I sat in the opposite end zone and my group watched the student section all game. It never came close to getting filled.
Also, as a side note, I wish to personally flay the idiot responsible for pom-pom day. The behemoth in front of me (hope he paid for 2 or 3 tickets!) could not rise out of his seat. But, he certainly could fling his pom-poms backwards with enviable vigor. The six-year old next to me got the bright idea to tie two together to create a pom-pom baton that he twirled for 3 joy-filled hours. By the end of the second quarter, I was praying for "Glock at the half"
