    Hillside Season Tix a Good Idea?

    Considering buying hillside season tickets, are they a good idea?

    I've never been over there for a game. Sat in plenty of other locations around the stadium and it was great. I do not have kids & I like to stand up and cheer. Is it a good place to be? I'm thinking the area right next to the student section would be the idea spot for me and whomever I bring to the game. Any details or experiences you can share would be great!

    Re: Hillside Season Tix a Good Idea?

    I had hill sides last year. It gets you into the stadium at the cheapest price. Which is probably why i love them so much. Though i only sat in there for the oklahoma and baylor game it was still a ton of fun. If you enjoy being next to the student section do that for sure. But you will miss any replay on the jumbo tron. I still loved those seats though and definitely most bang for your buck

    I bought them a few years back and always sat in the visitors section. Not sure if the stadium people are more diligent now, though.

    If we suck then its a great buy but bad football.. I we are good then you are not going to like your seats, but at least the football will be good.

    Get them and just sit(stand) in the student section.

    Had hill side season tics for 2years pretty much sat in the SE hill so you can see the jumbo. Than waited for friends to call so we could move to seats. Now have season tics in section 18. I would think it will be harder to move to open seats now with ticket sales a record breaking pace.

    Re: Hillside Season Tix a Good Idea?

    I'd say no. Hill sides are awful. I get them every now and then when I bring the wife and kids. You can get a family into the game dirt cheap. That said, hill sides are uncomfortable as hell for me. I couldn't do it for a whole game and with the record ticket sales I'd say you better just splurge and get real tickets if your plan is to move to seats later in the game. I'm not sure that's gonna work much longer.

    Do it. There are always open seats somewhere. I bought 2 this year just for the Iowa game.

    Or don't stand in the student section. It's gonna be bad enough the way it is. That hillside won't be vacant of students either.

    Hillside tickets are better than no tickets.

    Agreed. It's their time and their section. Don't cheat the students.

    This is what I'm doing next year. And there's nothing they can do to stop me. *Maniacal Laugh*

    Re: Hillside Season Tix a Good Idea?

    Just to be clear, I didn't ask originally about finding a vacant spot in the stadium somewhere. I know that is a possibility, especially late in the season if we struggle. I'm curious what the experience is like on the hillside, in my "assigned spot."

    Thanks for all the feedback so far. I think ianoconnor nailed it by saying 'hillside tickets are better than no tickets'.

    Do tons of kids run around? Do people stand or sit? Can I see the field alright? etc.

    What if you are a DMACC student but previously went to iowa state. Also in your college years?? What is the ruling? Because i agree that i dont want to see some 28-55 year old dudes in there
