    In the past I used to like sitting within 20 rows of the field because I was closer to the action. Ended up paying top dollar for seats.

    Recently I went to the Utah game and was given free tickets to sit in Row 53 on the 50 yard line.

    Normally, I would have passed on the tickets. After watching the game, I soon realized I like being higher up to be able to see the whole play develop. Just wondering what other people's preferences are.

    I have sat everywhere....I love it all...EXCEPT the sunshine seats.
    Ive been 5 rows up and 50 rows up. Endzones, corners, sidelines.

    Id say I'm with you. I like the corners...and... up a bit. You can see the width of the play that way as well.

    To me, the worst seats in the house are first row endzone, right between the hashes. Can't see anything develop. Pretty much sat every where else, my favorite seat depends on the circumstance. Noon in Aug/Sep? I'll take a seat under the overhangs in the endzone, particularly in the corners. Night SEC game? Hard to beat the student section, or as close as you can get. The expensive seats on the 50, low, west side can get kinda boring with all the "proper" peeps around...

    ^^^^ 7 rows up, here. Goal line....Love them. Only bad part is you can't see what's going on at the other end of the field. Still love them!

    Sky boxes/suites. Once you can get an opportunity in one--you NEVER want to go back out into the heat, cramped space, rain, cold(when applicable)--not to mention the catered food and drinks.

    Only done it a few times but trust me--those ARE the best seats. Ain't even close.

    Box seats from my company are great -
    If I pay for some seats to see a game -I usually get 1st or 2nd row in the 20 to 30 yard sections.
    Hard for me to see my Gators play at times so I'm willing to throw some cash out to get close.

    TD Terrace is best of all in Swamp! Really anywhere else is just about the same with good and bad....west side EVERYBoDY goes and wont budge a friggin inch since they have had "their" seats since .....well forever...they own em! Depends on what u like, sunshine seats can be good on a cool night, u see a lot....just not the top of north end zone....where u r in the row prolly matters more for comfort....and hopefully u are not cornered in by a bunch of blue chair backs....that get uncomfy!

    Been there done that with the a Rays game it was nice but being out with the other Fans is better. Can't really scream and hop up and down when your in the club section.

    I was lucky enough to sit in one last year. (Thanks to one of the posters on here) He gave my father and I two tix to his own box. (A gift I'll never forget) Unbelievable.... Just a great experience.

    That being said, I prefer to be down in the trenches with the fans. I like to get loud and rowdy with everyone. I like to feel like I'm helping out our defense.

    I agree. I sat in the skyboxes once. They don't call it skyboxes for nothing. You are so high that you need to watch the game on the TVs. For that, I might as well stay home. I rather be in the stands where I feel I can influence the game.

    I've sat just about everywhere but I'd have to say my favorite would be anywhere as long as I'm at least 50 rows up. The endzone would be my last choice but I'd take it.

    Very true. I've been in the boxes plenty of times, but I prefer the club seats to actually be in the stadium. Sitting behind glass and hearing the swamp roar through a window just isn't the same. It is fun up there, but more social than football.

    Section 329 in the corner of the north endzone. I can see every corner of the field and see plays develop. Hot in Aug/Sept. but where is it NOT hot in Aug/Sept.?
