    Pollard considering assigned seating in student section

    I think assigning a seat to students would help the madness rushing in before the game and prevent people from coming in off the hillsides to sit in the student section. They should seriously consider this.

    I don't see what would be wrong with this as long as they assign them at the gate so those first in line get the best seats up front.

    Re: Pollard considering assigned seating in student section

    That would be dumb.
    That's part of being a student in the student section. Mass chaos, crowded, people on top of people, rushing to get good seats, etc. They're young, they can handle it. This might be the first time I have disagreed with JP.

    Re: Pollard considering assigned seating in student section

    I think that would be an awful idea. You want the packed (over-packed really) student section.

    Better yet, stop being stupid with the gates and let students enter through any gate they want

    Well currently they cant even scan students tickets because a giant mob thunders through the gates as they open and there are probably a good amount of people getting in who dont even have tickets.

    Some universities supply wristbands. If that was done then you would know which students belonged in the student section and still be able to have general admission.

    They could make this better by letting them in different gates.

    That's a good problem to have. Better than having no students wait in line and slowly walk to the front row just a few mins before kickoff.
    And lets be honest, how many games per year does that happen? Maybe the first 2-3, depending on our opponent and the weather? If we lose it won't be a problem anymore.

    Bingo.
    Instead of giving students tickets, give them wristbands for each game.
    No wristband? No student section.

    yep, students only have themselves to blame. Doesn't seem like they can handle the freedom.

    Thats a good idea, but wouldn't help the mob before games

    What's interesting is Pollard's quote: “We’re aware of the challenges," Pollard said. "I wish there was an easy fix.”

    Has he not even looked at what other universities do to solve this problem?

    Then open student gate an hour or so earlier.
