    Ooooh a worst 3? I didnt do that but I like it. My worst 3:

    - Jacksonville (old "stadium"). Now Im in no position to rip a stadium bc CSUs is pretty bad. But at least its a bad stadium....JU was literally a field with a BERM for its home stands and wood planks for visitors. Yes. No stadium. No metal bleachers. Nothing. Add in the biblical Armageddon of mosquitoes....does Duval County not spray at all??? And then the city. If you're into meth, strippers and tacky Jaguars gear then this is for you. Fans and players were really nice. They deserve better and have since gotten a really nice new stadium.

    - Austin Peay. Played here twice. Won and got the heck out. They have since renovated. But back then their "turf" was literally green carpet glued to concrete. It had 4 or 5 or so holes in it where you actually touched concrete. Shocked NCAA let it play. Clarksville. Meh. And they're named the Governors. Just reminds me of government. Just not a fun trip at all.

    - West Liberty State. So....CSU for some reason traveled to D2 WLSU in Wheeling WV. Why? I dont know. But my Lord....it was an experience. Rudest fans ever seen. Every stereotype of people in WV unfortunately was enforced. Halftime locker room was a baseball field, just sit on the grass. Had bottles of tobacco spit thrown at us. Wheeling seemed like everything was 10-15 years behind the rest of America. Still not sure how we ended up playing there. They were a scrappy D2 squad. We werent very good at all for D1 but we did win thank God because it was the only positive thing that weekend.
    Yeah our stadium is a dump. But your mama has season tickets.

    Worst? Easy, the last time NDSU played SDSU in Brookings. Fans were complete dickheads which was weird because I had been down there quite a few times prior to that and it was pretty good. There are a bunch of guys I work with that are SDSU grads and do a pretty nice tailgating thing but even the guys in that group (friends of theirs, not friends of mine) were assholes. Really negative vibe.

    Sat up in the top couple rows at about the 20 yard line with about 6 other Bison fans, all we heard was "**** the Bison" over and over again, lots of little kids around too, completely classless. They were still doing it when they were down by 3 TD's in the second quarter. Some Bison fans reported vandalism to tailgating rigs, I didn't see any of that but heard about it.

    I have never had a negative experience at any other away game.

    I really need to get out. The only two road FCS games I have been to are the two playoff games in Fargo. I only tailgated at the first one since the second game was so damn cold out. My experience at both games were positive. Tailgating was great the first game. Got invited in to some tents. Some good natured ribbing.

    All other road games I have been to are FBS.

    No excuses for that type of behavior. Nothing wrong with good natured fun between fan bases, but there are always idiots who take things too far. I hope if you come down this year, it is a complete turn around from what you say happened last time. However, I can see how this may sour you on gameday in Brookings.

    The way our conference is shaping up, I'd have to start a Top 3 airplane game experiences thread. It would be much easier if Delta started a SGF-MSP route, but Delta doesn't like us for some reason.
    The only untenable situation is the one you are in right now. Support the dissolution of football at Missouri State University.

    I think I have only been to 3 UNI FCS away games Drake, ISUr and WIU. All 3 were sort of sub-par. I wouldn't call any of them a great experience. Normal was a fun town after the game, but man their fans were pricks.

    Now hopefully next season I can make the trip to Missoula when UNI plays there.

    Alcorn's experience can be great or awful all depending on if they're fielding a good team or not. Lately "The Reservation" has been rocking!

    Was at McNeese for the playoff win a couple of years ago. The one yard line to punting game. Great atmosphere. Great fans. The only jerks were young drunk SHSU fans. Eat at Steamboat Bill's.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.
