Had to move to the west side of the stadium for this year, the east side will be closed for construction.

East side probably not needed this year. Interest in team seems to be low. So-so season last year, early spring practice with no spring game has had negative effect.  And with the first 2 home games being garbage games at 2PM don't expect a lot of people.

I would not read too much into things. This is a season following a non-post-season year, but that is very common. THe 2p start time on the opener does bother me, as it is a noon start in Columbus. However, we need to realize two things that never seem to come up ion our conversations:

1. Some pregame activities (especially any type of fly-over) cannot occur at night.
2. The start times are probably more for the opposition. This means they only need to stay over one night (which saves YSU money) and the opposing players will not have to make a long bus trip the same day prior to the game. Additionally, their drive home will still be in the daylight, which is also important.

I am ok with a 2 start, would prefer 1 for EVERY game. Allows me to do things before and after the game. I dislike 4 and really really really hate 7.

Visitors will be seated more to the freeway side of the stadium.

7pm night games are what the kids live for. Gets the biggest crowds, especially for a decent opponent. Fyi, I wish they would move the students back over to the west side. Band as well.

Did they give you a discount for having to move?

Correct.  This is probably the biggest factor.  I personally prefer the 6:00 start early in the season, and then 12:00 once the cooler weather settles in.

Gave us chair back seats, we can switch to other seats if we do not like them. Will hold our old seats on the eats side for us.
