5.) jimmyd getting the shit kicked out of him by some Sooner fans.
August 29th, 2013 06:39 PM
I doubt jimmyd will be at the game, or that he could be admitted at ND. Just an underemployed burnout posting from his parents basement.

Someday I will tell you guys the sordid story of my last sordid trip through Chicago and on to South Bend...............cops, hookers, video cameras, white sox, snobbish ND professors, five dollar tickets on the 40 , etc. The video camera was on in the truck from Chi. to SB and nobody knew.............evidence, oh the evidence. all audio of course, Started watching at home with the wife and had a unforseen electronic glitch to get it shut off. bwahahaha.........kids say the darndest tthings.
August 29th, 2013 11:50 PM
Sounds like a party.. Are you complaining?
September 3rd, 2013 03:03 PM
So has OU sent out tickets yet?
September 3rd, 2013 03:13 PM
i called and asked today ... ticket office said they will mail them the end of this week
September 3rd, 2013 03:53 PM
I'm not sure GA3 will be the starter by the end of the month. Amir is looking good as well as the freshman.
September 3rd, 2013 04:47 PM
Who has the scoop on tailgating and or other OU get togethers? I'll be there with the wife and we are both excited for the vacation/trip.

Section 118. Decorative with ND crap. I'm ready.
September 6th, 2013 11:25 AM
It was supposed to be "freshmEn", i.e. plural. as in Greg Bryant and Tarean Folston.
September 12th, 2013 06:39 PM
I am selling my single tickets so I can buy a pair. If you're interested check out the ticket forum on here.
September 16th, 2013 11:34 AM
bump. i'm freaking pumped about this trip. premature? maybe. it's time for you people to get amped too.
September 16th, 2013 12:04 PM
I'm pumped as well. my trip for this starts tomorrow. I talked about it earlier in the thread but 2 weeks between chicago, sandusky(cedar point), Niagara falls, south bend. Super stoked.
September 16th, 2013 12:15 PM
I'm jealous. I am headed to San Fran tomorrow-Saturday... Then back in Dallas till Friday. Pumped for Chi/South Bend. Still looking for a ticket if someone wants to help me out

Weather forecast for Saturday's game at South Bend: Mostly sunny, with a high near 77.
Chicago's weather: 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 75.
Who's parking where at ND?
September 22nd, 2013 11:36 AM
September 22nd, 2013 11:52 AM
If you drive there in a 4x4.....just park in the reflecting pool.

September 22nd, 2013 12:11 PM
I'm going to try the golf course. But, if I get there early enough, try some free street parking off campus, near the K lot.
September 22nd, 2013 01:00 PM
What is the estimate on how many sooner fans will be in the stadium?
September 22nd, 2013 01:13 PM
Don't know but I will be there, early, loud and late. I hope all of our fans bring it. Last year they pissed in our post-toasties and I'm angry about it.

Be loud and proud.^
Wish I was going.
September 22nd, 2013 02:29 PM
I think the bye week is big for Oklahoma. In fact, we have byes before our three biggest games, Notre Dame, Baylor, and OSU. We play Kansas before Texas Tech, so that's effectively another bye!
September 22nd, 2013 02:32 PM
10K plus. ND likes to put visitors high up in the endzone out of the way. But there should be plenty of Crimson there to make our presence felt.
September 22nd, 2013 02:34 PM
Actually "bye" is probably a little tougher than Kansas.
September 23rd, 2013 08:30 AM
Section 18 row 39 lower bowl........ im going to the golf course be there when they open at 8 am anyone else going to the golf course to tailgate.....BOOMER SOONER
September 23rd, 2013 09:44 AM

