Clint Richardson walked around the Tailgate Guys set up and took some photos of the best tent names.

Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of Iron Bowl references.

I wonder how many people tried to get "Kick Six"? This had to have been one of the very first entries completed.

"0:01 to None" is pretty good, and "Red Makes Us Sick" is all encompassing for the most part. Almost every one of the teams we play in the SEC on a consistent basis has some form of red in their colors (even if it's a maroon shade).

Similar to "Kick Six," I imagine "109 yards" was a hot-ticket item that went fast.

Are any of you tailgating in the Tailgate Guys tents? Let me know who you are, and I'll try to drop by and say hi, sometime! I typically tailgate in front of the Nichols Center whenever I do tailgate.
