The reserved tailgating spots are 20 x 10 and we had to fight to get that. They were the same size as a parking space then they made it 20 x 9 and we reminded them that a tent is generally 10' wide then it went to 20 x 10.

The general public is supposed to tailgate in their parking spot and not supposedly allowed to be out of their space. Good luck with that and if enforced could cause some ill feelings. Yes we were all expected to tailgate in our own spots and our AD never thought people would tailgate in groups. I'm not even joking.

Something that should be so simple should not be made that difficult.

I just looked at the tailgating map. Whoever moved the students way over there is an idiot. They're using the old student tailgate area for bus/RV parking. Do we have enough buses/RVs to need such a large area for them? I don't think I've ever been way out where they put the students.

We all know who the idiot is. For all of those far-flung apologists out there, this is a prime example of the norm and unfortunatly not the exception.

I am so happy that we get to discuss parking lot issues.
Sure beats what we have done the last couple of years.
Was parking much of an issue in prior years?
I know, right?

The website which was updated in June says you can pay for an extra spot to tailgate next to your car in the regular parking area.

This was the initial layout. It's been changed since then, but should still be pretty close to whats shown.

Has anything been said about the NAS having its big green and gold canopy meet & greet near gate 3? In 2014 they had a couple of their events on campus (not at the game site) before the game.
