Those who are trying to downplay the significance of this announcement, and those who harbor hatred and prejudice against gay people, this thread is not for you.

I'd like to see some March Madness games in the Supedome, regardless of who's playing. But I'm wondering if I should wait for prices to drop, or if now is the best time to grab tickets.
Right now, tickets are starting at $190 for the two semifinal games, $147 for just the championship game, and $...

...if we win this year?
Only a handful of players who transferred, or left early for the draft, like Patrick Peterson, never won a NC.
But basically, any LSU player since 2003 has had an opportunity to be on a NC team. And in a 10-year span, more than 90% of our players will have won a NC....
| More Sports Board|| Rondo Playing with One Arm - tigersandjets on 5/8/11 at 11:18 pm|
Most incredible in-game comeback of all time? I'd say it ranks as one of the most insane athletic feats in sports history. The fact that it was even allowed to happen was insane in itself. Rondo's one-handed steal and layup almost brought me to tears. In an already electrifying first two rounds, the...

In my opinion the Top 10 best OC candidates for LSU:

Unlikely we get him, since he should probably be interviewing for head coaching jobs.
[b]2. Dana Holgorsen, OC Oklahoma St. [/b]
Should be our top candidate. Has had incredible success everywhere he goes....
