Add 30,000 seats? That is pure insanity...

...zero chance you would fill that. The "capacity" of your stadium is not your primary problem. Having 20k empty seats on a weekly basis would look like sh*t. Just keep packing in the seats you currently have.
Alden is doing exactly the right thing: focusing on increasing gameday revenue because now you are playing in the big leagues. You guys are getting killed in gameday revenue with respect to your SEC brethren. Focusing on luxury boxes and high roller amenities is a high priority for you.
Also, you need to spend however much money it takes to lower the field so you can build seats down closer to the field and get rid of that freakin' track!
