Anyone coming to watch the game? Richt is undefeated in Neyland. I hope we can change that, but I don't expect a victory for the vols.


Edit:geographical.

I might me coming up. The girlfriend and I are working on a place to stay.

It should be a good game. I would hate to drive all the way up there just to lose.

Any suggestions on hotels? All the ones I've called are full and my friend who we usually stay with is going out of town.

Anyone else planning on going???

somehow, our hometown is seething with treason.

It's a miracle how we play amidst such atmosphere

Nothing decent. There are a couple of seedy joints around that I'm sure will have rooms. What night are you staying? You might think about staying in chattown or somewhere else in between. Let me know if you guys head down here, we can hook up for beer after or before, or during.

People don't head "down" to Tennesee from GA; it's UP for us!

<<<< Guilty of treason

I'm originally from TN, so it would actually be treason to pull for the Dawgs (except for when they play FL).
Link Posted: 10/2/2007 3:47:52 PM EST
I moved from Knoxville over two years ago and I am for UGA and whoever is playing TN. I was the AntiVol for a long time. Nothing sucks like a big orange.

That being said. I think the Dawgs will get it handed to them this weekend. I hope not but that is my prediction. And Full Philmer's job is depending on it. I know people in Ktown are talking about swinging the ax again.

We are just going to stay with some family in Chattanooga Fri and Sat. night. Probabaly drive up early Saturday morning and tailgate, maybe scalp some tickets. We are thinking about hanging out for a while after the game and let some traffic clear out before heading back to Chattanooga.

Any good sports bars or restaurants near the stadium? I've never been to Neyland so I'm not familiar with the surroundings.

Several, all along the strip. Just ask anyone in orange where the strip is, they should be able to help you.

I, of course, live here. So I will be going. I will be showing up to park much earlier than usual, because it is a big game.

I have season tickets with a friend that lives in Chattown, so as soon as he gets here, around noon.

We are planing on arriving around 9 or 10 to tailgate and "prepare" for the game.

We're driving from Chattanooga too. I'm hoping the game day traffic won't be too bad that early.

I'm sorry...I grew up going to Tech games..And living in Cumming, there are way too many Dawg fans!!

My friend found a couple other tix. Thanks though. If I find someone else, I'll let you know.

Have one at the Last Lap Tavern for me (if it's still there). Go VOLS (although my baby girl is a Dawg).

Wow. Got back at 2am this morning from Knoxville. What a tough loss.

I did get to meet up with Shastacles for a brief moment. Good guy.

Yes it was good to meet you! I thought it would be tougher with 100K plus in and around the stadium. Good game. Nice to see Tennessee finally play a complete game, its been about 6 years or more.

did all other volfans treat you and yours all right?
Link Posted: 10/7/2007 8:18:40 PM EST
For the most part the Vols fans weren't too bad. I expected it, afterall I was in Knoxville. I don't mind a little taunting especially after an ass whooping.

There were a couple of guys looking for touble when we were walking back from the stadium. They ended up finding it, courtesy of Knoxville PD.

Nothing compares to Baton Rouge and LSU when it comes to mean fans.
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 3:48:38 AM EST
Sorry you had to run into some local necks. I must say that in all the times I have worn my orange in Athens the only thing I received was a little good humor taunting. But then, UGA got all of my money!
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 3:53:05 AM EST
Apparently, the DAWGS themselves failed to show up!

I've had a little trouble at UGA. Not like what you would expect from Florida or LSU. LSU fans that come here are worse than when we went to UGA.

what a one sided game, and this after anticipated GA victory

kudos for Ainge. Stafford sux.

I honestly thought Stafford did ok, considering he had at least 2 vols in his face every throw, and our d-backs were covering so well. We didn't give him much.
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 8:23:31 AM EST
Georgia lost the war in the trenches. Tennessee's O and D line dominated the line of scrimmage. We could not put any pressure on Ainge so he was able to do what he does best. Stafford was getting chased around the backfield so he couldn't do much. Brown and Moreno didn't have holes to run through.

UGA got beat in every facet of the game.
