Tuesday’s game against the number one ranked team in the country
will be another test of what we are made of. This may be the biggest
two game stretch this campus has ever seen, and so far the Izzone has
retained full control. The section won rave reviews by all observers,
even the enemy, in last Tuesday’s game against Michigan. TREY BURKE
in his post game interview said it was the toughest atmosphere he has
ever played in. JAY WILLIAMS, a Duke alum and former player, said that
Michigan State has the best home court advantage in college
basketball. These compliments don’t come easy, these wins don’t
come easy, and that is exactly how we like it.
We wanted to again thank you for your feedback from the Michigan
game. Based on that, we have been able to coordinate considerable
changes for tomorrow nights game to ensure your safety upon entry to
the Breslin. These changes have been coordinated with the MSUPD, MSU
Athletics, the Men’s Basketball Office, and Breslin Events staff.
Even though these additional precautions have been put in place, /IT
IS CRITICAL THAT EVERYONE IN LINE REMAIN CALM AND PATIENT WHILE
ENTERING THE BUILDING/. Remain in an orderly line until you enter the
building to scan. The section leaders at the gates can scan and
bracelet / ticket at a faster pace when they are not dealing with
people pushing the tables and tipping turn styles. Changes will occur
at both lower and upper bowl gates. Below are a few of the additional
1. A buffer area between the Breslin Center doors and the
beginning of the line will be created with barricades (Gate A –
Lower Bowl Priority Admission)
2. Barricades will be used to form the line beginning at the
Breslin Center and extending far enough to accommodate a crowd similar
to that of UM (Gate A – Lower Bowl Priority Admission)
3. There will be an MSUPD / Breslin staff presence throughout
the afternoon to ensure later arriving section members do not cut in
line and/or rush the gate upon doors open (both gates)
4. When gates open, MSUPD & Breslin staff will slowly and
steadily allow groups of students to enter the building to scan (Gate
A – Lower Bowl Priority Admission)
5. An additional ID scanner will be located at each gate – 4
scanners are the maximum that can be connected
6. Gates will NOT open early
WILDCARD INFORMATION - The wildcard drawing will take place promptly
at 5:15pm. Any student arriving past that time will not be issued a
raffle ticket. The line will remain as is and winning raffle numbers
will enter when their place in line gets to the gate. The line will
NOT be reset.
This game against Indiana is our final game as a full unit. There are
many seniors in the section who will go out with a win they will never
forget. In order to make this happen the section must prepare to /turn
up/ and bring noise BEYOND levels anyone has ever heard at a
basketball game before. In the end there is no secret: this game could
very well decide who wins the B1G and possibly who wins a no. 1 seed
in the NCAA tournament. We MUST create the same atmosphere tomorrow
night. There were several reports stating that during timeouts the
arena was so loud that UM players could not communicate in their
huddles. DAN DAKICH, whom called the game, said “there is no team
that could’ve beat MSU in that atmosphere.” Grantland.com writer
Shane Ryan whom had attended the OSU vs. UM game this year among other
major B1G games said, “The noise reached such DEAFENINGlevels –
the Izzone put the Ohio State kids to shame, if you want a comparison
– that it felt like the players in maize and blue might actually be
in physical danger.”
* We will be using #turnup on Twitter. Best tweets @ThisistheIZZONE
using #turnup will receive a retweet – social media participation
has been extraordinary and is part of what makes the Izzone the best
section in the land.
* Wear your Izzone shirt! This game is a white out
* Don't wear stupid Angry Birds hats
Can't say I like having MSUPD there
So which gate for lower bowl priority admission?

Great Job Izzone. You bunch of crazy fucking college kids!!!!!! That's whats up, and thats called enjoying the hell out of your college experience. I'm proud and jealous as hell. Now go get you some of that Indiana stuff! Make them your bitches.
To an extent, yes... I'm all for preventing people from cutting, but I can't help but feel they'll be dicks when it comes to getting inside the arena, making the process obnoxiously slow
Why? From reports, it sounds necessary. Not sure it's that big of a deal.

it was a nightmare last time
Wtf am I missing? ...."this game against Indiana is our last game as a full unit"..... Not our last home game. What's the reference to?
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
spring break is the week of the last 2 home games?
Duh... Probably right.... I had forgotten spring break is so early these days...
Ah, for the days where upperclassmen and those who had season tickets the year before (especially when it involved watching a season of Thomas Kelley at the point) got dibs, assigned seats, rolling in to your 5th row seats at your leisure. Those were the days.

Out of all the tl;dr that I just read, this was the one thing I was going to post. Nice work, +1.
I feel Izzo should send an email for this one just as well.

Prediction: MSUPD consider the line to be a riot, no izzone allowed to enter the game.
Tear gas time

I hear the MSUPD is calling out the cavalry units to quell the Decembrists...I mean, the students.
Tear gas on court!!!! Aghhhhhh
so mattyfresh and so clean
WTF? Best Tweet gets a RT? How cool is that? We didn't get prizes like that back in my day.
Don't think -- it can only hurt the ballclub
You guys asked for it and now you got it yet some of you are complaining that MSUPD will be there? I hope you're not the same people
Ditto. Fucking hell, these Gen Y/Millenials suck at life.
Well, I'll wait to hear what happens tomorrow, but at least for this game, sounds like SAF learned their lesson on corralling people for big games.
Again, only other policy I wish they'd add is that all lower bowl members that are there before gate open should be guaranteed to get lower bowl.
