Every one knows the best part of college football and well, the NFL as well– Is a good old fashion TAILGATE. I have been blessed enough to experience tailgating at Boulder, U Miami, UCLA, USC, Purdue, and Arizona State. They were all pretty similar, but I decided to dig a little deeper, because I wanted to know who had THEE BEST Tailgate. After doing some reading, I discovered that LSU ranked in the Top 3 every time.  I know things are done a little bit different in the South, so let’s see what makes LSU’s tailgating such a monumental experience!

Reason #5: The average tailgater, drives to the game, unpacks the BBQ and gets down to business. Well at LSU, some one decided that was too many steps: 

This tailgate mobile has a barbecue pit under the suicide hod, and inside has a kegarator. GENIUS!! 

Reason #4: T. U. B. Aka The Unsupervised BUS A group of tailgaters that got their name by going to games with out their significant others– literally making them: Unsupervised. The crew started to grow over the years and they decided to buy the Ultimate LSU party Mobile: A 1982 School Bus.

Reason #3: True Fans!! According to Tailgater Monthly (and yes such a publication does exist) The Tailgaters start filling in around Wednesday and the better spots will run upwards of $500 for the season.

Reason #2: You cant tailgate with out booze! These Crazy Cajuns bring enough beer to fill up the stadium! and the best part is that the majority of LSU home games start in the evening making the scene chaotic by kickoff. I mean, doesn’t this look like a great girls trip?

Reason #1: THE FOOD!!!  Tons and tons of Southern Deliciousness!  Gumbo and Jambalaya at a Tailgate?? YES! This is not your average burgers and dogs kind of venue.  Gumbo is basically a soup-like dish that includes a variety of different creole spices mixed with different types of seafood like shrimp, crawfish, fish and can be filled with chicken, rice, sausage, peppers, and tomatoes. I feel like every Saturday in Fall is a mini Mardi Gras for Tiger Fans… and for that, I am SUPER JEALOUS!

I’m gonna let these fellow JC’s take it from here… Catchy lil cheer I must say:
