They are going to build a new gymnastics facility on the north side of the PMAC. It sounds like it will be where current parking is, so hopefully the old tennis courts become a parking lot....

It's across Gourrier from Alex Box. As you head from Nicholson to the levee, Alex Box is on the right, and on the left you have the golf course, then the Louisiana House(home and landscape resource center), then a field where the tennis center will go, then the LSU Dairy. The spot where it is bein...

I don't have a lot of the details, but they haven't started yet. It is going to be across the street from Alex Box Stadium, and the LSU Dairy has already given up the land. Not sure when we'll see dirt being moved, but I would assume pretty soon. It will have indoor courts....

There is no reason why you couldn't have beer sales at select sports. The most logical choice at LSU would be baseball and softball. The sport that would benefit the most would be basketball. And by benefit, I mean raise the noise level, not revenue.
I think the fact that so many tailgate for ...

Bayou, clearly any fan from ULL can place whatever importance they want to any game on their schedule.

How do you figure? If your series is tied after Saturday, the Sunday game still only counts as one game. A win against #1 is better than a win against #21.

Nice read. 5'10" that throws 90 and dunks! I love his energy, and he's obviously more athletic than his size might indicate. Time will tell, but I think he will find ways to get more playing time.
Looking to next year - If Hale is "one and done", then Robertson has the 2nd base job. If Hale...

Marcus isn't having a very good year with the Kings, but the Nets are hoping he'll find his old form. They are looking for an offensive spark.

Well, then it's settled. The use of steroids and weightlifting have no impact on home runs. It's all just congress and the media. The point is, that the scratch golfer isn't giving up anything by gaining distance. We're not talking about baseball players that can't hit without steroids. I'm sur...
