For those who went to the game yesterday......



Other than the loss, how was your experience?

How loud was the Swamp?

Where did you tailgate?

What bars/clubs/parties did you go to?

Where did you eat?

Go anywhere on campus?

How were Gator fans?

Gainesville Police?

Overall experience??

The Swamp's atmosphere was awesome. It solidified my belief that it is the second loudest stadium to Tiger Stadium in the SEC.

Tailgating sucked as usual there

Gator fans were fine to me. Ran into a couple a-holes but that happens everywhere. I've been to games at the swamp twice now and never really had a problem.

The jorts stereotypes are true. It was out of control on how many jorts I saw.

It was ok.

How loud was the Swamp?
I did not think it was loud at all. I went to the 2008 debacle and it was extremely loud then. Sat in the same location, so it couldnt be due to placement.

Where did you tailgate?
walked around, bar hopped

What bars/clubs/parties did you go to?
a bunch

Where did you eat?
Ale house, Dockside

Go anywhere on campus?
no

How were Gator fans?
Not bad at all. Had one run it with so old man with a perm after the game. Just walked away laughing

Gainesville Police?
had no run ins.

Overall experience??
rather weak. But ok. I had more fun visiting when there wasnt a game.

Got called a corn dog of course.

Listened to drunks inside the rest room at half time dog me out and say we got this just like the A&M game knowing LSU can't run an offense and we will comeback and win. Correct statment to say the least.

Went inside the F club and saw former alumni players and saw the 3 heisman trophies on display.

Enjoyed sitting with Gator fans in the shade once the sun went behind my back on the west side. Most of them were respectful and tolerated my little cheer for 6 measley points.

This my first SEC away game. Overall great experience. People could not have been nicer. No tailgating, just bar hopped along the street by the stadium. Went to Gator City, The Swamp and a few others. Ate shite around there (typical game day stuff).
The stadium was pretty cool, we were up at the top so we could tell it was loud, but didn't get the whole effect.
Police weren't a problem. Never had to deal with them.
Like I was telling a Gator fan, most people who have issues, bring it on themselves.

We will definitely return given the opportunity.

We had a great time. The Swamp is the loudest stadium I have ever been in and that includes Tiger Stadium. We watched games and hung out at Beef O Brady's before the game and went to the Dueling Piano Bar after the game. For the most part the Gator fans were great, we ran into a couple of drunk students after the piano bar closed that had a few words for us but nothing to bad. By far this was the best away game experience I have ever had and I have been to every SEC Venue.

re: For those who went to the game yesterday......


My first trip to Gainesville since 1988.
My tailgate group has been tailgating with a group of UF fans for a few years down there, so we hooked up with them and had a great time.

The first five coeds we saw in Gainesville completely put to shame the whole of Auburn University's female population. FACT. (Pics will be forthcoming...y'all know the drill).

The UF Cheerleaders stopped by our tailgate for a bit, which was awesome.

I didn't have any problems with opposing fans. They started the "corndog" chant, but who cares, I find corndogs to be delicious, so I made them aware that I didn't find it at all insulting! One douchebag UF guy kept calling the "seat police" about us standing on the benches. I called him a dick hole several times and continued to stand on the bench seat.
Buddy of mine who is about 6'3" got the typical "frick you you suck"from a much larger UF fan while walking out of the stadium, but my friend said "Let's take care of it outside" and the UF guy pussed out. True :csb:

UF guys were playing this weird drinking game involving a tree stump, nails, and a hammer. I was not too sure about wielding a hammer while consuming alcoholic beverages.

Overall a great time other than, you know.

Had a great time. Was hosted by gator fans. Tailgated at a house by the stadium, was real fun. Sat on 40 right behind LSU bench and was insanely loud.

A couple of shoulders from gator fans that I shook off. Overall great experience except for, well let's try to forget that....

