Loudest games in LSU history. (Posted on 1/12/13 at 11:26 pm)
In the 90s, ESPN and the late Adrian Karsten, always seemed to use a segment for LSU home games where they did decibel readings. Does anyone have a chart of these - particularly for the recent games of the past decade? I ask because I would be interested in seeing how expansion has made a difference. Thanks!

quote: I don't remember that segment but a lot of fans will say it was louder in the 80's. I do think there was a higher percentage of fans that yelled their arse off back then.
Back then students were adults who could legally consume adult beverages and everyone then consumed alot more of those adult beverages. You could smell the booze in the stands from the field when I was in Tiger Band. The noise was deafening for many a game.

Early 80's me and some friends sold peanuts in TS. We got to know a lot of the students and just went and got them sprites and cokes the whole game. Would make a few hundred a game and get to see most of it. FSU orange bowl game was loud!
I think back then tickets were more affordable then they are now which made it easier for some fans to attend.

I'm still but a young lad, and the only LSU game I've ever been to in TS was 2009 Arky.. was pretty fricking loud. If all these games you guys are talking about were really a lot louder, I can't even imagine it.
