LSU has announced that fans will have to wait a little longer to take pictures and get autographs from their favorite players and coaches, as the annual Fan Day has been moved to the spring. Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said there are many construction projects taking place on campus which just didn't make Fan Day feasible this fall.
"With the weather being so unpredictable, we really want to have this indoors," said Bonnette. "And without having these facilities we can't make fan day happen this month."
Bonnette says they are holding Fan Day next year in conjunction with the annual spring game. He says Coach O is really focused on making the spring game a bigger, day-long event that will attract more fans.
"He wants to put as many people in Tiger Stadium as he can," said Bonnette. "And we think this is a great opportunity to enhance an add to that experience."
Bonnette says the work that's being done on campus will in no way affect football season. He says the purple and gold nation is in for some nice surprises in 2017.
"I think our fans are going to be real excited when they see the new restrooms and concessions, and other things," said Bonnette.
