 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -Tulane's football team has been uprooted again by a hurricane.
But the Green Wave isn't holed up in a gym with no power like they were with Katrina in 2005. Instead, the team is spending a week practicing in Birmingham and staying in a nice hotel while closely monitoring the situation with Hurricane Gustav on TV.
Tulane is preparing for Saturday's game at No. 24 Alabama after making arrangements ahead of Gustav last week.
Reminders of the plights of New Orleans and Louisiana were all over the team's hotel. Besides the 115 or so Tulane players, coaches and administrators, the hotel was filled up with storm evacuees and their pets.
The players are able to keep some normalcy despite the stressful situation. They are practicing at Samford University's football stadium and having team trips for movies and bowling.
