RE: Football Tailgating Discusssion
They said we will have to lock down our season parking passes (which is now extra) and plan accordingly with our groups. Looks like we have to fend for ourself in the season parking pass area. That should turn out well with the Parking Nazis. :-/

Looks like they left off the tailgating section on the new map released today. I messaged them and was told we can tailgate in any parking area. Looks like someone didn't think this through in our AD. SMDH.

There is this on the map page.... The Blazer Walk will also be located closer to the tailgate area.

That map looks all messed up in relation to where Blazer Village used to be,
The scholly parking areas look about the same I guess Tailgating will be a problem to be addressed soon, I hope, by the Athletic Dept or whoever created the map.

RE: Football Tailgating Discusssion
If its first come first serve, we just need to have someone with 6 passes get there 4 hours prior to kickoff (if thats still when gates will open) and claim a 3x2 rectangle of spaces. Should be doable, but short sighted by the AD's office and a pita for us.

Don't forget you will have to buy two parking spaces for the season if you expect to park and tailgate unless you park somewhere else of course............... :-/

How can anyone overlook something so obvious? On traditional campuses (with OCS) they have tailgating on greens... Maybe he/she forget where they now work. Wait... there are only a few people working in the Ath Department that wasn't around the last time we had football... hmmm.

RE: Football Tailgating Discusssion
If I'm cooking I'm normally there early enough that no one is there except for people like Greenhouse etc who're also tailgating. Unless they step forward with some kind of tailgating plan, it looks like there'll be many battles over getting enough space for tailgate set up on gameday.


IMO someone took the easy way out of not having to deal with it so as to get it off their plate of responsibilities.

Why on earth is there student parking? UAB has a fleet of buses. they should encourage everyone they can to park on campus and ride to the game

Maybe, but the AD is "strongwilled" and resistant to change his ideas.

Called in about another parking issue, looks as if they will be addressing all "oversights" at their weekly meeting.

I am communicating with UAB and it is being addressed. Also looking at estaablishing an open line of communication with them.

I think the end result will be good.

It just doesn't make sense to eliminate selling spaces for tailgating at $95 (or more) for the season while selling those same spaces for parking for $48 per season.

They will be "losing" at least $47 on every "normal" space used for tailgating purposes. You'd think with the nickel and diming going on right now, they would be all for making almost double (or more) on these spaces. 01-wingedeagle

Do they have you locked in a room somewhere? Blink twice if you need help.
