YES absolutely. but, I also feel lik they need to figure out a way to support their team by staying put.
This may be a chicken/egg scenario though. If the place were rocking, they are much less likely to leave. And if all their friends got to come with them. I could go on, but we can disagree about what would happen if it were to occur. The bottom line is something tells those other schools bigger student sections are better, and we are 11th in a 14 team conference.
That and they have literally the worst seats in the house when it comes to sun in your eyes/heat. So I would cut them a little slack on that front when all the players are passing out from the heat too. I personally think they should get some of the best seats in the house and stick the opposing fans in the sun.