ETA - a lot of fans boo'd our players when they got hurt. I thought it was pretty shitty. I can see how mob rule can take a life of its own without proper authority. I ignored it for my own good, but at one point I was fighting mad.

I posted this yesterday:

quote:

The fans really werent that bad either. I only got called a fig once. Was told "frick you" by what looked like a 13 year old girl. Walking to the game some frat star yelled "I wish I went to LSU so I'd have nothing to live for." Prophetic words in retrospect.


I didn't see many people doing the gator chomp thing to LSU fans. I really think that the Florida fans went into the game not really sure how they would do. They seemed kind of subdued. Then, when they won, they were really grateful.

Before the game, we parked in front of some women's center about a mile from the stadium. The guy running the place came up to me. He asked if I drove in from Louisiana. When I said yes, he shook my hand and said "Welcome to Gainesville." I thought that was pretty cool of him.

If your're such a weak willed nicotine addict that you can't stand going a few hours without your fix, then stay home and watch on TV. Good for UF for having a non-smoking campus. Intelligent people don't care to breathe in that poisonous shite.

Went to the Grog House on University before game. Gator tailgating was light but cleavage and implants everywhere.

Stadium was late to fill up. Hot as hell. I didn't think it was as loud as Auburn.

Gator fans were friendly and celebrated among themselves. Nothing like Ranters had warned.

PS. Florida is asking for trouble seating visitors students in middle of their students.

re: For those who went to the game yesterday......


This was my first ever trip to Gainesville and I can honestly say I had a blast(besides the loss of course). I was a little worried bc everyone and their mother told to watch out bc their fans are the worst in the SEC. Besides a few corn dog and gator bait chants everyone was really friendly and even got a few hope yall enjoy Gainesville from some fans.

Stadium was extremely loud but I agree with a previous poster that I thought Auburn was a tad louder. Tailgated some near sorority row. Very good looking girls around there. I got to say though the stereotype about jorts and hair jelled guidos does hold true there.

We went to gator city and the swamp both were pretty cool bars and the food at gator city wasn't bad either. I had no problems with the police what so ever.

Overall, I loved Gainesville and would definitely consider going back. The Swamp is a great atmosphere, not louder than tiger stadium by any means, but a great place to watch college football. I don't know maybe we got lucky and missed the obnoxious fans.

I sat in the west stands with the old folks so it was fine.

Gainesville still sucks and it was really freaking hot.

Your fans should not boo an injured player. Classless.

first time it was great, traffic was great in and out, people were friendly before and after i didnt think it was as loud as advertised and I did see many empty seats on the upper west side. Over all very benign place.

A Katrina reference was said at our group as we walked by some fans before the game, so that was nice.

But all in all. the fans weren't too bad.

re: For those who went to the game yesterday......


Ive been to 3 games in my life lsu,knoxville,and UF yesterday. I was expecting the worst after reading the board. Overall the Florida fans were nice. Not close to as hospitable as LSU fans or even Tennessee for that matter. I only saw a few meatheads Saturday night downtown that were yelling. In fairness I doubt they were students or alumni they looked like local losers up to no good.

Coeds were by far the highest quality Ive ever seen. Stadium was very loud and a great atmosphere but too damn hot. Its was terrible.

I was a little surprised that i saw very few LSU fans out and about on friday night. When I went to knoxville..LSU took over but yesterday their werent enough of them for my liking.

Had a blast. Great atmosphere in and out ofthe stadium. Was a little nervous about the fans, but i think the LSU fans giving out terrifying warnings are either terrible pussies or act like jackasses. The fans were all really nice (mostly interacted with older ones). At least 4 different fans told me how awesome their experiences in BR have been, and that they wantedto make sure I had a similar experience. Had amazing seats on the 30 yard line beh ind the UF bench and it was pretty loud in there. Went to The Swamp bar night before thegame. Lots of fine tail out and about. Tailgated at a house next to Emerson with a guy that is a lifetime member of the Alumni assoc. Good times. Will go back.
