Re: Login Issues

Re: College baseball to root for

Unless he's a knuckleballer or maybe can pitch with his other arm or something...that's borderline criminal.

If they really wanted him, they would have gotten him. They wanted him enough to show up at the airport to stop his Tulane visit. They lost.

Like all the other defensive linemen they really wanted?
Maybe what they really want is to line up with no DL at all?

Re: 2025 Baseball

That’s ashame. The University caused this issue and they should correct the issue by parting with some of their own money. This is not sustainable for a fan base that doesn’t have enough big time athletic type donors. Tulane has to take the lead on this if they want to be a player. It will all come...

Re: Bill Connelly SP+ rankings

I respect Bill C and his ranking system, but also understand the limitations of his system (and any system). You definitely see these limitations with his post spring rankings, I am rather shocked at how low Tulane is and who is ahead of us. I will bet the house that ULL does not finish ahead of us...

Re: Vegas puts Tulane's win total next year at . . .

Here is the conference win totals. Opponents in bold . Notice we only play 2 of the top 7 teams. We have a favorable schedule on paper. It will be hard to replicate our defense form last year, but if we approach it we could easily win 10 games. Our offense has a very low probability of being the sa...

Thanks for the list. I wonder if ibieta stays on the roster or moves on. It’d be nice to offer him a scholarship (not counting toward 85) and let him hang up the cleats but finish his degree This routinely happens when players have career-ending injuries; I'm sure his degree is available on scholly...
