    Figured it'd be that way sooner rather than later.

    Hopefully some of the old farts running the scanners can be efficient because I've seen a few struggle with them at Hilton even

    Re: No more tearing tickets at the entrance

    I wonder how far off going completely "green" is and just giving season ticket holders a scan card.

    Of course, the inevitable question... will you be able to 'scan out' and back in at halftime?

    So much for pre-tearing your tickets in an attempt to get up the hill faster

    Re: No more tearing tickets at the entrance

    Are they going to change the re-entry policy this year? I know that was in the works but I can't remember when it was going to go in affect.

    I think that's a good question. I always thought that they would do away with the re-entry after they finished the east side restrooms. But they didn't last year. Maybe they are waiting for that south side addition to finally do it. Or maybe they just didn't want to **** people off coming off of a crappy season. To me, either they eliminate re-entry this year or they wait until that south endzone is totally finished.

    Of course, I wish that they'd never eliminate it.

    This.

    I think a lot of those who are going to leave are those who tailgate fairly close and can go back out to the tailgate for halftime. Anyone in those lots likely pays at least a decent amount to the department, so cutting the re-entry policy might not be a great idea..

    I'm in those lots and wish re-entry would not be allowed.

    This would be excellent. We could implement a "priority points" system for seating, similar to many other schools. More events you go to, better your seats are for "prime" events (football, MBB). Increases attendance at non-revenue sports as students go to more things to get their point level up.
