Tulane football is Chantastic.

You may not know this, but Georgia Tech travels to Tulane the second week of the season.  Having a road game against a mid-major is bad enough, but here’s what makes it really special:

It took 14 minutes for Tulane fans to make a statement.

That’s how long single-game tickets to the Green Wave’s home opener against Georgia Tech, in the newly-constructed Yulman Stadium, were available to the general public.

Prior to Friday’s brief public sale, Tulane officials said it already sold all but 2,000 season tickets to the new stadium. Despite a slightly higher price tag – $50 for the opener, as opposed to $35 for the remainder of the season – calls flooded the Green Wave ticket office on Friday morning.

All without a single accompanying hot dog or Coke.  Somehow I doubt the same would have occurred at good ol’ BDS.

    Speaking of road games against mid-majors, I noticed that Mizzou is playing at Toledo this season. How does that make any sense?

    • Ohio recruiting is the only thing that comes to mind. Maybe it was a two for one deal.

      Gary Pinkle was HC at Toledo for ten years before leaving for the Mizzou job… I think it’s just GP throwing them a bone with the home & home.

        I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, our conference has been infiltrated by head coaches from the Midwest. Where are all the Jackie Sherrill’s?

    Tech would wait til the UGA game to open a new stadium so they could sell out.

    The ACC wants to trade with the AAC Tech for Tulane. Seriously, what’s the difference?

      If Tech can’t beat the Mighty Mighty Green Wave in the SEC Refugee Game it may be time to re-brand CPJ as being something other than a Genius

    Whoo boy, dem Nawlins folks are fared up to see a genius in action….Laissez les bon temps roulez.

  5. They only sold out because there’s nothing else that’s fun to do in New Orleans; I mean, it’s not like Atlanta where there’s so much else for people to do…
    Or, maybe all the Techies bought the tickets so they could go see their first pair of boobs (non-anime) on Bourbon Street…

    A 30,000 seat sellout.

    Congrats to Tulane, but it’s a long way from the SEC for both schools.
