Bearcat Tailgater Sugar Bowl Guide

THE BEARCAT TAILGATER SUGAR BOWL GUIDE! SEE YOU IN NOLA!

FLYING IN TO NEW ORLEAN'S LOUIS ARMSTRONG AIRPORT?
Taxi's have a flat rate to downtown/the French Quarter $28 for one or two, or $14 each for 3 or 4 people. The on-site airport shuttle is $13 each way. Limos are $35 . It is not necessary to rent a car in New Orleans unless you plan on using it to tailgate. For the most part you can walk and take public transportation everywhere you need to go. Make sure to bring a comfortable pair of shoes.
WHERE SHOULD WE TAILGATE?
This is a very good question. There isn't much of a tailgate atmosphere in New Orleans because of all the bars within short walking distance to the Stadium. If you are set on tailgating, Bearcat Tailgater recommends tailgating in the parking lot located at 1001 Loyola Ave. ($20 per parking spot). You may also try one of the garages surrounding the stadium but you may have some limitations if you plan on grilling. The closest RV lot is French Quarter RV Resort which is about a 25 minute walk to the stadium. Last we checked rates were $199 per night with a two night minimum. All in all New Orleans is just like one Big Tailgate...there is no open container policy and public intoxication and nudity is widely accepted.

THE BOURBON STREET BARS?
Bourbon Street is like Disney World for Adults - tons of bars with very few rules. Don't expect to hear the bartender yell "Last Call" as the bars close when people leave. It is perfectly legal to drink on the street and if you leave one bar to head to another just ask for a plastic to-go cup. Whether its drinking a Hurricane at the World Famous Pat O'briens or singing a little karaoke at the Cats Meow , Bourbon St. has it all. We recommend visiting the Pub Club Bourbon St. Bar Guide for everything you need to know about the Bars on Bourbon St.



BEST PIECE OF ADVICE
Bourbon St. bars have 3-for-1 drinks from 4 - 7 pm every day.... including Weekends, New Years and Game Day!

DRESS-This one is for the ladies
Think Casually Wild and don't forget to wear your Bearcat gear.

NEW YEARS EVE IN THE BIG EASY?
Pub Club rates New Orleans as the #1 destination for NYE. Click Here for Pub Club's NYE in the Big Easy Guide. We'll be hanging out on a balcony on Bourbon St. Just look for the inflatable Bearcat (if he fits) and the Bearcat Beer Bong that will extend to the street.
WHAT EVENTS ARE PLANNED FOR CINCINNATI FANS?
There are tons of events planned for Bearcat Fans including free concerts, pep rally's, happy hours, etc. CLICK HERE for a complete line-up of UC related events in New Orleans. Special thanks to the UC Alumni Association for your hard work and planning! Go Bearcats!

How to spot a Gator Fan in New Orleans...

Just look for the always trendy Florida Gator +Jorts (Jean Shorts). Apparently this is the running joke in the SEC started by Georgia fans. There is a web-site titled Gators Wear Jean Shorts dedicated to the topic. Even Oklahoma Oklahoma had fans in Miami last year with a dry-erase board counting Gator fans wearing jean shorts. CLICK HERE to read Florida's side of the story in The Real Story Behind "Gators Wear Jean Shorts" from GatorTailgating.com.

I left a few photos of what we can expect in New Orleans!

New UC Coach: Butch Jones

According to BearcatLair Butch Jones will be named the new head football coach of the Cincinnati Bearcats. Jones compiled a 26-13 record in three years at CMU and two MAC championships. This season proved to be the Chippewas strongest year with an 11-2 record and a big win over the Michigan St. Spartans.

The Chippewas ranked 17th in the nation in scoring and 14th in the nation in scoring defense making them one of the more balanced football teams in the country.

Cure for the BK2ND Virus????

