    During Christmas Time, you can be the Red Zone

      Cook Head



      Just in case you missed it, Nebraska has a couple of Christmas time games vs Jacksonville St on 12/18/12 (Tuesday) and 12/29/12 on (Saturday) where students aren't around and they count on you to fill the student section.

      Thus, relive your glory, embarrass your significant others, and hang down with the upperclassmen who have their own places as for a couple of nights this year the players will actually be able to hear you cheer them on to victory.

    Hmmm bein' down in the red zone, huh? I wanna yell at the refs. Maybe get kicked out. Have a police escort. How cool would that be? (Just ask Jadler.) Then go out and get a tattoo on my butt and go over to one of the watering holes and tell all the college girls I'm a senior majoring in pre-med. That would just be AWESOME!

    I understand this is a necessary evil...yet it is still depressing that even over the break, we cannot find students to fill the red zone. Here is an idea, offer Lincoln Public and Private school students $1 tickets for those games. I think the HS students would bring a bit of excitement to the floor rather than parents, grandparents and others. Just a thought.

    Yeah, you could label them "the future red zone." HS kids are already loud and a little nuts, so they'd fill in pretty well for the real thing.

    The "Unattended High School Zone" seems good in theory....

    Like silverbacked stated, it makes way too much sense. Have you seen some of those high school games? I feel like they can be rowdier than the Red Zone at times. Plus, that would be a good recruitment too for future UNL students to get excited about Husker Hoops.

    Norm I will buy your first beer if you do this as I may be in the homeland that night. Let's give it a go.

    Will the Red Zone also be somewhat filled with little kids in the Jr. Red Zone, or have they ended that program?

    Regardless of what the case is, the spot on the band side just behind the basket better be open. I don't want to have to use force to return to my spot!

    Is the vantage point behind the basket terrible? I have only sat on the sides before.

    It's probably about the worst spot in the section because at points your view will be obstructed

    It may be the worst spot view-wise in the section, but it is MY spot nonetheless!

    How hard is it to get down there if I don't buy a Red Zone ticket?

    I would be very willing to come down from the mountain and have some fun, just don't want to buy another couple of tickets.

    (well actually my wife doesn't want me to buy some thing I already have. ;))

    For these games you won't even have to wait. If you come down and start talking with me and the other guys and start tearing up paper the vests won't think any of it.

    Source: We get quite a few friends from other colleges in every year.

    Edit: The whole "act like you belong" phrase applies to this quite well.
