LSU brings in Populous to assess facility upgrade needs

LSU "recently retained a firm to evaluate" their facilities, according to Scott Rabalais of the Baton Rouge ADVOCATE. When asked if there is "anything on the horizon," LSU AD Scott Woodward said, "We’ve hired an internationally renowned sports architecture firm in Populous to assess our entire footprint and all our facilities. We’re looking at what we need to do financially going forward to maintain this great place." Woodward added the Pete Maravich Assembly Center "turned 50 this year," and it "does need some TLC, as does Tiger Stadium and a few of our other facilities." He said LSU needs to be "prudent and smart in addressing these problems." Woodward: "A lot of it is going to be based on what we can do financially and how we do it" (Baton Rouge ADVOCATE, 1/23).
