    If it is basically a tailgate in the upper deck that is honestly pretty badass

    If you have to reduce seating anyway, this is a good option IMO.

    Winning is the fix to the seating problem.

    I like idea. However where are the fans that will purchase this? In the past, if fans occupied this area, it was visitors or a big game with reduced prices.

    Maybe this appeals to this who are tired of the bleachers. However a $2700 donation? Good luck.

    Split between 10 people that's nothing. It means your season ticket is $525 but you can offset that by bringing your own food and drink. If you just brought your own tall boys to every game you would break even.

    Even when we win pretty big those two sections are basically give away seats - especially after NEZ expansion.

    The back side of each section has an overhang for shade. And the West side is in the shade for games that aren't 11am kickoff.

    Kudos to Cohen for fighting for us to have late evening/night games in Sept.

    This seems like a decent way to keep visiting fans out of Davis Wade. Or really make it slightly more difficult.

    Since this is about raising revenue and filling the stadium with MSU fans, why not put MSU staff tickets up there and open some of the best seats in the house to higher paying customers? At least They probably wouldn’t sell their seats to LSU fans. Secondly, as someone who pays high rates to get equivalent seating on the lower level West side, I don’t see how it is fair to charge West side a big donation for the seats, but not for essentially 50 yd line seats on the East.

    Y'all are way more social than me. I might know 10 State fans. I certainly don't know 10 that go to games. Ha.

    But I've always liked that view from the first few rows.
