You get what you pay for these days

LSU athletic director Joe Alleva sent an open letter to Tigers fans. In his letter, he points out that every LSU team reached the postseason.

Very good for LSU fans.

He also points out that LSU's success comes in part because, as Alleva wrote, " we are able to fund our sports teams at the highest level.''

Now comes the not-so-good news for LSU fans.

Alleva writes, "Ultimately we will have to look at increased costs for tickets and parking at athletic events.''

Translation: You'll be paying more -- again -- to see the Tigers play.

Of course, many will gladly pay more as long as the results keep coming. And that is the pressure on the athletic department -- to keep winning so the dollars keep coming.

LSU is just like any other athletic program in the country. You get what you pay for these days.
