Howdy!! I'll be one of the thousands of Aggies making the trek to Oxford next week to watch Texas A&M take y'all on in our first ever SEC road game. I just have two quick questions regarding tailgating in the Grove.
First question: Do opposing fans generally tailgate there? I'm coming with a few other Aggies, and we're driving in Wednesday. We're going to be making this a long trip, try to get some gambling in, trek to Memphis for some music and try their barbecue, etc. One of my group wants to set up a tailgate in the Grove. We tailgate at every game at A&M. I'm just wondering how welcome y'all are to opposing fans tailgating? I've heard about your Southern hospitality, and would be perfectly fine just wandering through the Grove, making new friends, and meeting as many Mississippi fans as possible. Others in my group, however, want to set up our own tailgate and revel in the atmosphere. Which do you recommend?
Second question: Is there an official or unofficial RCR tailgate? Do y'all congregate in one area? It would be fun to get out and meet some of you, and put some faces with the online pseudonyms.
Thanks for any help, and Gig'em!!!
