    So this weekend a buddy of mine who is a Miami grad and myself are roadtripping up to the Clemson - Miami game @ Clemson - Athens, GA lies directly along the drive back from Clemson to where we're starting the trip from, so I was thinking of maybe stopping over there after the Clemson game and giving CU some representation in UGA country for our game...does anyone know of any CU-friendly places to watch the game there?

    LOL... Y'all visit if you get a chance, I doubt there will be a lot of CU fans in Athens, but the Dawg fans will make you feel more than welcome. We have over 100 bar's & music venues in a 5 square block area along Broad St. along with many others. UGA fan's are some of the most hospitable fans you will encounter anywhere. What age range are you guys & what type of crowd are you looking for. I just hit 50 so the places I frequent might not be for you. I can get some suggestions from my kids if you are looking for a college type crowd. What ever type of atmosphere you are looking for you can find it in Athens...

    We're both mid-20's and I think we'd want a place, sports bar or something, that's not gonna get too rowdy or overcrowded or anything like that...if there was a place that was maybe a little off the beaten path in town where we could grab a seat at the bar without much difficulty, that'd be ideal...

    OK... This would be my suggestion, Lansdowne Pub. Just what you're looking for, easy to get to, great crowd & just 2 blocks off of Broad St. if y'all wanna wander over & get you're fill of UGA co-ed's. Josh & the folks are great. It will be busy but not elbow to elbow. Good pub food(disregard the menu on the site, they have more than 3 dishes...LOL), great beer selection. Prolly a 21 to 40 age range, locals, not a greek hangout....check out their facebook page too..

    I'm a Buff living in the ATL...and I have to concur...Georgia fans are some of the most hospitable fans around. Very gracious after handing us a last minute defeat in Athens a few years back. Having said that, hire Hawkins for 5 years and I bet you'll see some piss-bombs flying...

    Appreciate the tips, guys - we'll try to hit one of those places for sure - you guys were great to me when CU played @ UGA in 2006 - despite the outcome of the game, I had a lot of fun and UGA remains as my all-time favorite road trip so far...
