The problem is we used to go to bowl games and play great teams or at least teams we never saw much of. Now with the SEC West being dominate 90% of the teams we could play in a bowl game are a let down competition wise and you see everyone play every game on TV nowdays.
Being #3 in the SEC west i...

1982, the year the CD was introduced.
The Berlin wall was still standing.
Microwave popcorn had yet to be invented.
The prime interest rate that year was 21.5%, about the same as a high interest/risk credit card today....

It's not the bowl itself. But for LSU after you go to the same bowl multiple times over a short period, plus going to the same stadium/town for the SEC championship and the season opener on a...
| SEC Rant|| re: ESPN Grinding with its bowl projections - NathanL on 11/25/13 at 12:28 am|
I would think the Chicken bowl people would purposely trade down to avoid getting LSU again. There's no excitement to go to that bowl in that city at all....

A lot of the problem fans have with Miles he brings on himself outside of the win/loss record. His goofiness is all well and good when things are going well but come off bad when things are not going well.
Not really related to the problems now but over his career he seems to like a close game a...

I think it will be a hard sell next year. It's the perfect storm. The past is not the future.
Next year will be an increase in tickets, coming off a let down season, with a really weak home schedule, and every game they play b...

What home game next year will you not be able to walk up and get "good" seats minutes before kickoff?
Alabama and who else? If LSU has a bad season prior to the Bama game you can likely get those as well, but I wouldn't bank on it.
One thing about the capacity going up is I don't think there's...

The irony is people complaining about season ticket holders not showing up and then bragging about picking up tickets for pennies on the dollar from season ticket holders because of low interest in the game.
I've mentioned it before but there's not an endless pool of people looking to buy season ...
