LSU board won't vote on football, baseball ticket increases until December
Although the LSU Board of Supervisors will hear on Friday a presentation on proposed price increases for LSU football and baseball tickets, the board will not vote on the matter until its December meeting. "Rather than try to act on it right after the presentation is made [on Friday], what we want to do is give the board a good overview of the proposal and then give them some time to understand it, reflect on it and see how they feel about it," says Blake Chatelain, a board member and chair of its Athletic Committee. "We're really just kind of deferring it." The LSU Athletic Department is asking the board to OK implementing a flexible pricing plan for home football games next season, as well as approve an increase to the so-called Tradition Fund for some football season ticket holders. Also, the athletic department is looking to raise the Tradition Fund donation for tickets and parking for the 2015 baseball season. LSU Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva has said the increases are necessary "for us to stay competitive at the highest level of collegiate athletics, but also because of the rising costs of doing business on a daily basis." —Steve Sanoski
