If you’ll recall, Joe Alleva seemed mighty pleased at how inhospitable the last expansion of Tiger Stadium would make the place for visiting fans.
It looks like his master plan is working. A month before the start of the 2o14 season, six of seven visiting teams – Sam Houston State, Louisiana-Monroe, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Kentucky and Ole Miss – all returned tickets to LSU.
He’s a regular marketing genius, alright. The sad thing is that he’s one of the people whose job it is to figure out how to keep attracting fans to attend games.
