That's simply not true. I've been to every SEC stadium except for UArk. Every game I've been to I've dressed in Orange and Blue. I've never had an inkling of a problem. I can't remember the last time I've seen a fight at an SEC stadium. They just don't happen very often.
I've also been to half a dozen FSU games. I've never had any problems there either. I've seen a couple fights, but even at FSU/UF fights are rare.
On the other hand, I went to the Berlin game at the Orange Bowl. I went with a group that included my 70+ year old mother. Everywhere we went, we had little punks (scUM fans that had never sniffed the inside of a college classroom) coming up trying to start fights. One even got into the face of my mother.
I must have seen more than a dozen fights that night. It's was completely ridiculous. I have never seen a sporting event that even came close to the mayhem at that game.
For the record, I also went to the UF/scUM game at the Sugar Bowl. That game wasn't nearly as bad. I think it's because real scUM fans (actual alumni) attended the Sugar Bowl.
It's the non-alumni, uneducated, gang-banging punks that attend the Orange Bowl/Joe Robbie that completely ruin the scUM games in Miami. You can see them in the videos posted above. SEC teams and FSU may have similar punks at their games, but they're very rare. At scUM games, they're everywhere.
I won't be going when UF plays down here. I'd much rather watch the game on my television than deal with all those morons.
