USC students were buzzing Wednesday night after receiving emails from the ticket office that said, “Student Section seats are now limited to 3,000 undergraduates.”
Even USC’s student senate was caught off guard by the announcement. Remember that the student section was 12,000 back in 2005 and reduced to 8,000 in 2006 because the athletic dept. wanted to sell those seats. That led to injuries when more than 9,000 students tried to get into the Nebraska game in 2006 amid poor game management.
Eventually, the student section was increased. But there was a dramatic meeting between students and USC administrators after the Nebraska game. One student said, “I’m a $47,000-a-year donor.”
So, first comes news of the personal-seat licenses and now the second attack on student seats. Pay On!
