Any bad experiences at College Football stadiums as a visiting fan?
What is the worst experience you've had as a visiting fan at any College Football stadium? It can include SEC, Non-SEC, or bowl games.

Excluding Clemson, the worst trip I've had by far is UCF in 2013. Their fans were confrontational before, during, and after the game. I've been to most stadiums in the SEC and never felt like I was in danger of getting in a fight, but the UCF fans were unbearable. Definitely started rooting against them from that point on.

Tiger stadium. Drunk lsu fans screaming at a group of A&M college kids. Followed them to their car. Needless to say a few country boy arse whippins were handed out.

LSU in 2012 was the best SEC road trip I've taken. Even though we lost it was a blast. Everyone has different experiences though.

Just from our standpoint, we try to bark at, spit at and knock little old grannies down stairs...so I would think Georgia would be a horrific trip for anybody. If you don't believe me just ask an Auburn fan. They'll tell in in short order.

I’ve honestly never had a bad experience anywhere.

As for all those stories, I think if you go in acting like an a-hole, you’ll be treated like one, no matter where you are.

Alabama 2011

The fans weren't really rude, as much as they were pathetic.

I've never seen so many grown men legit crying after a football game.

I've been to most stadiums and had great experiences at most. The only two experiences I would consider negative happened at Florida and Auburn. Even these weren't that big of deal. At Florida it was the police hassling us for having open containers on campus. At Auburn it was a group of what looked like Frat guys hassling visiting LSU fans on the way out after a loss. Other than that, I'd say you'd have to be looking for trouble to find it.

Still one of the loudest games I've been to in Tiger Stadium.

#9 LSU was coming off a tough loss to Florida and #3 USC had beaten the dog shite out of UGA the week before.

We had a lot of Gamecock fans at our tailgate, great people

Never had even close to a bad experience at Auburn. It's our favorite road trip. Old-school tradition and feel, friendly tailgates, fan-friendly in the stadium also...

2013 in Starkville.

Pretty laid back campus and places to eat and drink and hang out at on campus. Stadium was the opposite.

We sat in the upper deck about halfway up. I really thought the cowbells were kinda cool as it is an old college tradition.

Until...

I was reading the game program during the pregame warmups, and some numbskull decided to ring one RIGHT BEHIND MY FRICKING EAR.

What made this hayseed seem even MORE ignorant, is he reacted angrily when my head INVOLUNTARILY JERKED TO THE RIGHT AT 100 MILES PER HOUR when this sudden, loud CLANG blasted into my eardrum without warning.

Not realizing that human nature is to INVOLUNTARILY REACT when sudden LOUD NOISES are inflicted an INCH FROM YOUR EAR, this dumbass took it as an insult, and proceeded to KEEP UP the clanging for the whole first half!!

Needless to say, when the score got out of hand by then, they mysteriously disappeared....

Worst experience was 2012 South Carolina. Not the fans or the stadium. Fans before and after were awesome. But watching your team get so thoroughly dominated in such a great atmosphere makes it way worse.

I felt the same way visiting Florida in 2008. Way worse.

56-6 worse.

I haven't either outside some fights witnessed among college kids that had nothing to do with the fact their teams were playing a football game the following night.

bingo. Most people are just looking to have a good time and aren't trying to be dicks for no reason

Only bad experience I've had was at Ole Miss. A drunk, shaggy-haired frat boy decided to get up in my face yelling obscenities for no apparent reason.

I found Alabama fans to be the nicest. They were old though.

re: Any bad experiences at College Football stadiums as a visiting fan?
The only bad experience I've had with fans was at Mississippi State.

I've been to games at every SEC stadium except Texas A&M and Missouri.

I'm a pretty reserved and easy going guy, so you really need to go out of your way to have any kind of confrontation with me.
