October 2017 | HARDWARE RETAILING 111 4 USS Indiana The Hoosiers don't fire a cannon when they score, but they do have military hardware on display. The prow, mainmast and two guns from the USS Indiana stand near the main entrance to Memorial Stadium, paying homage to the World War II battleship. 5 Striped Splendor The Indiana basketball teams are famed for their candy-striped warmup pants featuring the school colors. One tailgater designed his own striped piece of art by converting a shuttle bus as transportation for the tailgate party. It even played the school fight song at the push of a button. 6 Gourmet Cuisine The variety of food among tailgaters was mind blowing. From large, electric smokers to humble kettle grills, there was something for everyone. A surprising example was one cook dunking batches of fresh-cut french fries in oil over a gas grill. 7 Refreshments Anyone? This early in the season, the temperature outside was warmer than typical football weather. Pink lemonade, a variation on IU's crimson hue, was ready for anyone needing a cool down. 8 Wavy and Wild Towering plastic men waving their arms in the air might be a sight more typical at the local used car lot, but a pair of them stood out amongst the flags and trucks in Bloomington. 9 Grilling Fans IU memorabilia on T-shirts and hats flooded this event. But these fans took it up a notch, with IU-branded koozies and a matching red grill and toolbox for their grilling must-haves. 10 Roll on Out Setup is very easy for some tailgaters. This tailgating party had a smoker, sink and refrigerator that were all mounted on a recreational vehicle and could be pulled out like a drawer. 5 6 7 8 9 10
