Harry Maguire riddled with mistakes but still on the plane for Gareth Southgate; Trent Alexander-Arnold missed - England's World Cup squad rankings

The Sky Sports England World Cup Squad Ranking lists the top 40 players battling for a place in Gareth Southgate's 26-man squad for Qatar 2022; Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold is on the slide after being overlooked against Italy and Germany (Author: Gardener)

Harry MaguireHarry Maguire received the support of Gareth Southgate despite his error-strewn performance against Germany, but Trent Alexander-Arnold is out. The latest England World Cup squad ranking is here! It was another opportunity for the Southgate players to bolster their claim to a World Cup spot after Friday's 1-0 defeat by Italy at the San Siro, but who has improved their prospects in the two games and who's slipping down the ladder down? Here we go through the players already on the plane, those sitting in the departure lounge with their boarding pass in hand, and those hopping in a cab to the airport hoping for the best. Keep in mind that we will be updating our rankings every week from now until Southgate names their roster on October 20th before the start of the November 20th tournament. Harry Kane remains at the top of the leaderboard with Declan Rice (2nd), Jordan Pickford (3rd). and Raheem Sterling (4th) occupy the three spots below him, but there's a change underneath as Jude Bellingham moves up four spots to fifth after his excellent performances against Italy and Germany. Bellingham is likely to partner with Rice in the absence of Kalvin Phillips, who was already struggling for game time at Manchester City before his injury. The biggest climbers, however, are Eric Dier (11th) and Luke Shaw (12th), who have climbed 10 and 16 spots respectively after returning to the squad and taking their chance. Suddenly they're looking for specific tips for Qatar and possibly Southgate's starting XI as well. Southgate will feel his faith in Dier and Shaw has been vindicated, but it's a different story for Harry Maguire. The 24-year-old remains a deeply unpopular choice among supporters due to his poor form for club and country, but Southgate's faith is unshakable. Even after his dismal showing at Wembley on Monday night, when he was responsible for Germany's opening goal and also partly at fault for the second, Southgate came out and backed him, a clear sign he still had a seat on the plane to Qatar - however upset that might make many followers. Jack Grealish (14th), Jordan Henderson (15th), Kyle Walker (16th), Kieran Trippier (17th) and Ben Chilwell (18th) will all be confident of taking their seats on the plane despite only beating Italy Germany have little playing time. Nick Pope (20th) has moved above Aaron Ramsdale (21st) in our rankings having started in both games, but his performances suggest Pickford has little reason to worry about the No. 1 shirt make. Pope endured a poor evening against Germany, his handling error allowed Kai Havertz to level late and there were numerous moments in the two games that showed he is ill-suited to play from behind. Conor Coady (22nd) is hoping to cement his status as the next central defender in the line-up, while Tammy Abraham (23rd) is confident of retaining his place in the 26 ahead of Ivan Toney, who didn't make the squad against Italy came against Germany not from the bank. The 24-year-old, who was unavailable against Italy and Germany with a muscle injury, has been a standout for Manchester United of late and could offer firepower and flexibility in a side that are struggling to score. Jarrod Bowen is currently clinging to his place in the top 26 in the rankings but the West Ham man will need to find form for his club if he is to stay there. Trent Alexander-Arnold is looking increasingly likely to miss selection for Qatar. The Liverpool right-back has fallen seven places in our ranking to 27th after failing to come on as a substitute against Italy and not even being included in the squad against Germany. James appears to have nailed the right-back having started in both games, while Southgate clearly has more faith in Walker and Trippier than in Alexander-Arnold. Alexander-Arnold's prospects look even bleaker as Southgate is married to a back three rather than a back four. The 23-year-old doesn't offer the same level of flexibility as Walker and Trippier, who can take different positions in England's defence. It won't be a popular decision among fans - understandably given all his offers in an offensive sense - but the recent international break has only served to increase suspicions that Southgate might overlook him in their selection for Qatar.

