07:24 PM ET 02.11 | Have you ever wanted to go to the Super Bowl and not pay a dime to do so? Well two students from Savannah State came up with a master plan to sneak into the Superdome in New Orleans and attend Super Bowl XLVII absolutely free -- and they filmed the whole thing. This story really has two or three sides to it. The first and most obvious is that if two college students can sneak into the Super Bowl, which is one of the most heavily guarded events in America, what does that say about the security efforts that are really being put forth to keep everyone attending safe? Terrorism is a dangerous buzz word, but in case you didn't know, most terrorists aren't idiots and if college kids from Savannah State can do it, who's to say someone with deadly intents can't? But while that's the dark and not-so-fun angle, the story of two kids sneaking into the Super Bowl is pretty incredible. USA Today chronicled their adventure, which really seemed so easy it almost had to have been staged.

" ... walked past more than a dozen police officers ... acting like they were wheeling in video equipment ..."

Folks wheeling away someone else's video equipment just looks normal to the New Orleans police.

I seem to remember a reality show from a few years ago that was about this very thing.

"which really seemed so easy it almost had to have been staged."

People can sneak into the White House, so I guess they can sneak into the SB too.

Who said roger goodell is a smart man? Who said the NFL is a "security expert"?? The idiots and morons they hire to work these events aren't exactly the best and the brightest available-- and coming from Greedy Roger-- who ever said he was concerned with fan security?? When?

Hey Commish, if you didn't charge up to $1,500 face value PER TICKET for events people wouldn't sneak it. Ok they would... but you're still a big **** and I hope you're gone soon.

I wonder who loses their job because of this video?? My guess is the police officer that let them past that checkpoint for starters LOL!!!

Those two students might end up arrested. Sneaking into a game is a crime, I think

February 12, 2013  12:14 PM ET

Quite a maze they went through

February 12, 2013  12:35 PM ET

Awesome... where there's a will; there's a way!!

they should be recognized for showing how weak the security is....if they care, that is.

These might be the coolest kids in the history of coolness

Hell, they couldnt keep the lights on in there. Those kids couldve snuk in thru the private entrances where the players & coaches go in.
