Has the baseball record ever been this bad?

Have our pants and socks ever looked more ridiculous?

Have we ever had a more clueless head coach?

If TJ is inflicted on the Tulane Nation next year, it won't be any better. In fact, it could get worse, as word of his Capt. Quig style spreads among players and recruits. Dannen needs to act decisively and quickly before TJ turns the Tulane baseball program into a Leper Colony.

NO argument from me. When Tulane loses that 33rd game (probably a "two & thru"), Jewitt MUST be replaced. I just wish that TU still had a shot at a coach like Matt Riser. That possibility is probably now off the table.

1990 we finished 19-35 4-16 in the Metro

1993 we finished 22-31 8-7 in the Metro

But nothing else close outside of those two seasons.
This goes back only to 1965

Do you even know Matt Riser? Doubt he is that thin skinned.

Tulane beats the #1 seed 11-6 . Third time we've beaten them this year and we did it against the conference pitcher of the year for the second time. We advance to play ECU at 11:30 tomorrow. We'll be on a back diamond, Robin Roberts Field, so the game won't be broadcast.
We have the talent to win this tournament. If we beat ECU next I can see us winning this thing.
We have the starting pitching to win it if they can each go deep. Strange though that just yesterday you said we didn't have much talent. :mrgreen:

I didn’t say that. I said based on last year’s final results I expected to lose this year.
We have enough talent to win and had enough to win last year. Beating the champs 3 out of 4 proves that point.
Now with that said I’m not expecting us to win it. :oops:

I was trying to make a point that we play below our talent using UNO as an example. When we play to our talent level we usually win (3 of 4) over UH as an example. We are weak in the pen though. But I’ll say it again that we had and still have better talent than our record showed these past two seasons.

No one has said we didn't play below our talent level. However our talent is and was limited. We should have had winning season's but we don't have Regional level talent at this point. Sometimes you just match up well with a certain team. Most consider ECU the best team. They swept us at home. Now we're due tomorrow. Roper's been hot since getting over the ankle injury. He'll be on two days less rest but IIRC he only threw 57 pitches on Friday. Glad he wasn't sent back out as the tournament is everything to us. We really need a complete game from him but hopefully he gives us no less than 7. Not sure of how they handled their pitching to know how short of rest there guy will be on. Hopefully their in the same situation.

If we had a winning record against this schedule we would be a borderline regional team.

I doubt 29 or 30 wins gets you in this year. This years schedule is the 10th toughest. I don't think last years was near that.

We were at 82 in the RPI so two or three more wins wouldn't have put us anywhere near a Regional.

Our RPI is at 831 So 4 or 5 wins wouldn't have pushed us up that far.

It wouldn’t be 26th but depending on who those wins were over we could be in the 40’s-50’s still playing for a potential at-large bid right now.

But I’ll say it again that we had and still have better talent than our record showed these past two seasons.
No one has said we didn't play below our talent level. However our talent is and was limited. We should have had winning season's but we don't have Regional level talent at this point. Sometimes you just match up well with a certain team. Most consider ECU the best team. They swept us at home. Now we're due tomorrow. Roper's been hot since getting over the ankle injury. He'll be on two days less rest but IIRC he only threw 57 pitches on Friday. Glad he wasn't sent back out as the tournament is everything to us. We really need a complete game from him but hopefully he gives us no less than 7. Not sure of how they handled their pitching to know how short of rest there guy will be on. Hopefully their in the same situation.
If we had a winning record against this schedule we would be a borderline regional team.
Yes. And very likely last season especially coming off back to back Regionals.
I doubt 29 or 30 wins gets you in this year. This years schedule is the 10th toughest. I don't think last years was near that.
Yes. Last year’s SOS was 20th RPI 82
http://warrennolan.com/baseball/2017/rpi-live
We were at 82 in the RPI so two or three more wins wouldn't have put us anywhere near a Regional.
Not saying that. We started 3-12 should have been 10-5 or so. Our SOS was 20th so it was fairly close and very good. Our RPI would have been much better with 7 more wins and 7 less losses.

It wouldn’t be 26th but depending on who those wins were over we could be in the 40’s-50’s still playing for a potential at-large bid right now.
With our talent level those wins would have ben over the UNO"s and Sela's and that wouldn't have gotten us close.

Here’s my statement

Right. You said we have more talent than UNO. I agree.
I was trying to make a point that we play below our talent using UNO as an example. When we play to our talent level we usually win (3 of 4) over UH as an example. We are weak in the pen though. But I’ll say it again that we had and still have better talent than our record showed these past two seasons.

We had 27 wins last year and getting to 29 or 30 wins wouldn't have made the RPI climb that much. We didn't have the talent to win 34 games.

I disagree. We weren’t prepared to play to start the season. Later in the year we swept a very talented national runner up LSU and UCONN. We easily had the talent to win 7 more games early on.
Early on we lost to some bad teams that hurt our RPI. Losing to bad teams like UNO, Army, Air Force, Columbia and others kill your RPI.
That’s 4 wins. And we played SD, UCSB and Stetson 10 games. We went 1-9. If we just win 3 more there you have 7 more wins in total.
