The big fricking deal is that we could be dumping that money into affordable healthcare!

Can't read or something?

The band’s annual Tigerama concert serves as a fund raiser whose proceeds benefit the band program.

We're doing a TON of extra stuff to pay for it. Playing at the Saints season opener, doing two Tigeramas in the same day, and plenty of other things, I'm sure.

We're no freeloaders.

You think it's going to come out of LSU's academic budget?

Perhaps you should am the at yourself.

My bad, I had no idea Tigerama generated MILLIONS of dollars to pay for this trip.

Based on my sons fee bill that I seen yesterday I would have guessed me.

Maybe the band will just stand on the corner and beg for money?

i don't think tigerama will raise enough, but there's probably some other deep pockets that will help finance the trip....

And who will make up the difference in the cost of the trip vs. the proceeds of Tigerama?

Our stipends are going towards that too, so that's $325,000 right there (from the Athletic Department, which is pretty well-off as it is and is separate financially from the school).

If the fundraisers aren't enough, we (the members) do.

That is not separate from the school. That is cash the school has and will pay for a trip to Ireland.

This is the same day the new Prez is bitching in the news about teacher salaries.
