So all I keep hearing is how ruthless LSU fans really are. I'm hearing that if I leave anything Gamecock on my car (even leaving my SC license plate on) that my car will be keyed and messed with. I'll be in a garnet suburban so I'm kind of screwed there. Does anyone have any insight on where to park, or any insight where other Carolina fans will be tailgating?
It is not that bad. I went last time we played there and Ill never forget it. Awesome trip. Yes you will be heckled by LSU fans of ALL ages ranging from 6 year olds to 60. Mostly just pointing and yelling "tiger bait". However, like most places, there were some very nice LSU fans. In fact a couple helped me find a wonderful spot right next to the stadium and even made sure our car was alright during the game. Bottom line, yes they have some rabid fans but also some very nice ones. Act normal and dont be a jerk and you will be fine. Have a great time!
Dude I live here and it's not anywhere near that bad. I guarantee you, you will be invited to at least 5 different tailgates as you walk through campus. Don't worry about your car.
Thanks. I figured it was being very exaggerated. Looking forward to getting out there.
Jump out of the car and punch the first tiger fan you see in the face. The rest will understand you mean business and likely leave you alone.... well unless its a former lsu qb
if u want u can hang with me and my bud andre!!! hes a blackbelt so im not 2 scared lol!!!! p message me if u want protection!!!!

This^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. Best summary and advice you can get IMO. If you act like an you're going to be treated like one. They're fans are intense and a bit crazy (yeah there's some sorry POS ones but we have those too), but my experience on my trip out there when Lou was HC and CJ was the QB was good minus the team getting mauled in the 2nd half . I'm looking forward to getting back there again this weekend.

34-17, 4-3, 7-1, 29-7, 34-13 ALL STOP!!! It's a GREAT TIME TO BE A GAMECOCK! Back 2 Back Natty's! DOMINATION By GAMECOCK NATION!
In 2002, I was more intimidated inside the stadium than outside. As others have said, walking to the stadium were calls of "TigerBait" and such; but then they would offer to feed you or hand you a beer (or bourbon). Inside the stadium, I have never felt more diminutive in any opposing stadium than I did that night. Between the smell of bourbon floating through the stadium to "Mike" being paraded literally a few feet from where I stood, to crowd noise like I had never heard before; I felt small. I've been to Neyland, the Swamp, Bryant-Denny, Sanford and that other Death Valley and nothing compared to that point to what LSU brought as a crowd. Now I think a few of our games have equaled that intimidation factor at this point. GA 2012, ALA 2010 to mention a couple. But be prepared for them to bring their "A" crowd for such a huge game. It will be an experience you never forget... I'm just glad we can now call the 'Brice one of the most feared places to play as well. It speaks well to the support of our fans and SEC football in general!!
Really great people outside the stadium-before and after.
Inside. You may get ice,cups and drinks thrown on you.
They threw beer bottles at our bus as we drove in. I was pushing someone in a wheelchair into the stadium, and they threw ice at her. They threw ice at everyone. Once they started winning (we led at halftime), they came to our section yelling obscenities and threats.
Loudest, drunkest, scariest stadium I've ever been in.
I've lived in New Orleans and am used to drunk people and drunk LSU fans. Nevertheless, I'm not sure I'd go back to that stadium.
We had a great experience in 2007. I feel like this year will be different though. Just speculatin'! I'll be there! Watch out!
I don't mind the taunting. I can take care of those situations accordingly. Seems like they go crazy even after they win. Wonder how they're going to react when they lose!
I've only been there once('94) and we beat them(LSU ended up 4-7 and fired their coach), but they are were nothing like UGA fans.
After Bennett beat UGA on the last play of the game in '93, I was literally trying to get out of there as fast as i could as I witnessed drunk obnoxious dawg fans keying USC cars and trying to overturn one.
You'll be ok, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to take down your flags to be safe.
I went in '07 and didn't have any issues. My car was perfectly fine. The fans engaged in some good-natured trash talk ("it's a long drive back to South Carolina!"), but that was the extent of it.
I had a far worse experience with a GA fan in Williams-Brice. The funniest part is it was at that Thursday night USC/Auburn game! He yelled trash talk to both teams' fans until he started a fight and they kicked him out. UGA lost to Vandy two days later.
