Opening Day was everything I could have imagined as a fan. Tailgating was supple in many areas of campus. The atmosphere was thick, particularly on Spicer Street. Oh, and the Zips won big.
My group tailgated in the law school parking lot. Some of my classmates were squeamish about that, but I think the police and administrators approached this day with a realistic view of what needs to be permitted on gameday.
I spent time at several areas of the stadium, including the west student section and south endzone's grassy hill. For Akron students attending their first game, it must have been an experience that will bring them back on Saturday.
