Default Advice for Georgia Trip

Hope this thread is in the right place. I'm rollin in to Athens for the first time and am looking for info. Hoping to buy some tickets off the street. Where is the best place to park? How much should I be expecting to pay for the nosebleeds? Are there any must-sees around UGA?

Are there any gamecock-safe tailgating areas that I can visit (just plan on parking somewhere and walking around campus and town). If I don't feel like buying the tickets where is the best place to watch the game?

Where is that arch so I can urinate on it? Any other information that y'all wanna provide.

Like Bart Scott I Can't. Wait.

Thanks

Only been there once, cant help you with parking. I can tell you it is a hostile place. Keep your head down. Upperdeck is your best bet for seating. That is where most of the visitors are and where you are least like to get hit with a battery

Is it really that hostile? And are we talking AA, AAA, or D batteries (seriously, batteries?)?

Never been there, but have heard stories of cars getting keyed, objects thrown at fans & such. I went to a Georgia game once at the Brice & these Georgia fans in front of me were the most annoying fans I have ever come across, except for that one time I went up to Knoxville & had to endure those Vols fans. If Carolina wins I would just say run to your car in a hurry & get the heck out of there.

Things get thrown, drinks get poured, standard stuff.

the most ridiculous thing was the GA sheriff's writing tickets for alcohol to visiting fans but letting uga people walk on by.

buddy of mine was thrown out with his entire row because troopers were walking the eisles, saw a mini bottle on the ground, and no one would fess up.

Find a group of Carolina fans to walk to and from the stadium with.

Well I can tell you this I have been there twice. The last time I was there was with a buddy who was in Law Enforcement. Even though they beat us they still talked smack and wanted to fight. It got to the point where my buddy stopped a police officer and told him" Look I am a cop in south Carolina and these guys are trying to fight and want leave me and my friends alone" The police officer did help but I will never go back there again.

I have been three times. Once as a young child with the Union County Gamecock Club. We tailgated all day, and the dawg fans were obnoxious to us when we were out throwing the football. This grown man came over and took our football. I guess he didn't think our dad's were gonna come get it, but we had no problem getting it back! The other two times I went as a grown man and I've never had a problem. Actually I sat right beside a jawja fan and his wife in 2009 when we should have won but Garcia threw it to the wrong guy at the end. Anyway, those two were really classy, we talked like any other 4 ppl would have. The other time I went was in the 90's and it was pretty rough. I am 0-3, so I refuse to go back.

It just depends on which group of Georgia fans you encounter. Some are cool and some are arseholes. Don't plan on leaving Athens at 8 or anything. You'll be in traffic for a while.

Not sure whats the deal with all of these "horror" stories...It's not bad at all. Actually, it's probably the best road trip IMO and I've been to them all. Cool town, eye candy galore and a good tailgate scene. As far as a little trash talk goes...if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

You are headed into the cesspool of the south. Prepare for the smell. It will help to hum this little ditty around any dawgs you may be unfortunate enough to be around.

I've been there several times. And the only time I've seen a loss was the time Robert Edwards ran all those second half TDs. I was even there in the end zone when Brandon Bennett dove over for the winning score. But, I usually go with a neighbor who is a dog fan.
THE traffic and parking sux, both before and after the game. Be ready for long walks to and from the stadium. It was worse back in the eighties when there were drunken frat parties on the lawns, but no so bad now.....before the games. After the game its best to leave with a Carolina crowd and get in your car and leave, win or lose. As I said we usually went in a uga fan auto, but I have seen several USC autos vandalized, especially after we win.
All in all, not a classy place. Ole Miss and Auburn are better game venues. And even tatertown is better, at least prior to the game. If uga were not there, Athens might be a cool little town, but of course without uga there would be no town.
Bottom line, be careful, don't show out, enjoy a win, and save your celebration until you get back home.

I love this thing. Sent it to a few of my Georgia friends. It's going to be a long week here in Atlanta.

Been a few times. I've never had trouble other than some hot shit talking back and forth. But a buddy got curb stomped a few years ago and lost some teeth. Was too drunk and couldn't keep his mouth shut.....literally. Also had a buddy punch through a bar window in downtown Athens....bailed him out the next morning and he said the drunk tank was similar to Alvin s Glenn (if you've ever had the privilege of spending an evening there)
Don't walk around Athens alone, move with a group. And don't get blackout drunk, just buzzed enough to keep you from slitting your wrists from the constant barking you'll hear.

Serious question. Do you think scalpers will assume they can get more money off of gamecock fans? Either out of leverage or spite? Should I bring an impartial shirt to don before I get negotiating?

Possible they won't sell to Gamecocks. I had knew a guy who pulled for that team in Pickens who scalpers wouldn't sell to in 2011.
