08:15 AM ET 04.19 | A proposal to expand LSU's Tiger Stadium will be presented to the school's Board of Supervisors April 27. The expansion includes the addition of approximately 60 suites and approximately 3,000 club seats above the existing south end zone seats in Tiger Stadium, as well as approximately 1,500 general public seats above the new suite and club seating, according to a news releasen issued by LSU. The project will be funded by the Tiger Athletic Foundation in a similar manner that was used to expand the east side of Tiger Stadium in 2000 and renovate the west side of the stadium in 2005. The TAF will seek a $100 million bond issue to fund the south end zone expansion and to begin to address facility needs for non-revenue sports, according to LSU's release.

They just need to convert half of the field for seating, that should add a few thousand seats.

Besides, the Tigers seem to think the field is only 50 yards long anyway. :D

Just make sure to expand the parking lot area for that many more pre- and post-game partiers. Don't want an imbalance forming there.

It sounds like they are all "premium". Suites and club level. Wait til the marketing machine sells the seat licenses and extras for those great end zone seats. UTx made a killing on those.

didn't one place outlaw tailgaters, I though some time back that I saw where one did?

An SEC team outlawing tailgating? That's about as close to CFB suicide as it gets.
