    Re: Anyone else going to Austin

    I'm going. Should be a large crew of us heading to the game. My cousin is trying to sleep w/a girl starting law school there this fall, so hopefully that will be a place to crash. A buddy of one of the guys that's going with me lives in Austin too, but he isn't sure how that guy's wife is going to feel about 8 drunks from Iowa sleeping on their floor.

    If all else fails, we'll get a hotel. We went to Baylor 2 years ago, and A&M last year, and got hotels for both of those trips.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This sounds like it could be a story out of "I Hope they Serve Beer in Hell" in the making.

    Re: Anyone else going to Austin

    What is tailgating like in Austin? Is it more Iowa State or Iowa. For example at Iowa State you can walk around and meet people and drink others alchohol. At Iowa it's so spread out and you kind of need to know someone at the party or your shunned.

    Re: Anyone else going to Austin

    My wife, son, and I already have our tickets lined up. We'll be coming over from our home in Plano (north Dallas). My wife's uncle has been a Texas season ticket holder for 30 years so we've got some pretty good seats, albeit in the midst of burnt orange.

    I'm looking forward to us upsetting Texas!!! This is one of those win/win kind of games - we're expected to lose big so it should be easy to beat expectations at the very least. But I'd like to see those expectations beaten to a pulp. It would sure make living in Texas a hell of a lot more liveable for a year or so of great bragging rights!

    I was present when we stuck A&M with their worst Kyle Field defeat in history. It's time to make the record books at Memorial Stadium!!!

    Who's with me?... let's make a toast with our Kool-Aid!

    Texas seemed pretty spread out but everyone seemed pretty nice when we were there last time around. At least until my brother (who was going to TAMU) showed up in TAMU gear. That kinda ended at that point.

    I was tailgating there for the tex tech game last year; It was the opposite of tailgating at ISU. Very commercial with a ton of sponsors, private areas, places with security and spread out amongst little parking lots and big parking garages all over the place. It dosnt have the fun hang out in the park feel that ISU has but we had fun regardless meeting up with some TT girls and hanging out all day. The weather should be awesome though so I cant wait to go back.

    The only Big 12 town worse than Manhattan is Waco. Well, Lubbock probably is too, but I haven't been there yet. Just going on what friends have told me about Lubbock (Tech fans will try to kill you apparently).

    I'm sure Manhattan is fun (people were nice) like Ames, but I just don't see it winning any awards for being a great small city, like Ames does.

    We went to A&M last year and Colo the year before. We are heading to Austin this year. Road trip for us 8, picking one up in Dallas, and have 2 down there! Can't wait!

    Indeed. The trip report will be up on Wide Right and Natty Light (last year's A&M report is up there). Should be entertaining.
