See, I don't think this is an adequate solution. Most of the people that frequent Tigerland bars don't even live around that area. From what I've read, it seems like the housing (and a lot of the people who occupy that housing) in Tigerland is the problem. I say if we can figure out a way to get rid of that housing, there will be no need to do away with Tigerland. No housing in the area means no shady characters in that area, because the majority of people getting shot are not usually the bar-goers








No it is not a solution to the problem but it is the only thing a college student has the power to do....

No one else seems to care enough to keep up the areas that college students frequent so the college students need to be smart and frequent somewhere that is safe.

The thread title is

The bolded part is the what I have been responding to this whole time and that is really the only thing the students have the power to do

But all that would do is put those bars out of business, and the bars are not the problem! The shootings would still occur in Tigerland, which according to you is tied, in the public eye, to LSU. So you wouldn't eradicate the problem, only put the bars out of business.

Also, students are not going to just decide as a whole to not go to bars if they don't feel threatened by this violence. I am on your side-I think there is definitely a problem that needs to be dealt with-I just don't think your solution is realistic or necessarily even the most efficient

The only reason it is tied to the university is because it is known for being the popular student hangout. You take away the students and you take away the ties.

Now like I've said this isn't my preferred action, I would much prefer to see the city clean that area along with all the other terrible areas bordering campus.

But if the people in charge aren't capable of doing that or willing to do that then the students need to create a new scene....

Now will that happen? Not until something drastic shocking and terrible happens unfortunately. Which is going to happen sooner or later imo. Its only a matter of time.

and those bars in danger of being put out of business need to join together and actually make a stand and at least attempt to change what is going on in their back yard.

Oh, and sorry for those who have purple and gold blinders on. This is bad and has no signs of improving. Which is amazing considering LSU is supposed to be the pride of Baton Rouge.


I've said all along LSU should never have moved from Pineville and been lambasted for it. Maybe not so farfetched any more.

Tom, nice strategic and selective edit of 'eye for profits' and 'when possible', as to totally misconstrue it's intent.

And hold your breath on practically anyone but an LSU grad, if ever at all, showing any interest in it's redevelopment..it's only been forty years now.

I'm not a redneck. And not for intimidation by anyone nor entity in any form.

Your rationalization, deduction, and comprehension skills, all need work.

I hate to hear that Tigerland has gotten so bad.

When I arrived at LSU in 1988, we lived in the first building at Tiger Plaza with our balcony and deck overlooking Fred's and S.I. with Tigerburger right outside our door. To my 18 year old eyes and hormones it was a place better than Disneyland. We could go out with $15.00 and have a great time, walk to and from the bars and usually have an afterparty at the apt after the bars closed. Tigerburger had the best hamburgers ever created (Brewbachers was out of our price range), Todd and Zook always had our back at The Tiger and Curley Hallman was ruining our Saturday nights.

I would love to go back and see the place, but it would probably just depress me and put a dark cloud on the memory of the best years of my life.

When I lived in my shitty no name complex down the street, I would sneak into the Tiger Plaza poolhouse and work out on the Universal gym

I think Tigerland is in a weird place too. It's like they put a neighborhood and bars in a damn cow pasture in the countryside and expect it to be normal. The entire south side of campus is like that. No uniqueness. No cool urban feeling. Going to tigerland only makes sense because everyone else goes, so of course it's gonna be fun. But if you look at it from the outside you realize how lame it is, especially after checking out other schools.

Tigerland is 5 bars with huge crappy parking lots that sucked when I was there 10 years ago. Robberies happened all the time.

The area needed a bulldozer back then. Not worth saving.

LSU has one of the worst bar scenes in the SEC, it's really fricking pathetic.
