LSU athletic director Joe Alleva spoke with the media on Tuesday and said that McNeese State cancellation from last weekend could cost the school somewhere between $1.2 and $3.2 million. Per The Advocate:

LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva said refunding tickets and game expenses will cost the athletic department at least $1.2 million and as much as $3.2 million. LSU’s costs include paying McNeese State its $500,000 guarantee for the game, as well as costs for personnel such as police, ushers and ticket takers.

Alleva said the school has an insurance policy for such issues, but he isn’t sure how much will be covered because a brief part of the game actually was played.
Alleva also provided fans with ticket refund details on Tuesday.

"I feel sorry for LSUs financial matters" said no one ever.

There were multiple cases of extreme lighting. Tell Joe to send his children out to play football in that weather and see what he says.

Save your complaints Joe, most of us have real problems.
