After the happenings at Penn State this week, tailgating at all campuses will be stirred up with conversation about what happened to Joe Paterno.
But whether you agree or disagree with that big news, you have to admit that a pall has been cast over college football on many levels.
But this article is not intended to be a downer, so if you'll indulge me, it’s still time to get the party going, as we only have a few weeks left in regulation, so to speak.
Where did the time go?
Wow, the so-called "Game of the Century" last weekend between LSU and Alabama was a nail biter, wasn’t it? After awhile it seemed that the first team to score a touchdown would win the game, but that just didn’t happen.
And then there were the upsets that make each week more exciting than the others, and we had a few last week.
This weekend will be no different, as we have some classic conference matchups, as well as BCS conflicts that will help resolve more questions come Sunday night in the new rankings.
So far this season, we have covered over 75 different college venues for tailgating, so there are bound to be some repeats, but then some do it better than others week after week, just like on the field.
