Last season my wife and I went to every USC game, home and away. That was a one time thing, so this year we didn't plan to do as many away games. Nonetheless, I went to Baton Rouge last weekend for the game. My wife stayed home, and a friend went instead.
We drove to Montgomery, Alabama on Thursday night and went into Baton Rouge on Friday. It was an uneventful drive, but on Friday morning in Montgomery we filled up with gas before heading out. While we were there a South Carolina fan was jumping a Kentucky fan's battery. The South Carolina fan had Lattimore written in large letters across the back of his shirt. The Kentucky people were thanking him and telling him how talented his son is, so I'm guessing it was Marcus's parents doing a good deed.
After checking into our hotel we went into town to check out campus and the city itself. The whole area is reminiscent of Florida, not the University so much but state. There are large, spreading trees almost everywhere which makes it difficult to take it all in at once. Many of the buildings on campus appear to have a Spanish influence which helps contribute to the Florida feel. no comments
