RE: Student Section in Trask
As far as changing things back - there are obstacles. When the benches & scorer's table were moved it was when the new floor was installed. All the cables for scoreboards, public address system, power, etc. were moved & placed under the floor. I am pretty sure there is no good "quick fix" for this.

Seasons over for home games. Time to start thinking about changing Trask back to its old configuration.

Devil's advocate for a minute. How many home games have we lost in the last three years?

Good point. But...it is not the same atmosphere as it was in the past. Ask any of the people that saw games there in the late 90's ...early 00's. The atmosphere can be even BETTER than it is now...therefore..."change it back!"

If you look at old video you will see the student section packed from side to side with everyone standing. That is still an option it just requires the administration to allow students to pack it in and for students who do turn out to spread out and stand the whole game. When you stand it forces others to as well

Speaking of which, would love to get my hands on a panoramic still shot of Trask ( old configuration) packed to the gills to hang on my wall.

I agree it's not the same atmosphere. Solo is right. I think it can be what it was without moving things around. Allow more students down low and encourage their millennial arses to stand. They rep'd well this year it seemed from afar, by all accounts. Encourage them more.

I agree. Time to bring that back. Gets the crowd motivated to make that meter triple digits

Ummm. How about let's get the students back filling seats on a more consistent basis. They did not show every game. And I'm not talking about when school is out.

Students did not show EVERY game but for the most part the student section is on the right track. Senior day game I turn around to see why people behind me aren't chanting and its because there are parents right in the middle of the pack!

If the students fill out their section, stand and cheer the entire game, and block the view of parents, I would be willing to bet some positive changes would occur

If students don't pick up tix by a certain time, it's offered to the public.

Why do students have to pick up tix? Why not let them show up at the door and walk right in?

I was talking to my wife about this last night, She graduated in 96. and was shocked that they had to go get them. She said she would just show up with her friends and they would get right in with a student ID.

It was still like that in '06 when I graduated.

Seems to me if they want better student attendance, remove the barriers to entry. Half the fun of going to the game was standing in line to get in. Also, cram those bleachers full if too many show up.
