The new parking pass doesn't look good for Grover's! Granted, I don't have all details yet but I will Monday when I go to Oxford and sit down with Dan and others. If you haven't seen this info and the map, go to Ole Miss parking press release. I hope I am wrong!!!
from what ive read and seen i believe you are right. looks as though to be allowed on campus you must buy a parking pass. which would mean paying at least $50 to join the ??? (former UMAA) and then the pass is $100, but you cant park just anywhere you would be assigned a parking spot. could be by Tad Smith, DOT lot or anywhere.
i dont have that much of a problem with it myself, i understand what its for and thats to raise $$$. the way we are doing it now isnt helping OM compete with the big boys. i do also understand some of the gripes that are coming from this as well. if you do tailgate every game in the grove but yet must park by the softball field then its gonna be rough getting your vehicle from there to the grove after the game.
I'm all for $ to the athletic department. I have spoken with them and its not all worked out yet as far as traffic flow back to the Grove for after game loading but they are working on it and listening to concerns. All will be ok for those of us prepared. For many it will be a shock and a nightmare!!!
I'm all for this if they could use the funds to create a signifigant permanent off-campus parking structure that would have ample shuttles or a tram to campus. If they would allow the same system for dropping things off in the grove and picking them up before and after the game. The traffic situation is what will continue to be the main obstacle. As our fanbase grows we don't have any choice but adapt and make changes. I just hope we make the right decision.
Why in the world would this get a down vote??? Come on folks!
The Future Is Bright! Hotty Toddy
