    We actually started thinking about a home game in the Superdome not long after I first got here," athletic director Scott Farmer said.

    So based on that timeline we should expect the Alden report to be fully implemented by 2035.

    Looking at the numbers...this is a ____ deal. I could be wrong, and please correct me if I make a huge error. In 2018 Mississippi State will host us. They don't have to pay us a dime to come to their stadium. They have 100% of the expenses, and 100% of the revenues, and with a sell out like I'm sure it will be, is a small fortune. With about 61,000 seats, let's use $40 a seat just to keep the numbers simple, and $200,000 like it would cost the Superdome again just to keep things simple. That's revenue of $2,440,000, and expenses of $200,000, for a net profit of $2,240,000. That's not bad, and they have zero guarantee they would have to pay so it's all gravy. Man they made out like bandits...glad they found a willing accomplice to fleece.


    2019 we head down to New Orleans to play them. Revenue sales will take care of expenses up to $200,000. I doubt the Superdome will sell out, but let's keep things equal here and say 61,000 at $40 a seat also. That's revenue of $2,440,000, and expenses of $200,000, for a net profit of $2,240,000. UL gets 57% of that, for $1,276,800. Miss St gets $963,200.

    So all in all UL gets $1,276,800...Miss State gets $3,203,200...over a two year period. The problem is, we could make that kind of money with a sell out of our own with a quality SEC opponent, and we wouldn't have to give them anything from the gate. That would not only benefit the University, but the city itself. Now...we are punting everything and giving all the benefit to New Orleans.

    I don't see the reason why a 2 for 1 without a guarantee is a problem for us. It brings the quality programs people want to see to Cajun Field. Not to New Orleans. This deal does way more for Miss State as a program, than it does for UL.

    If this is a home game, they need to be in the season ticket package. At the same value as a game at Cajun Field.

    Not gonna happen. What you will get though is a ticket order form in your season ticket package to reserve your seats for that game. We are getting jobbed but hey what more could you ask for. I love the idea of the game itself, but the guts of the operation stink like Fot Sarmers incompetent A55

    Stop it all you faceless buffoons! BTW, I hit BOP up on twitter yesterday and asked why his story did not include Rusty Clotier. Kudos to him for setting the record straight, no deal would have happened without him.

    We can get over a million per game without sharing as a visitor. You and I are fishing in the same pond.

    The only way we should have allowed them to not pay us a dime to go was to ensure we would get a home game out of it. That's crap. So basically, we have to go play an SEC team at their place and not get paid which is the biggest factor in us actually scheduling them in the first place and then we have to do the return trip in the dome where we barely get more than the majority for the gate........ And Farmer is happy about this? If I was 1420 and Farmer, i would have used a PR angle to downplay it rather than trying to impress everybody.

    Yes, I agree with your comment. Honestly, if Farmer is still around in 2019 and I have to pay extra for this ticket, there is a VERY good chance that I will watch it from home. If that is the case, I hope we lose our ___ financially.

    Do you think the difference could be recruiting opportunities and marketing/publicity?

    Again, lesson from the Boise State game: what good are you doing putting a shellacking out there for the world to see? I'm not at all saying we shouldn't embrace the opportunity to play up. But we bent over backwards to put Boise State on as many screens as possible at 11 AM. You think that did us much good from a recruiting/marketing/publicity standpoint? We're likely just plain bending over the barrel to have Mississippi show us the 50 states in the Superdome when we could at least sell out a premium priced ticket and keep the gate at Cajun Field.

    Did we bend over backwards? Everything I heard and read said we were forced that time, or 2:30

    I was thinking regular SEC payday, but now I'm reading nothing with a virtual split in the Dome.

    Unless this is to lock down the Super Dome for an annual home game on National television, this seems like an unfair price for UL to pay.

    But like I say, this is what I am reading, this is not something I know.

    Article was written in a manner to make everything look like this is a great thing for the university. We are all reading the article for what its worth but we understand the situation with this administration. We read between the lines. Others read the article for what its worth and think this is an awesome deal.

    The American Sports Network dictated the time. UL could do nothing about it. According to Farmer, TV may cause an earlier kickoff for the stAte game in November.

    Needs to be an afternoon kickoff regardless.
