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.