Trent Alexander-Arnold doubts how Jude Bellingham shines

England's World Cup winners and losers: Trent Alexander-Arnold doubts while Jude Bellingham shines - A winless Nations League season leaves Gareth Southgate making big decisions (Author: Gardener)

Jude BellinghamEngland's last game before the World Cup was a dazzling 3-3 Nations League draw against Germany on Monday night at Wembley Stadium. It came after a narrow defeat in Italy, with the English football team being relegated to League B as a result, leaving Gareth Southgate with plenty to ponder. The 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder has been the standout for England in their last two games before the World Cup. With a confidence and attitude that belies his tender years, Bellingham has almost certainly made his way into the opener against Iran. After almost two years of feeling overwhelmed at international level, Dier was rewarded for his good form with a recall to England. The Tottenham defender made a straight return to Southgate's starting XI and was one of five men to play both Italy and Germany every minute. Shining in a back three for his club has reclaimed his place with England and if Southgate maintains the same form at the World Cup, Dier could retain his place in the side. With a wealth of options down the right, Southgate stayed with James in both games, with neither Kieran Trippier nor Trent Alexander-Arnold playing a single minute on the international break. That would suggest James has his position locked in the team and if he maintains his club form there's a good chance he'll keep that berth when it really counts. After Pickford was named man of the match in Everton's 0-0 draw with Liverpool, he was ruled out of September's international games with a hamstring injury. He has long been established as Southgate's first-choice goalkeeper but with Aaron Ramsdale being tried in the last two games in June and Nick Pope playing against Italy and Germany, that position appeared to be in jeopardy. However, Ramsdale scored four goals against Hungary and was relegated to the bench when Pope got his chance - only to struggle against Germany, his mistake ultimately costing England a win and all but ensuring that Pickford, if fit, would have his Space between the two retains posts. The England manager was rewarded for that confidence as the left-back performed well against Germany after coming on as a substitute in the 1-0 defeat by Italy. A goal and a striking all-around display was just what Shaw needed in England's last game before the World Cup, especially if his club minutes remain limited in the coming weeks. His club form has fallen this year and apparently so have his chances of becoming a regular starter under Southgate. He was left entirely out of the matchday squad for the game against Germany and his place on the plane to Qatar is certainly not secure, especially given the number of players vying for a spot on the right-hand side of England's defence. As with Shaw, his club situation is yet to have an impact on Southgate's decision to select him for England, but Maguire's confidence is clearly low and questions about his position continue to loom as the World Cup approaches. He has not started any of United's last four Premier League games and will certainly need to rediscover his form at Old Trafford to dampen the negativity surrounding his continued England selection. A mix of selection and injury has meant Phillips has played just one minute of Premier League football for new club Manchester City. That didn't stop Southgate from including him in their final 28-man squad, only Phillips pulled out as he required surgery for a shoulder problem, which could still rule him out of the World Cup. Rice and Bellingham have impressed in his absence and now Phillips - England's 2021 Player of the Year - faces an uncertain few months for club and country. A good start at Newcastle gave Pope a chance to prove he can put on the gloves for England in Qatar. With Pickford sidelined, Southgate had Pope, Ramsdale and Dean Henderson to choose from, but stuck with the former in both games. Having had little to do in the defeat by Italy, Pope's ability with the ball at his feet was found to be lacking against Germany before pouring a tame Serge Gnabry shot down Kai Havertz's barrel when the Chelsea striker at Wembley scored a late equaliser. With the time for experimentation over, Ivan Toney was the only uncapped player called up by Southgate for his final pre-World Cup squad. However, the Brentford forward was left out of the squad against Italy and was an unused substitute in the draw against Germany. Having failed to make his debut and only 26 places up for grabs in Qatar, it remains to be seen whether Toney has done enough in training to convince Southgate of his abilities at this level.

Jaylen found a unique motivation to fuel his summer training

Jaylen Brown announced Monday during Celtics Media Day that his summer training was fueled by an item from Boston's NBA Finals Game 6 loss to the Golden State Warriors. (Author: Gardener)

