Speaking of which, why don't you research some tailgating spots in and around campus and set something up?

Hell if I knew anything about Alabama or LSU or Auburn or Florida or Tennessee but I set up hugh jazz tailgates at all those places over the years for people to gather at.  I trust you can contact the right people or find some CSU grads who know a thing or two about it.  You're only 60 miles away.  Or whatever.

Maybe you can serve shitty chicken tenders and queso.

Well, there's this I received from the ticket office at CSU:

Hi Rick,

We are excited to have you and your friends attend the game in September! Unfortunately, all of our on campus tailgating lots are sold out on a season basis. The day-of-game lot off of Prospect Road does not allow tailgating, and is just solely for parking. If you are looking to tailgate, we suggest finding a lot off of campus where you could set up your tailgate.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to hosting Arkansas in the fall!

Thanks, and Go Rams!

Looks like you're running point on this now.

Good luck. We're all counting on you.

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

We just need to find a spot in the red area.  The yellow area is campus.  The stadium doesn't show up in the satellite view because it just was finished being built last year.  I circled where it is.

How many do they have, like 2?  CSU can't have that many season ticket holders. 

And it's nice to see a school be strict on tailgating in a state that lets you smoke pot anywhere you want.

It is a long shot; but, I worked with a CSU graduate a couple of years ago.  He has moved on.  I will try to contact him and pick his brain.  How many  WOOPIGGERS will be there?  12 or so?

Hopefully, he knows someone who owns a farm close to the stadium.

Boy, I tell you what.  That Rite-Aid parking lot sure looks mighty fine.  Simular to the Chick-Fil-A area and south of that on Razorback Road in Fayetteville.  I'm sure CSU regs probably tailgate there like the Hog fans do in the aforementioned area.  But, they're probably not diehard like we are and I bet we could beat them to their own spot.  :D

My boss is out today but he used to have a couple of tailgate spots and might have some suggestions.  I’d  say ring up our Denver chapter president but he doesn’t even show up to alumni stuff or do shit for our chapter.

O.K.  I don't know if this will be of any help; but, I just got off the phone with the CSA grad.  Apparently, the stadium is new since he was there.  The old stadium was outside of town.  With the new stadium on the campus, it is harder for him to give recommendations.  He suggested that you look at the area north of the stadium near the lagoon shown on the map.  He also said you need to look at Google for R & D spaces south of the stadium along Center Avenue.  They usually have large parking areas and are closed on the weekends.  Apparently, there is a New Belgium Beer Garden somewhere near the intramural fields, a bar in the stadium, and a bar in the student union.

Apparently, there is outstanding public transit buses that roll up and down all the main roadways.  He suggested that the real key is to get there early.  I suspect that will not be a problem with Hog Fans.   :beer:

The stadium is brand new. Just opened last season.

From what I can tell, they're really pushing public transport into the stadium area.

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

I believe the old town district is also just north of the stadium.
