If there was justice in this world, this would happen.
If someone wanted to go on an archeological hunt you could find my opinion on this from a few years back but I wholeheartedly disagree. Please keep in mind that maybe 50% of reserved seating actually goes to fraternities. If I remember correctly from back in 2004, there is also reserved seating for SGA, ROTC, and many other student organizations that are not greek.
The fraternities and organizations put in a lot of work to earn those seats that normal students don't. They go to sporting events other than football, they show up to pep rally's and they participate in parade's etc... These are all things that independent students could do, but they rarely do. There will be a few independent students at pep rallys and other sporting events (usually baseball and basketball don't count, just on one or two specific nights) but the greeks far outnumber them. If there were no spirit points, there would be no homecoming parade, and no pep rallies but student tickets would be first come first serve.
Secondly, there is nothing stopping other students from forming a group SOLELY for the purpose of getting reserved seating. If that many students are really that upset about this, surely they can go and earn spirit points themselves and force some of the smaller fraternities out. But they don't. They just sit at home and complain rather than taking an active role and participating. These people do not deserve reserved seating, I'm sorry.
Just as background, I am completely biased, I was the person responsible for my fraternity first earning spirit points back in 2004. I was also in the marching band and didn't even sit in the seats that I led them to earning. It takes a lot of effort to get people out to some of these events in any significant numbers and we were up against organizations much larger than our own.
And these same people that attend events just for spirit points leave at halftime. It's so embarrassing and tacky to see huge groups of frats leave basketball games, volleyball games, etc. at the half after their spirit points have been counted. They should be required to check in at the beginning and end of an event to receive the points. I was a member of the marching and pep bands for the last several years. This is my first year not in band.
Oh, and it's been several years since there's been a parade on campus-- I want to say the 2005 Beat Bama Parade because I can't remember if there was a Burn the Bulldogs Parade in 2006 or not. There definitely hasn't been one since the 2007 season. This would be a great year to bring back the Burn the Bulldogs Parade! I'm not sure why the parades have disappeared the last several years. The 2005 Wreck Tech Parade was great!
