| Tiger Rant|| re: When did baseball become second most popular sport at LSU? - NathanL on 5/23/13 at 12:27 pm|
Early to mid 90's. In 1990 you could show up to a game at Alex Box 5 minutes before first pitch and get a great seat (most was general admission at that time) for a few bucks and still park very close to the stadium. Show up at 7:00 for a 7:05 first pitch and sit on the first base side between home ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Does anyone out there have some really unique LSU sports memorabilia? - NathanL on 4/27/13 at 1:33 pm|
A game worn and signed pair of pants from Charles Alexander.
A purple and gold basketball signed by Dale Brown and most of the 1981 basektball team, I was in middle school and McDonalds sponsored some sort of fund raiser and you could go out and buy a basketball and have it signed by all of them ...

A&M, but what do they really have to "fade" from? One good year where they effectively finished 3rd in the western division....

I think The Advocate is in the process of being sold. I wonder what sort of impact that is going to have.

[quote]An actual lsu baseball fan who attended a game before 1989? I didnt think any of these people existed.[/quote]
Show up 2 minutes before first pitch and get a general admission ticket and sit just about anywhere. I bet some games had 150 people at them.
There were a few I saw hit for LSU...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Best LSU Home Run Moment You Ever Watched Live - NathanL on 3/24/13 at 12:30 am|
Saw Morris in person so that's obviously number 1.
I have to suck it up and admit the longest/most impressive home run I saw hit in the old box was Bo Jackson....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Do I need to buy a ticket for a child under 2 to get into baseball game at alex? - NathanL on 3/19/13 at 3:07 pm|
No but be prepared to answer the question "Did you put sunscreen on that kid?" at least 25 times per inning, some from the same people over and over.
When I had season ticks a friend would come once or twice a year and bring his kid for a few innings and people never stopped with it....

It's been a while but I thought the SEC/SEC Commisioner put an end to the blind ref deal.
| SEC Rant|| re: Could it ever get to the point where the 4 big conferences say "Frick the NCAA"? - NathanL on 3/8/13 at 8:48 am|
Possibly but I think there would be a lot of backlash in non athletic departments on some of the campuses for not belonging to the NCAA. Some of them already gripe and moan a lot about the athletic programs on campus and I imagine that would grow a little with leaving the NCAA....

In person. LSU losing to Miami(OH) 21-12 in 1986. Wound up with 9 wins that season.
A close second would be LSU losing to Florida in 1993 58-3. I remember Hallman saying in the post game interview on the ride home about how we did a good job of running the ball. I think we had less than 20 yards ...

| SEC Rant|| re: Why all the hate towards Mizzou? - NathanL on 2/11/13 at 10:00 am|
And my point was that A&M is a closer fit for the SEC than UT after having attended games at both of those schools before the expansion.
How many black people have been dragged to death behind a truck with a logging chain in MS since the last ones were in TX?

Read my edited post. I saw as many battle flags on trucks while living near College Station as I did just about anywhere else in the south.
Having lived there was one of the reasons I was not a huge fan of letting A&M into the conference. Everyone wanted TV exposure but living there I got more LS...

When you post things like the Confederate Battle Flag (why use this flag and not one of the other 5 flags the Confederacy used that don't incite claims of racism) you're damn right we don't fit in. We aren't Southern, we're Texan.
Look I understand Southern pride and such, but you basica...
