I didn't realize it or thought about it much but it appears that the favored frats & sororities were getting the best spots for the games.

The Machine lives.

As one who has lived through the ordeal of "newboy seat saving" there was no such thing (then) as a favored frat/sorority getting good spots. It was a first come, first served. However, it was common for groups (mostly greek, but others as well) to send 4-6 pledges/members to save a few rows for your members.

Our frat bought "Coke" and ice company uniforms for the newboys to wear, so they could sneak in before the gates opened and save the best seats. Worked well until the cops caught us. 03-lmfao

Well, the UA Greeks are welcome to come to our OCS and we'll be happy to show them how diversity works in a university setting.

No, wait...

RE: OT: Calling Out Bama's "Good Ole Gal" Sororities
With all the uproar & the announcements over the weekend that minority pledges were invited as well as accepted, I wonder how many were in the sorority in question? I've seen nothing said in that respect so I wonder if it's all just a smoke screen & nothing has really changed & that those minorities would've been invited/accepted by the sororities that sent them out in any case & UAT is just using that to show things have changed but really things haven't???

It was mentioned the number of minorities that were invited, the individual sororities were not mentioned.

While it is wrong to exclude others, I don't believe in counting the number of minorities for public broadcast either.

I had a high school basketball coach who was pretty much the worst coach that you could have, however he did do something right.

When he was asked how many white players were on his team he responded - I don't know, I haven't counted.

Take a screen shot or a picture and use paint to make it underlined.
