I apologize for the late posting. I've been traveling and trying to get everything lined out for this game. This is our last tailgate of the year. Some come and join in on the fun.

Where - Our spot on the South side of Ag Hall
When - Lot opens at 8:00 AM.
Who - Anybody/everybody.
Menu -Pulled Pork, Corn Casserole, Green Beans.




The game time is set for 2:30 PM. The tailgate is open to everybody. Feel free to come join us and have a great time. If you are a West Virginia fan, you are very welcome to join in. You will be treated very well pretty much everywhere on campus, but we love having the opposition come join us in the fun.


Scholarship drive for 2018: Since the 2012 season, the generosity of people donating has allowed us to donate at least $1000 to OSU for scholarships after every season. The hope is that we can accomplish that goal again this year. We have a need to get a new tent canopy before next season. The cost of that is about $500. I'm hoping that we can do that as well as making our donation goal.

A couple notes:
  • While we aren't responsible for enforcing the no tobacco rules on campus, most people appreciate being smoke free. So if you wish to smoke, please move away from the tents to do so. We had a couple instances in prior years of people smoking under or right next to the tents. Not a good situation. Please respect those around you in their choice to be smoke free.
  • There is always some confusion on donations. There are two different items for donations: One is for the tailgate. This is done either to David Harrell or in the tailgate tip jar. This is primarily to cover the expenses of the tailgate, with all funds over the costs going to the scholarship fund which is documented above.. The second is at the Intoxicologist's vehicle. This helps him offset the cost of what he provides. I know this is confusing, and we wish it weren't for the best to keep these things separate, but there are a few reasons why we need to keep it like this. So continue to be as generous as you can.
David Harrell

I should have pointed out that the primary reason for the menu for this game is two fold:

First, I had a lot of great responses about the pulled pork the first time I made it this year. My new source for the pork shoulder is pretty spectacular and worth the extra cost over Sams.

Second, last tailgate I was threatened that I better have corn souffle for WV because we haven't had it at any tailgate this season. The corn souffle is a great side for pulled pork.
