So if we put in fold-down seats, it would cost about 5-10 million and the stadium capacity would go from 80,000 to 70,000-74,000. So ticket prices would need to go up by 10-15%. If we're going to do this, then we need to sell beer.....if you buy 3 beers, they throw in a pretzel.

i knock the salt off because unsalted sucks, but they are too salted. if you knock the salt off it leaves it the right amount of saltness because some of that salt soaks into the bread.

I know places (bars) push salty snacks to get people to buy more drinks but that popcorn is like taking a bite of desert sand. If anything it is encouraging people to smuggle in more mini-bottles.

Bathrooms first...screw concessions
Nothing wrong with stadium access...ever been the TN?
We really need to fill our stadium for a few years and make the tickets dear before a thot is given to expanding

I think the mods should consider an entirely new forum, the "B-I-T-C-H Forum". A place for people to do nothing but complain.

It would be great if they would have kept the lower deck completely bowled in. Maybe we could do a modest expansion/renovation to the lower deck to bowl it in again and have all of the underneath look as good or better than the west lower.

Additionally two smaller video boards on the southeast and southwest corners would be really nice. Also add more ribbon board to fill the empty space on each side of the existing ribbon boards. More room for advertisements so that shouldn't hurt the bank account to bad.

The best way to pack the stands besides having a great team is to provide great amenities.

I think they should build towers/walls in the north end zone above the student section and have box/porch style seating. Just small rooms with a porch to watch the game from. They would be expensive tickets and it wouldn't be that many but by just blocking in that open area it would also increase the noise dramatically. I am kind of joking around haha but at the same time it would be awesome, unique, and intimidating.

Do you see the old horsetrack that used to be around the fairgrounds? You can see it at the top of the first picture. Not sure how many knew about this

Good callout i have never noticed if they are in (besides the high $$$ seats) any stadiums.
I've got chairback, fold down and a cup holder. You just have to pay for them.

Well if we cant fill the Brice now how would it hurt to install fold down seats. At least we would have sold out games.

For everybody saying get a new stadium or we complain too much check the original post.

To everybody else saying we have maxed out and are in debt, you're wrong.

That's what I was thinking. If we can't sell out anyway, we might as well add the fold down seats.

When we added the East Upper, I think we sold the lights from the East Lower to Clemson. They are still used today.

I purposely avoid them. Something about peeing out in the wide open with nothing between you and the dude(s) next to you. Crud, I try to avoid the toilets too. Anti-diarrhea medication works wonders when I work the gates and watch the game.
