    NCC lots should open at 7am, regular pay lots should be 6 hrs before gametime. So 1.

    But someone might want to find out the real answer, there has been discussions that NCC lots might not open till 1.

    For the Kent State game the NCC lots won't open until 1pm. It's written on the parking pass.

    For the rest of the games they will open at either 7am or 6 hours before kickoff...whichever is earlier.

    Unfortunately they don't oversell anymore. It was nice when they did because it brought people out early. Last year we sat alone until like 5:45 or 6 when people finally started showing up.

    So THAT would explain why they always seemed so empty compared to very full the years before...

    Re: Parking lots Thursday

    Was a VERY late arriving crowd last year and I would expect the same this year. It's the Thursday night game that everyone hates (with the exception of the students).

    Which is silly because it is not like 1 single student is going to go home for the long weekend when they JUST left home 2 weeks ago.

    I agree entirely but it's pointless to get in this discussion with them again. Needless to say the crowd would be larger and the tailgating would be better if we opened this Saturday (history shows this to be the case).

    Nevertheless, I took Thurs/Fri off from work and will be up there right when the NCC lots open at 1pm.

    I've been lucky enough to have parking passes in the S lots given to me over the past two years, and I've never seen them "full". I've actually wondered why they don't lower the price ($1000 NCC contribution) to get use of the spaces? The B&C lots are full but the closer S lots appear under-utilized.

    Re: Parking lots Thursday

    Basically now that they are charging $50 for a pass, plus a donation of at last $500 to guaruntee you can order a pass, donors want to have a space there when they can get there.

    Most near the stadium are donating at least $1,500 or more, plus everything else. They need to know there is a parking space that will be there if that is what they paid for. Regardless of if they arrive early, or late.

    I understand where you are coming from, but as I see it, even if empty, each of the parking spaces was filled by someone who made the donation to get the pass. I want to see them filled to, but the spaces were already paid for at a higher donation level.

    It's pretty sad, but some students actually do go home for the weekend.

    That having been said, I prefer the game on a Saturday. Some of us actually have class in the afternoon on Thursday... and even if I don't have class during the game it does screw with my game day experience. That or I have to follow Bret Meyer's advice...
