So I made a seating section switch for this year. After 5 years of being in Section 5, I moved my seats to Section 19. I figured both sections look straight at the South goal line, but at least in Section 19, I will be able to be on the Michigan sideline, have the cheerleaders in front of me, and be able to hear the band a lot better.
All of this turned out to be true, but I wasn't very happy with a few things in my new section that put a kink in my experience against Air Force:
1) People seemed more uptight in this area. They sat almost all the time except for big plays and big 3rd/4th downs with M on defense. There was one loud guy a few rows behind me that kept getting dirty looks. It just seems very quiet in the area also.
2) No easy out. Noticed there are 2 entrance/exits on the east side, but only 1 on the west side. It took me 15 minutes to get out to the concourse. In section 5, it never took me more than 1-2 minutes.
3) No easy bathrooms. Maybe I missed the easy bathroom, but I sure didn't see one. In section 5, there is both a men's and women's just outside and rarely have lines.
Also, I found out during the Nebraska game last year that I was sitting next to 1964 team captain Jim Conley when I was in section 5. Wish I would have figured that out much earlier in the season.
Anyway, the point of this long post is to get recommendations/advice from other board members on their observations in this section or other sections. Obviously this could have just been one odd game, but I want to figure out if I want to make another section switch. Thanks in advance!
