    Two - there is no way to economically add temporary bleachers that meet fire marshal standards and give you the same amount revenue as the SRO/Leftfield GA tickets do

    It would probably cost $15k to $20k to bring in temporary bleachers for an additional 200-300 fans - how many games would those actually be sold? priced? (be hard pressed to sale them more than $10 a seat) and you would still have the costs associated with vending and toilet facilities...

    $10 SRO and Leftfield GA tickets are the way to go - same atmosphere and more revenue

    NO ONE was turned away this weekend who attempted to buy a ticket at the gate even though the event was sold out -

    That doesn't mean you can get a chair back, but it does mean you can get in the park

    For those out of town - work your local friends, find out who has tickets and may not be able to use them and offer to take them off of their hands (don't expect them for free, even though they may give them to you for nothing)

    Folks - this happens in every arena/park/stadium in the country to a ticket that's in demand, we have been spoiled way too long in that regards

    It happened here a few years ago with Dunkin Dawg basketball when folks complained ad nauseum because they couldn't get a lower arena seat (when there were 3,000 plus good blue seats available)

    Season tickets have it's benefits and Thank God my season tickets are finally worth something in a Tech sport even though they have increased 300% in price since 2019
    I agree, shame we have had to fork out so much more, but glad we can and have the option of sharing when we are out of town.

    there are scammers on a Louisiana Tech Parent site trying to cheat some folks out of some money for tickets. I'd say we're really progressing . . . . . onward and upward.

    Newsbot will probably add a thread later, but these guidelines have been posted.

    Re: @LATechBSB-LSU game sold out

    Forecast not as bad as a couple of days ago.

    Wednesday--A 40 percent chance of showers, mainly after noon. Cloudy, with a high near 54. Northeast wind around 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
    Wednesday Night--A 50 percent chance of showers. Cloudy, with a low around 41. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

    Northeast wind could help deep fly balls to center or right center by blowing them toward the short porch in front of the Kennel and scoreboard.

    I was thinking the same thing. Hope our lefties can focus on squaring up the ball and let the wind do the work.

    Re: @LATechBSB-LSU game sold out

    I have a feeling this could be a high scoring game. We can't afford to get behind earlier. I know they played Maine ( not near as good as Wichita State) last weekend, but they did score 51 runs. They can hit. I know the boys will be ready though.

    Wichita State got literally run over by Oklahoma 6-2 today. 11 stolen bases by the Sooners with three players getting 3 steals each.

    Temperature at game time in Norman was around 30.

    Is Martinez still the fastest arm on the team?

    Sure seemed like it. Jay was talking up his velocity a lot.

    Re: @LATechBSB-LSU game sold out

    The key to this one is our pitching. We have to make this into a defensive game plan to keep them from scoring in the teens.

    That wind blowing out of the NE won't help the cause
