The atmosphere at current dudy can be lacking. I go to multiple sec games there every year. Sometimes it's good. Sometimes it's not. And the lack of a designated student section with 5k rowdy drunks would sure help. And that grassy are is not going to produce this. I just assumed over the last year that y'all were going to build a student only area. Why not do it? You are building freaking condos.
I love how y'all automatically assumed I'd be jealous. I'm not. It's exciting and I can't wait to go with my bros and sit on the dugouts. State games and om games are two totally different things for me personally. I go to Starkville to chill, eat peanuts, and watch the game from a cozy chairback. And it delivers. I go to swayze to get drunk, party, and have a blast. And it also delivers. We don't need a huge grandstand because our fans don't want to sit there. Swayze is perfect for our fanbase. We are making some slight changes that you will notice. And somehow we are going to expand outfield sitting areas.
i havent assumed anything, i merely read your post and it sounded butthurt to me. there is plenty of seating for students. not all of them want to sit in the same area. that is the beauty of it. there is grandstand seating, berm area seating, LFL seating, take your pick. if they made a student only structure, it wouldnt be full because many students want to watch it in the LFL or in right field or like back in my day, the bleachers. people dont want that and i dont blame them for wanting options.
regarding atmosphere, states is bar nun the best.....not my words, but those of several national publications. om fans poo-poo it all the time and say swaye is better, and thats fine, but they are the only ones that seem to think so. im not begrudging you opinion, merely sharing mine as well. om fans are obviously free to think whatever they desire, but those adjectives used in your description (a description of what will be easily the best stadium in the country once built) is petty. there will be zero let-down when it is unveiled and it fulfills everything we wanted. if we wanted something like om has, we would build it or people would be asking for it. nobody is and i have given reasons why something like that wouldnt be ideal at DNF.
