My buddy and I are flying up from Texas on the Friday morning for the game on 28 September. Who else will be going to the game, in South Bend the night before, etc.? I know Cubfansince1957 will be there because of his Ticket Lottery Results fanpost, but I can't remember if anyone else has said they'll definitely be at that one. Two of my uncles drove in from central PA last year for the Michigan game, and they put together an awesome tailgate for us on the golf course (classy, I tell you, classy), but this year I have no tailgate hook-up connections on campus. I have three cousins attending the University, but two of them are chicks (one doesn't even go to the games!) and the one dude might have his ROTC field training exercise that weekend.
If you'll be there that weekend and know of a tailgate we can join, we'd gladly contribute some cash/beer/booze and some Southern
hospitality geniality (or whatever the receiving end equivalent is). I'm sure we won't go hungry or thirsty if we just wander around looking pitiful and in need of a good pre-game home, but I'd feel better if we had something more definite lined up. Thanks!
