A Crimson Tide home game means a day of football and delicious dining but being new in Tuscaloosa can make the food choices a little daunting. Now that I have one full day of tailgating under my belt, I’ve been looking for the best places to eat in T-town on game day. I tweeted and talked to Tuscaloosa natives, UA students and Tide fans about where they choose to eat before kickoff.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Alabama’s football program has been awarded the 2011 Disney Spirit Award for the response of its players immediately following the April 27th storms. The award is given annually to college footballs most inspirational team. Crimson Tide junior Carson Tinker will accept the award on Alabama’s behalf. Tinker’s home was destroyed when an EF-4 tornado plowed through Tuscaloosa. His girlfriend, Ashley Harrison, was ejected from the home and found dead in a field across the street.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Fans were kicking Alabama’s kickers when they were down after they made only two of six field-goal attempts Saturday in a 9-6 overtime loss to LSU. When social media becomes unsocial, messages smack rather than soothe. And as some barbs weren’t falling short or drifting wide right, Crimson Tide punter Cody Mandell kicked back. “If you are a fan bashing Cade or Shelley shame on you,” he tweeted on Sunday. “Win as a team, (lose) as a team.”
The so-called Game of the Century (hey, it’s a young century) was actually a little bit of a yawner, even by supreme SEC over-defensively-schemed standards. Not much of the end zone did we see, unless it was an errant Tide kick landing short or astray like a winged AFLAC duck falling in the marsh. This game was more or less a Mexican standoff involving field goals, crazy-looking punts and uncharacteristic turnovers. Neither coach attempted a grasp for the other’s jugular. It was like a chess match played entirely with pawns. If it were a poker match, Alabama had one of a kind–Trent Richardson. LSU had two of a kind – ineffectual quarterbacks. The only saving grace for either was the full house – Bryant-Denny Stadium – showcasing the best of the SEC to a national audience.
TUSCALOOSA – In a 9-6 overtime game, four failed field goal attempts were an easy target as fans and pundits alike tried to assign cause for the University of Alabama’s loss to LSU Saturday. Kicker Cade Foster missed attempts from 44 and 50 yards in the first quarter, and after converting a 46-yarder in the third quarter, missed from 52 in overtime. Jeremy Shelley, who typically handles shorter field goals while Foster attempts longer tries, converted from 34 yards in the second quarter. Later in the game, Shelley attempted what would have been the longest field goal of his career – 49 yards – only to have it blocked.
The Alabama Crimson Tide fell to the LSU Tigers due in no small part to 4 missed field goals. That said a loss is a loss even when it is hardly deserved. Enjoy it while you can LSU. Sooner or later we will have our revenge. Nobody stays undefeated forever.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Tuscaloosa police arrested a total of 81 people during the Alabama-LSU game weekend, including 62 people in the Strip area. The TPD arrested 11 people in the downtown area and eight people inside the stadium.
