Has anyone here ever been to a game at Lane Stadium? I am so fascinated by it. I love it. It's weird. It looks super intimidating. It's got dem "jagged Indiana/Wake Forest front rows". (Elite stadium ref.) It seems like it'd be straight up and down. It's got a double deck in the end zone but not elsewhere? I like the VT color scheme. I bet Fall is amazing there. Guys I just wanna go to a big early season night game at Lane Stadium and hear Enter Sandman and sit in like the 87th row and hear a bunch of people gobbling like turkeys and look at foliage off in the distance at halftime. Is that so hard?

Rage, it’s a terrible idea. We get that. But what are your thoughts on Lane Stade???

didn't OU used to not have any seats in the corner wedges?  I feel like i remember as a kid observing the seating just going out in 4 directions but that it wasn't connected.

Lane sucks imo.

I hate the look of non-contiguous seats.  4 unconnected seat structures?  :Yuck:

The rough ridin' KSU AD wants to know why ppl aren't going to games.  If you would have spent some of the 300 mil on improvements for the majority of fans setting on metal benches with are asses squeezed together on 18" spacing.  Put some rough ridin' seats in like they did at arrowhead a few years back.  It would be nice that you would be concerned about the average fans and also solve the problem of to many seats.  I'm tried of seating next to fat fucks that take up two seats and there is nothing you can do about it.   
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Hasn’t Arrowhead always had seats everywhere?

Yes.

When they did the renovation, they did some sweet things with seats tied to the skyboxes. 

The reality is, put in seats at the Bill, you lose seating capacity.  Depends how attendance and sales go in the future if they were to ever consider this (if it will help boost waning sales, and they can charge a premium price, it might happen - but man, for young people with kids, it will make games even tougher to attend on the financial side.

They put the new more comfortable seats in when they did their stadium improvements/ remodel.  I'm not sure how long age that, since I'm old.

I haven't ran into this issue a whole lot in the various sections I've held season tickets in over the years, but when it does happen, yes, it's super aggravating. However, if they put seats in the stadium, then our capacity goes down.

If we need more seats in the future, just add another deck on top of the WSC, similar to what Nebraska did.  Problem solved.

If we need more seats, start building seat "bridges" from the wsc to the east side where you can look down at the action below you and maybe even mess with an enemy punt

what about a clear, glass "ceiling" built over BSFS, giving fans a unique "bird's eye" view of the action.  i know how some of our fans love watching plays develop, this would give them that opportunity
