We definitely need a contingency plan. The city could suddenly decide to stop turning a blind eye and say no home game on the 19th.
While idiocy in New Orleans government would be far from the first (or last) time, the farthest anyone would logically go would be no fans. Tulane has enough alumni in places of power in the state that if Tulane had their games canceled, LSU would have to cancel too (with their 25,000 fans allowed) because the hypocrisy of canceling Tulane while not canceling LSU would be too much to overcome... and you know nobody would DARE suggesting canceling LSU's game.
Pete, my understanding is that New Orleans is in phase 2, but the rest of the state is in phase 3. That means different rules for Tulane and LSU :-/

I see in the other thread that Tulane announced that we have clearance from the city and state government, so I it sounds like we should be good to go!

Tulane doesn't have many in power. You need both the state and the city's approval. LSU has that in B.R.. Tulane has the state as does every other FBS team in the state. It's the mayor that is different. Fortunately we have found out now that she will not block Tulane from playing due to our protocols.
Here we come!

Cancelled. Houston replaced them with a trip to Baylor (who lost a game due to La Tech having an outbreak)

Some reporter from Lafayette decided to write a scathing story about the "lack of honesty" at LSU and in our desperate-for-scandal COVID times, it made USA Today:

Nothing really surprising here... A bunch of players had it, they probably got it at bars, the curfew from bars isn't 24/7 so what can we do?
