RE: Opinions from visiting fans.
Only made it to 2 Belt road games this year:

GaSo- I've made the trip to Statesboro many times and always enjoy the trip. Eagle fans are loud, boastfull, and a little irritating at times.....much like many App fans. We had a great time tailgating and had many good conversations with the passing Eagle fans. The game sucked this year but other than that no issues. Excellent crowd for a week night game, although no where near as many App fans as there would be for a Saturday game.

Troy- My first visit to Troy since the FCS Playoff game many moons ago. We were able to park very close to the stadium at a church school lot and tailgate (no way you park that close at App without a big Yosef donation). We had good conversations with the surrounding fans. At the time of the game both Troy and App had terrible records so much of the talk was that at least "someone had to win". Three App buddies and I were gifted tickets by a Troy alum as we were walking to the ticket window, a very generous gesture to visiting fans. It was a hot day and the $5 beers in the stadium were much appreciated. The stadium was more than half empty but is a nice venue. We were able to sit directly behind the App players benches and had a blast. Hopefully on my next trip both teams will have better records and there will be more fans and excitement in the stadium. Also, very easy to get back to the highway to Atlanta.

Texas State - beautiful stadium, surprised by the lackluster crowd. Tailgating was available near the stadium, which was nice. Really had very little run in with TXST fans.
South Alabama - surprised by the lack of support at this one too. The atmosphere felt dead most of the game, but it was not well played by either team so a casual fan would probably have been bored. The stadium was alright, I suppose, but that's not really under their control.

Did not go to NMSU. Of the OOC road trips, I most enjoyed Raleigh, but their fans were some of the rudest I've ever encountered.

Second worst crowd of the season behind the Tuesday night game. Fell on the hardest to sell weekend of the fall (lots of other festivals and stuff going on in the area) and the first home game after the UL blowout. Sucks you got that game but theres at least one every year. Hopefully, your next visit is more in line with a typical TXST crowd. Thanks for the props on the stadium.

I am hoping that in the next few years the Georgia Southern @ Texas State game will align with either the US Grand Prix at COTA, or the World Endurance Championship round at COTA.

I would love to see an Eagle Win on Saturday and a proper motor race on Sunday. and at a phenomenal venue like Circuit of the Americas no less.

Although It would not surprise me if the schedules were setup to keep that from happening.

YES! That's my dream trip too. Our game and the F1 race were only a week apart this year. If they coincide one year I'm going, no ifs, ands, or buts. I'm a big F1 fan.

I can attest to this. I went to the App/NC State game back in 2006.

State fans are breed of their own. They have to live in the shadow of UNC, so anyone that they think they are better than, they will let you know about it and treat you equal to their perception

State fans are the most down to earth in the ACC.


NC State fans are by far the worst I have ever dealt with. That includes OOC trips to LSU, Florida, Georgia, VT, & Michigan over the past few years.

agreed. I don't even get cussed at walking through the app tailgate, and multiple groups of tailgaters were shouting stuff at me and my fiancé that made me shake my head.

Traveling is what I miss most about the SBC and the great fishing, and at least 2 trips to the Gulf (USA & Troy) which we always spent the week leading up or after the games (football/basketball)

If you have the time and can afford it try to work out back to back road games and spend about 7 days on the road going to one and leaving there and work your way to the other...get to see the country and 2 football games. My personal choice if still in the SBC would be TXST and GSouthern for that trip if the schedule worked out that way. But that would be a 10 day trip.

Expedia is a great tool to use to save money if you don't mind last day planning... book with in 24rs of your stay and get a lot of 50% off really good rooms. We did that for our trip to Stony Brook NY last week and then Time Square for Thanksgiving and got 4 star hotels for 60% and 70% off. Truthfully I'm not really into the star system (recruiting or hotels) I just go for the best deals at clean hotels with good ratings and sometimes that's the 4 hotels

I laughed when I read your little stab at Jonesboro. You are bias and resentful because ASU went to the bowl game over WKU last year.

Hope WKU goes bowling this year and shows up with a good following. I was happy for them last weekend even though turds like you still troll this message board.

No need to reply, not trying to get into an argument that has already happened 1000 times. I just think it's funny that you can't let it go and you went out of your way to take a shot at Jonesboro and ASU.

BTW, nobody is raving about going to Bowling Green Kentucky. Most people think its in Ohio.

I saw something on Travel Channel or Food Network about Crawfish Town USA in Lafayette and have been wanting to travel there ever since. Is that place any good?

I only made it to two Sun Belt home games and the UAPB game and I was very impressed by the amount of people both Idaho and Ga Southern brought. I also introduced my high school friends to TXST football this season now that we're all out of school and they fell in love with everything, especially the girls, and now they wish they went to school at TXST and I wish I could go back lol.

Meh, it's ok, I guess. The best boiled crawfish are in Abbeville [about 15 miles South of Lafayette] at Cajun Claws or Richard's Seafood Patio.

Lots of other great places to eat in and around Lafayette. Just go on Ragin Pagin before you make the trip, and you will get an extensive list.

RE: Opinions from visiting fans.
I really look forward to traveling to USA / Mobile next year as I love the area and spent a lot of time there during the start-up of TK Steel. There is a group of us that make one long weekend football trip every year where we can play golf, fish (if available) and enjoy local dining. During the SoCon days, The Citadel in Charleston was the best road trip. I expect USA and ULL to be two of the best for our interests. I just hope they're scheduled later in the year as September games in AL and AR can be too damn hot.

Just a note to those planning on traveling to GaSo/Statesboro; you can plan a great long weekend at Hilton Head Island, SC or Savannah, GA. Both are within 90 minutes of Statesboro and have a combination of great golf, dining, fishing, historic sights and beaches.

