Who cares? Announcers mess up stuff on air all the time. Sometimes they catch it, sometimes they don't. If they don't while on set, they usually never come around to correct themselves. Sounds like they were talking about one stadium but then were staring at numbers for another. It won't be the last time something like that happens.
I actually haven't heard anyone say anything about the cost yet. If I hear anybody do that, I'll be more than glad to let them know it was reported in error.

To be honest, I did notice the error.. but one time. Actually, I thought it made LSU sound impressive but I do see your point that it'd be a ridiculous sum.

I do hope you stick around and post, fbbertusa!

And what was wrong with the old stadium anyway. We could've saved $36 million if we were really smart.

I understand that there are a lot of people here in BR whose very lives depend on how well the Tigers are doing but...

The stadium itself was fine (and we all have fond memories of "The Box"), but there was no room for expansion - I'd love to know who thought it was a great idea to squeeze a stadium betwen railroad tracks and married student housing.

Thanks I would like to hang around!!!It does make us sound impressive unless You have a child going there and had do endure the increase in Tuition.IMO the only thing wrong with the old Alex Box Stadium was that it was not able to keep up with the increase in the student Population and request for tickets to LSU games .I have lived just north of LSU for 60 yrs,I have seen LSU Completely drain a lake and build a dorm in it's place,The past Yr. or so that dorm was bulldozed down and a much bigger dorm and a massive parking lot put there.At one time I was 4 blocks from Campus today in one direction it is just 2 blocks& 3 blocks in the other direction.

I honestly wish they could have renovated the old Box. Replacing Alex Box is almost like replacing Wrigley (to me at least). But I do like the new stadium. I just wish I knew what a-hole decided to announce to the world that it was required for every old stadium to be replaced with a newer more state of the art stadium, or simply a new stadium with luxury suites (to add revenue). It's not like every stadium really needed to be replaced, did it? (i.e. Rosenblatt, really who decided to replace that one?)

I Also wish they could have kept the Old Alex Box We could just walk over and stand outside and get all the out the park home run balls.I do not really care for the new Stadium to Me it looks unfinished with all that steel showing.IMO the structure is not Architecturally appealing at all.But the school is growing and the demand for tickets was also going up along with tuition,so what can You do.

One thing LSU has in its favor: plenty of room to expand.
