Nobody comes close to generating the revenue in baseball that LSU does.
Alex Box has 27 suites that sell out every year with a donation requirement of $40,000 per year.
LSU has led the nation in attendance 18 years in a row and sold an average of 11,006 tickets in 43 home games last year.

Too bad the Booster Club at Country Day wouldn't pay more to his parents or he would still be in Louisiana.

Cam Robinson has the "potential" to be a dominant O-lineman down the road. But, anyone that has watched him play this year can attest that he flat out isn't ready to contribute as a true freshman. He needs a year in S&C, improve his nutrition, and most of all needs coaching on his techniques. If he ...
