As a student resident at one of the state street houses popular for tailgating at, I'm pretty disappointed in the monitoring of tailgates so far this year by the city. Last week, the cops repeatedly asked my house, as well as all the others, to keep the music down to ridiculously low levels. Today, a few of the houses received e-mails warning us that the city was threatening to file a lawsuit against us if the tailgates continued to "get out of control". It was pretty vague, but they cited things such as high music levels, underage drinking, and crowds pouring into the street (come on, really?). I've been living here for two years, and this has never been a problem. Is there really anything the city could actually do? State street is a huge part of the game day experience for a lot of students, and it would be ridiculous if they actually pursued this.
