More than a few tailgaters did not make it to the game
Weather was a plus
Since yesterday's tailgate for the 1st UMass football home game went so well. maybe the powers that be should consider replicating the party this coming March to mitigate the Blarney Blowout.
Which of course they pretty much do anyway with an expensive concert at the Mullins Center. So maybe allow tailgating there, or hold the concert at the McGuirk Stadium.

Seems the camaraderie of cars, youthful exuberance, the outdoors, and of course alcohol can be mixed in such a way so as not to lead to a wildfire of mayhem.
