For the faithful in Dade County, the scene here looks like 3 or 4 hours before a UM game at the OB....which sadly will soon be only a memory...but I digress.
There are SLC tailgaters as far down as five blocks from the stadium and everywhere you look green jerseys. I even saw one guy wearing a Lebron James high school jersey just to match SLC's green. As Manny and I drove up to the stadium, we saw a garage full of parked trucks and one had one of those inflatable 10-foot tall football players of the Dragons.
The Northwestern team buses just pulled up.
tick, tock, tick tock.
2 hours, 10 minutes and counting until kickoff.
