    Re: Student Section Changes

    Huh? IS this about the possibility of changes, or pointing out changes? Either way, the OP makes no sense.

    Re: Student Section Changes

    This would never happen, but I think it would be cool to see the students fill up the entire arena circle on all 4 sides. (Lower part of baselines and the 4-5 rows of plastic seats on the sides)

    yeah that'd definately be home court advantage. That was my second choice after the C-Shape just because I doubt the ath. dpt. would give up both season ticket holder's best seats

    Re: Student Section Changes

    watching the illinois - michigan state game made me want to see our student section look like that: the students cover the entire lower section all around the court, but they also have a raised court, so the students standing don't block the view of the donor/season ticket holders - so I don't think we would ever be able to do it.

    Re: Student Section Changes

    We wouldn't have enough students at games to fill the whole sideline... It would look pretty sad.

    I would go to the sideline first before i sat on the baselines. so i think if anything wasn't gonna fill it'd be the baselines. The sideline could just be 6 rows up like michigans (and maybe not even all the way across)

    Re: Student Section Changes

    There is nothing wrong with the baselines, you get to be right in the action... I would LOVE to have the seats the student section has right now.

    Re: Student Section Changes

    Screw the student section. Spread the students out through the whole arena. That way the whole place will be loud and make everyone get involved.

    Re: Student Section Changes

    yep i would love to see the students fill arena circle all around Hilton. Just DONATE $25.000 or more and knock your selves out. Or maybe your dads and moms paying your tuition could help you out......

    Yeah, or those of us who are paying our OWN way through school could catch a break from the University Athletics teams we pay MORE money to support.

    Re: Student Section Changes

    Would like to see either one or two sections behind basket continue... and then either one or two sides all the way around just for the first five rows. This would go up to the cement barrier. Students should still be able to stand and people behind them should still be able to sit. Get rid of the upper deck student section ASAP.
