    These threads need to stop and are pointless. This is real old real fast.
    Just a quick suggestion. After class this afternoon, see if you can schedule an eye exam.

They should have left it alone and moved block seating over one section like they did. The university should get a lot of blame for adding student seats that the data clearly shows there was no demand for.
    I can agree with this. See this is how a debate should go. The other nonsense being spewed is what drives these threads over the edge.

    Oh good one real mature from an "adult". I was not saying student section was full. Just that the bottom part was as full or more so than the rest of the stadium. But it does seem like some of you need eye exams.

    So is the school not for the students? I must be here for no reason huh?
    That's not what you wrote in your previous post. You are there to get an education. So was I many years ago.

    So, if you pay $1000 for a ticket, then what do you pay for tuition? Maybe you didn't know, but many of the TF members are alumni of UA ,including the owner and many of the mods. We went through a lot to be able to earn a degree from our great university. Just because you are a current student, doesn't mean you are any better than the many fans that weren't students. Have you even considered that these people pay the taxes that subsidize your tuition? That shows a lack of gratitude from you. Many of these fans have been on the Tide Pride waiting list for years. They have every right to be mad that almost 7000 students who had tickets did not show up for the Auburn game. You guys have a losing argument.

    Good, man. Thanks for asking. Just trying to make a living so my children can eat. Fortunately, the subsidies NYBF sends down every year buys them shoes. Friday night final? What kind of major you in? I'd choke a professor for less than that.

    See, we can all get along.

    Yeah, I graduated in '90 and well recall the Greek/Machine influence. Of course there was also a cocaine ring being run out of the SAE house back then too. Remember them getting shut down for a year? I would hope some things have changed for the better.

    When y'all can fill the rest of the stadium then complain. Plus again it is a school for students and it is student athletes therefor it is for students not you.
    You realize most of us went to school at Alabama, right? And no, the Alabama football team is not just for students. Not sure where you got that idea. All we are asking is that students act like it means something to them. And if they can't do that by filling up the stadium, take those seats away and give them to someone else.

    And you are paying for your education. The tickets are a perk.

    Who said I'm an adult? I've got the mind and body of a 18 yr old. Strapping, I believe, is what the older folk would refer to it as.

    Lookit, you've seen many on here, myself included, say we've long sided with the students on these types of issues. But the cat's out of the bag. And if you want to be "grown up" about it, you have to understand, which I don't think you do. Some day, you will.

    And yes, I do need glasses.

    This is not rocket science. The lower bowl was full. The upper deck was not, and has not been since they went to this system. It was a stupid idea to split up the student section in the first place. It's time for a change. Maybe the educational quality at Alabama has fallen since I went there.

    Why not get mad at the non students for not showing up? You make it sound like I'm not grateful to go to school here when I work my tail off to be able to. You are making this that I should be grateful to you and alumni..why? Because you pay taxes like I do myself through my job? What makes y'all so much better? I am not saying that student are better now. Not saying the upper section should be students it should be given to others. I'm just tired of so many complaints about students when the same can be said about the general public.

    ha, i remember the SAE coke ring and their suspension well, after bama, i became good friends with a guy that was an SAE, he didn't like to talk about that too much . i would say that a majority of the drugs that made it to campus in those days came through the greek system (or so i was told ). i think the thing that ticked me off most about the machine was the closing of bama bino's. it was swill pizza, but for $5 for a large 'za and coke (with commemorative cup perfect for keg parties ) i lived on it.

    Yes, you work so hard in college. But don't worry, soon you'll graduate and it will be easy street from then on out.
