    Should I buy reserved or GA seating for Wells Fargo?

    I just found out this evening that I'll actually be able to go to the WBB game against Georgia Tech. Tickets are still available, but not many. I need to know whether I should buy a general admission ticket or a reserved ticket (section 322, row A, seat 13). Where do the GA ticketholders go? I'm a student, so I'm going to stand and yell the whole game. I'm sitting on these tickets and renewing them every 6 minutes, so I'd appreciate a quick answer.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Should I buy reserved or GA seating for Wells Fargo?

    We bought all session tickets which were in the corner. We wound up sitting in GA behind the GT band with friends, and they were better seats, so in retrospect, we didn't really get an advantage by buying all session tickets.

    You live and learn

    Anybody need tickets for tonight?

    Re: Should I buy reserved or GA seating for Wells Fargo?

    Heh, you were right behind me, then. I bought GA (way better deal than sitting all the way up in the rafters). I was the guy in the front row of 124 with the cape and Cyclone gear on, next to the two guys with the big yellow foam hats. (OskieClone is one, and I forget the other guy's screenname, but he's on here, too. Sorry, JR!)

    After reading all of these, i can now confirm i am in the same boat. If i go monday, I'm def. getting GA. I just figured in the first place that GA would be all the way up in the third level.

    Hey, I was in section 204. Yeah, they were on the second level but they were right on the half court line, I loved those seats! You could see all of the plays developing... Totally worth the $45 for two tickets!

    Re: Should I buy reserved or GA seating for Wells Fargo?

    I ordered "best available" last October and got first row seats. Turns out not to be as good a deal as I thought. The dames in blue shirts sit at the same level right in front and we couldn't see the floor. Even without them, vision is limited. We moved up and back. I hope that option is available tonight or we're standing the whole game.
