  • USNA to pay all of of Tulane's travel costs

    Nice!

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Navy will cover the cost of the Tulane football team's trip to Annapolis this weekend, a gift that should save the financially strapped program up to $200,000.


    Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk, who served as Tulane's AD from 1987-90, made the offer to help Tulane cope with the destruction its campus sustained from Hurricane Katrina.


    With the support of Adm. Rodney Rempt, the Naval Academy Superintendent, Gladchuk has wiped out all the travel costs normally associated with Tulane's trip for Saturday's game.


    "We've tried to come up with a way to make this trip on Navy," Gladchuk said. "We're just doing everything we can to help them, to support them."


    Visiting teams are normally guaranteed an average of $120,000 from the host school. Gladchuk increased that amount by $50,000 and sent the check to Tulane, which is using the additional money to cover air fare for the entire football traveling party.


    Navy has come up with ways to save Tulane approximately $50,000 more in expenses for this trip. At the academy's urging, the Wyndham Hotel in Baltimore is providing complimentary rooms for the entire traveling party.


    Navy has also arranged for free bus transportation for the team throughout its stay in the area. The entire Tulane traveling party has been invited to a dinner at the academy on Friday night.


    In addition, all Tulane students who want to attend the game will receive a free ticket by simply presenting a valid student identification card.


    Gladchuk estimates the total relief Navy is offering the Tulane athletic department to reach roughly $200,000.


    "We just want this entire trip, except for the 60 minutes on Saturday, to be very enjoyable for the Tulane folks," Gladchuk said.

        If I had to do it over again, I definitely would have attended one of the academies.

        Started to go through the process at West Point, but decided against it because I was too chickenshit.

        Worst decision I've ever made.

        That, and not attending Game 6 of the 2004 NLCS as well as posting SLUBLUE's photo repeatedly.

              What's so great about this? That's our tax money being spent by the Naval Academy to pay for a bunch of rich private school types to go play a football game. Get the fucking boosters to pick up the tab.
