The reseating policy is and was a red herring


There were many children and grandchildren sitting in lower level premium seats based on how much their parents and grandparents had contributed, while contributing very little themselves. Trying to fund a National Sports program, that had to change, and has been done similarly at every major school. The whining about their +/- $100 annual donation for lower lever 40-50 yard line seats wasn't going to cut it, is laughable. It should be embarrassing for those who bitched about it. If someone left over moving seats, they weren't much of a real fan of the program anyway. The real culprit for lack of people in the seats is televising every game and the lost decade after Welsh when Groh and London were hired instead of Clawson.
