a terrible blight on our fine country

I have a question about tailgating and getting the game on tv. My plan this year is to go to all home games, but only actually go into maybe one or two games. The rest I plan to just tailgate and watch the games on tv.
Now I know that the Oregon State game is on ABC, as well as others may be throughout the course of the year. For the games on local channels, I plan on just using a Digital Antenna. Has anyone had any success / problems using digital antenna receivers at the game? (such as not being able to get anything to come in, or only a few specific channels come in)
My other question is about using Dish Network. I have DIsh at home already, and would like to take it with me to the game for times when they are on ESPN, FS1, etc. So far, I have researched it and it seems you either need to buy the "Tailg8er" or whatever it is, for some $300+. Or I also beleive you can buy a portable dish that receives HD, that sets itself up once installed for around $200. Basically I'm completely new to all of this, and I'm obviously looking to spend the least amount of money possible, but I don't want to sacrifice HD. Any advice and information is extremely helpful and I appraciate it!
By the way - I will be tailgating at the golf course all year.
Somehow I missed this (we may have to remove the 'historian' from my name) but this past Wednesday was the 20 year anniversary of Dreisbach to Hayes against Virginia...
Yes, I'm sure you have the same reaction as me. How the hell has it been 20 years?
Brief article here in the LA Times on class of 2016 Michigan QB recruit Victor Viramontes.
Norco is located near Riverside, CA (a.k.a. Inland Empire). Viramontes first game is tonight vs. Etiwada. He'll be playing QB and apparently LB as well.
Norco roster here. Viramontes wear's No. 10. Check out the positions he plays. Sheesh!
Not a complete shock, since this kid is now 6-2, 230 lbs!!:
Norco is looking forward to giving the Huskies some competition, and the Cougars have one of the best quarterbacks on the West Coast in Victor Viramontes.
"Victor is the ultimate leader. When it comes to competition, he leads by example," Coach Chuck Chastain said.
Bound for Michigan, Viramontes is a passer and runner. He's also going to play some defense this season.Norco was impressive in summer seven on seven passing competitions with its skill-position players.
No. 4 Michigan (10-1) vs. No. 13 Washington (7-4).
The game was just posted on Youtube tonight.
My childhood was wrecked at the 1:58:19 mark by UW LB Michael Jackson.
Michigan was down 7-27 in the 3rd quarter, but almost pulled off the win with 1:28 left.
