I just found out this morning that my student season tickets this year will put me in North Endzone. Now I know that most fans would go crazy for seats there, but I found myself wishing I'd been placed in East again. The last two years, my tickets were high in East on the 45 yard line. I found that ideal for actually watching the game because it gave the best perspective while not sacrificing the energy of the crowd.
My question for you guys: Where do you prefer to sit (North, East, South, West, high, low, etc.), and why?
I've sat with my grandparents on the 50 yard line in West, about 8 rows from the field before and, while that was amazing to be so close to the action, I felt so removed from the energy (even though people were plenty excited as we crushed Miami in 2009). With little to no other students, everyone in that section just sat down the entire time except for a second or two during a big play. I've also been in the box seats above West and it was neat (and warm, late in November) but I still think that my ideal seats would be in the middle of the student section in East, as close to the 50 yard line as possible. Even if that means being in the upper gates.
