Default Williams-Brice Ramps

The Upper Deck ramps...

Pros: Fairly unique. I haven't seen another stadium where the ramps are exposed to the field like ours. Nice tradition of people watching the game from the ramps. Easy to walk up and wide enough not to cause huge bottlenecks.

Cons: Lack of foresight means no upper-deck bowl EVER unless we tear them down and start over.

What say you?

They're unique to the stadium. Would be insanely expensive to remove and replace. Only expansion will be over the student section, but that's way down the road.

I think they should cover up the openings. So people couldn't stand and watcht the game from them.

Wouldn't that cut into the capacity numbers?

Seating capacity is 80,250 so I assume that to get things like the record crowd from the UGA game this year of 85,199, a lot of that came from people watching from the ramps?

I never understand why people would wanna watch the game from them. You can see better from your seats. And the stadium wouldn't look as empty.

I have sat at tbe very top az well you can see more of the field but the action on your end of a ramp is a whole lot better view. Imo the best seat is the first row of the upper level along one of the 40s

Come on Pantera, you've been around long enough, get some tougher skin.

He wasn't calling you stupid, he just... well, OK, he was calling you stupid, but still, it's just because he thought what you said, the words that you typed into the computer, were stupid.

I'm sure he still holds you in the highest regard.

No way! I love standing in the ramps. We sat in seats for the first time in years today, and while it was nice to sit down every now and then, I missed my ramp.

The only advantages to the ramps are you can stand and no one around you will complain.

Back in the older days you could also smoke on the ramps, but of course that ended
