    Anyone going to the Tennessee game in December? My wife and I are seriously considering a trip? We haven't decided if we are flying or driving yet...

    I'm not going to that game, but thought I'd piggy back this in this thread.

    I know Tennessee lost today, but watching the highlights..... it is unreal the way Tennessee receivers always get so wide open.

    It's ridiculous the attention teams pay to CJ2K.

    I was seriously thinking about it, but, after tonight not sure I'm going to any OOT games. Just not paying hard earned bucks to see our boys get their asses kicked on the road.


    It's not the loss that hurts, it's the WAY we lose! Fisher has always out coached us, and I don't see this year being any different.

    Hell, I'd go just to go back to Nashville.... we make fun of them enough, but it's a nice place.

    But not this year unfortunately.

    Wife and I are celebrating our 15th Wedding anniversary on New Years, but can’t get away for travel that weekend so she and I decided to take a road trip to Nashville for the game. So we will be there!!!! Glad to see some friendly faces will be there too!

    We are going! Any suggestions on seats? Which side of the stadium should I sit on?

    Last year I was in the north corner, visitor's sideline (106). There'll be the usual brats, but nothing worth calling security/punching someone over... and I met someone at the game, really nice guy and his wife, about JB's age, we still chat every so-often.

    *Also, if anyone drives (granted, I went in Sept, this is Dec), the Natchez Trace Parkway is a really nice way to travel through northern MS and TN.

    We are driving and plan on taking that route...just curious to what the weather will be like.

    Anyone know if 5th row behind the visitor bench is "too low"? Is it high enough to see most of the field between the 40s or will the players block the view up to the line? I understand I won't be able to see the near sidline, but I'm curious if I'll be albe to see the near hashmark? I've been an "endzoner" my entire Oiler/Texan life so I have no idea what to expect from the side line that low. Kind of like Nascar (TMS), to see 85% of the track you need to be up about row 50.

    Not trying to be a smartass, but here's the seating chart for LP Field.

    I've looked there! I am talking about how the sun hits the stadium. I have a severe sensitivity to light, so I prefer to have the sun to my back if at all possible. I think that means sitting on the side closest to the Cumberland River.

    You are probably right since that would be the West side. The is lower in the southern sky now, and since the time changed it wil be an hour further towards the western sky and past being in your face or directly above. I would think you'd be fine anywhere from the south endzone on around to the west side where you mentioned. Never been there myself, just going by what I would believe to be correct considering the layout of the field. Down low on the west side, you might even be in the shade at some point in the second half.

    If you're on the west side the sun will be gone about 15-30 minutes after kickoff in December.

    We'd love for you to join us tailgating! If you need any help or suggestions for things to do, please feel free to ask or read through some of the threads in Tana's forum.

    Nashville's climatology is 48/31 with little to no snow, and this winter should be near-normal for central TN. I'll get better climate predictions first of DEC.

    I was in the corner, walked down to the front rows pre-game, it looked like it should be high enough to get a good view of midfield.

    I have decided that I will not spend a dime on travel for a team that cannot win
