If I were still on campus, I'd sure as hell be out there Friday night. Any sort of organized effort to block out the green and yellow hoard? We really cannot afford to have them take over the front row of the set.
    I have watched KSFY coverage for 1 1/2 hours this morning and the bison have not been around the camera. I did see #1 Jack Fan.

    The Pit is also a controlled area for admission. It would seem likely that area could be Jackrabbit preference. It may be likely that the bison could get close to the area behind the Pit. Any people or students that wish to get premium locations should be serious on effort. Effort may create a better result than whining. If there are some on the board that intend to be there, get there early like you wanted tickets for a rock concert or in earlier days when I was buying the next year's Summit League Tournament tickets before Ticketmaster.

    Should we expect them to cheer rabidly for us as well?

    To be honest, I expected and have been telling people this was probably going to be the case from the second ESPN announced they were coming.

    That fanbase travels insane for a "regular" game, let alone a game with this much activity. And I agree with Cappin...mad respect to them if they do...we have every opportunity to fill the place that they do, so if there's more green and yellow than blue behind gameday, that's our fault.

    If they are saying they will be there at 5. that probably means they will get there an hour or two before that.

    I know a lot of people that attended Game Day at Iowa State a month ago. From what I was told by them, and granted that was nearly 60,000 people at the game, so a larger overall general audience in the vicinity, but if you weren't in line for Game Day by 4:00 or 5:00am, good luck getting anywhere near the stage or pit. ISU I believe opened up their tailgating lots to RV's the night before, and everyone else that morning. Ames had standstill traffic at 5am from tailgaters and game day.

    I would assume there are enough general college football fans at SDSU that have grown up watching Game Day every Saturday morning and realize this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them, that they will wait in line all night to be able to watch Game Day up close and make it a college experience for themselves.

    Yup, I'm afraid that people on campus/around town don't get it that they need to be there WAY early. All the promos and releases keep talking about "See you at 8". The university needs to officially start telling people to get there earlier. It says you can line up bu 5:30 AM, but it doesn't say you should be planning on lining up by that time.

    I'm just going that between all thr student groups, Greek life, the band, etc, that there are a few hundred students ready to be out there tonight and early into the morning to fill the front rows with blue.

    Its simple, just don't let the NDSU bus stop close to campus. make them walk across town and most of them wouldn't probably make it that far. or wouldn't get there till 9. or just have UPd check for drunks or if they have wrist bands and that will annoy them enough to keep them out of the area.
