I’m as hard on Dannen as anyone on here, and I’ve been on the case for more support for baseball since day 1. Support from a admin perspective, ie more scholarship money and aid.
I’ve been saying to everyone about that since the beginning, that being said, I don’t believe this is his fault, this is 100% LSU being a baby about wanting more money that isn’t there’s from our own home games. That’s how I see it, until someone proves that I’m wrong, this is not Dannens fault. What’s sad is LSUs AD is acting like this and it’s not even that much money, pouting and pulling out over 100 grand because his ego got deflated.
If LSU was trying to strong arm us last year and trying to get majority of the tv dollars for our own home game which is what I suspect happened (renegotiating contracts or we won’t play y’all), then screw them. I’m not bending over for them. Rick jones wouldn’t either. They cancelled this game, not us, give me the ball or I’m going home type stuff.
Of course we want to play this game and Dannen does too, but we are not going to take it up the a** and play for free because they are LSU. We want a fair deal for our own home games as they want a fair deal for there own home games, the deal we’ve always had, if they are trying to change up the terms all of a sudden then I’m fine with walking away. I don’t want to play them. In fact I don’t really want to play them in pontiff classic either.
Well just play MSU home and home every year, then we can invite Tex a&m and ole miss for home and Homes, heck we can even throw an sec tourney every year and invite all there competitors to Nola to recruit. Everyone wants to play in Nola. We’ll be fine.
Alleva and LSU did this, pretty obvious they backed out, not us. And I’m def not bending over for them. Adios
