    How will the flood..

    effect tailgating and parking? As of now i guess they probably dont know much of whats going on, but do they think the water will be down in time for the opener on September 2nd?

    If the water hasn't receded in 3 weeks then we have much larger issues on our hands.

    Most of the water will be gone within a couple days. How dry things are for the grass lots will obviously depend on the weather and drying conditions.

    Big issue could be the mud and other debris. Kinda need wet weather to wash alot of that away, which doesn't help the drying.

    The water will all be receded within 24 hours. It will have 3 weeks to dry out, pending no more significant rain.

    Re: How will the flood..

    If the rain mostly holds out the next 3 weeks I'm guessing the parking lots will be fine by then. The major issue is the inside of Hilton. That could take months to fix.

    Re: How will the flood..

    The flood waters will be down within a few days. As easy as the water can get in and flood, it can get out just as easy.
    The only problem will be some debris and a few dead fish.
    All this assuming we don't continue to get 6" of rain each day.

    Re: How will the flood..

    Also note that grass under water for more that a day or two starts to die. It turns black and rots and smells. I hope there is a better answer for this. The good thing is, after Sept. 2, we do not play at home again till Sept. 25, so things should be much better by then.

    We asked 100 people if we will continue to get 6" of rain each day......

    Survey says.......

    YES (100)

    Re: How will the flood..

    Then we break out our boats and go Ozark party cove style tailgating. We are cyclones. We don't not tailgate. It's in our blood. We will just have to find a different way to get it done.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    hell, lay some straw over the dead grass and call it good. As long as I can tailgate on grass, boat or whatever. Just let me tailgate!
