    Thumbs Down Tech ruins Hide Away Park tailgating

    What the folks are saying on twitter.com...

    @LATech congrats on ruining tailgate for everyone that goes to hideaway. At least y'all won't have anything to clean up...

    Kicking the Greeks out of Hideaway with the new rules, you can say goodbye to a great student section. @tmcclelland @LATechFB @lkguice

    The new rules are literally pushing away a majority of the fans. I agree there should be rules but this isn't Russia.

    As a former alumni this shouldn't happen. Greeks are now tailgating at their houses and in return will have to walk 1/2 mile away to come

    So now they'll leave after the first quarter instead of the half?

    What were the changes?

    I walked 2 miles to the Arkansas game this morning. And back after. They'll live.

    So, what are the new rules and why were they established? Also, how do you become a former alumni?

    I'm still in the dark as to what these new draconian measures are. Not that I necessarily agree with them.

    But cmon. Walking a half-mile is not a legitimate greivance. Especially if you're just planning to go back to the tailgate and get drunk at halftime.

    I don't think we've heard yet what their grievance is. Why don't you wait until we know what it is?

    What I DO KNOW is this.....Louisiana Tech isn't in the position to be running ANY fans off.

    Hideaway Park is “the woods” with some frisbee golf holes. It should be treated like anywhere else.

    Sure. And I kind of am. I don't think our administration is blameless at all here. If someone says the TAC basement ruined a great tradition, I'll just sigh and add it to the list.

    8am? Why aren't they already out tailgating

    My beef is with complaining about walking a bit further and pretending that if the Greeks didn't show up there would be no student section. Complain about TMac ruining a perfectly good experience, and I'm right there with you!

    That's dumb......for a 6 PM game. I know the 8 AM thing was a horrible inconvenience for our old alumni tailgate that we had a few weeks ago for the MS St game. Understandably, nobody in our alumni group wanted to show up at 8 AM to "hold a spot" for tailgating. We ended up paying some young kids to do it for us. But the whole exercise was stupid. All it did was convince our group --all LA Tech alumni-- to not do it again. Congratulations Tech!

    See, this I agree with (that this is stupid and ruins tailgating).

    Couldn't they have their pledges get up early and hold the spots? Man, Greek life has changed.

    Catch 22. If you make pledges show up at 8 AM and hold the spot all day, they bust you for hazing. The Tech administration has never been Greek friendly.

    What are the details of this 8:00 AM rule? What areas are subject to it, and what exactly are they restricting people from doing?
