I was one of the season ticket-holders who was moved from my seats (moved from section 144 to the East endzone this season), so I knew there was some realignment coming. Still, I didn't know exactly what it would be.
I was very glad to see that we've finally moved our band. For years, I've thought it was stupid that we had our band in an area where they were playing into the open end and a good chunk of the stadium couldn't hear them due to being above them. Putting them in the center of the open endzone was a great move. Kudos, Mr. McGarity. He really does see the big picture when it comes to the little things, and he's enough of an insider from his previous life in Athens that he can get away with moving a few season tickets around for the sake of the stadium atmosphere. Here's to hoping he puts some more student seating in the lower levels of Stegeman (e.g. how Maryland does it) while our season ticket base is still small.
The one thing that surprised me about the realignment was that they were going to put visitors in section 144, which is right next to our own students. Was anyone near that area yesterday? If so, how did it go? Were there several dozen cops in the aisle in between to keep the peace?