JaylenJaylen Brown did everything he could to make sure he didn't forget the pain the Boston Celtics lost in the NBA Finals last season. At each of his summer practice sessions, Brown wore the same pair of Nike Kobe V sneakers he wore during the Golden State Warriors' Game 6 win at TD Garden. "This summer, I wore the shoes I wore to the last game of the season to every practice this summer," Brown told NBC Sports Boston on Monday's media day. If you see the shoes now, they're damn close as rags. Brown said he was toying with the idea of ​​wearing the tattered gold shoes to Media Day. Instead, they hang at home as a reminder of the work that still needs to be done to complete that final step. "I can't wait to go back this year just because last year was over," Brown said. This off-season, this summer, I've pushed myself to just get back to that point to be able to start the season again. And now, fast forward, here we are. "It wasn't a great summer. It was a great summer, but it wasn't a great summer to have to live knowing you were in the finals and you dropped the ball, even if it was against one of the biggest teams in the NBA league. History or whatever it was a home game we were 2-1 up so when you start breaking it down and looking at it and looking at those games - Game 4 and things like that - don't you feel great. We were first It's been an interesting offseason for Brown, who once again mentioned his name in trade rumours, this time amid breathless speculation about Kevin Durant's future. Brown admitted the rumors still frustrate can but vowed to continue to do his best How confident is Brown that he and the Celtics will weather all of the recent adversity, including injuries that have left frontcourt depth d teams have undermined, and head coach Ime Udoka's year-long ban? That's a great question. All I can say is I'm really excited," Brown said. "So this presents challenges that I don't think everyone realizes are on the other side of the door. "I haven't gone through anything like this before. Jayson [Tatum] hasn't been through anything like this before. There is a lot going on, but that will have priority - we can start training tomorrow. This will be great for getting things going. Because basketball is a great leveler for everything. So we look forward to playing a good ball.”

Results of the AEW Dynamite Grand Slam 2022

AEW Dynamite Grand Slam 2022 with Jon Moxley vs. Bryan Danielson, The Acclaimed vs. (Author: Gardener)

the AEW Dynamite Grand SlamThe AEW Dynamite Grand Slam featured five matches, including Bryan Danielson vs. Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship, and the actual main event of The Acclaimed vs. Tony Khan slammed Twitter fingers leading up to the Grand Slam, hitting WWE on the low Raw -Viewership of the week against Monday Night Football and also criticized his relationship with Saudi Arabia. AEW Dynamite Grand Slam also saw the arrival of Saraya, formerly known as Paige, who has been the subject of return rumors as both WWE and AEW reportedly showed interest. Saraya saved Athena and Toni Storm from a caning at the hands of Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Serena Deeb. Saraya will be a welcome addition to an AEW women's division which, while not lacking in talent, has gone stone cold. AEW Dynamite's show last week was huge with 1.175 million viewers. Dodge in our glory | AEW World Tag Team Championship Swerve in Our Glory | AEW World Tag Team Championship Chris Jericho couldn't help but play 100% babyface by default as over 12,000 fans sang his theme song at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Grand Slam featured very impressive crowd shots throughout the large stadium. Chris Jericho surprisingly adhered to the code of honor by shaking hands with Claudio Castagnoli, only to promptly slap Castagnoli in the face. The fans were huge for Jericho's big win and it feels more like the Ring of Honor Championship was won by Chris Jericho and not the other way around. Keith Lee hit an impressive hurricanrana early in the game to the delight of Arthur Ashe Stadium. There was one weird spot where Max Caster went for the Mic Drop elbow but landed on his leg and started selling his knee. It may or may not have been a planned spot, but Caster was able to continue the match. Caster later hit the mic drop for the big win. Swerve Strickland accidentally hit Keith Lee with the boombox as the teasing for their inevitable feud continues. MJF interrupted Wheeler Yuta and the shift in energy and charisma couldn't be more obvious. MJF welcomed the cheers he received from this New York crowd while also insulting them by saying he would never sleep with any of their wives. MJF (and AEW) didn't even pretend that Wheeler Yuta had any personality, and neither did this massive crowd. Wheeler Yuta played the role of "AEW Locker Room Guy" and was mercilessly booed for it, all for the benefit of MJF - who continues to threaten to join WWE. Wheeler Yuta referenced MJF's engagement while MJF clapped back by mocking William Regal's pill popping. MJF ended up being booed when he attacked the lovable Tony Schiavone. Throughout the match, Orange Cassidy mixed his signature comedy spots with more intense, hard-hitting moves, as the story of this match was that Pac didn't take Cassidy seriously as a wrestler. Nobody in the wrestling business takes DDTs like Pac and he went out of his way to prove it tonight. This women's department is ice cold. Except for Britt Baker, no one really got a huge ovation, and while they kicked their asses off, the reaction from fans was lukewarm at best. Fans finally came alive as Athena did the Top Dolla Double Fallaway Slam spot with Serena Deeb and Britt Baker. Jamie Hayter and Britt Baker reunited before defeating Toni Storm. This gave way to the surprise debut of Saraya, and if this ice-cold women's division could use anything, it's the artist formerly known as Paige. An interesting note used to promote this match was that Bryan Danielson had avenged every one of his losses in AEW except for his loss to Jon Moxley. MJF watched from a skybox while holding his Casino Battle Royale chip and was featured throughout the game. It feels more and more like MJF is cashing in his chip under the money-in-the-bank rules. There was so much footage of MJF during this match that it was basically a triple threat. Jon Moxley delivered a surprise curb stomp (on the Achilles tendon) in this match before hitting the Death Rider, which Bryan Danielson kicked off.

