Arkie-St seemed to commit a fair amount of False Starts on Saturday evening, and the majority occurred in on the north side of the 50 yard line. Obviously, I like to think that this is one area of the game that we as screaming fans can help our beloved team. While the stadium was fairly full, it definitely wasn't at max capacity. However, it still seemed louder than last year.
Now, I have thought for some time that the changes to the North EZ along with increased bleachers would greatly increase the decibels on the field. Obviously, that impact will not have its full effect until the upper deck is finished for the 2008 season.
My seats are dead center in the North EZ, so it is difficult for me to really judge if the loudness of the crowd is amplified by the stadium changes. I would imagine someone on the lower east or west side could get a better feel for it.
So I pose these (mostly subjective) questions to the BON community:
- What's your opinion? Is the stadium noise at a higher level post-construction of the modified North EZ?
- Was the noise level the main contributing factor to the ASU false starts?
- Why are we, the stadium crowd, so quiet during the opposing team's huddle? Wouldn't it be more disruptive to raise the noise level during their huddle, as opposed to waiting until they walk up ot the line of scrimmage?
- Confess: Did anyone do the new kickoff cheer?
I'll see hear you folks on Saturday.
