Because it's a night affair, LSU football has become perhaps more of a social event than would be possible someplace else. Instead of having parties after the game, people in Baton Rouge dress as if they were going to the opera, have cocktail parties and buffets before the game, then troop to the stadium en masse. "Sometimes they have parties after the game, too," says Athletic Director Corbett, "although that makes a rather long day."
You would almost think that the city and the school would never want to see the '58 season end. And yet they can hardly wait, which isn't entirely due to anticipation about the Sugar Bowl. What they are waiting for is next year, when they can really prove how good LSU is. You see, there are only three seniors on Dietzel's entire squad, which means that in 1959 almost everyone will be back. Cannon and Fugler and Rabb and Robinson. The Go team. And don't forget those Chinese Bandits.
