A month or two ago, I got an email survey on what I would be willing to pay extra in the new stadium, if it was expanded. It took about 10 minutes, lots of questions. Obviously, the AD Dept is doing due diligence and a feasibility study for the expansion. Has anyone heard about the feedback or any plans behind the scenes ? Seems like it has been very quiet on that subject. I have to think with all the ticket demands and pent up ticket demand out there, with a great home schedule, this is an opportune time to try and fund it and get early commitments from buyers for expansion. It seems that the Ticket Office is even running out of the upper deck seats and I would bet we have sold more season tickets this year than ever.I have to think that we need about 12-15K, at least. That would put us about 70K.

On field boxes and just lots of questions that weren't catering to the normal fan and I still don't see how they think any of the question about raising ticket prices to support any new expansion would get many yes votes. I'm not for paying more for an expansion. It should pay for itself IMO.

The suites and club seats themselves usually pay for an entire expansion by them selves. The regular seats that are also built is all profit on top of it.So, when they expand in the endzone they are getting a feel for the high end seats that will fund the thingffire522 wrote: That survey didn't look like they were after the normal fan.

Next years home schedule only has Clemson from a marquee name standpoint.GL Slick Seating or StageRight temporary systems can add up to 6,000 temporary chair back seats (I know we're snobby about that) in the north endzone at what I would consider to be a fraction of the cost of a future concrete and steel expansion. This would allow for the middle red carpet area to remain open for the intros, and preserve the corner entries next to the Schenllenberger complex. Found some pics of the temporary seating systems, and frankly some of them look better than our current seats. Move the students and the band into these seats in the north endzone, and then you've got section 209 and 210 for new season ticket sales.
