I don't think the problem is students not showing up, although I think that number is probably up from when all the seats used to be in the lower bowl.
I think they are letting too many sit in the lower bowl before making the call to start sending them to the top. I dunno who makes that call or how they do it, but the lower part looks extremely packed compared to the rest of the stadium or or how it used to look in the student section. It wouldn't surprise me if you have some students that sneak back down there, lord knows I would have.
Whatever the problem is, it needs to be figured out. It's an embarrassing sight to see that big of an empty block. If they aren't going to sit there, take their tickets away.
I have been saying this for every "student section thread" started. The do let more than capacity in the lower bowl causing the upper section to look empty. Last night there will people standing in the aisles and everywhere else so I know the upper deck was going to be filled. Honestly as a student I would be happy if the cut all the upper deck tickets and gave the student one extra section in the lower bowl. No student should have to sit in the upper deck but I guess that is there fault for not getting there early.
I agree with Harrison. Let another section into the lower bowl. Our fans think they're at a tennis match half of the time. If another fat woman tells me to sit and be quiet even though I'm not cursing or anything, just yelling on defense, I may blow a gasket. Sorry I've been in these seats for twelve years and you're just here to have background noise while you knit yourself a cheeseburger you fat fat lady.
Next time, why don't you tell her (in a nice way) if she would stand up and cheer, she would lose some of that weight! LOL
