What's the backstory on that?
LSU wanted more money and Tulane fought it, so LSU pulled their involvement and Tulane and UNO couldn't draw enough to support it.
Say LSU, UNO and Tulane all got 33% f revenue after expenses and payouts; UNO was drawing 2,000, Tulane was drawing 3,000 and LSU was drawing 9,000. LSU wanted more money and didn't get it.
Thats kinda why I don't like this, or these other "neutral site" games out of Louisiana. Football is KINDA different with possible recruiting implication, but I would much rather we La and LSU get more of the financial impact from something like this rather another host school or Texas.
If you told me we could do a SEC vs Pac 10 challenge at Rangers ballpark, I'd actually be a bigger fan of that. The less dependant something like this on LSU fans when LSU or Louisiana doesn't get most of the benefits, I'm not too much of a fan of.
