The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
For anyone who will be heading to State College this weekend (or has traveled there in the past), where are the best places for the general public to park and tailgate?
I just saw that you can purchase a parking pass for the game ahead of time, but that deadline has already passed. Are there lots that anyone can park in where people can grill, toss around the football and enjoy themselves? Also, what time do lots usually open?
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
So... I'm going to UTL2 after being forced to miss UTL1*. For normal games, my family parks just south of the Kroger on industrial. But, for Notre Dame my brother-in-law and I are planning on borrowing an RV to tailgate properly. And, to tailgate properly, we're planning on going to either the Golf Course or Pioneer.
My question for those on the board more experienced with RV tailgating is: do I need to buy an RV pass for either the Golf Course or Pioneer, or can I just drive the RV to either location sufficiently early and expect to get in?
Unfortunately, online I can only find season RV passes for either the Golf Course or Pioneer - I cannot find a single game pass for either location. Thus, if I must buy a pass and cannot find one on Stubhub, am I already too late to acquire one?
Or, if I can just drive up, what time would the MGoBoard recommend I show up?
Essentially, any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. As you can guess, I've never personally tailgated at Michigan with an RV so I don't know all the ins-and-outs. Therefore, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
*I was the best man in a wedding... in Ohio... and all her family were Buckeyes. Still, I got to see the 4th quarter live so I can't complain too much.
Just secured some tickets for Saturday and now face the task of tailgating in enemy territory. I was at Northwestern which was very much like tailgating in AA as we were surrounded by tons of other U of M fans. I know this will not be the case in EL. This will be my first trip there .. so any advice from some experienced M fans that have been to Spartyland in the past ? My age alone prefers being away from the "student" areas as I really don't want to have some 18 year old's msu vomit all over my car that is obviously owned by a Michigan fan.
Is there a "favorite" lot for U of M fans? Thanks for the help ... and
Well it seems that UNC has it's own issues with players getting parking violations but they make tOSU's look like child's play...
North Carolina has released documents showing a group of North Carolina Tar Heels football players accumulated more than $13,000 in parking citations over a 3½-year period.
WTF?!?! 13 grand!!!!
I hate to do this, but need some local expertise from the MGoCommunity
My family will be travelling up to Michigan the weekend of the state game. We have a hotel for Friday night and plan to take my oldest kiddos around the campus and to their first Michigan game the next day. I’ve been looking online for tickets and 4 are generally running around $250-400 a-piece with some end zone seats going for $200. I’ve never had a problem finding tickets outside of the stadium before the game, but I certainly don’t want to run into a situation where we get there and can’t find anything. For the regular attenders, would you recommend waiting until game day to purchase tickets or in the wake of the success are the tickets that day in short supply? Is it any cheaper to wait?
Also, we traditionally parked by the radio broadcast booth next to Crisler Arena and with that space now closed for construction, would the next best place to go be the golf course or Pioneer High school?
Many thanks for the advice!!
