Mizzou Move to SEC Ends Tailgating Tradition

The University of Missouri’s move from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference will mean the end to a long-time halftime tradition, and it means that fans needing a drink or a smoke will just have to wait until after the game.

The school currently allows fans to leave Faurot Field at halftime to grab a drink or smoke a cigarette as long as their tickets are scanned both when the ticket-holder first enters the stadium and again after halftime.

But SEC rules don’t allow fans to leave and then re-enter the stadium for football games.

In Big 12 country, a lot of people make a habit of running back to the parking lots to top off the tanks.  I suppose that's why they make flasks!
