Re: ARE WE BACK?

When your league is number 12, you have to prioritize playing a tough OOC schedule. The 2023 schedule was not too difficult, but 3 West Coast trips was excessive (specifically going to Seattle-Hawaii). But the West Coast has good teams and they’re willing to play so keep playing them. Losing LSU cer...

Re: ARE WE BACK?

Not yet. RPI tells you that right away. Oh, that wonderful metric that puts all the P4 teams waaaaaaay up high even if they suck, because they all play each other in conference play and just buoy themselves? Use the RPI for tourney seeding because, unfortunately, that is the metric that they use. S...

Re: Regional Prediction?

Starkville would be fine. Having USM there is fine too; more than fine as we should get a strong 2 and that’s not them.
Don’t want LSU anywhere near our regional.

Re: Baseball is AAC Tourney 3rd Seed (Tournament Discussion Thread)

Just took a quick look and at least on Boyd's world tulane is rpi 94. Wichita is rpi 95. Let's hope the extra pitching they burned today and a continuation of hot bats tips the scales in our favor. These are pretty even squads on paper Well, Wichita got three games against ECU this weekend to reall...

Re: Baseball is AAC Tourney 3rd Seed (Tournament Discussion Thread)

I'd prefer FAU too.
And I hope ECU comes back and beats Wichita.
Wichita has had 2 breezy games; they are 9-1 in their last 10.
If ECU wins they will hopefully have played 2 more games than us and they're already short on pitching.

Re: Baseball is AAC Tourney 3rd Seed

Jumping way far ahead here. IF the team goes 4-1 or 4-0 and repeats as tournament champions, is Tulane a #3 seed in the NCAA tournament this time? Probably so, considering the much better record and RPI Could be us at 3 and lsu at 2 in the ULL regional. We'd be a 4 seed. Lft would be a good spot fo...

Re: 2025 Baseball

We'd have won 34 this year had we not taken a nap against Memphis and UNO (after winning 2 straight road series). That may have put us on the edge of the bubble, but probably not. We need a strong ooc schedule to avoid a "win the tourney or bust" fate. (last year's was fine; it's just that...

Re: Tulane wins the series 10-8 in 10

Yes, the team is obviously improved over last year. But still not close to the NCAAs based on regular season play.

We have some good players and can hit. But also a lot of walks, hit batsmen, errors and blown leads and not focusing on several series.
Play clean this week.

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

ULL’s Football Coach was a terrible hire. Desormeaux is as dumb as a rock with his situational skills. We are very, very lucky to have our Head Coach who outclasses him by miles. That’s because we were willing to pay for it. Desormeaux isn’t bad for a budget hire. He’s made 2 bowls in 2 attempts. H...

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

We get ULL with them heading to Wake Forest the following week. I don’t think it has the same effect as it could with OU because ULL would likely be ok trading a win over us for a pay day loss. ULL also has two tune up games before us, vs Grambling and at Kennesaw St. That's the significant thing. ...

However, that Hunter should have been replaced, and wasn't, doesn't mean that Uhlman can't be replaced. The situations aren't the same (Hunter's buyout, e.g.) and the world isn't consistent. The teams look poorly coached in different ways. Baseball looks more classically "poorly coached." ...
