    Will The Students Show Up?

    or will there be a ton of empty seats in the balcony yet again? When a top 10 conference team comes into Hilton and there is whole empty sections again, then something is wrong and changes need to be made. There is no excuse for having so many empty seats like that for a big game.

    Will someone start another thread on student attendance?

    I can't go, but if I did I would leave at the 4 minute TO to make sure I got out of the parking lot first.

    You'd be stuck in traffic, have to leave much earlier than that.

    not huge numbers. I just bought tickets from cyclones.com and there are maybe 500 seats left, all up near the rafters

    Don't worry, I leave my seat at the 8 minute TO to stand around the balcony and then once the 4 min TO starts I sprint to my car. At that point traffic isn't too bad, usually only a few hundred people have beat me to their car.

    That's some nice planning on your part, you must be a veteran.
