    Also remember that catering to the student ticket holders is not a bad thing. They are customers, and they pay a lot of money for their seats (tuition, housing, books, etc). You have to keep your customers happy. If the product - and the product is more than game play - is inferior, they will leave. And, to be honest, I don't have a problem with it. It is their time to invest as they deem fit.

    If you want them to stay, give them a product worth staying for. In games no longer in doubt (or never in doubt), give them a form of entertainment that will make them want to come out to the game and stay until that entertainment ends.

    In my limited research on this, I believe Dixieland Delight was banned circa 2014. My son, who didn't step foot in BDS until 2016 is fully aware of the added lyrics by the students so any thought of waiting for a new crop of students that don't know the additions is not realistic.

    At LSU, we have our own banned song, "Neck". One of the things that made it great was it was the band and not piped in music. You can youtube it to see what the STTDB stands for that our students added. It was "banned" in 2010 or so, but occasionally makes an appearance, like last year when Odell Beckham watched a game from the student section and told the band he would pay the fine, so they played it. Our stadium rocks when that song is played and we went so far as to have players beg the students not to chant the vulgarity. LSU distributed literature requesting we keep it clean. None of that works with 18-23 year olds.

    It's a shame that two awesome bands, MDB and The Golden Band from Tigerland, are no longer the centerpiece of the game day experience. Now, let me go yell at someone who is on my lawn.

    Seriously though, that song may contain anthems that aren't politically correct, but it was written and understood as a positive song about the state. I've never heard anyone say it wasn't positive.

    And Dixieland Delight is a good song too. Alabama is one my favorite all-time bands, even though I'm not a huge country fan. I'm just not a fan of the ignorant vulgarity. I also don't think the song's banning has anything to do with all the empty seats, and I think that will prove itself out over time. If this is what it takes to get young people engaged these days, well so be it I guess. I'll be over here yelling at clouds.

    They did play it during a commercial break at the 2016 Bama-LSU game. It’s still pretty cool how the crowd is for that song.

    I’m in the minority here too. At least play DD during a commercial break so it’s not on TV. Times have certainly changed a lot since I was a student. I sat through four years of blowouts and don’t remember the student section completely emptying out. I did plenty of cussing as a student but not in public, around women or in church.

    Re: “Dixieland Delight” Has Been Set Free

    When you often have the coach up on the jumbo screen shouting the same cuss words, it's seems a little hypocritical to make an issue out of the language the students might use. Granted, we don't actually hear the words Saban uses on the sidelines, but it's lip-reading 101 to catch what he's saying.

    If blue language is good enough for the coach, why not the students too? It doesn't bother me coming from either.

    Dixieland Delight is about audience engagement and participation.

    several years ago i ran across rocky horror on tv late at night. it got awkward when i started doing the time warp by myself and i turned the tv off and went to sleep.
