Southern Living Dubs SMU a Top Tailgating School, Citing Those Crazy Cake Stands

This, according to Southern Living, is one of the best tailgates in the South.
Both my parents went to SMU, and I even went to a few sporting events growing up. But I claim total ignorance of SMU's apparently proud tailgating tradition. Er, I mean Boulevarding tradition.

Either way, the school does it well, according to Southern Living, which ranked SMU as one of 20 best tailgating schools in the South. Not much hint of the magazine's methodology for compiling the list, just four categories: UT and OU are among the "Powerhouses," A&M is a "Traditionalist," and SMU is a "Style Setter."

And what, exactly, is a tailgating style setter? "From sundresses to cake stands, these schools showcase true splendor in the grass," the magazine explains.

Wait, cake stands? This is college, right? You mean keg stand, right? But no. Kegs aren't allowed on The Boulevard.

there's plenty of kegs out there.  It's just that most of them are through the various schools, clubs and the like.

Is the photo actually that of an SMU tailgating "party?". There are no cars, therefore no tailgates. There is no parking lot.

Southern living proclaims SMU a top tailgating school.......nuff said!  What's next, Forbes is going to name UNT a top party school. I've been to hundreds of SMU games at Ford, and at the Cotton Bowl; and never once did I EVER say "this place has a great tailgating atmosphere!".  NEVER.

SMU is also one of the top gay-hating universities in America.

SMU averaged around 22,400 per home game last season. Maybe those tailgators forgot to attend the game. A new QB this year might help up those numbers a bit.

When I went to SMU, there were no cake stands, or boulevard parties. Kegs? Yes, in abundance. And X was still legal. Ahh, the good ole days.

Why did you throw an Effus pitch, wen you should have thrown a standard fastball?  That comment is both alarming, and weird.

 @hilltopHillbilly uhhhh no they didn't.  Anyone who has been to an SMU game knows that they aren't averaging 22k.

 @kergo1spaceship 10 times the students.  Hey, I don't have any real affiliation to SMU.  My dad and wife went there, but I wouldn't defend the school for that.