I'm not taking a shot at Joneboro because of sports...

it's about like Bowling Green, 1992, with one difference well 2...

BG is a lot easier to drive to and we have Nashville with in a very short drive and Jonesboro has Memphis. It just not a fun trip to make or get to. I did enjoy seeing the boyhood home of Johnny Cash. I happen to like Memphis so that helped if we drove south first or went 80 miles out of our way going home...which we did one trip. As far a Bowling Green I've said it a number of times...stay in Nashville and drive up on game day..3 hours should be enough to see and do

But sports have nothing to do with my opinion about travel

RE: Opinions from visiting fans.
Only away game we went to this year was Tulsa.

Not a terrible drive from Austin, stayed with a friend in Dallas on Friday night. Their tailgating area was a really nice manicured lawn, but there was only about a hundred people out there. They put the TXST tailgate on the other side of the stadium. Thought they should have combined the two. Stadium was nice but not very big. Exciting OT game. Went out in Tulsa after the game. Stayed downtown. Good experience.

We are planning to go to more games next year (UH, FSU, ULL, and state). Had plenty of days off this year but couldn't afford to go to many games...next year I will definitely be able to afford to go but might not get the days off...life happens.

I went to the UTSA game.

I was not impressed. The first thing I was greeted with upon coming into town was a truck stop, a Bobcat dealer, and a liquor store. Also the miles of farms around didn't inspire a very cosmopolitan atmosphere either.

If Nashville is a very short drive then Statesboro might as well call itself Savannah and ya'll can stop complaining about it.

What in the world are you talking about...ya'll?

If a place is easy...just kind of easy to get to like a interstate or 4 lane highway and has interesting things to see or do (especially historical) I'm going to like it. Along those lines if a football game I'm going to is with in a few hours of a ocean...

I'm going there and going deep sea fishing. So I don't have a clue what you're talking about. I'm probably the only person that loves the Troy trip...

not for Troy but the beaches 2 hours away. Hell we have a game at Ole Miss a week from Saturday... and our only game between then is this Saturday. I'm leaving on Sunday heading to the Gulf, going fishing for 5 days before heading back home and a stop at Ole Miss.

As you can see if a place has good fishing I'm going to enjoy the trip or anything historical..but I love local history so basically any trip we take I'm going to find something I enjoy. A trip to Statesboro would be kind of ideal to me...with history and fishing all around with in a few hours drive

If a place is easy...just kind of easy to get to like a interstate or 4 lane highway and has interesting things to see or do (especially historical) I'm going to like it. Along those lines if a football game I'm going to is with in a few hours of a ocean...

I'm going there and going deep sea fishing. So I don't have a clue what you're talking about. I'm probably the only person that loves the Troy trip...

not for Troy but the beaches 2 hours away. Hell we have a game at Ole Miss a week from Saturday... and our only game between then is this Saturday. I'm leaving on Sunday heading to the Gulf, going fishing for 5 days before heading back home and a stop at Ole Miss.

As you can see if a place has good fishing I'm going to enjoy the trip or anything historical..but I love local history so basically any trip we take I'm going to find something I enjoy. A trip to Statesboro would be kind of ideal to me...with history and fishing all around with in a few hours drive

Ok you I have no problem with. Carry on :)

I laughed when I read your little stab at Jonesboro. You are bias and resentful because ASU went to the bowl game over WKU last year.

Hope WKU goes bowling this year and shows up with a good following. I was happy for them last weekend even though turds like you still troll this message board.

No need to reply, not trying to get into an argument that has already happened 1000 times. I just think it's funny that you can't let it go and you went out of your way to take a shot at Jonesboro and ASU.

BTW, nobody is raving about going to Bowling Green Kentucky. Most people think its in Ohio.

I'm not taking a shot at Joneboro because of sports...

it's about like Bowling Green, 1992, with one difference well 2...

BG is a lot easier to drive to and we have Nashville with in a very short drive and Jonesboro has Memphis. It just not a fun trip to make or get to. I did enjoy seeing the boyhood home of Johnny Cash. I happen to like Memphis so that helped if we drove south first or went 80 miles out of our way going home...which we did one trip. As far a Bowling Green I've said it a number of times...stay in Nashville and drive up on game day..3 hours should be enough to see and do

But sports have nothing to do with my opinion about travel

I went to the UTSA game.

I was not impressed. The first thing I was greeted with upon coming into town was a truck stop, a Bobcat dealer, and a liquor store. Also the miles of farms around didn't inspire a very cosmopolitan atmosphere either.

More like 45 minutes for excellent fishing and a touch more than an hour and your on Tybee Island beach.

Opinions from visiting fans.
I made three away games for Southern this year!

GA Tech. Great game day atmosphere around campus enjoyed being back in midtown Atl. Can't wait to go back in 2016.

Ga State I use to live in Atl and had season tickets to the Falcons. Not a big fan of the dome. Enjoyed the cold beer just didn't have that college feel to it around the stadium or in the game.

Last trip was to Annapolis for Navy game. Oh my what a great trip. Enjoyed the food and the architecture of the downtown. Took my son and nephews we had a ball. Enjoyed going to the campus and thought the game day atmosphere was unique. If you have a chance to play against them I suggest you make that trip.

I am looking forward to traveling to a lot of our away conference games in the coming years. I love Gulf Shores area so I can't wait to play USA again down there.


As many have said before me Statesboro doesn't have a lot to offer as far as the city itself and I hope that will change with improvements downtown. We make up for it with a beautiful campus and one of the best tailgate scenes you will find in football! Can't wait to host some of the schools we have coming our way next year.

Good luck in your bowl games win it for the conference. HailSouthern
