Thanks to ‘new math’ discovered by the Louisiana Legislature this past session, the fan refund issue for the LSU-McNeese football game from Sept. 5 is pretty simple.

First, announce a refund will be granted on next year’s season ticket (or single game) purchases. Later, raise the price of next year’s tickets an amount equal to the credit. Then announce you will apply the phantom credit to the increase.

You have both raised revenue and resolved the credit and other budget issues by swift, decisive, logical action.