Michael Caine's"You should've just blown the frigging doors off!" Michael Caine's famous line from The Italian Job echoed in my ears as I read Labor's 2019 manifesto. "You should've just blown the frigging doors off!" Michael Caine's famous line from The Italian Job echoed in my ears as I read Labor's 2019 manifesto. The document will be hailed by socialists for many years, but it may have killed Jeremy Corbyn's chance of winning the general election. The document will be hailed by socialists for many years, but it may have killed Jeremy Corbyn's chance of winning the general election. Labour's manifesto proposes additional spending of £83bn a year and a £400bn transition fund over the next five years. Labour's manifesto proposes additional spending of £83bn a year and a £400bn transition fund over the next five years. Two weeks ago, the Tories were widely criticized for estimating Labour's plans could cost over £1.2trillion in total. Two weeks ago, the Tories were widely criticized for estimating Labour's plans could cost over £1.2trillion in total. Spending on a million social housing, public sector wage increases, free broadband, green transformation etc. totals £800bn, according to the manifesto. But that's before counting the costs of six major industry nationalizations, the four-day work week and the freeze on the statutory retirement age. I found myself agreeing, policy after policy, to a lot of what Labor is demanding. Railway nationalization, check. Windfall profit tax, check. A financial transaction tax to curb reckless speculation, check. But the problem is the sheer volume of spending commitments. According to Labour, this is twice as expensive as their much-vaunted 2017 manifesto. Labor not only threw up the kitchen sink in this election; They tore up the floorboards and walls and put the house on the largest peacetime spending program in history. Nicola Sturgeon must be tempted to say 'take it forward' because if Labor's plan were ever implemented it would pump around £100billion into Scotland through the Barnett formula. There's little point in offering election gifts that people don't believe in. The BBC Question Time audience is not representative of the electorate, but the reaction to Labor's plans has been revealing. They will no doubt appear in fake Tory "fact check" posts from now until Election Day. The IFS is the gold standard for public spending. Johnson claimed Labor must do much more than just tax the top 5% of earners and raise corporate taxes. The new taxes on profits over £80,000 would only bring in around £6billion. To have a Scandinavian level of government provision, the UK would require Scandinavian taxation – for all of us. Now the Scottish Government has already achieved many of Labour's goals - tuition fees, free tutoring, low carbon emissions - without much borrowing. Nicola Sturgeon refused to tax top earners at 50% on the grounds that they would simply leave the country and reduce overall tax revenues. In some respects FM's tax policy is more radical than Labour's. It increased taxation of those earning less than £50,000 by freezing the threshold for higher taxes. Labor appears to support Tories' tax handover by raising threshold. Jeremy Corbyn talks about the "Billionaires" as if shaking their pockets would finance the New Jerusalem. But there are only 151 of them across the UK and they would be shrinking before you could say inheritance tax. We can say good exemption, but the top 1% of earners currently contribute 28% of tax revenue. Some of that can be replaced by taxing the rest of us, but it won't happen overnight. Labor plans to tax corporations and confiscate 10% of their wealth, but many of them are only here voluntarily. There was a reason Labor handed out those pledge cards in 1997, which promised no tax increases. People just didn't believe Labor could be trusted with the nation's finances. It took endless repetition of the tax promise to convince voters that Labor had changed since the 1970s and was no longer the 'tax and spend' party. But now they're promising spending programs that appear to be even bigger than they were in the 1970s. It was then that Labor finally called for a bailout from the International Monetary Fund in 1976. This, combined with the industrial chaos of the 1979 winter of discontent, led directly to Margaret Thatcher's electoral victory. In 1997 Labor was eligible again and, under Tony Blair, won their biggest landslide of all time. This allowed them to introduce the minimum wage, impose a £5bn windfall tax on utilities and double NHS spending. Taxes were also increased, but mostly in secret, while then-Chancellor Gordon Brown preached endless sermons about his love of "prudence" in tax matters. Prudence has left Labor and was last seen in Angela Merkel's Germany. As in 1997, most Labor policies are fairly popular. The labor movement is once again moving with history as it seeks to curb capitalism's privileges and reduce distorting social inequality. Most voters support the NHS and want it to be properly funded. A 5% tax increase for those earning over £80,000 is also popular. But voters are extremely skeptical of the pledges politicians are making at election time. The great danger for Labor is that people will simply dismiss this as the Corbynite pie in the sky. Ahead of the election, some Conservative insiders said the reason Boris Johnson started talking about spending on 40 new hospitals, gigabit broadband, infrastructure and schools was to force Labor to promise even more spending in order to maintain their status to be maintained as a party of the left. However, the Tories shouldn't quite count their chlorine chickens just yet. All the evidence is that the Tory electoral lead is fragile, with a large number of 'don't know's. People don't like Mr Johnson and the privileged class he represents very much. Mr Corbyn isn't trusted much either, but it would only take a few heartless remarks and disingenuous politics for voters to decide: what the hell, at least with Labour, I might get cheaper Netflix. There is still time, then, for Boris Johnson to throw away his poll lead like Theresa May with a muddled manifesto and callous disregard for the less fortunate. People are realizing that we need to invest in infrastructure and in essential services like the National Health Service. But Labor refuses to join her in delivering what will soon be the second-longest suicide note in history.

