    Hilton or Jack Trice: Where would you prefer to have better seats?

    More of a what sport would you prefer to have great seats for - basketball or football.

    Vote and discuss.

    Not a "which seats you want to upgrade" - but more of a "If I could have the best seats in the house, which venue/sport would I choose?" discussion.

    I love my end zone seats at Trice, so I would definately prefer better seats at Hilton...

    I'd take a football game ten times out of ten over basketball.

    However, with great seats in basketball - you're basically in the action. Football, you're never really nearly as close as you can be in basketball...so I'd go with Hilton. :)

    I just can't stand a poor field perspective in football the same way I am able to tolerate sitting behind a basket in BBall.

    Re: Hilton or Jack Trice: Where would you prefer to have better seats?

    Tough call on 2 of my favorite places. I would go with Hilton because of the sport. Football is naturally played on a bigger area so being right next to action is great, but not totally necessary. Basketball court is much smaller so in my opinion much more important to have the great seats.

    I'd take football over basketball anyday.....

    Football - there are some bad seats at Jack Trice. I really don't like the hill side seats.

    Basketball - for most non-conference games you usually can move down without having good seats to start with. For some conference games this season it seems to be happening with also.

    Tough call. I choose Hilton because there would be more games to enjoy my prime seats!

    Re: Hilton or Jack Trice: Where would you prefer to have better seats?

    Courtside Hilton, didn't even have to think twice about this. I've watched from the sidelines, endzone, and upper deck in JT and while all 3 have their perks I think the first part of the upper deck is the best place to see the whole field at JT. Sidelines was fun and a new way to see things but hard to see plays develop at times. Also, endzone was cool to see when the action was on your end of the field but once they got to to about the 30 a 2 yard and a 20 yard run looked about the same almost.

    Having been in the front row of both Hilton and JTS as a student, I'd say Hilton hands down.

    No doubt about it!

    1st row balcony ...50yd line. Best seat in Trice. I'm requesting those very seats this year!

    Hilton - the play development is much more important to see in football, and the action is more spread out. Being close in basketball is a much better choice. I'm going to miss being a few rows in for basketball once I graduate...

    Re: Hilton or Jack Trice: Where would you prefer to have better seats?

    Definately Trice, there isnt a "bad" seat in Hilton. You can see what is going on all the time. I have the end zone seats at Trice and havent actually sat in them for 2 years as you cant tell how many yards a play gains due to the angle behind or in front of the play, plus I have to turn my neck all the way around and watch the play on the big screen to tell, might as well be at home if I am watching a screen the whole time. Trice at the 50, 15 rows up on the East side behind the good guys bench.

    I would disagree. Whichever seat is the furthest from the action and the walking tacos is a bad seat.
