    Tarp it or put an LED board across the top. Moves everyone closer and looks better on TV...
    Could put whatever hashtag message on every other tarp if money isn't there for LED board. Do GT logo and every other one 4 time nat champs etc. Thoughts?

    I know the edit is crap just wanted to get the concept out there. Could also take tarps off if attendance allowed it. All across numbers are down though so I love the idea of getting everyone closer to the field for noise and for visual purposes. Could increase the north seats by $5 a game to help recoup some of the lost money on games the tarped seats would have been used.

    What is the reason for the overhang on the right side?

    Sell each panel for commercial advertising. (Or all to one advertiser)

    Those are good seats 218/219. Letterwinners Club is underneath.

    I've long advocated tarping off the top half of upper north for low demand games. Beats empty seats. Fill in the upper sideline corners first.

    I do not like. Miami tarping off seats is one of my favorite things for which to laugh about them.

    I'd rather people laugh about a tarp / tarps than laugh at 13k empty seats with 1 or 2 families sprinkled in. I would love to see the tarps and by 2022 a bad ass LED board. Could have primarily GT info and scoreboard stuff on it but also scroll across advertisement for revenue during the game. Then when a kid comes on a OV have his picture that he took in the locker room with the GT swag up on the new LED board in the north endzone and also in the south

    why not provide discount tickets for north end zone to anyone who can verify their 404 area code?

    For September games, this might be a popular option. Maybe even charge extra if they staff it with Cheetah girls.

    And tarps are more embarrassing than empty seats

    Why not build luxury boxes and chairback seats with enhanced concessions there with elevator access? I assume we do not have any regulatory issues for the North endzone. We should be able to sell boxes to Waffle House, Chick-fil-a, Coke, Delta and many other major Atlanta Corporations.

    Agreed. Tarps are an indication of giving up on ever filling those seats.

    The entire stadium needs a face lift. I think those gold seats need to be removed! They always seem to be empty after halftime.

    How about 218 & 219 lower, the section that hangs down, redo the section into terraces connected to the new Edge Center. Serve food, beer, comfy seats, have cover from the sun. Premium

    Top rows in the Upper North are golden on early Sept. days. You get an awesome breeze. It instantly gets 20 degrees hotter once you come down about 5-10 down from the top.

    I'm sure the 17 of you who sit up there love it.

    Attendance is down across the entire NCAAF and pro sports. Need to focus more on the stadium experience and also consider how ööööty 7-10k empty seats look when recruits are here. I'd rather have it louder and more packed with everyone lower than spread out over an area that should have never been built or at-least not to that degree. Seats weren't filled after 2014 orange bowl season before the wheels came off. Hell we only had 2 sellouts pre north endzone in 1991 after we won it all and still had a decent team. Took UGA and Ironically unc to get those two sold out in 91
