    It's not UL. It is the catering company. Used to be sodexo not sure if they still have the contract. I paid 2 dollars for water at a freshman football game on Wed would expect to pay a little more at a college venue.

    The vendors are the same people that have been there the last 10 years, at least.

If we sell a thousand bottles of water at $3 but sell 5 thousand when it $2 then it's a no brainier. People will just spend more when they feel like it's reasonable mark-up. They goal should be to get the person that was gonna spend $20 to spend $30 and the family that was to spend $50 to spend $70.

    If you wanna have a $30 bloody mary stand like the Superdome,I'm all for it. There will be some that will pay it for the novelty but the rest of menu needs value items. Not cheap like $1 dogs but $2 or $3 items that people will buy without thinking. Walmart does this when your about to checkout. All the impulse buy stuff is conveniently right there. That's what I mean about the $2 water.
    It's not a huge mark-up so you don't think about it.
    USL mindset at its best.

    I said it a decade ago. Winning those first New Orleans Bowl was the worst thing to ever happen to us. It's done nothing but inflate expectations and game day prices.

    As expected, no one was ready to handle concessions for this crowd

    What I meant by capacity was, when the crowd was at its peak tonight. I'm sure conncession workers were happy that there was not 44k in the stands.

    Is someone complaining about paying $2 for water? I pay that at EVERY high school sporting event I go to. You're lucky that's all you're paying for it.

    Home side concession line had to be +200 people deep during 2nd quarter.

    Beer lines moved decently quick.
