Got to have dinner with Skip in the Champions Club, sit behind him 6 rows behind home plate, and then hung out in the suite he was in for a couple innings. He is such a class act.

| Tiger Rant|| Question Related to LSU ULL Baseball Game - PurpleAndGold86 on 2/26/14 at 7:14 am|
Can someone explain to me why everyone is saying the score was 4-1? Looking at the box score it looks like ULL scored in the top of the sixth which is when the game was called off. The game should revert back to the last completed inning and should have been 3-1. Obviously, it doesn't matter, we los...

Paging Poodle for this question -
