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...

I drove through there a couple years' ago coming home from Atlanta.  It looked like a city dump.  Nothing there impressed me.

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.

I went in 99.  It was right after Nutt had left Clint in the ULM game too long.  Needless to say we did not win.  No desire to go back.

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.

Hmmm so would forfeiting and losing 2-0 count as covering?  If so I've got a brilliant idea for paying the buyout.

Bought tickets before season started hoping we could compete.  Tried to back out but our hotel in Bham wont let us cancel.  Going to try to enjoy the atmosphere and cross it off my list of SEC stadiums.

One thing you'll notice is the difference in the way the crowd interacts with the game compared to the Hog fans (wms OR RRS). 101k STANDING and into it the entire game.

That's for sure..when I was there in '11 Tyler had to call a TO within the first couple mins of the game it was so loud..makes DWRRS sound like a high school game.

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?

Can’t believe you’re not asking for advice on where to pick up hot girls....  boy, guess things have sure changed since I was younger.....

The footage has already been leaked. It's a good watch at least.
