My family and I went to all the games from the early 70's on. Struggled thru the really crappy years, tailgated like there was no tomorrow. Sometimes spending a $1,000 or more on a weekends worth of food to feed people including some of the visitors. We traveled to the away games like Washington, all the bowl games etc...
We stopped only recently because it became heartbreaking. Sure people will call me a negatiger but it's one thing to get your arse kicked by a better team and it's another to be on the wrong side of a bonehead call or series. Ever notice how often LSU is on the wrong side of those compared to the other teams we play?
It's like having an employee that gets all their work done by noon everyday and better than every other employee you have, but then once a month he does something that gets you sued. We were leaving too many games with the focus being entirely on the coach and the decisions the staff made rather than the "team" if that makes any sense.
Now we just mainly make the home baseball games (been going steady since about 1990) where it's much more relaxing.
Either way I'm sure the second we didn't pick up our tickets someone else was in line to take them.
My dad did have a talk with the associate AD at LSU when we decided we were no longer renewing our tickets (talk was specifically about us not renewing, just casual conversation) and he basically said "at least it's not like Hallma, and we could go back to the Charlie Mac days". That really chapped my dads ass.
