No place is as loud as SJA when it gets rockin'  The PA Announcer is not needed, since you can't hear him anyway.  Love the atmosphere. 

On the other hand, in the days of Granville Waiters and Carlos Davis, you could hear the sneakers squeak.  Still, no better place.

The Law of Diminishing Returns is too often ignored in business models any more.  As a Marketing and Bus. Admin. major, it drives me nutty.  I thought OSU learned that with the basketball team.  I was a long time split season ticket holder, but the rising prices caused me to rethink the situation and bail out.  OSU took notice that the Schott fails to sell out and has adjusted their ticket pricing to offer more options.  The prices still haven't gone down, but they give fans more choices, so they are coming around.  I still am not going to games live, but only because of personal reasons, not cost, necessarily.  Football, on the other hand seems to follow the pattern of the lemonade stand owners who sell lemonade for 10 cents a glass and had 50 customers but couldn't make a profit.  Therefore, they raised the cost of a glass to $10 thinking, "We only have to sell one to make a profit".  In the end, they end up with no profit and inventory on hand. I fear OSU is going down the same path.
