24 hour Tailgate in The Rat's Mouth for FAU vs. FIU - 11/15/12



What do most students do before a football game? That’s simple… they tailgate.

But FAU is taking tailgating to the next level. On November 15th at 8pm through November 16th at 8pm FAU will be hosting the first ever 24 hour tailgate before our biggest football game of the year vs. FIU.

Not only will students be able to “Party in the Rat’s Mouth” for 24 hours but also they will be able to raise money for the Red Cross’s hurricane Sandy relief.

Organizations will also have the opportunity to participate …

Power, you involved with this thing at all?

If so, what kind of turnout during the "off hours" are they expecting?

I love to tailgate but I don't think this will work a lot of kids go out on Thursday night and could drag on a bit I am for tagating early but you have to think most orgainizations have a tailgate budget and wod not get food for 24 hours.

I wonder if the concept is meant to allow for camping out. Like at Penn State or Duke (for basketball). OC is right, only the most hardcore (or drug fueled) will be able to make it 24 hours of tailgating.

My vision for this…big tailgate party starting at 8pm Thursday, people partying and grillin and going till 2/3am. Some folks leave others camp out and sleep in the rats nest. Wake up at noon and start all over again.

I tried to do something like this for the CUSA Championship game in Orlando back in 2005 for a noon kickoff. We went out the night before, home at 5am, to the tailgate at 6am and I was falling asleep in the stadium in the second half. It's not easy!

Students living on campus will probably come and go multiple times over the course of the 24 hours. Going full throttle for 24 hours is a difficult task and probably not the wisest choice.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

Come on guys this are college kids, 24 hrs and a football is totally doable.  If it was me, I'd probably set up, party thursday night till the magic hour (2-3am), then crash for a couple hours, wake up in the morning and then start the tailgating over again all day until kickoff.

Note to the Administration - This will leave a HUGE mess and of course some people will get out of control…..but plenty of other universities allow this and it is not new or earth shattering at all.  Let them have fun, clean up, and then think about opening up tailgating for the rest of us.  This is a good thing.

FAU - We got Bowls!

Think only student organizations have to register.
