BATON ROUGE, La. -- GTN writer Gary Laney took your questions:
From Bryan (Houston): LSU used to own Rosenblatt. Will the Tigers like the new stadium in Omaha?
Gary Laney: Skip Bertman's LSU teams, in particular, were built for Rosenblatt Stadium, which was a hitter-friendly park for most of the Tigers' run. LSU was the team in mind when the term "Gorilla Ball" was coined. To me, it was a huge advantage for LSU to play in that venue for national championships, because it played similar to Alex Box Stadium.
