    Hey Fanatics, got some friends who are looking at season tickets for the first time, they were asking if there was a bad seat in the house, IMO I don't believe so. I'm not a big fan of the end zone seats, but people like them. Just wondered what everyone thought?

    I would say that the endzone seats just got a lot better this year due to the new video board.

    Hillside sucks. Other than that, I'd say no.

    I got a Hillside seat one time. Never, ever again. Terrible vantage point. Lots of unsupervised kids screaming, tripping and running into people. Might be fun if you didn't like football.

    I sat in the 3rd row on the 50 once, I could not tell what was going on at all. I would rather sit in the first row of the balcony.

    I have yet to find a seat in JTS I didn't have a problem with sitting in. I've sat in the endzone seats, every corner of the upper deck, and down low. Liked them all.

    Only place I haven't sat is hillside.

    This would also be my preference for a seat.

    I think the only thing that makes a really bad seat is being next to someone obnoxious or a Hawkeye fan.

    I sat next to Hawk fans for the last Iowa-ISU game. I didn't mind that. A great chance to talk trash, and strangely enough, the Hawk guy wasn't real bright.

    That seat was in like the 3rd or 4th row, and the view is extremely difficult. That part was rough.

    Sat on the hillside for a game last year, and I really didn't mind that. It was a fun spot. I prefer my regular seats, but the hillsides are OK.

    Or a Husker fan (Thank God that won't happen anymore). I had to sit next to a Husker fan last year and he yelled at me for clapping too loud. I died laughing in his face.

    Hill side bites - too many little turds rolling down the hill into you. And an occasional drunk student that rolls down the hill into you too.

    Especially when you're related to them.

    I should have bought season tickets in the endzone rather than the student section.

    I concur that DD is a great place for the game, have loved my seats there for the last two years. Also the obnoxious fan is generally my drunken alter ego "Victory Helmet Man", I make no apologies...

    If you are sitting on the dumper when we score a TD, that's a bad seat.

    That's where a good friend of mine was during "the run"! She is still mad about that to this very day

    Sometimes, I have a bad seat. If "the Football Professor" is in his seat, mine is a bad seat.

    IMO there are no bad seats in the Upper Deck. In the lower deck corners its really hard to see what's going on if you're in the first 10-15 rows.
