After claiming the No. 6 spot in the first ranking of schools by the College Football Playoff committee, the Alabama Crimson Tide will next travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers on November 8. LSU has also claimed a spot among the Top 25 schools, ranking at No. 19, and the team will also experience a bye in Week 10 of the season. Six more rankings will be announced through December 7, but the November 8 meeting between the two SEC West teams has already garnered high ticket prices on the secondary market. 

 

According to TiqIQ, the average price for LSU vs Alabama football tickets for the Week 11 game at Tiger Stadium is $446.74 on the secondary market. The game will serve as the final and most expensive home game on the LSU football schedule this season, trumping last week’s game against Ole Miss, which owned a secondary average of $250.56. The cheapest ticket available for the LSU vs Alabama game is currently listed at $147. 

Last season, the two teams met at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa in Week 11. That game saw significantly lower secondary ticket prices, averaging at $332.41 and 25.59% cheaper than this year’s game at Tiger Stadium 34% more expensive on the secondary market. It was the only home game on the Alabama football schedule that season to have an average price above $200. The Crimson Tide went on to win their ninth consecutive game of the season after beating the Tigers 38-17 at home in 2013. Much like this year, LSU had an identical 7-2 record heading into their matchup with Alabama, but the team will hope to see different results next week as their annual rivalry shifts to Baton Rouge. 

Rankings are likely to change over the season’s final five weeks, but Alabama’s visit to Louisiana will serve as one of the most expensive games in college football this season. The Crimson Tide enter their November 8 game against the Tigers at 7-1 and currently sit in third place in the SEC West behind Ole Miss and unbeaten Mississippi State.

While Alabama remains a heavy favorite to win at Tiger Stadium in next week, LSU already has experience dethroning the SEC’s top teams. Last week, the Tigers led an upset over Ole Miss at home, taking down the then-unbeaten Rebels 7-10 in a pivotal divisional matchup. LSU owns a 7-2 record and sits in the basement of an increasingly competitive SEC West this season, but their low placement won’t hinder the importance behind the game. If Alabama hopes to keep whatever playoff hopes they have left alive, they’ll need to come away with a win over the roar of one of college football’s most audible and loyal fan bases in LSU.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
