatment.  You'll, in all likelihood, regret spending the Benjamins on this trip unless you're loaded enough to not miss them.

Oh, and don't forget about their players making fun of our recently departed football player from BPs era.

I'd call that low class, but that would be too insulting to those who simply have low class.

I've lived their before and have many, many friends in Baton Rouge - so my perception is different I guess.
Most LSU fans are fun, friendly and absolutely love to feed you some of their tailgate food.
If you take their ribbing without copping an attitude you'll be fine.

(Of course, their will always be the drunk rednecks and some of the frat boys that act stupid - just stay away from them)

Been a number of times
As with all road trips, don't engage with taunting - just walk away
Many more friendly fans
Getting back into the French Quarter on a Sat night can be a challenge

Oh, don't use a Porta potty near the stadium

Wear a cup and walk thru the gate holding a corn dog.

It's real.  My Strike Eagle days are over, but I flew it for several years.  Combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Thanks for the props!

1. Don't be a puss.  Wear the Hog gear with pride, and feel free to interact with the local corndog-smelling folk.  They're fine.  Just don't talk bad about the Saints.

2.  When we win, don't be a drunken obnoxious prick.  Authorities will never find your body.

3.  Take time to enjoy some local food places.  If you go to any sort of chain restaurant with all the local places around, you deserve food poisoning.  Coming up from New Orleans, you should know what I'm talking about.  Or just stop in the jambalaya capital of the world for breakfast.

4.  If you're up for it, check out the awesome casino a few miles down the road from campus.  LSU grad students make some super hot cocktail waitresses.

5.  Take a spare ice chest, drive over to Port Allen across the river, find Bergerons, load up on meat.  If you can do that before tailgating, all the better.
