Lots of empty green space on the hill for the run down

Saturday. You can clearly see it in this persons video on You Tube. They just don't seem to be able to fix this problem. Why just not add a new section of premium priced seating on each side of the strip that the players come down?

I think they just don't see it as a problem. Its been like this for several years with no real effort made to fix it.

Agreed. Looks bad on TV. Many schools have added club style seating around their team entrances including UGA. Can't help but to think people would pay a little more to sit in upgraded club seats within feet of their team running down the hill.

That would be great. Screw the students to accommodate some rich people.

I think they need to add maybe 5000 more student seats. In the lower deck. Most students don’t get even close to the same experience that we did in the 80’s. Most only get to go to a couple games, if that.

So instead of rowdy students, we should have half-populated club seats with people doing a golf clap as the team runs down the hill?

Then what happens with the area where the team runs down? It just stays empty during the game?

That is very simple to fix. Have it first come, first served seating for the students. The process for student ticket assignment is broken and needs to be fixed.

Or make the hill first come first serve for anyone wanting to buy a ticket.

Do you see the mass of people at the top of the hill and to the right? That’s students trying to get to the hill. They are there but not allowed to get to that side.

All the AD needs to do is quit blocking the aisle so early. There’s really no need to block it off until right before the busses arrive.

Very serious problem imho. The hill looks really bad even for bigger games on band side and has for 3-4 years now. It does fill in a little better after the carpet is rolled up. Factor in the balloons being gone and a half empty hill the atmosphere is unfortunately just not the same. Central Spirit or some group needs to get involved with game day opps.

I have long thiught they should add seating, only leaving a 20-30 foot wide strip for run down***

It’s the same story as past years. They shut down the aisle at the top of the hill way too early. They don’t allow anyone to cross within 30 min of the hill entrance. The students enter gate 1. If they aren’t on the hill very early they can’t access the north side until after the entrance.

It’s totally the fault of the athletic department. Students are just standing and waiting for them to let them cross over.

All they have to do is wait until the buses pull out and stop foot traffic at the hill then.

This is 100% correct. It was a problem I was encountering 10+ years ago***

Administration or Athletic Dept has done this and it is frustrating.

Back in my day we fixed this problem by sending one student out with two hill tickets. Got the stamp on one persons hand. They’d lick it and apply to the other hill-less students hand. Both would go into the hill. Problem solved.
