    New Seats are Great

    If you get a chance to sit in the courtside seats. Take em. It's kind of weird sitting that close to the action but it's well worth it. Also there is a suite behind Cyclone Alley where the band was getting ready that has a few flat screens and some mini burrito's that were great. All around a good time at the basketball game. Also Cory Johnson look's huge when you stand next to him. I went saturday night. Decent turnout. There were a lot of season ticket holders that did not go. Cyclone Alley looked to be drunk and worn out before the game started. Oh yeah the Mayor was there and he signed some autographs. I was kind of suprised with the NBA season going on that he would be there.

    Re: New Seats are Great

    I was there Sat night and was able to move down to some empty seats. I had never been that close before and let me tell you, if I win the lottery, that is where some of the winnings will be going. Sitting down that low really gives you a much different perspective on the game. You can really get an idea of the speed and of course the size of the players.

    A great weekend of Cyclone sports.

    I won't comment on my seats - they're pathetic:)

    I had remembered you saying you would be sitting there. Are you going to be there again this season?? I was trying to guess which one you were (from my seats close to the roof!!).
    I've sat on the edge of the floor many times, and the thing that strikes you is the sheer physicalness of it, if that's a word. Especially the big guys fighting for position.

    It's hard to see around Mac. He is a big guy and stands most of the game. I need to move up a few rows:)

    Re: New Seats are Great

    Back in the day, I used to coordinate the ROTC colorguard, so I'd sit in folding chairs, in front of the band. And you're right about the physical nature of college basketball. We'd be disappointed if we didn't get sweat, spit and snot sprayed on us.

    Now THAT is the way to watch a basketball game....

    Re: New Seats are Great

    I will be sitting there most of the time. We also have 4 seats in row 2 I think it's section 24 or 22. I forgot. They are behind GMac so yeah I know he is tall. For the record when they were warming up. I got the rebound (ball bounced to my seats) I grabbed the ball. Threw it to Cory Johnson and he drilled a 3 pointer. He turned around and told me I got the assist and laughed. So my line looks something like this from Saturday.

    tell him to sit his *** down! You help pay his salary! But then again he's big enough to choke-slam you on the court, and that might hurt a lil.
