A donor stepped up to fully fund it. It's going to be a club sport until 2018. So I suppose it won't cost the athletic dept anything. Title IX I assume forced it.

Cheap A$$ Tulane. Bring in a real sport like women's soccer or softball.

Tulane would then have to find a place to play both of those sports...Yulman's field is not large enough for soccer, a we all know they ain't playin softball at Turchin

Wow, I can't wait to see what our sailing team will accomplish. We have such a great place for practicing and holding regattas and it sounds like they have some new 420s to sail around. Hopefully we can get this program supported and turn them into a champion! Reminds me of my high school days racing in 420s in New England.
When I was at Tulane, the Club team was ranked among the top 20, sometimes top 10 in the nation (Club teams and Varsity teams were in the same poll.) They beat Navy! They were damned good, and mostly Sailors from the Northeast, many of whom sailed competitively at Tabor Academy in Marion, Mass.

Thank you all for your ongoing support as my son Zach continues to beat leukemia

Women's soccer and softball would be great. Also, I think men's soccer would be awesoe as well.

Has Tulane ever had a legit Lacrosse team?
I don't yell. I don't scream. I don't argue. I just hit 'em over the head with a bottle.

I don't think we ever have and I don't think we ever will either. Too many men's scholarships that would have to be matched by women's scholarships plus no other teams nearby so travel costs would be quite expensive.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee or Andy Cannizaro. And now I think we can add Lindsey Scott Jr. to that list.
