I was going to put this in the "Vent" thread, but thought it deserved it's own forum topic.
Anyway, I know we're all disappointed with the on-field performance of the team last night, but here's another thing that I was hoping we'd never have to vent about: the Lane Stadium experience.
Don't get me wrong, it's impressive that we can get 60,000+ to show up for a bad team, but boy the stadium experience is just not what it was.
I know it's not everyone, but the students are acting like absolute clowns. Throwing bottles into crowds with families and small children. Pushing and shoving fans around. Elbowing people in the face. Screaming obscenities at fans that are just trying to enjoy the game. Etc. etc. etc. And I'm sure other people on here can vouch for this happening.
It's getting to the point where I would barely feel comfortable taking my wife and small children to the game, which is really, REALLY pathetic.
On top of that, we've got fans (likely students) leaving at halftime of a tight game against a bitter rival?? When did that become a thing??
I don't know exactly how it got to this point, but I'm sure there has got to be a way to turn this around again. I realize I'm not offering much in the way of help/suggestions, but just wanted to vent a little bit and see if y'all had any similar experiences.