The Celtic Lessons from the end of Tommy Burns' unbeaten streak as Ange's reaction is appreciated

Postecoglou's 364-day domestic unbeaten streak ended at St Mirren last weekend but Billy Stark is not worried. (Author: Gardener)

Tommy Burns'Billy Stark knows better than most that a winning streak at Celtic comes to an abrupt end. Ange Postecoglou's 364-day domestic unbeaten streak was finally ended by St Mirren in Paisley last weekend. It reminded former Hoops assistant and janitor Stark of his own spot in the magazine in December 1996 alongside Tommy Burns. No team but Champions Rangers had beaten Celtic for over a year but that was jarred by Motherwell. Scotland U19 manager Stark recalls how the 2-1 defeat sparked criticism and hysteria and he believes it is an example of no-compromise action in football. He said: “I remember sitting in the dugout with Tam when we lost that game at Motherwell after going unbeaten for so long. "When you build a winning streak like that and it comes to an end, it's amazing how quickly people lose track. So I was pleased to see that Postecoglou wasn't too nervous about the loss at St Mirren. "He knows that all runs have to come to an end, that's part of football. It's inevitable, but you keep going as long as you can. "Ange will keep things quiet as this is his style. I watched the game against St Mirren and it was a classic example of a side emerging from a European game and a manager deciding to make a change of personnel. That's the easiest part for people to judge, it's always easier after the event. “There is an argument about the problems of refreshing the team after Europe as you can lose points just like Celtic did at Paisley. There's the big European away game against Shakhtar Donetsk and all the emotion and energy that goes with it. “But I was wondering if Celtic would play with the same team again after the St Mirren game because of the international break. They left out people like Jota and Reo Hatate who are huge creative forces on the team and are obvious. But Stark doesn't think any of those players need to carry the can. Instead, he pointed to the rotation problems after a European game against a side like Shakhtar. He said: "It's a simplistic view to think that these players should have played for the sheer joy of the game and should have done a lot better. It was just one of those away games where St Mirren broke through, Celtic huffed and puffed, but they didn't really manage much. "St. Mirren has shown they have a capable and physical side that is well organized and difficult to break down. Celtic didn't break through early and then they lost a couple of goals – that happens in football.” Stark watched from the outside as Postecoglou replaced Neil Lennon as manager and reclaimed the league crown from Rangers. Stark said: "I never met Ange but I was very impressed. “If you look at where Celtic were when he came in, he did an incredible job. He was given the resources to recruit, but this market has been amazing to him. "Most of his other signings have come off as well so it's been absolutely amazing work he's done." Celtic's European and domestic commitments are a big factor after the international break and Stark admits there are some prophecies of doom will be before the Hoops receive Motherwell on Saturday. He said: "The Motherwell game is next, then it's RB Leipzig - it's thick and fast. But I remember watching Rangers in an Old Firm game last season before a big European draw. I thought if they lost those games the manager would be under a lot of pressure. "They managed to win them, but that's the way it is with the Old Firm. When there's a loss, people immediately look beyond that and start putting pressure on the next game when another loss would be seen as a disaster. “Motherwell will be like St Mirren, they are strong and organized and Celtic never have it easy when they play them. “It's still early in the title race but Celtic have recruited far better than Rangers. Both clubs are in the Champions League, which fits European standards and that will be a factor given the strength and depth. "I would make Celtic title favorites - but there's still plenty of football to play."

