Tailgating with a block-long row of tents, trucks, grills, tables televisions and more. Serving up everything imaginable. Sipping on canned beer and keg beer.
Tailgaters elsewhere on campus have various names for the tailgaters directly south of Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The swarm. The drunk den. The south 40. But before the Sooners creamed Idaho State, the folks lining the sidewalks south of Lindsey Street were self-proclaimed mud dodgers. "Gross," one young woman muttered as she hopped across a mud puddle in the sidewalk. She was wearing cowboy boots and a crimson dress covered by a bright yellow poncho. The rain made mushy mud of the ground. Tailgaters crammed into huddles on islands of somewhat-dry land beneath tents. "I tried to get some mud wrestling going, but no one was down," said student Kyle Arnold, who said he lives in the dorms a few blocks away. The area is one of the most popular tailgating spots for students. It's like walking through a dozen college house parties at once.
