Tennessee Road Game

The hardest part about going to an away game is figuring out what your tailgate plans are.  Knoxville is a relatively easy three hour drive from Atlanta, four hour drive from Athens, and 25 years from both places.  Last I checked, there were some hotels a relatively short drive from Knoxvegas, keeping in mind that getting out of downtown there is like leaving Atlanta, but no mass transit, only one interstate and more donkey carts. 

Getting in shouldn't be that big of a deal with a 7pm kickoff.  There are some open tailgate options, with the best one I've seen being the Hedges2Hardwood's soire.  Contact them for more info.  They promise coozies. UGA's official spot will probably be the Knoxville Marriott.  It is also my experience that if you can get past the nasty orange, Tennessee fans are always happy to share their hooch. 

I mean moonshine.  Not their lady companions.  Gotta keep it in the family.

I think you were trying to make a point based on book written nearly 45 years ago. It is so hard to tell when you have use Western Union to telegraph messages to the Internet.

Knoxville is a great atmosphere for a game, I'm upset that I can't make it this year, but should be a great game.

Don't try to leave Knoxville immediately following the game. Find a place to eat(I recommend downtown grill and brewery) and leave a couple hours after the game. You won't lose much travel time and you won't have to stop to eat on the way back.
