UTSA is quite the solid team, could be a letdown week after a huge win. I still have us winning tho

I hope they stress not to take this team lightly, gotta forget about today tomorrow and start focus on next week.

Sure hope Memorial Stadium gets their act together. The concessions area on the East side was a train wreck. Had to wait in line 45 minutes to get any food or a drink with ice. The crowd was jammed in there trying to pick up food that was ordered, and people were getting frustrated. Also, the bottled drinks only lines were way too long; plus when we got to the front the drinks were lukewarm and they were out of bottled water!!!! They seemed totally unprepared for a gameday where hydration was important. Some of my friends had to leave early as they were too hot and thirsty. I was planning to take the family next week to the UTSA game and enjoy the concessions for dinner, but I guess we will have to eat before we get inside as that would be a nightmare. I've been attending games at Memorial Stadium since 1977 and have never seen anything like today. They need to fix this asap if they want fans to enjoy the gameday experience in the stadium.

Was on news that they are short workers but are trying to hire more. Agree though concessions on East side were a train wreck

Why am I not surprised to hear about the concessions train wreck. The last basketball game that we were at, the lines were ridiculously long and sold out of everything except a couple varieties of candy bars.
We didn’t go to the game yesterday due to the heat forecast. See you there this week. Take advantage of the vendors at Grange Grove before going in.

I was at the game yesterday and the heat was brutal. I have to agree concessions were terrible on the east side. I know they make a lot of their money off concessions, but with heat yesterday there should have been tubs of bottled water free for the taking. That might have cut down on the heat exhaustion cases a bit.

On a much brighter note, what a joy to see a well coached and well played game from my beloved Illini. I am truly excited for the future. We have a long way to go, but I think we will get there.
