LSU’s Tiger Stadium has been undergoing an expansion to the upper deck of the south end zone. Following the team’s spring football game on Saturday, head coach Les Miles was asked if he noticed any difference in the wind patterns with the changes to the stadium.
“We’re going to do a dynamic wind change study. It’s going to have to do with confetti and confetti droppings. We learned this by how they’re searching for that plane,” he said according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "Basically you're going to drop confetti in one area. The pieces are uniformly cut. Then you watch where it goes and you film that."
After reporters cracked up at his answer, Miles tried to convince them that he was being serious.
Whether Miles was actually being serious about a “dynamic wind study” is anybody’s guess. He did say though, that he noticed the breeze picked up a bit around the 50-yard line.
“For us, the 50-yard line has a pretty good breezy feel and then back into both sides, it kind of quiets pretty comfortably,” Miles said.
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the results of the study.
