Re: SBNATION on The Wave

It’s hard not to at least be a little disappointed that in year 3 of Fritz, Tulane has greater than 50% chance of winning only 1 of its 12 games using one set of advanced metrics. It’s also disappointing that, in year 3, a 6-7 record would be something to truly celebrate. Granted, if Tulane has a b...

Re: Tulane Football Camp end of May

We can thank Ed Orgeron for his participation in our camp. They'll be kids coming in far and wide that otherwise would not have. I hope LSU football prospers under their current staff who sees value in directing talent (particularly in-state), towards us rather than their SEC and Big 12 rivals. Let...

Re: Tulane Athletics

Re: SELA Game Two Thread

I hope you're not insinuating that Tulane is a major program. So far every Louisiana team we played has beaten us. Why would he want to come to Tulane with "major" in house restrictions with recruiting. Matt has his eye on a bigger fish. Who knew that in Miss. St. job would open up so fast. Unfortu...

Re: Tulane loses a tough one to ULL in 11, 5-2

It can be done. You could have financial aid and scholarship programs for students for a variety of non athletic reasons (need based, merit based, increasing diversity, veteran programs, etc). This is from Tulane's website regarding TOPS: "TOPS is a scholarship program funded by the state of Louisi...

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

I believe Tulane (and anyone else for that matter) can have as many "recruits" as they want. But only 25/yr. can be on scholarship. I assume the 75 additional Academy "recruits" are not on an athletic scholarship. I believe the Academics do not have tuition but stipends are paid (to all students). ...

Re: 2018 Schedule

The opening four games should set the bar for the rest of the season. On one hand, it's great to get all of the OOC games first so that Tulane can get the kinks out, but on the other hand, not winning the majority of the OOC games would be an issue.
