Although football should be one of the last things on our minds before Hurricane Gustav arrives, this will affect Alabama football. Tunlane coach Bob Toledo has announced that the Green Wave could be forced to practice in a different state. From The Tuscaloosa News:
Tulane University has plans to relocate its football team to either Birmingham or Jackson, Miss., to prepare for next weekend’s game at Alabama if Tropical Storm Gustav impacts the New Orleans area.
“We have a plan to get all our student-athletes moving, and football-wise we have a plan as a team. We’re either going to Jackson or Birmingham. I don’t know which yet, but we have a plan.”
If Tulane relocates to Birmingham, the Green Wave will practice at Samford University.
