That Joe is a swell guy. He knew that people were having problems getting into the stadium, so they set up the "lightning" excuse to allow time for everyone to enter the game before kickoff.

This year LSU started offering an option for tickets to be scanned in from their iPhone instead of a paper ticket. As a result, LSU had to buy a whole new fleet of scanners to make this work. Normally, there are 16-20 scanners for the student gates. Only about half of them got delivered in time, so we only had 8 scanners working for the game.


Ready!
Fire!
Aim!

what was the issue? I assume it was related to the new gates and stuff that was part of the north side renovations



They had state trooper holding back the crowd and letting liek 50 people to gates at a time. So instead of the line slowley moving forward, it was a stand still.

They tried to change the old multiple lines format to this single zig zag setup and it was a complete disaster. I was lucky enough to be toward the front before it got out of hand, but my friend told me later that eventually people started pushing barricades over thinking they wouldn't get into the game before kickoff and they had waited for over an hour and a half. They finally quit scanning LSU IDs so that everyone could get in. Thank God they're changing it.

"Oh it's not broken, let's fix it!" - the admins with this genius idea.

I only opened this thread because I 100% thought Alleva was apologizing to the student body for ruining college football for this generation by scheduling all the fricking neutral site games.

I guess that will be in another letter.

The student government has been put in charge to fix this?

Why is he just apologizing to the students. It was a damn shite show for anyone going in Gate 1 or 2


Or any East side gate coming from south of the stadium.

Piss poor.

No such thing

Sounds like our experience trying to get in Gate G at JerryWorld. 50 minutes in line and we left the RV lot an hour and a half before kickoff.

It wasn't just the student section gates. I stood in the longest line ever to get into the East Upper Saturday. It was a complete cluster-frick once you got to the ticket-takers/bag checkers.
