    Default Anybody been to Hinkle?

    Going up Saturday for the Butler, ISU game. Never been up there and have a few questions:

    -What's the parking situation?

    -How are the seats? (Section 30) Are they butt busting hard? Reason being, the wife has arthritis in her back and hip and might need a cushion otherwise.

    Thanks!

    Bring the pad.

    Parking isn't much of an issue. Just park on the street somewhere around campus for free.

    That would be my advice too...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Thanks guys. Pulling for the Trees, but I won't be upset if the Bulldogs pull it off.

    Nope. We were up in section 30. Still great seats, by the way, but too high to see him flip the bird. He's a douche for doing it.

    Seats are terrible and very old, so splitting wood in some places. I in fact ripped a pair of pants at a Butler game. Other than that the arena is a very nice place with friendly people.

    By all means, bring a cushion, boat seat, anything, unless you are sitting in the lower level "back" seats.
