ON THE PROWL: In New Orleans, Nakia Hogan reports although there are “no definite plans, LSU and the Tiger Athletic Foundation are surveying season-ticket holders to measure interest in two potential expansion projects at Tiger Stadium.” LSU Senior Associate AD for External Affairs Herb Vincent yesterday confirmed that the university and its athletic department's fundraising arm “are interested in adding club seats and/or suites on the south end of Tiger Stadium, or perhaps a club section within the existing structure on the east side of the stadium.” LSU also is “considering adding a club lounge below the east side upper deck that would be accessible to fans on the east side of the lower bowl, for an additional fee.” The 92,400-seat stadium is “among the 10 largest on-campus stadiums in the nation” (New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 6/15).
