I felt bad for Matt after he bounced from Seattle to Oakland and then out, but he has to be the luckiest guy in the NFL. He makes some good money as a back up in GB (Ching!). He has a phenomenal game and punches his ticket and a fat pay day to head to Seattle (Cha-ching!). Russell Wilson beats him o...

Season ticket holder for years, I've been ponying up and rolling for longer than those kids have been alive, and I've always enjoyed the student section, even after I wasn't a student anymore. It's an important part of Tiger Stadium.
So, how exactly are the student tickets distributed now (includ...

Well, I for one was pumped that they played Neck. Long-standing tradition or not, it is a song that TGBFTL plays that pumps up the crowd and it WORKED. STTDB, to me, isn't enough to warrant banning a song that get's the crowd going and uses the band, not piped in music. As for Tiger Rag, that should...

TV, coupled with the cost to attend games, is the number one issue here, and not just at LSU.
I think LSU has an additional issue in that they tailgate better than anyone. Just a fact. I've seen many times where people got too drunk at the tailgate and said , "screw it, I'll watch it here, who wa...

As simple as this seems, it really has been one of the major deterrents to attending games. It hurts tailgating to a degree, but it mostly hurts fans who want to attend games but can't spend the en...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Flexible Pricing, Tradition Fund Increase Incoming? - ffishstik on 10/17/13 at 3:29 pm|
They should add in some places and take away in others. The asinine game day parking on campus (not reserved parking) needs to go away. Also, if you're asking me for more money (I have baseball and football season tickets), that's fine, but please use some of the extra money to offset taking down th...
| Tiger Rant|| re: TAF will be requesting to sell some of the student section... - ffishstik on 10/17/13 at 8:39 am|
Maybe they could use the SRO money to offset the cost of NOT charging for campus parking. Personally, that killed it for us. We still go to the games, but we don't tailgate nearly as much. We park out away from campus and ride our bikes in so that we can sail out through the traffic after the game.

No, it didn't. The rest around it filled in, but that particularly little section remained mostly empty.
We scan tickets now, so LSU knows how many are in the stadium. Any reason they couldn't sell SRO tickets? That would accomplish:
More $ for LSU

Maybe it's just because I'm on the West side, but from where I sit it looks like the main problem is with the East side of the stadium between the 30s, which would be the nouveau riche of Tiger Stadium: ticket holders who have the means to pay the high TAF w...
