its the quality of the games we are stuck with for the home schedule. There is absolutely no reason to even buy tickets in advance to half our home games, people cannot give them away. If wanting to play big games in Tiger Stadium makes us whiny counts then I am proud to admit I am a whiny count.
Who is willing to come play us in TS? And do you know if our admin is willing to return the favor? Many of you act like we can just invite these big schools and they will come running. No big name school WANTS to come play in TS. There is no benefit for them. Who have we convinced to come play us in the past decade? Washington, Arizona State (hurricane cancelled), Arizona, Virginia Tech. Any Big Ten teams? Big 12? You think VA Tech or their ACC brethren want to come back after the skull fricking they received on their last visit?
If neutral site games are the only way we can convince them to play us, then so be it. We'll kick their arse wherever they want to play. I can't believe some people would rather have an extra home game against a "nobody" than play someone meaningful and get a nice SOS boost from it.
It's not a choice between UW at Tiger Stadium and UW at Reliant. It's a choice between UW (or other) at Reliant VS Norfolk State at Tiger Stadium. Seems like it should be an easy decision.
And LSU does owe it to the season ticket holders who shell out thousands of dollars for HOME game season tickets. If Houston LSU fans want to see LSU play, then don't live in Houston!
First of all, I live in Houston...and I see all LSU home games just fine.
Second, you're not paying for tickets that aren't at home. If there are 6 home games, you pay for 6 home games. Same with 7. Same with 8. You get EXACTLY what you pay for.
ETA: Oklahoma and NC State? You're referring to games scheduled 5+ years in the future? You have no idea if those will even happen.
