Man, most of the games are predicted to be so close! And the odds I've seen say Bama is favored by 1. Cnestg8r and I are Tulane grads, but I'm for everyone who plays Bama. Sorry, Darlene.
Tangent: Big athletic announcement at Tulane. Just got this email:
Please join us for a historic announcement today at 1:30 p.m. in the atrium of the James W. Wilson Jr. Center. For those unable to attend, you can follow the live stream on http://www.tulanegreenwave.com/
EDIT: Tulane is building a football stadium on campus! Yay! It will cost 70 million; the board has already pledged 40 million.
Tulane didn't start having games at the Superdome until after we left. I loved rolling out of the dorm, pre-gaming at the Sammies and SAE houses, then walking a few blocks to the Sugar Bowl, then after-partying at Sammies and SAE. Fun times.Great news. Now they actually have a shot at building a well supported program. I don't know if you ever saw a Tulane game in the Superdome, but they had all the atmosphere of empty catacombs. I guess you saw they hired a new head coach, got him off the Saints staff.
