Is first come, first served important?

Some seem to think so...
Should Clemson go back?
Not that we don't have a great environment - is fcfs better?

Inside the stadium, the change in vibe begins in the student section. Texas controversially displaced some season-ticket holders to create a contiguous student section, but officials considered this a critical element. (Texas sought the advice of consultant Guido D’Elia, the man responsible for creating the gameday atmosphere at Penn State, which is home to one of the nation’s great student sections.

Martin and Del Conte eliminated a lottery-based student ticketing system that gave students assigned seats in favor of a first-come, best-served approach. “It’s like the difference between having a flight on Southwest Airlines versus a flight on United,” Martin says, referencing the Lone Star State-based airline that famously does not assign seats. “If you’re flying Southwest, you’re going to get your butt to the airport early.”

great idea. I think Greek life in Clemson will squash it, but it would make people who really want to be there get there.

Why do you think Greek life will squash it? How do you think Greek life will squash it?
I believe there should be one class of student ticket available and the students should be in one giant block on the lower level home side. I believe every student should have the opportunity to be at the game as one of the privileges (not a right) of choosing Clemson. I’d put a time limit on the availability of those student tickets, something like Tuesday of that game week, then the ticket goes to the public for sale. It can’t all be about money. The school needs to be about the school and that starts with the students.


Admittedly, I'm not up to date on our current student ticket process, but

my understanding is frats and sororities get block seating. I'm thinking they don't want to lose this perk. They are already organized and would be in best position to offer a stong voice of opposition.

It's the fraternity ALUMNI, who have disproportionate pull at the university level.


All student organizations/clubs can get block seats,

The hill is smaller because they reduced the amount of tickets sold there and do not allow students or fans without a wrist band to get on the hill

I like it. If students have to show some effort, they will be more likely to show up and stay.

I like the "less ads on the scoreboard" part.

It used to be like that at Clemson

When I was at Clemson ('83) the frats and sororities had block seating but it was at the top (not prime). Go had to go to the library to pick up your tickets every week. Seniors went on Mondays, Juniors on Tuesdays, etc. The most passionate students got the best seats. There is nothing wrong with having to put in a little effort to get your tickets.


Someone would have had to point out the library to me first.

Excuse my ignorance, but I graduated in '11 and didn't keep up with it after that. Camping out was a big deal, and IMO is the way it should be to have the best student section you can have.
