LSU/Miami, 1988. Not good. It rained so much that Jimmy Johnson's hair almost moved.

Bring Back the Magic game was the first game I appreciated as a fan. It was amazing. I have some dim memories before that of being the only people in a section in the West Upper and my dad saying nobody'd notice if we renamed Curley's Corner as TigerattheU's corner.

Was a Tulane game in either the late 80's or early 90's. I remember sitting near a bunch of obnoxious Tulane fratsters. Of course we won and I was hooked. First big time game was the bring back the magic game.

re: Your first memory of Tiger Stadium?


Like others, my dad started taking me to games so early that my very first memories are hazy and blurry at best. The first thing I fell in love with as a kid was Mike the Tiger. The second thing was the band. This was around 1978/1979.

The thing that stuck out at me right off the bat, was LSU vs Tulane. That was a completely different animal back then. I remember asking my dad why people got so mad because we saw a few fist fights. It was like that. He told me to stay close and not to repeat anything I heard.

Overall, I remember the atmosphere being much more rowdy, loud, I remember hearing people randomly yell "Gooooooooooo Tiiiiiiiigggggeeeeerrrrs!" You don't hear that much anymore.

My first game was the Kevin Faulk show. He ran all over Houston! Just a few games later we shook up the world beating FLA 28-21 in my favorite game of all time, I am from Green Bay and put lt right next to the Ice Bowl!

'79 USC game. My dad scored some tickets last minute and we headed up to the game. Despite the loss, the atmosphere was electric and I had a great memory of time spent with my dad.

We had just moved back to BR and I was 11. First game ever was 1958 against Hardin Simmons. The beginning of our undefeated National Championship season. I was hooked and somewhat spoiled with that season.

Oct 3, 1981. Florida 24 LSU 10. Neither parents went to college and father not a sports fan. Friends brother in law had tickets and went with them. Frosh or soph year in HS. Wilbur Marshall (think it was him at the time) had great game. Hooked ever since!!!

1971...LSU dominated Notre Dame 28-8 in a revenge game after losing 3-0 in cold S. Bend the prior year. Tiger Stadium was electric that night. Tommy Casanova had a couple of huge interceptions in the end zone. Family had just moved to BR from CA the year before. I became LA boy that night.

I think my first memory of Tiger Stadium was when the Olympic Trials were held there. My sister was somehow involved in the opening ceremony and I remember attending that and watching them light the torch above the old scoreboard with a green laser.

My first LSU moment in Tiger Stadium was attending LSU vs. RIce around 1985 or so with my dad. We sat in the North endzone and demolished the Owls by around 30 or so.

My dad worked for Coca-Cola. At the games, he ran a concession stand. We sold cokes in the glass bottles (no fountains). Yeah, you actually carried a glass bottle-projectile back to your seat. My hands were numb from reaching into the tubs of ice to pull out the bottles .. 1965?

re: Your first memory of Tiger Stadium?


My first memory of TS was LSU defeating Wake Forest 13-11 in 1978. It was the senior season of Charles Alexander. I still have the pennant my folks bought me displayed on my office wall.
