    Is $500K the "going rate for two days rental? Non-rental expenses would be for cleanup, security, etc.?

    It sounded like politics got involved in costs here, but I'm assuming the rates for the non-select schools is the same?

    Final question...what was the rate for two days five years ago?

    In July the select schools formed the LSA - The Louisiana Select Association. In future years they will sell their own sponsorships. I think it's pretty clear that they will eventually control enough of the pie to where the non-select schools will have to leave the Dome, as well. It just won't be affordable.
    So, how is the site determined? The highest remaining seed gets the choice? If it's a New Orleans area school Tulane's Yulman Stadium would be a good choice, with Tad Gormley also a possibility. What if it's Byrd, then Indy Stadium? (not that it's likely to be Byrd this go-around).

    Back in the day...the 1970's...the highest remaining seed hosted the championship game at their regular homefield. So, nothing new here.

    I know that very few of the schools below AAAA make money on a Dome trip

    Our last trip in 2017 vs Logansport we cashed a check for less than $10,000 (I want to say it was $9,730)

    I know that a school can rent JAS for less than $3,000 for a day
