As more and more people become interested in Cajun football I get asked often by new comers where can I tailgate? As all of you know the spots available currently are all taken. As this program continues to grow the university will have to come up with a plan for additional tailgating because it's what fans want to do. You have to make it an event for everyone those who want to set up a tailgate but have nowhere to go will lose interest quickly. Here is what I think should be done to expand tailgating. They need to get a 2nd band and stage in the field across Cajun Dome Blvd from Bourgeois Hall. This can either be first come first serve as it is on several college campuses or sold spots. Folks could park at Blackham, the print shop or the fields across the street from both. The bus loading area, the print shop entrance and the new trail through Blackham can be used for loading and unloading. This would give you all the room you need for growth for now.
I realize that Cajun fans are spoiled to having a huge field adjacent to the stadium where most just drive up to their TG spots. So before you say it's not good because the stadium is to far of a walk and you can't drive right up to your spot keep in mind that in most on campus stadiums this is the case. I have been to games when the Cajuns played So. Miss and if you can park as close as Fatima church or Albertsons you are doing very well. In Troy you have to park in a neighborhood that would be equivalent to parking in the Saints streets area.
What is your opinion on future tailgating expansion? Where do you think it should be?
