    That side of the stadium will need to be re-lettered right?

    Hopefully with more room over there, they can space out a little more. It seems we have 10k students show up for the first game and 5k by the end. Their area is so tight kids just don't want to deal with it and would rather stay in the parking lot and drink, or leave after the 1st half to go have a beer and be able to move their elbows. I hope with all the additions we do give them more seats. We had PLENTY of visitor and section K seats last year and always managed to cram 8k students into 4,500 seats.

    Hopefully that will be the case.

Somehow I doubt this is exactly what the seating will look like but dumber things have been done in Statesboro.
    Actually would only leave 2100 seats because unless the Sun Belt has changed the number the home team is required to provide the visitors will a minimum of a 1000 tickets which are not general admission tickets.

    If I remember correctly, someone was throwing around some numbers from the card swiping system they use to check students into the game and either last year or the year before it was 9500 ish students per game, sometimes more. I know a lot of them get there late and end up either cramming into the student sections or sitting on the hill. I have been in the student section the last few years and can vouch that for some of the bigger games there are easily twice as many students in the stands than they were designed to fit

    If I remember right our record for students at a game was somewhere in the 13,000 range (I think at a Furman game around '07 or '08) If we can make the students more comfortable during the game they might be more likely to come or stay for the whole game.

    Record for students was ~11k at the 2005 McNeese game.

    I was PISSED OFF leaving that one too. That was before I was mature enough to calm my nerves after a loss.
