A group of friends set up a tailgate on the G&OC golf course. We were pretty much in the middle. My observations... 1. about 40ish% were state supporters. 2. state supporters overall were fairly polite. 3. the course was 100% full to the brim with people. 4. the guinness beer tent was AWESOME. Girls dressed like slutty refs, good beer, leather furniture, lots of tailgating games. If we had not been with friends we would have spent way more time than a half hour there. 5. late games are not good for peoples' alcohol levels. By 2 several people had gone down hard. A group of girls ended up passed out by one next to the side door of our car, because they had been doing straight jager. My wife went to make sure they were alive and they stumbled off somewhere about 3. That was just one small story in sea of total drunkness. I have never been to mardi gras but it has to be like that. 6. people seemed overall happy. Even after what happened, Michigan fans weren't very mad, and the MSU people weren't nasty overmuch about it. 7. I sobbered up enough to drive to the motel, where at 7pm both yellow and blue cab Cos had a two hour wait. Our sneakers got a work out. 8. the crappers were so undernumbered that it was crazy. Some were literally full to the brim by 2pm. Charging $40 a carload is a lot, charging that much and not renting enough units for the women to pee is a rip-off. Boo to the G&OC.
