Happy to take in some refugees at our spot. Contact me at Frank at UMTailgate dot com. 90's theme this week. More food than you can imagine, and a friendly crew of about 50 die yards. Go Blue!

Ross-Ade's away team bleachers section is embarrassing. You are literally not allowed into the actual stadium. Port-o-pottys, limited concessions, and that damn train horn in your ear. However...I heard they tore them down in the offseason to make a beer garden. If that is indeed true, I'd like to hire their AD immediately.

08/06/2012 - 8:54pm It's a good plan but....

....that one time when Andre the Giant beat Hulk Hogan for the belt and surrendered the title to the Million Dollar Man they ended up vacating the title and had to have a tournament to decide the next WWF champion.

...that WANTS music in the stadium?

I agree. I don't think I could have handled three consecutive years of new signal callers.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how the Citrus Bowl has managed to keep the top spot all these years. The Outback Bowl is far superior from a fan's perspective. Those that have been to the Citrus know that it is a run down stadium in a run down area. The food is the leftovers from the Champs Sports Bowl, and it's questionable whether or not it has even been refrigerated in the week between the bowls. Flat out nasty.

The Outback is at a nearly new NFL stadium. Everything about it is, seat comfort, locale. You're still close enough to make the Disney trip if you have kids...AND you've got Mons Venus. Ybor, while somewhat falling apart over the years, has maintained a few decent bars, and they are still grouped together which makes for a decent "hopping" experience on New Year's Eve.

02/20/2009 - 11:38am That Illini Game

That 38-14 pasting of the Illini had a bit of a back story to it.

Illini coach Lou Tepper was interviewed earlier in that week, and was asked about the problems that Illinois would have matching up with Michigan. Lou said something to the effect that Illinois was better than Michigan and then gave the lockerroom quote of the decade, saying that "the only problem I have with Michigan is that we don't get to play them twice." At 19 years old and in living in the shadows of the Big House, I remember thinking about murdering Coach Lou.

The blowout resulted in a stellar cover page in Monday's Daily that simply said...

Goodnight, and sweet dreams.
