For future reference, lot S is not a good lot for oversized vehicles. Although we got there early (6:15pm the day the before) and had our choice of spots, there were only a few spots capable of holding a large bus and half those spots were already taken by cars. So after two hours of negotiations with all levels of parking patrol personnel, the local sheriffs, and campus security we were finally allowed to stay in the SIX parking spots it took to accommodate us plus one for our support truck that arrived late with reinforcements. It was definitely not the most cost effective way of parking but at that point in the evening we decided we did not have much of a choice. It sounds like from Steve that the Finkbine lot was a lot more accommodating of buses and I am sure a lot more cost effective. That is not to say we did not have a good time, but next time we make it over that direction we will definitely head to the Finkbine lots.
PS- The game was on DirecTV, that is what we watched it on, but not until halfway through the first quarter. There were a lot of pissed off tailgaters before DirecTV got their act together and switched over.
