Default What is a good seat and a bad seat at WB?

I want to take my 13 year old to the UNC v Gamecocks game. I have not been there in 20+ years and really don't remember it. My budget allows for 500 level tickets. Most of those are between $100 and $150 and are in the 501-3-4 sections.
What is the actual view from there ?
How many rows are there?
At what row does the view really get bad?
Better off watching on TV and try another game for Bette tickets and prices?
Buy from stub hub or ebay? If not, where?

Thanks for any feedback!

Go to gamecockcentral.com Click football and then tickets. They have some at around 85$ and it shows a lot of sources for buying tickets.

post an add here in the tickets section, you might get something good for a decent price. Usually you can find decent seats at the stadium before gametime. I sat in 508, 30 rows up a couple of years ago for bama. You just can't beat the electricity of a game no matter where you sit.

You wont be sitting anyway. You'll be jumping and screaming! You can always be ramp rats like me and mine. Screw the seats, we get a great view from the corner ramps!

Here you go, shows you a good idea of what your view would be from any seating area.

Welcom to the board WKHHW! Here is a link to a virtual tour of WB. You just need to put in your section and row number and it will give you a look around the stadium from that perspective.

http://www.seats3d.com/ncaa/universi...306_2/p_306_1/

I bought 4 season tickets in section 306 row 12 for me and my wife. I use the extra two for friends and family who want to pay what I paid to use them. I am reserving a few games to some of my investment back. You can check with me when you decide what games you may want to try and get to and I'll let you know if they are available.

Also, CT is an alternate place to buy tickets. We're all fans here and people often just want what they paid for them when they can't make the game. Just go to the Cocky Swap forum frequently. I have been very successful at that in the past.

You can always IM me and I'll help where I can. Good luck.

I sat in 503 for the UGA game and the seats were just fine. I've heard end zone seats aren't that great though..

Do not sit in the upper deck of the south endzone if you can avoid it. If a play happens in the back of the south endzone you can't see it.

Bad seats are:
The north end zone, or the lower deck of the south end zone;
Any of the seats in the corners between the end zones and the East lower deck.
Any seat in the lower deck below row 20, and that is REALLY pushing it.
An seat in 301,302, 308, 309, 501, 502, 508, 509, above row 30, and really you should just stay home. I know, I know, the press box is higher than that, but you need binoculars at a certain point, unless you just want to watch the game on the jumbo tron.
I am sure there are some lower seats on the west lower deck that could be questionable, but, remember, the west lower deck starts about 4 feet off the playing surface, and the angle of the seats increases more acutely. On the east lower deck, the lowest seats are at ground level, and the angle increases very little in the lower rows.

On Monday @10am, go to Gamecocksonline.com and buy them for face. They still have a few thousand left but you have to be in the Gamecock Club to buy right now. I would do that before paying almost twice the face value of $60.

If you're planning to sit in the upper deck just buy tickets outside the stadium. I'd be shocked if you weren't able to get two for close to face value. I know it's tough to make a trip without tickets in hand if you're far away but with this game being on Thursday there will be plenty for sale.

As long as you are on stadium property, the law says face value. If you go across the street or over in the fairgrounds parking lot, they can charge whatever they want. Just go to the stadium over by the store and you will see people holding tix in the air. You will get those for face value and sometimes you can even get really decent seats.
I will never forget the day I paid $45 for a zone pass. They have a huge buffett up there. All you can eat free. Free sodas and iced tea. 40 big screens showing every other game on at that time, and those seats were cushioned like a lazyboy with your own arm rest and all.
Because the guy was standing on stadium property I got it all for regular ticket face value.
I wish I could afford season tix, but I can't. However I still go to 3-4 games a year and have never paid over face.

Florida and Clemson are both sold out. You can still get season tickets but that is the only way to see those games, as you can not buy them individually. And yes USC does this every year so that they can still sell full seasons for the next couple of weeks.

Tell me why the North End Zone is so terrible? Is it because its all Rowdy Students lol?
