Vandy was perfect weather and the tailgating was crap. I was a little disappointed, to tell you the truth.
Part of the problem right now is that there just isn't a tailgating 'area'. The parking lots are spread out around the stadium and there's no central location like The Grove.
That and the fact that Mizzou has a long LONG way to go to build the tradition that the boys in 'Bama are used to seeing. I'm not sure what they expected to see on the first go-round, in the rain and with the football team struggling pretty badly right now.
