Post Tailgating?
Does anyone know what the rules are for claiming an area to tailgate? Do I have to register with the school? or Can I just set up anywhere as long as it's outside the taped off area? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

you can set up anywhere outside the taped off area. they should do away with the taped off middle or make it smaller. it is a waste of space. you might want to get their early if you want to tailgate of the student side. the homecoming game was full before 8am.

good luck.


it looks as if the alum side is improving.

You can park the RV on the Alumni side.

Tailgating is fun,but I hate it that the police walk around checking ID's and giving students tickets and check their bags coming into the game.This needs to stop.Who do I need to contact concerning this-We all need to write or call whoever. To me this is stupid-Why go to the game if the police are going to harass you.

Hmm, police officers checking IDs to deter underage drinking on campus property is harassment? They're doing their job, yes I've run into several jerks but if you're 21, they can't do anything to you unless you make a drunken fool of yourself, in which case maybe it's ok that somebody stops you from having anything else to drink. Also, the university has tailgating policies that need to be enforced (no kegs, etc) and someone has to do that job.

Site Determination. With regard to first-round, quarterfinal and semifinal sites, in addition to the criteria listed in Bylaw 31.1.3, the NCAA Division I Football Committee shall consider the following additional criteria when selecting playoff sites:
a. Prospective host institutions must submit the following minimum financial guarantees, which shall be 75 percent of the estimated net receipts as submitted on the proposed budget:
First round—$30,000
Quarterfinal—$40,000
Semifinal—$50,000
b. If the minimum financial guarantees are met, the committee will award the playoff sites to the top four seeded teams.
c. When determining host institutions for playoff games when both teams are unseeded, criteria shall apply as follows: (1) quality of facility, (2) revenue potential plus estimated net receipts, (3) attendance history and potential, (4) team’s performance (i.e., conference place finish, head-to-head results and number of Division I opponents), and (5) student-athlete well-being (e.g., travel, missed class time).
d. If a quarterfinal or semifinal playoff site is not available due to the fact the institutions involved did not submit a proposed budget, the committee will contact the institutions and offer the opportunity to submit a bid at the current round’s minimum financial guarantee level. If seeded teams are not involved, the committee will determine the host institutions by applying the championship site-selection criteria in Bylaw 31.1.3.2.1.
e. If no institution is willing to submit a proposed budget at the current level, the previous round’s minimum financial guarantee will be offered. If seeded teams are not involved, the committee will determine the host institutions by applying the championship site-selection criteria in Bylaw 31.1.3.2.1.
f. The committee will consider previous crowd-control measures and crowd behavior of the prospective host institution.

One word: liability.

Any university risk manager worth a hill of beans would require this.
