First, congrats on clinching the SEC East title this year. Now on to business. Next year the Rebels will be traveling to Athens. Every year, a group of my buddies from Ole Miss and I take a trip to an away game. Just under a year from now we're going to make the journey to Athens. I've got a personal goal to see a game in every SEC town. I've seen games in Oxford, Nashville, Knoxville and Columbia, MO (pre-SEC, obviously). The SEC town I've most wanted to visit, though, is Athens. I've heard only good things about your fair hamlet.
Anyway, the point of this fan post is to ask those of you with knowledge of Athens to suggest accomodations. Preferably we'd like to stay near the bar scene, or the equivalent of the Square in Oxford. I don't know where that is though, so I don't know what hotels to look at. This may seem early, but if Athens is anything like Oxford I'd imagine that hotel rooms get snatched up pretty quickly.
We're really looking forward to rolling into Georgia next year and hopefully being competitive with a new coach (please be Mike Leach). Can't wait to tailgate in Athens and see a game in Sanford Stadium. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and Hotty Toddy.
