I guess this is where the trickle down effect of P5 money comes into play. More funds for the athletic dept means more money available for scholarships, so you get better players, even in minor sports. In addition, you can actually fund more sports because of the money. Either way, we're one of only two schools in the Top 25 that isn't a P5 (Kent State @ #7).

Don't want to burst anybody's bubble or be Debbie Downer, but this ranking apparently comes by virtue of the tourney win.
I'm not sure if anyone noticed but that tourney had no P5 participants and only 4 G5 schools (USA, WKU, Troy and UAB).
The team also needed (and got) a stellar final round/day to catch Lamar for the win.

The next 3 tourneys over the next 5 weeks will be a much more valid test of where the ladies are in relation to equal competition.

Must carry some weight with Golfrank magazine, because otherwise why put them ahead of all those other P5? Why not just let them languish like Lamar and the rest of them?

It is "GolfWeek" magazine and they do a pretty good job when ranking teams...and as far as PEE teams are concerned GolfWeek has nothing to do with ESPN or any other TV broadcast company, and their rankings over the years have justified the system they use ...

My point was that years ago, you'd see more small schools listed. Think baseball in the 1980s. Rankings used to be filled with the Tulanes, South Alabamas, Cal-Fullerton, and Wichita States of the world. Eventually the money influx to the P5 schools trickles down to the smaller programs, giving them better facilities, thereby attracting better athletes. They then move up in the polls. In addition, the "Power 5" designation has become a mindset, intentionally or not, to where its accepted that the "P5" schools are "better", and they get favoritism in the rankings. Not saying its intentional on the part of the Golfweek Magazine votes, its just a mindset.

and back in the day baseball, men and womens golf, swimming and for many Track and field were a diversion until spring, and regular season of Football...but now, especially since title 9 the PEE's are putting money in these sports...back in the day South Alabama did not have football...basketball and Baseball were their sports...hell there are still many smaller schools making "waves" against the PEE's Coastal Carolina comes to mind in baseball....Tulane would be a player in men's golf, you only need a few players, equipment cost is virtually zero after the initial investment...I do not think Tulane will ever be more that a 7 to 9 win football program at best...if it wants it's name in NCAA sports,Golf, Basketball and Baseball is where their future lies...Football will never be able to get enough players to build the proper depth necessary to compete with the top 20 programs in America, at least not with the current admission standards

i was very disappointed to see mrs bower leave. she built that program and kept it afloat after katrina. every coach that has come through was handpicked by her and im afraid that if our current coach ever leaves that we may struggle to find a leader of the same caliber. mrs bower carried a lot of clout in the golf world.

Hate to say "I told you so" but.............I told you so.

I would be surprised to see this team in a Regional, let alone Top 3 AAC.

I am not going to pass judgement on one bad tournament...it happens to many teams...sometimes a "track" fits a team and sometimes it does not...beside "fall" golf is used for learning...next March is a different story

Well, apparently, this "track" also didn't fit the team. I guess you'll point to the fact they did beat an NAIA team, a non-FBS school and 1 FBS program that they've improved. :roll:

Another bad course, right?


A bad course, I do not think so, it is beautiful there....looks to me, several teams did not enjoy the view very much, including The Ohio State University team... I played the course at Texas A&M on Friday, the course was OK, one of the easiest courses I have played in many years, but I did not play very well... on the Monday before, I played one of the more difficult tracks in metro Austin and scored very well...but that's Golf, it is a great deal like having Sex, U don't have to be very good, to enjoy it very much !!

I'll rephrase counselor.

Another "track" that "doesn't fit this team."

Bottom line. Since people were singing praises about a Top 10 ranking and I warned that the team was not deserving of such a ranking, they have finished last or next to last in 3 straight tourneys. If Fall ball is for learning, then it doesn't seem they've learned too much as of yet. Hopefully, the can learn better in the winter.