As the BK2ND virus continues to spread faster than the swine flu in a sorority house, Bearcat Nation is desperately seeking a cure. Will it come tonight at the football banquet? If not, Dr. NeumannKy is setting up a special clinic tonight in U.S. Bank Arena where symptoms can be temporarily relieved by watching the Bearcats Hoops squad lay the wood down on the Miami Redchickens!

In other news: In just over 3 days and 1 hour of public sale, UC has SOLD OUT its allotment of Sugar Bowl tickets! How is that for showing what Bearcat Nation is made of! Take that Dantonio!

WARNING: BK2ND Virus Outbreak!

Over the past several days a mysterious virus has been running rampant in the Tri-State area, spreading faster than the legs of a Vegas cocktail waitress when Tiger Woods is in town! Symptoms of the virus include sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and constant urges to check facebook, twitter, rumor blogs and websites for updates on University of Cincinnati Football coach (for now) Brian Kelly's coaching future. Dr. NeumannKy, who specializes in the study of highly infectious diseases, has isolated a single strain who's scientific name is the BK2ND virus or more commonly knows as the Kelly Flu (to South Bend).

No form of modern medicine has been able to cure those who fall victem to the BK2ND virus. Fortunately Dr. NeumannKy prescribes a Xavier Musketeer tour of the Bearcat woodshed administered by your #19 (and rising) Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball team!

Seriously, remember, we were a basketball school before a football school. No reputation or tradition building necessary. I love football and I hope we can continue to perform at such a high level but we are an infant when it comes to NCAA football tradition and our conference is viewed the same way. I would rather lose a great coach during the infant stage of our football program than lose a legendary coach at our tradition rich basketball program due to the ego of a dirty she devil. We have a #3 ranked football team preparing to play in the Sugar Bowl and a top 20 basketball team that's poised to spank the cross town rival this weekend. If we lose BK we will move on and we will continue to have much to root and be thankful for.

Bearcat Tailgater at Pitt Details

Alright Bearcat Fans...it all come down to this. Our Bearcats finish the regular season on Saturday with a chance for an undefeated season, a Big East Championship, a BCS Bowl Bid and potentially an opportunity to play for a National Championship. Does it get any bigger than this?

Bearcat Tailgater is taking the Ultimate Tailgate Trailer on the road for the best Tailgate Party of the year! We plan on arriving at the "Ice Cream" Lot at 7:30am and hope to be set-up by 8am. I have included a map of our tailgate lot below. Parking in the Ice Cream lot is $30 per car. I am told that this is a big Tailgate Lot and you must arrive early. If you are looking for other places to park please visit http://www.ppgpublicparking.com/ and click on the map on the right. It is our hope that we can fill the Ice Cream Lot with Bearcat Fans. Now... for details on the Tailgate!

The Bar will be stocked with 3 kegs of Ice Cold Hudy Delight, a bloody mary bar, mimosa bar, and a couple extra handles of Liquor for your mixed drink of choice. We will be serving Brats, Mets, Dogs, Burgers and Chili. Feel free to bring something if you feel you can add to the tailgate menu. As always, everyone is welcome to join our tailgate and donations are greatly appreciated. We are trying to get an idea of what type of crowd we may have.

Please leave a comment below with how many people are coming in your group or shoot me an email at bearcattailgater@gmail.com so we can plan accordingly. I'll see you bright and early Saturday Morning! Go Cats!!

The Wannstache

Pitt football Coach Dave Wannstedt may be more famous for his mustache (The Wannstache) than his football coaching abilities. The Urban Dictionary defines the Wannstache as "The Mustache that Dave Wannstedt, head coach of the Pitt Panther football team, sports on his mug. It closely resembles a Portsache or a 1970's mustache similar to a 1970's pornstar." This famous mustache has its own web-site , The Fighting Wannstaches.....and if that wasn't enough you can follow the Wannstache on Twitter. This just could be the most famous mustache in College Football but is it the most famous mustache in sports? You decide...