The wife and I are new Chicago residents and are considering driving down to South Bend on Saturday morning (no tickets...yet). We would love to meet up and tailgate with some other Sooner alums before, during (if we remain ticketless) and after the game. Of course we would be happy to pitch in/bring some of our own food, etc. to share in the Sooner experience. After being in Boston for the past few years its nice to have a Sooner game somewhat close to home for a change. Looking forward to seeing a 4-0 start to the season.
September 23rd, 2013 11:28 AM
The golf course requires you have tickets to the game to get in. Also, if it is raining, they will not open the golf course for parking.
September 23rd, 2013 11:47 AM
well the golf course is quite close to walk and tour the campus and i have my tickets so i can get in.....But i ve never been to notre dame so idk what the best tailgating place is......white field is a option you just take a shuttle to the stadium and then back after the game..
September 23rd, 2013 02:37 PM
I too would like to know the best spots to park (on the cheap, if possible).
September 23rd, 2013 02:39 PM
I did some googling on my own, found this: http://gameday.nd.edu/campus/parking/
September 23rd, 2013 06:23 PM
Best tailgates are in the lots just south of the stadium. The C-lot. I don't know of any OU tailgates scheduled to be there.
South Bend bars:
The Backer - dive bar that is always crowded on game weekends (technically the Linebacker Lounge?)
Mulligans - another dive, less busy, nothing special
O'Rourke's - right on the edge of campus, nothing special, decent spot to watch a game in the day/evening
Brother's - just south of campus - popular spot for bros and the general party crowd, good spot to watch games until the party crowd comes out
Finnie's (technically Finnegans or the Blarney Stone) - dive bar, cash cover, can get packed after midnight, come drunk and leave drunker
Corby's - was in Rudy, indoors and outdoors, a bit of a dive bar but cleaner than the other dive bars
September 23rd, 2013 07:08 PM
Most of that is my kinda place. Thanks for the intel.
September 23rd, 2013 07:44 PM
Any must try places to eat in the SB area?
September 23rd, 2013 10:42 PM
I liked Fiddler's Hearth, which is actually trying to be Irish food and is pretty good (I've never been to Ireland so I can't say how authentic it is). It can be tough to get a seat, as it is a popular spot on gameday weekends. Brunch is good, too, even for lunch or dinner but is not available after 5 pm on Fri/Sat. It is pub style seating. I liked the boxty, the fish & chips is solid.
Fine dining I would say Corndance in Mishawaka (about 10 minutes east of campus). The Peruvian pork ham hock was one of the best meals I ever ate. The Sword of John Adams is supposed to be excellent as well, it is a mix of meat and veggies on a sword. They also have a chicken and waffles on a sword. I want to say these meals run about $30 but it was worth it.
Mexican and BBQ in the midwest is to be avoided in my experience.
People say CJs downtown has a good burger but I think it was better before the new location. Rocco's is a popular local pizza place, between campus and downtown. JW Chen's is a pretty good Chinese/Asian place where the owner comes to greet you and can make some custom meals. Cambodian Thai is good Asian food but seating is very limited so I got it to go.
Brother's, O'Rourke's, and Between the Buns are all decent sports bars but nothing special food-wise. I never cared for Legend's, the on campus sports bar, as it is overpriced and service is always slow. I recommend avoiding it. It also has some weird booze policies due to campus rules.
Nick's Patio is the place for post-bar breakfast food. I have never been there sober but it's been a good close to some memorable nights.
Anyone out in Mishawaka/Granger I'd say Uptown Kitchen is a good breakfast spot, and Soho is solid sushi. Aladdin's eatery was good Mediterranean but I never really eat Mediterranean so what do I know. Granite City Brewery was solid for a burger or other American food.

I would add that South Bend bars are open til 3 am. People generally pregame 9 to 11 or 12 then hit the bars.
Also, Mulligan's would do country night on Fridays. I am not sure if that's still going on but it was this spring.
Indiana alcohol laws: Cold beer is sold at liquor stores only, along with liquor and wine. Grocery stores sells warm beer, wine, and liquor. Gas stations sell warm beer. Liquor stores are open late - closing from 11 pm to 1 am, it varies based on the store. They are closed on Sundays.
September 24th, 2013 01:04 AM
Hope you all enjoy your return to The Bend. It should be a great sequel to last year.
For classic American dining, popular choices are La Salle Grille, and the Tippecannoe.
September 24th, 2013 06:46 PM
Bought a new hat for the game.
September 24th, 2013 07:42 PM
I have that one. "Hang half a hundred on em"!!
