Before LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron took the podium at Southeastern Conference Media Days, the program’s newly-minted athletics director Scott Woodward made an a radio appearance on local radio program Talk Louisiana on Monday Morning. During the interview with substitute show host Jim Nickel, Woodward discussed what he hopes to accomplish in his first academic year with the program, the implementation of alcohol sales in Tiger Stadium and even teased an upcoming staff addition. Woodward confirmed that LSU’s athletics facilities sustained little to no damage as a result of Tropical Storm Barry, and that the program, as well as the city, “dodged a proverbial bullet” over the weekend. Among the most highly anticipated questions Woodward answered during the interview pertained to the sale of alcohol in Tiger Stadium during the upcoming football season.
