Saw a tidbit on Texas A&M's growing pains that caught my eye that also shed some light on the shift of the student section into the corner and end zone at Sanford. It seems there is a mini-brouhaha in College Station about moving the Texas Aggie Band to another place at Kyle Field. As we will come to find out, you don't screw with anything aTm does, as it is a tradition. Screwing with those things will lead to stern words and such.
Seems like they'll fit in fine. Unlike South Carolina, the folks in Aggieland understand what tradition means.
For the longest time I thought it was some combination of capturing the prime seats for the donors and the increasingly casual attitude about arrival at kickoff we see from students that resulted in the student section at UGA being moved further into the corner. Now I see it is an SEC rule.
