I love my DAWGS and like to have fun at the games, but there is no sense in that mess.............. IF folks don't change their ways, there will be a change it how gameday tailgating is handled and most aren't gonna like it....

I agree 100%. No excuse for trashing the grounds like that.

This is my biggest issue with people that tailgate on North Campus. That's why I don't go up there. Our tailgate is as clean or cleaner when we leave. I will not hesitate to tell people to clean up after themselves. This really chaps me.

I agree 100% it is sad, but I doubt there is any difference than at any other college, something really needs to be done!

Thanks for bringing this up to the dawg nation Jody!

If that picture is real, that's the worst I've ever seen it, and I've lived here for 10 years.

But... it was a night game. People had all day to eat and drink and be merry, and have their judgement thoroughly impaired. That's what happens when 18-24 year olds don't have their parents standing over them. What can you do?

Uhm...that's just one tailgating area. There are many many more.

I was questioning why you put it here because it's not gonna result in anyway in sports talk...it's gonna result in stupid comments like the one above. Every school has problems with trash on game day. When you get 120,00 people in a small area and they don't have enough trash cans, their trash will go in bags. Add in the fact that Athens 'residents' will come through and open the trash bags and dig through the trash cans for aluminum and this is the result.

Oh and I'm not making excuses for these jokers...I agree, my tailgating area is cleaner when we leave. I just think this was particularly bad because if you'll notice, there's only 2 trash cans in the whole picture. That's just dumb planning on UGA's part. Ummm, I'll think I'll blame Michael Adams.

Some perspective:

from the ajc link

Quote:
"What happened last week is typical," said George Stafford, UGA's associate vice president for auxiliary and administrative services. "It takes 200 to 300 people on Sunday morning to pick up and bag up all the trash, throw it on a truck and haul it out to the landfill. A typical day game produces 35 to 40 tons of trash. A night SEC game like this we have 70 or more tons."
