Always sweet to beat the tiggers!

Lots of clutch hits and some good pitching from some. Our defense continues to be a problem. That ball hit to Heinrichs should have been a routine fly out. They had him playing ridiculously deep. Then they kept him back after that. Thank goodness we came back.

Yes. We somehow managed to overcome a bunch of fundamental mistakes and still win. Not you’re typical LSU powerhouse sure helped. I told everyone in the tailgate we needed to score 10 runs to win the game also told Troy Dannen the same thing after we were down 3-0. We can score runs so we’ll always have a chance even with bad defense, bad base running, bad bullpen pitching and bad catching.

Speaking of Troy- he had nothing Tulane on. No shirt, no hat, not even a lapel win. The small stuff matters. Especially when we are playing them.

:D As even Sharief Ishaq of WDSU was forced to admit, we have now won 5 of our last 6 games against the LSU Tiggers!

Fundamentally we are really bad. Outside of that we are playing decent baseball.

Note to Tulane:
Don’t hire NOPD for traffic control for this game next season. Leaving the Claiborne parking lot was bad and dangerous. NOPD forced all exiting traffic to the right (East) instead of allowing traffic to exit away from the stadium and cross Claiborne to go West where then wasn’t any foot traffic. Instead NOPD send traffic back towards the crowd that was leaving the stadium by foot on Ben Weiner. Autos leaving the Rosen parking lot that wanted to go West were first directed East and had to wait at the corner of Ben Weiner and Claiborne until there was a break in the foot traffic. Once the break occurred NOPD allowed the cars to go pass the stadium and make a u-turn and come back and wait again on the other side of Claiborne and Ben Weiner for foot traffic to clear if one needed to go West. It was a complete nightmare scenario causing traffic to stack up in both directions forcing all auto traffic East right into the pedestrian foot traffic. 90% of the traffic going home usually heads West and could have safety exited right from the original Rosen lot entry point away from the pedestrian crowd. Put TUPD back on traffic control please. They direct traffic fine for every game and know the pedestrian patterns exiting Turchin. NOPD once a year does not.

Good point, because I had always thought the "forced right turn" made the most sense, but the foot traffic is a very good point I had not considered. (And yet I often wonder about the safety of our fans who have to "play frogger" on Claiborne before and after games.)

Perhaps someone with authority will read this and consider alternatives. It would be nice if Claiborne traffic could be stopped in one or two minute intervals to allow pedestrians to cross. (While allowing exiting cars to turn left onto Claiborne)

Any better ideas?

LSU's Reveille makes no mention of our Wednesday night 10 to 9 win over the Tiggers.

Positively LSU, no class act from A to Z. Even the loss of a baseball game to Louisiana's premier university must be denied.

Can you blame a top 25 team for not bringing up a mid-week loss to a rival that's not in their conference? Really? And for what it's worth (and it's worth a whole lot more than the game Weds night) Reveille doesn't have an article about the last two games of their weekend series last weekend against Tennessee. There's a whole lot more important things to complain about LSU. And by the way, we're the premier PRIVATE university in the state. The best academic one as well. That and a ticket will get you into a sports event (in other words it means NOTHING when talking about college sports. NOTHING.)

Hmm, check and see, they had an article for their mid-week win over us on March 21st? http://www.lsunow.com/daily/photos-lsu- ... 68da1.html

http://www.lsunow.com/daily/lsu-basebal ... 65c41.html

And, I know this might be a sore point with you, but this year, unlike last they failed to report Louisiana's bar results, including Tulane's stella 91.07% bar pass rate? But, perhaps you are right and such an "august" publication as the LSU Reveille no longer has time for such things as LSU mid-week college baseball and Louisiana law school bar results? :P :lol: :-D

It's not a sore point. It's a WHO GIVES A CRAP? It has NOTHING to do with sports, which is about winning and losing on the field/court/gridiron. WHO CARES? Not me, or 99.99999% of people that consider themselves sports fans. We could be the #1 law school, #1 national university, AND #1 in each discipline we offer degrees. It would still be meaningless when talking sports.
