    TAC Tailgating Policy

    In case some of you didn't know, they are continuing last year's policy of not allowing anyone on the hill after 8 AM, unless you have a red (or higher) parking pass. I personally won't be doing a tailgate this year, as sitting on the hill for 10 hours prior to kickoff is not really a good use of my time.

    Once again, our AD will use the "it's for the kids safety" excuse, but will allow vehicles to drive all over creation as long as they enter from the south side of the tailgate area (Alabama) where hundreds of kiddos are running around.

    Our AD knew last year was a fail, but he doubles down on his mistake this year which will KILL student tailgating in Hideaway park and continue to hurt those who were tailgating on the TAC hill when he was still pooping green.

    What a goofball!

    I love my Louisiana Tech, but we do ALL WE CAN, seemingly, to retrograde. We had good inertia going a few years ago, and now we're heading back to making it hard for people to enjoy football.

    I think TMAC is a plant, by evil-doers, bent on destroying Tech Football. They know they couldn't compete fair and square, so they use this clandestine, infiltration tactic.

    all you people that live farther out than 70 miles from campus have to take Friday off to drive over and put up your tents and set up your grill. Unbelievable.

    TMAC Tailgating Policy= you little people get out of the way...... I have 6 people who want to park in those suite parking spots this year...... If a Southland conference team wanted to trade us a washing machine and a dryer for our AD I would take it in a heart beat. Least something would work how its supposed to.

    Would some responsible person with common sense and pull please step in and solve this very solvable problem? Like others have said, we were making progress with the student attendance. This has set us back 20 years.

    Good grief--I would love to have you face to face with Coach and AD-- heck, even my friend Salmon-- would you say any of the negative crap to their face?? count on you for negative posts --

    Or start hiring Tech organizations through SGA.

    Read the below response to see how flippant those types of people are.

    I have spoken with Solomon regarding this issue. I have also let him know several other people that will not be able to tailgate on the hill this year. He knows that I am frustrated with this policy. Why not just set the limit to 5 hours prior to kickoff? That is when the shuttle starts to run, before Bulldog Village opens, and about when they used to start policing the parking passes. I guess that makes too much sense for us to do it. And now that I've mentioned it on BBB, it will never happen...

    ....I can't speak for PD, but I personally tell Solomon Randle (if that's who you are referring to) these things ALL THE TIME. Face to face. Over lunch. Over dinner. At ball games. At restaurants. At a lot of places. Solomon knows they aren't perfect. The AD has received an earful from me too.

    Quit acting like someone is afraid to talk to Solomon or the AD face-to-face.

    Chill out. Soloman knows our AD is a goofball. He and his peers had to listen all the BS last year. I'm sure they are excited to be going through the same thing again

    I really don't give a damn, I'll show up at 11 and park in the gravel lot by the tac. I wouldn't even ask for a washing machine, I'd give Tmac away

    Used to do that. Used to be all we looked forward to.

    That was back then. Before family tailgates were ignored, then priced out, then runned off.

    I don't think we could give him away at this point even if we threw in a washing machine.
