Will be there screaming at the top of my lungs. Next to student section and band. Gotta say the band is awesome. They are into it the entire game. Students, not so much. Hopefully they will bring it tomorrow.
If you go to the game regularly, you will know that the student section isn't the problem at all. The problems are: 1) the location of the student section, and 2) the aging/affluent population that largely occupies the best/courtside seats.

I have come to understand that absolutely nothing can be done to move the student section to the sides, but I'd love to see them get space under both goals.

I also realize that most of us mellow with age, and the grandfathered aristocracy just isn't going to skin up, paint their hair, primal scream, and wave around a huge mug of Steve Urkel.

THAT BEING SAID: everyone else grab your 300-level seats on the cheap or try to score some lowers from StubHub or somebody on the street, and get rowdy! It's a closed building, and you will be heard.

Comparatively speaking, our students tend to be a bit sedate. Examples that come to mind are our students vs. Duke, Miss. State, and Auburn students.

Yeah, this right here was where I was sitting for the Tuesday night Arkansas game. And there were more students behind me all the way up to the ceiling
That really sucks. I am an old man (lol) that used to camp out for tickets to watch Tennessee play in Stokley back in the day. We always had good seats and they put the students on the side of the arena back in those days. No matter where you sit, you can still be loud. Fortunately I have seats in the 100 level and probably scream as much as any of the students.

Be loud and proud in those 100 seats today and get after everyone around you to join in!

Yeah I’ve camped in front of TBA a few times. I’m sure for Kentucky this year I’ll be lucky to get any ticket at all

I went to the ESPN NCAAM's basketball page just to note the coverage. You would never know Tennessee played a game yesterday. No story, no score listed even at the top bar where they usually show the top 10 scores. Duke has 5 different videos above the fold. I know they beat Virginia but its like all about Duke porn over there.
