    I'd bet on parking at the MU or the bigger lots on campus and CyRide being used to move people back and forth.

    We see a lot of people walking to/from the Hyvee parking lot; it's a little closer than KMart...

    It bites the big one when grass lots are closed. Really reduces the pregame festivities for many. There wa more than one game during a season not long ago, that lots were closed. We ended up parking/tailgating at PEB parking lot on campus for the UNI game that year. . Definately not the same experience.

    It sucks balls when they close the lots. I remember the 2009 UNI game, and luckily we got relocated spots, but it was in no way, shape or form a place able to be tailgated in

    Hy-Vee's in a tough spot on this one, since Saturday is one of their biggest days. They really can't have that lot tied up for 4 hours like that.

    The cars usually park in the upper half of the lot, which I suppose technically belongs to HyVee, but is used by Hobby Lobby customers and HyVee employees. Tailgating isn't an option, but they have run a shuttle from there once or twice in recent memory.

    Good thing K-Mart doesn't have a problem like that to worry about.

    I can just imagine the employees at the door frothing over the idea of actually having customers come into the store...and then they all walk past without going in.

    Last couple of years they have had a significant number of people park in the Kmart lot and tailgate there; driving beer and tailgate supply sales. They don't normally get much business though and operate with a fairly skeletal crew and were completely overwhelmed the one Saturday that I went in while tailgating was going on.
