    I would say Westbrook and Beverly are bigger. Although this is a close second. Embiid needs to focus on actually beating Westbrook first. 17 straight loses to OKC...

    It always hurts to lose, but man that was a fun second half to watch. Looks to be worth every penny of the price of admission

    Oh I love the SEC Network. If I can't go to A-Day, or an away game that is not nationally televised I can watch it there. Same with Auburn basketball. I can't not watch an Auburn game. I would say The Tailgate Guys are a wash since inception. On one end, if you wanted the spots they occupy now you had to be there reserving the spot Friday morning and had to stay there until 4:00 PM before you could stake your claim. With them, you have the spot reserved and set up for you. You also don't have to worry about your tent, chairs, TV, etc. being taken because it's not yours to worry about. The downside is all of the tents look the same. It was fun to see tents of different shapes, sizes and colors. Gave it a more authentic feel and less streamlined. But there are still plenty of spots to do your own tailgate!

    The whole campus really makes you appreciate Auburn's campus a lot more. It is Auburn's ugly twin. I applaud Auburn for their work outside of the stadium, making sure the brick matches on new buildings, creating walkways for pedestrians, easy to navigate traffic routes, etc. All Clemson has on us is Lake Hartwell, which is my favorite lake to go to. Want to know something funny, Clemson's copy of our Samford Hall, their clock tower is fake. It doesn't work, never did.

    That is also a good point. You may see in the coming years, some stadiums downsizing because empty upper decks to not look good on TV. How many times have we seen some bowl games where the bowl sponsor covered sections of seating with advertising tarps due to unsold tickets? In the long run, not adding seats may help Auburn if they allocate their money to other aspects of upgrading the stadium. As I say this, that means the ticket prices will remain high as their are less seats to go around, which is a downside.

    If anyone should be upset with their stadium, it should be Clemson. With what their program is today, their stadium is much worse than ours is. Their jumbotron is very tiny and standard definition and you can barely hear anything. The seating is very confusing with trying to find your seat and the food wasn't good. It was also difficult to find the gate to even get in the stadium. Clemson's traffic plan is also the absolute worst. To the point that they need to be embarrassed. In 2017 it took us 2 hours alone to get out of town of Clemson.

    The majority of season ticket holders renew their tickets no matter what the season is projected to be. Win or lose we are in that stadium. There is more than the game itself to wanting to be there for gameday. I was there in the 2012 season, and I was there for the 2010 and 2013 seasons. It's the atmosphere, it's the people, it's the old memories, and the new ones to be made. It is so much more than wins and losses. The biggest factor that is impacting ticket sales is the ability to watch all of the games from the comfort of your own home. The SEC Network really made sure of that. And this is impacting all sports. I have faith that Greene will make the right decisions going forward however. Arenas and stadiums are now going for premium experience to entice fans to watch it in person. Atlanta has done this recently with their new stadium with premium, low cost food and their Hawks arena remodel with TopGolf coming in and installing virtual bays and plush seating. If I were Greene, I would start with continuing to upgrade the user experience before adding seating. Right now we are good with everything outside of the stadium and our traffic plans. We are out of Auburn within 10 minutes. We got a good start with the state-of-the-art JBL sound system and video board and renovated bathrooms and TV's mounted everywhere. Right now we are in the process of upgrading the suites. My guess may be the concession stands, adding better food at lower prices. Once attendance goes up, we add more seating.
  10. After every game Auburn posts a hype video so I wanted to post them here for your pleasure. Feel free to add any I miss. Note there is a separate thread for the Auburn Everyday videos.
