That’s right, after a lot of talking it’s official. They’re moving the student section in 2011 and adding 800 seats.

The new system is pretty complicated, and would take a rather long time to explain without just pasting the article here, but the link can be found here . But, since it’s my blog, I get to spout out my opinions on the interwebs.

More students closer to the field=louder student section.
More students in student section=louder student section.
Upper deck bounces the sound down to the field=louder student section.

There are negatives involved with the move, but there are negatives about where the section is now. A nice thing about coming in through Gates A and B is that it could allow more students to enter at one time, and keep the 15 minutes-before-kick-off rush to a minimum (don't tell them they can get there earlier though, it is a secret).

It’ll be a fun thing to try out when Alabama comes to town for the second game of the 2011 season. If that game isn’t going to be a White-house I’m not sure what is.
