Ida limits parking for Auburn game

This week’s weather has posed a problem for Georgia’s football team, which practiced in steady rain Tuesday and strong wind Wednesday, and the after-effects will pose a problem for some tailgaters Saturday.

Less parking will be available for the Sanford Stadium game against Auburn because of the recent rain, UGA said Wednesday.

The intramural fields and grassy areas around Aderhold Hall, East Campus Drive and the Ramsey Center are too waterlogged for safe parking and will be closed on Saturday, UGA officials said.

Said UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson in a news release: “The entire fall season has been wetter than usual, and due to Tropical Storm Ida, several ground areas are saturated to the point that we will not be able to use them for parking. We suggest people carpool as much as possible. We also ask those who normally bring pull-behind trailers to consider going without them so that we can have more parking available for other cars.”

UGA also asked that tailgaters consider the damage that heavy objects can cause to wet campus grounds and “reconsider some of the items they might normally bring.”

Nice job Lame Kiffin…way to bring 3 thugs to the football program. This was what I was worried about with Kiffin. I’m afraid there will be more of this in the future….

I was at the UGA – AU game in 2002 (the 4th down TD pass to M. Johnson game) and remember parking in a wet field there. There were alot of stuck vehicles in the mud.

Maybe the Campus Police need to bring out the water cannons…as payback…that way they could pump out the parking lots on Auburn fans….

With all the water on campus it should be a great time to break out our
new “Free Willy” t-shirts.

Yeah, you know all those eco-friendly BULLDONGS fans that trashed North Campus after the USCe game will surely comply…
