It was no accident that bleacherreport.com recently named Baton Rouge one of the top fifteen college cities in America.

As they put it in their report, "These charged-up Tiger fans pack into "Death Valley" for its famous night games and create one of the most intimidating advantages in all of college sports. While Baton Rouge isn't the standard college town, its incredibly deep connection to LSU football earns it a spot on this list."

It's also no accident that southernliving.com reports that last year, in 2022, LSU fans created not one, but two, earthquakes during the LSU victory over Alabama!!

Simply put, in Louisiana, LSU rules the roost!  And there are no casual LSU fans.  Our fans are die-hard, hard core purple and gold freaks!  We will even leave our LSU season tickets to a loved one in our will.  Yes, it's that serious!

So serious, that we have our own set of unwritten rules.  And there will be no concessions on these rules.  Totally unbreakable; even unbendable.

With the season opener this Sunday at 6:30 pm against Florida State, there are some who might not understand the complexities of what is now upon us.  So, if you're new to Louisiana, and you've just discovered the life of an LSU fan, we're going to help out by taking those "unwritten rules" and put them in writing.

LSU Fan Rule #10

Your stupidity is not my problem.  Weddings are for bye weeks. It's not my fault you are starting your married life proving to everyone you are a horrible planner. I won't be there but I will wish you the best of luck as soon as the game is over.
