Tailgating experience in jeopardy?

Earlier this week, it was reported that the university had established a new set of regulations for on-campus tailgating, effective immediately (though DPS plans to ease in the regulations throughout the semester).

Although many of the rules simply restated existing policies, the most attention-grabbing of the provisions were restrictions on loud music and and the already much-disdained ban on drinking games, such as beer pong.

The reasoning for this ban stems from an effort to keep the tailgating experience a family friendly environment.

Drinking games were targeted as they encourage the mass consumption of alcohol in a short amount of time, leading to quicker intoxication and a higher probability of injury or disorderly conduct.

Those found in violation of the rules could be cited and referred to Student Judicial Affairs, with non-student visitors potentially asked to leave campus property.

Many have questioned the regulations; all things considered, we want to know:

Do you think that the current state of tailgating on campus is a problem?

    All I got to say, “What the f*#% happened to the Delta I used to know? Where’s the spirit? Where’s the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you’re gonna let it be the worst. “Ooh, we’re afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble.” Well just kiss my a$$ from now on! Not me! I’m not gonna take this. Wormer, he’s a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer…”

    My answer, NO!
