A new seat in Tiger Stadium called the "Chair of Honor", which will honor prisoners of war and soldiers who are missing in action was unveiled on Thursday.

The seat is located on the ground level in the north endzone near where the LSU football team takes the field. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

The “Chair of Honor” will remain empty and will be guarded on each side during home football games by members of the LSU Corps of Cadets.

“We are extremely honored to be part of this program,” LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said. “LSU has such a rich military tradition and to be able to pay tribute to those who served our country in Tiger Stadium with the “Chair of Honor” is something we are proud of.”

The “Chair of Honor” in Tiger Stadium is the first of its kind to be installed in an LSU athletic facility, but there will be similar seats put in place in the Maravich Assembly Center, Alex Box Stadium and Tiger Park in the coming months.

They should have designated a black seat right on the 50 yard line, in the stands. That would have been a way more powerful statement, imo.

No Can do. That would take away from ticket sales.

right. which is why I'm saying it would be a more meaningful gesture.

not really. It wouldnt be in full view, some drunk or non suspecting person would sit in it, 2 fat people siting on either side of it would cover it from view. This puts it out in the open and easy to see.
