    Hi - I'm a new board member and as the handle probably reveals I'm a Tulane alum/fan. Right now I'm working on a collecting project, specifically collecting all the ticket stubs from Tulane Bowl games. One that I still need is the 1970 Liberty Bowl in which the Green Wave defeated Colorado. If any of you have a ticket stub from that game that you would sell please pm me!

    Also, if any of you went to the game and have stories about it, feel free to share them here. It was long before I was born so any stories are appreciated. I know it's probably not the best game to bring up since it was a Colorado loss, but maybe you'll humor a generally downtrodden Green Wave fan. Thanks!

    Wish I could help, but no go. Cool hobby, though, good luck.

    Maybe reach out to CU SID/Historian Dave Platti?

    Definitely open to reaching out on any leads. Is Platti affiliated with the university or on this site? Just need a way to find contact info. Thanks!

    David Plati is the SID, if anybody would know how to lay hands on something like that, it would be him.

    Think DBT was busy shopping for a pink suit jacket that day of the bowl game.

    Check cuatthegame. Stuart sometimes has full write ups of old significant (and insignificant) games.

    If Plati hooks you up, your payment to Allbuffs for the assistance provided will be as follows:
    1. Shake Dave Plati's hand, and
    2. Report back to this forum

    Ha. That was in even MY pre CU years. All I cared about then were zits and tits. Tits looked great in pictures but I'd never actually touched one.

    The archive for cuatthegame.com ONLY goes back 35-years.

    @MontanaBuff kicked off his labor of love in 1980 and has been going strong ever since.

    Thanks for tagging Montana, I can never remember his allbuffs user name.

    For some reason I thought I had seen some write ups of games earlier than 1980 there - like the 1971 roadies to LSU and tOSU. (That season was an amazing one for the Big 8 - only time a conference finished 1, 2, 3 in the final polls - the SEC will never be able to claim that sort of football dominance.)

    Hello again. I spoke with both Dave Plati and Stuart Whitehair and while both did their best to help me find a stub from this game, neither had any luck. I appreciate them and also the folks on this board who pointed me their way. As I told Dave, I don't have a rooting interest outside of Tulane, but considering the help and efforts I've had here (far more than from other schools) I'll be pulling for Colorado going forward. Hope you guys have a great season and kick some tail.

    Oh and if anybody does stumble across a stub from that game, feel free to reach out as I'd still like to have one. PM me here or email at my username @gmail.com. Thanks!
