    Our home schedule for 2011 is plain awful. You would think we were ULL with the home schedule we have. We have ONE home game during the month of September, and 6 home games for the year.

    We should definitely move the WVU game to another year... What is the athletic department doing with this schedule? Do they want less home games in order to do stadium upgrades? Maybe to wrap the upper deck? I am confused as hell.

    That has nothing to do with the 2011 year?

    There's usually 7 a year. The first game went to neutral site. There was an AD's statement back in the day on this subject.

    Half of our games are @ home, we're just spoiled from renting teams to have more. Get used to it, we've beefed up our schedule and personally I love it.

    Yep, the trade-off for upgrading the competition is having to hit the road more. Bummer for the season ticket holders, but if the ultimate goal is to compete for the NC every year, its a necessity.

    I like having UNC, WVU, Oregon, etc. on our schedule and don't mind losing a home game.

    I also understand that money talks which will lead us to play more day games to accommodate CBS. I wish they had a limit though and also wish they were forced to provide more advance time of the changes.

    I don't like playing two in-state teams in the same season. Keep it to one and I'm happy.

    I will continue to support LSU football and plan to be there every game until I'm six feet under or too weak to attend. The only thing that could mess it up is if we start playing every game during the day. I absolutely HATE day games at Tiger Stadium!!!

    Thank GOD the Cotton Bowl isn't at 10 a.m. this year!

    Shew, not me. If we don't win another NC soon I'm bailing.
