They all have something in common, well actually several things in common. For starters, all three schools were, at one time, members of the SEC. In fact, not only were they members, they were all charter members of the SEC when the conference was created in 1932.
Sewanee (The University of the South) left in 1940.
Georgia Tech left in 1964.
Tulane left in 1966.
Note: (In a previous post, we documented one of the main reasons why Georgia Tech left the SEC - basically they were unhappy with the gross oversigning of recruits. Our reason for that post was to serve notice that oversigning is not a myth and not something we made up out of thin air. Oversigning is real, and its historical roots are located in the heart of the southeastern conference.)
Back to the similarities: All three schools also have very high academic standards (US New and World Report Rankings):
Sewanee - 36th
Georgia Tech - 38th
Tulane - 50th