A brilliant touch from Andy Murray turned the match

The big immaterial question in Andy Murray's semi-final was how Marin Cilic's fitness would hold up after his three five-setters and after an hour we seemed to have the answer. (Author: Gardener)

Andy MurrayThe big, intangible question in Andy Murray's semi-final was how Marin Cilic's fitness would hold up after his three fives got that far and after an hour we seemed to have the answer: no problem at all. Because Andy was nervous you never know what someone like Marin can do, especially when he's only 21 and super fit. But then Murray's devastating forehand came at the break point, and suddenly Cilic went from 100 percent to 75 percent, and Andy went the other way. It's tempting to say that we haven't seen a point that changed a game like this in a long time, but in fact something very similar happened just 24 hours ago. That was the match here and we saw the Fed win the next 13 games and have a shot at the final today. If he wins he'll face a super confident Murray who will be thrilled he ended the match so much stronger than when he started it. That incredible forehand he rolled around the net post in the last game will have brought him great joy because if he manages to chase that ball down it will show him how all the hard work he has put in every day Day invested, paid off. He's in such good shape and has his matches in such a short time that he'll have enough fuel for five hours of the final – it'll be like having two extra cans of fuel in the back of the car. Of course, there's a lot more to Murray than fitness, and if you wanted to see a measure of his talent yesterday, it was the way he stood three to five feet from the baseline to take Cilic's second serve. The Croatian gives him a really mean kick and only the most talented can take it as early and rising as Murray. I liked how he did it. But it all came from that break to make it 3-2 in the second. Before that, his other problem was that Cilic returned incredibly well, even firing Andy's first serves deep into the back of the court and allowing him to control many rallies from the baseline. He was the real aggressor and must have figured out a strategy because he didn't want to get into a drawn out match that spanned several hours. You could tell he was trying hard again midway through the third set, but the match was probably over since Andy's level had risen so much.

The student leadership takes action against the garbage on the tailgate

Student leaders are taking the initiative to fix the garbage problem in the recently remodeled parking lot in front of the Peter Recreation Complex. (Author: Gardener)

the Peter Recreation ComplexAfter the Sept. 3 football game in South Dakota, a now-deleted tweet showing the trashed tailgate parking lot after the game was viewed over 19,000 times. The tweet drew attention across campus and on social media, including a post from Barstool Kansas State and a response from BigGameBoomer. Karen, sounds like you need to be put into a nursing home. Maybe next time the university will provide some bins/bags to dispose of it.

"On that last tailgate, we were right next to a dumpster, so we just filled a garbage bag, never let it overfill, threw it in the trash, and broke out a new one," Kodl said. Changes in student arrivals, result of new soccer facility Ward said Acacia also brought their own garbage bags, but there was little opportunity for those who didn't bring things to throw away at the South Dakota game. Though it was an unfortunate event, Ward said he thinks things will get better as people get used to the new parking lot. Tailgating was moved from Lot 9 outside of the Peter Recreation Complex because of the expansion of the east parking lot at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, said Parker Vulgamore, student body president and senior in agricultural economics. Vulgamore said he has set up a task force to hold discussions with employees about tailgating issues and solutions, including the litter in the parking lot. "We've started handing out a little flyer and handout with all parking permits when you pick it up," Vulgamore said. "And yes, we were able to place trash cans more strategically." The flyer lists tight policies -- including alcohol policies -- and a reminder to "be proud of our campus" by disposing of trash properly. Animal science student Ava Perrier said she rode at the South Dakota game and other games last season. She said garbage was also contaminated after the game in the previous Lot 9 tailgating area, but worries about the future of tailgating in the new location. "I don't think it would be that hard for people to just throw out their trash," Perrier said. "I just think people need to realize that if we keep making a mess like this, those privileges are being taken away from us." Vulgamore said he wants students to know that parking is available to all K-State students. "The student parking lot, it's not just fraternities at all," Vulgamore said. "I hope that more students can learn about it and use it more because it's a lot of fun.
