Jordan-Hare has been unkind to LSU

Paul Abell/US PresswireCam Newton is one of many Auburn players who has recently had success at LSU's expense at Jordan-Hare Stadium.BATON ROUGE, La. -- Jordan-Hare Stadium at Auburn should look familiar to LSU fans.
Like many stadiums around the SEC and around the country, it's a puzzle that's added pieces over time. It began as a modest 7,500-seat venue in 1939 and has skyrocketed over time to the 87,451-seat monstrosity it is now, the result of nine expansions since the original concrete and steel was put down around the same time World War II was beginning.
It's the same story that can be told about numerous SEC venues, including LSU's own Tiger Stadium. Unlike NFL stadiums, which tend to get built from scratch after teams win staredowns with municipalities who have to build them, college stadiums tend to be like old trees -- each layer of the stadium going out (and up) tells a more recent chapter of the arena's history.
