BREP NATION returns for the 2019 season to enjoy a Scarlet Knights win!

BREP Nation 2018 crew assembled!

After a long offseason and an exhausting pre-tailgate Friday afternoon addressing parking pass allocations, Car Number designations/occupents and late breakfast cooking options, BREP Nation reconvened in the supplemental black lot to start the 2019 season. Down the BRES family, Basil, and a few key LaBues, Chris stepped up to get us organized, as well as taking on the grill chores to get the cooking done.

Welcome to Dana partaking in his first tailgate as an official BREP Nation member. Cousin Bob, Glen, Donna, nephew Indy, (not Southside) John Lyon, all aptly stepped in to fill out our crew. The fierce corn hole action returned in a Sayreville alum brawl with the Twins taking down Bob & Glen.   
John Lyon steps up with a needed red tent!
John added to the morning event by buying a red tailgate tent. This will be his last RU game before going to Sweden for work, cheap unassembled furniture, and the meatballs.  A Rutgers car magnet was presented for use in Sweden to remember BREP Nation.

Facelicking as requested!
First Labue sack of the season !
             Game day anticipation was high in the tailgate for the debut of the local kid at QB, Old Bridge's true freshman 18 year old Artur Sitkowski (some how not related to any of our  many BREP Nation members of Polish ancestry). Not lost in this excitement was also the start at left guard of South Amboy's own Nick Krimin opening holes for the ground game. Rutgers did not disappoint with RBs Raheem Blackshear and Jonathan Hilliman each scoring two touchdowns to defeat Texas State 35-7 in the season opener.
