Baylor's new McLane Stadium will host pregame 'sail-gating'
Baylor's new stadium will allow for a limited amount of on-the-water tailgating.
It looks like the Vol Navy might have some Big 12 company when it comes to on-the-water tailgating.
Ian McCaw: "There's going to be sail-gating in 2014." Says sixteen boat slips will be available. Atmosphere will be unique to Baylor.— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) February 25, 2014
The Bears won't be the first team to feature waterborne pregame merriment -- there's Tennessee, as mentioned, and Washington's "Husky Harbor" tradition -- but the "atmosphere" on the Brazos does promise to have its own flavor.
Last week, this space observed that McLane Stadium -- the Bears' new $250 million-plus facility -- is one of the most-buzzed about topics in the Baylor fanbase, even with the opening still several months away. And it's hard to see the imminent arrival of "sail-gating" aschanging any of that.
