ND Night Game Tailgating Situation
For all of those mgobloggers headed to South Bend this weekend, the majority of M fans will likely be parking in the White Lot just north of the stadium for tailgating purposes. With that said, here's a bit of info...
This is a grass field, so charcoal grills are banned, but propane is ok. Shuttle service to the stadium is available since this lot is about 1.2 miles from the stadium.
Gates typically open at 7:30am, however, I'm awaiting a response from the ticket office on a confirmation of this since it's a 7:30pm kick. I've talked with several of you this past weekend in the Blue Lot and it sounds like most of us will be in the White Lot on Saturday. Please feel free to stop by and let's fire-up before the game. Just listen for me playing "The Victors" at the top of every hour and come enjoy a "pop" or two with the BLC.
Finally, the stadium does NOT have video replay boards because those are the work if the devil, so bring a mobile device for replay purposes. The field is also still covered in natural grass because it's only 2012 and this is the only way to slow Denard down so that their slow linebackers can keep contain. There are no plans of cutting it this week, so, that's always neat.
