Default First time going to Athens

My wife and I are going to be heading over to Athens for the first time on Saturday, and were wondering if anyone else is going to be leaving from the Lexington/Columbia area that we could caravan with? We're planning on leaving around 8:00-9:00 Saturday morning. Getting to the area shouldn't be a problem, but we're trying to make sure we don't end up parking in the middle of all-Bulldog country, don't get lost trying to find parking, etc. Please PM me if you're interested.

It is AWESOME! You'll be driving and its all country and old houses/farms and then BOOM! You're in Athens and it's sweet! Watch out though, you can't have alcohol on the sidewalks.

Best looking girls in the SEC IMO...don't take alcohol outside bars or you get ticket/arrested. The stadium not as nice as I thought it would be.

Be very, very careful if you choose to walk over the tressel. I got hit with a bourbon bottle our last game there. There were some rocks dropped as well.
It was very loud that day.
We parked in downtown Athens and had no problems at all. We are staying with some Georgia family this time. That might get interesting.

I've been to several games there, including some non UGA v USC games and you are right, it just doesn't seem to be a very loud stadium.

I know the bars were fun when I lived there. Much better then 5 points. Of course I knew better then to walk in there with a USC shirt.

Be real careful when driving through Athens. If you slow the car down real slow, they'll toss a diploma in the backseat!

If you talk to their fans they are going to play it up like they are huge underdogs and say things like "Don't hurt us too bad"! They are incredibly critical of their team after a loss. If we win a lot of them will change their tune and get a little nasty towards you. It has happened every time I have attended a win for us there.

Yep, they can be nasty at home during a loss. I've had stuff thrown at me in that stadium, though the people around me were very friendly. Athens is a great town, but UGA fans are a bit over emotional if you ask me ( kinda like Dabo, except they bark).

Default Re: First time going to Athens

Been to a good portion of SEC stadiums and while I like their campus, their stadium, their bar scene downtown...they are easily the worst fans to be around, especially after they lose a game.

I have seen more things thrown at opposing fans inside Georgia's stadium than anywhere else...and they will do the whole "shit talking after you have passed their tailgate" from behind- not to your face.

I almost got arrested in 2005 or 2006 when we played there. I went outside to my vehicle to grab something and they wouldn't let me back inside the bar where my girl was at. Door guys started talking a lot of shit (one had zero teeth, no joke) and tried to flag down cops on bikes saying I was causing trouble. I had only been in that bar about 5 minutes total...but had a Gamecock shirt on. Cops were dicks, too. Didn't want to hear anything I had to say.

Again, it is fun and the ride to Athens is great...but their fans, in general, suck imo.

We're going over later today. Staying with some UGA friends that actually went to school there, and don't breathe fire after a loss.

IMO - don't leave Carolina car flags or magnets on an unattended vehicle in Athens. I've seen everything from busted out windows to keyed cars in Athens. The UGA imbreds will find your car if you don't take down.

The 'Tree That Owns Itself' is cool thing to see over on Finley and Dearing St/in a nice neighborhood. Also might want to walk through the quad/see the Arches.

GO COCKS!!

Take a change of clothes if you are driving back that night...they like to piss in cups and throw them at opposing fans.
