Stay and cheers or slam some beers?

Was a great atmosphere for 'cruits to see.

Yes, it was pretty good.

I will be "that guy" and say the half full, post halftime crowd while everyone finishes their beers or whatever is annoying.

Just sell rough ridin' beer in the [entire] stadium, good grief. I can't believe how many stupid hicks go through the hassle of leaving and reentering the stadium to suck down a BL or 2. Alas, there appears to be about 10,000 of them.

the halftime parking lot is to meet up with a girl you saw inside the game.

It's ridiculous, shameful, embarrassing. It didn't always used to be this way. I hate passouts, it's actually a terrible business practice, fsd is 100% correct.

i'm not going to get mad at people who don't come back in, let alone in time for kick. If they're having a better time in the parking lot than they are inside then good for them. Have fun, but if i was calling the shots, I would sell beer and win in the stadium until the end of the 3rd qtr, and stop allowing reentry.

I drink a beer in the parking lot most games and can count on one hand the number of times I've missed kickoff in the past 5 years. If you are in one of the main lots 20 minutes is plenty of time to walk to the car, chug a beer, and then walk back in.

sounds like all the hardcore fans are staying in the stadium anyway, so it's not like the guys leaving at half to get beers are probably making much noise anyway, so who cares

That's a good take, buddy.

I mean, I get Central Arkansas, Charlotte, or whatever... But we led the #9 team 21-10. I guess I don't get it.

Was having quite a bit of fun with family and friends outside at a tailgate.  Cats games and festivities are suppose to be fun and enjoyable. Not some cat tail measuring stick contest

younger me that got really worked up about the cats used to care about dumb stuff like people in the stands to start the 2nd half.  older me sometimes won't even make it into the 2nd half if it's not a big game/we're playing like crap/weather related/having fun with friends and family out at the tailgate.  people have different priorities on how to use their free time on a weekend, wgaf

These are both fine, literally nothing wrong with them. You can certainly argue what the role of a fan at a sporting event is, but I won't do that. The conversation should be about how ridiculous it is to have pass outs. The rules allow for us to have 15,000 empty seats to open the half against a top 10 team on national television, why blame people taking advantage of what's presented to them?

I also think this is a not all things created equal argument. I have no idea why the east club seats were way under 50% capacity. I also think it's bullshit that at least a thousand students never came back.

yeah, when i was a student, that's probably when i was at my peak emaw fandom, so leading against OU at home, i probably wouldn't have left at half.  i think another issue is the games seem to be getting longer.

Maybe football just isn't quite as popular with America's youth as it used to be.

It's embarrassing.  No doubt about it.  The first five minutes of the second half is a crucial point in the game and often times our Cats, at home, are playing in front of a half filled stadium.  So happy those that are leaving are "having a great time" chugging a beer or two, good for you....that certainly doesn't take away from the fact that you are shitty fans.

I leave at half to puff a mommy. I walk over the end of the lot by Jardine. Smoke. Come back in. Urinate. Then get back to my seat in time for the kickoff.

I guess I'm a good fan.

some times i won't even come into the games, just get lit in the parking lots with my tix in my pocket.  i'm probably the best fan here because i'll still listen the the games on Wyattvision in this scenario which is obviously more difficult than simply watching with one's eyes.  #bestestfan

Just sneak in a small bottle of whiskey (or your favorite spirit).
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

Problem with staying in at halftime is the band doesn't do it for me and I'm impatient. Parking lot is way more fun and like 'stone said, it's the easiest place on earth for college students to slay.

Sad that some people on this board feel like they can only have fun eating and drinking when they are outside but near a football stadium with a game going on inside. :frown:
