I'll have to track that down. Never even seen lobster in a poboy (though heard about it back in the day). That sounds awesome. ThanksHey, Greenie there's a place out in Chalmette real near the prison. Can't recall the name, but the best shrimp and lobster poboys ever.
For what it's worth, I had a supremely wonderful experience at Antoine's.
New Orleans has the same culture of a cosmopolitan South that Atlanta (at our best, at least) does. I think any Tech man or woman will find the place very comfortable.
Young but best since Paul Johnson has been here. Yes we like him and have a back up as good but different and not much game experience. Many of us feel this could be a special year. As always injuries play a huge part in team success and we will know more after Saturday.You asked if I have questions, I am a bit curious about your QB. I know you had the guy transfer out a year ago, and that is (oddly) the position I've studied up the least about with GT. Do you like your guy?
Yes it is. And they have happy hour on Fridays for crazy cheap with live music. I don't know why I didn't have that on the list.waveprof: is columns hotel still uptown? that is a cool place to have a drink.
I'll be too intoxicated by just being back on campus for the first time in my lifetime (I'm curtailing any tailgate drinking because of the heat). Usually the game is top dog for me. For once, it isn't.
That said (and I mean this nicely, I'm not the message board jack---, just trying to give my honest perspective) if I were laying money down on an even money bet, I'd lean Tulane. Not because I think we are great (we're not "there" yet) and not because I don't think you all are any good (I actually think you are better than a lot of your own fans seem to think you are).....but because I think we match up extremely well. For instance, we play Duke two weeks after you. I think you are a better team than Duke this year, but I am far, far more worried about that game from a TU perspective than I am GT. I went to VMI undergrad so I've seen a lot of triple option. Our speed on defense matches up well, and our secondary (based on last year, not last week) is a you-better-not-throw type of secondary (even for a passing team). I think our speed will make it difficult for you to stretch the field left to right running, and if you fall back on throwing.....watch out. Meanwhile, I think our passing game will have success. If our two biggest DL hadn't graduated, I'd be downright confident. But with them gone, it should be a good game. I will say this, if you get ahead early, you could STOMP us. Our team is young and fragile IMO.

Yes, but now that we are re-entering a relatively major conference, it is mostly only the old guard who does that. When we were bouncing around an ever shrinking Conference USA with an administration that wasn't investing in sports, the SEC whining was more consistent. Now that we are investing and moving up, you hear it less. And, in honesty, I think most of our fans would rather be in the ACC or B12 than the SEC. And most of us aren't "upset" about the American. If the American keeps going the direction its going, I'm not too worried about it being left out long run. But CUSA/Sunbelt/MAC are all heading fast toward total irrelevancy (and MWC may not be far behind).Thanks for all the great info, waveprof. I'm curious, though, does your fanbase have a vocal segment that bitches and moans all the time about no longer being in the SEC like ours does?
St Charles Streetcar to campus, walk across campus. You'll be walking right through the tailgate section that way.What will be the best way to get from the French Quarter to Yulman on gameday? (not driving). What is the tailgating scene like on campus? How easy is it to flask in?
