That's Memphis

How can that be Memphis when the place was full of Hog fans.

I could go ahead and take a aMm in a Ziploc bag and bury it in the backyard to protect the king-in-waiting?
The ADEQ satellite will spot you and fine you for burying plastic and not possessing a USDA corn allotment.

I hope there's not a king in waiting.  ADG Sports needs some serious contrarian columns.  Reading them assists in voiding the GI tract in the morning.

The lack of concern of the employees, most were trying to take long breaks in the restrooms with heat.

General attitude of not giving a aMm= Memphis

When I think of wet games, that 2001 Tennessee game isn't far behind the Bama game the year before.
Band couldn't even stay out, so they piped the fight song through the speakers for the running through the A. I remember the entire crowd that was brave enough to stand out in the rain singing along loudly enough to the point that it sounded like we had just all sang on our own in unison. Really fricking cool.

That was also the first night of the south endzone. Security was overwhelmed and everyone and their daughter/uncle/grandpa were in the concourse of the indoor/outdoor club areas to stay dry and warm. It was shoulder to shoulder on both levels.

Multiple lightning delays... one that I was convinced was really just because you could barely stand up straight it was raining so heavily. Clusterfuck of a night, but one people always remember.

Remember it well.  I almost added it to the list, but most of the rain had already happened all day prior to the game.  By the time the game came, it was still raining somewhat, but it was the lightning and the delays.  One of those "weird" nights and a sparse crowd for ESPN game vs Tennessee.  Great game (and cover!) although it was like 13-3 or something.

And since we seem to have another theme of games where there were only like 6 people at the end, the 2003 Florida game was up there despite the great weather.  Yes, this was the "Bua game".  We were down something like 31-3 at half and the place just gutted.  Then, we staged a huge comeback and damn near came all the way back.  It was like a carnival experience for those of us still around.  At one point, I turned around and there was literally no one for 25 rows behind us.  Strange.

I know you all have been waiting with baited breath on my 2cents on this.  I have been a
Little Rock guy since childhood, coming here from the Delta when the speed limits were 55 and gas was about the same.  For the past twenty years or so I have thought that we as a program NEEdED little Rock games for many reasons, among them fan support and a winning atmosphere.


Now, this day, with this coaching staff, I say frick that aMm.  If BMFP wants to play them all on the motherfucking moon because he says it gives a better chance
To win, then I say buy a gotdammed space ship and save me
 A seat.

frick it, little rock should be happy with what ever scraps are thrown our way.  The university is in Fayetteville, frank had an interstate highway system built(complete with a fricking TUNNEL) to make it easier to get there.  I am in favor.

Move along, discussion over.
Regular guy.

That's me.

I was at both of those games, and at a lot of the games mentioned in this thread. 

I'll never forget going to the aMm game in Fayetteville toward the end of the '97 season.  It was in the afternoon on a pretty nice day, and there were maybe 30,000 people there at the start of the game, and that's probably being generous.

We won the game, but I just mostly remember it for how empty the stadium was.

Y'all really should think about items like this when trashing Mizzou and their attendance.
I know the situations are different and everything, but we've definitely been there before.

I was there for that one, too.  That was my senior year.  It was a gorgeous day and we were a 11 pt. dog (why I remember this aMm, I'll never know) and won straight up.  Student section was "ok", but like you said, the rest of the stadium was sparse at best.  And that was when we had "half" of the stadium we have now.

Well, since this thread is already derailed, I'll just mention the 2002 Troy State game in Little Rock: cold, windy, raining pretty much the entire game, and we played like ass. The final was 23-0 or something like that, but it took a couple of defensive/special teams TDs to get there.

I don't know what that has to do with RRS and Fayetteville, though.
We'll get that corrected at halftime...

I stayed in Marrs Electric's box suite for that one. On the walk up to the stadium some idiot TN fan in a jersey with Ice Man (I think their QB at the time had the nickname) on the back of it was talking aMm and got the Starkville beat out of him. We got em all separated and the dude just kept walking with a bad bloody nose, left a trail the whole way up. You could hear the group yelling "The Ice Man Cometh" all the way into the stadium. Of course they wound up winning and the guy talked aMm the whole way back.

I was a junior that year.  If I remember right, it was like opening weekend of deer season and we were playing our way through the end of a really bad year.  I think it was like the next-to-last game of the year.  It was a really, really nice day, though.   

I remember them selling student tickets for $1 per game that year just to try to get some students out there.  There was a LOT of apathy at that time in the fanbase, for good reason.

That was a pretty miserable weather day.  I was at that game, too.  Both DeMarcus Ware and Osi Umenyiora were on Troy's D-line in that game.

I was telling a guy I work with(he is from Kentucky) about this today at work.  He couldn't believe it.  He has beento a coupl of games during the earlier Nutt years and that's about it.  He was convinced I was lieing.

I remember they were selling them not just to students, but tO anyone with a state ID, and a friend of mine bought $20 worth.  We couldn't even get 20 people to go with us

I remember that. I used to have to pay fifteen bucks a ticket when I was a student.
