    South end zone. I am standing outside of the goal posts. If our kicker misses the FG AND the new "Waffle House" net, hits me, causes me to spill my beer, I will go f'ing off.

    Presumably it's the food... but the food's not that good and certainly not worth that much. I've always been mystified by Tech Terrace. I've been there several times for various events but really never understood the attraction.

    Everybody does. The question is how to achieve it. Hiring a coach who Tweets non-stop is apparently a good first step.

    EDIT. The most obvious place to look for more butts (though not more dollars) is the students. Our student attendance is insane. Pretty common for the student sections to be 80% empty, even during "interesting" games. I'm always shocked by it.

    Don't these kids know they can watch TV and play Xbox the rest of their lives, but they only get 24 special Saturdays (30 in the case of the slow ones) to come to Grant Field as a student?

    I know that I am in the severe minority on this one that most Tech students miss games for the reasons you said (Netflix, vidya games, etc).

    I only sat in the student section for a couple of games because the atmosphere in the south end zone was MISERABLE for anyone who has any idea whatsoever about football. People cheering at completely the wrong time - zero clue as to what was going on. And zero willingness to learn.

    Don't get me started on the "analysis" that these kids threw out. Over current half of Tech students are a... special... breed. For those of you who graduated 15+ years ago (and haven't kept a pulse on things), student culture has definitely changed at Tech - and not for the better.

    For the football games that I went to, I had a better experience buying a regular ticket/s on Stubhub. But again, I realize that my experience was not that of most, only reporting why I did what I did.

    Can you give us any examples on any special interactions you've had during games?

    As a student, I always sat in the North end zone, so my experience was definitely different.

    Maybe so, but they also want/need money.

    I hope he'll tell us what he thinks about it. It's a bargain for sure.

    If you're going to pay grad athletic fees you have to get your money's worth.

    I think this is the year I’ll budge up to 225. My favorite section.

    If the students are leaving the south, I suppose, looking at the pic, that they will wrap further behind the lower east.

    I'd really like to see some of the east box seats contain fewer opposing fans too
