North Campus tailgating revisited


Back in November of 2007, I posted the following:

The picture above was taken (not by me) after this years South Carolina game. Clearly the situation is getting far worse. It is time for this to be addressed and addressed forcefully. At least limit tailgating to 3 hours prior to kickoff, if not banning tailgating outright on North Campus. As I walked across North Campus on my way to work Monday morning it smelled like a cross between an outhouse and a garbage dump. As an alumnus ('81) and a father of two sons who are alumni ('06) I am ashamed and sickened by these 'fans' who trash our campus and literally use it as an outhouse. Go Dawgs indeed.....

It's got to be possible to prepare and/or consume food and beverage, including those alcoholic, without leaving behind such a mess.

I wasn't on North Campus for South Carolina's game, but I was there for just about every home game last year. Not to excuse anyone's messy behavior, but it seems like trash cans were definitely lacking... The ones that were there were all overflowing every game when there was still an hour or two until kickoff...
