My biggest concern would be LSU refuses to come to NOLA and play us. That would cost Tulane it’s biggest baseball payday and would really hurt our baseball program. Counting ticket sales, suite sales, parking and concessions we probably gross in the $125,00-$150,000 ballpark for this one game. They’ve done it in basketball and football already. Wouldn’t be surprised if they did it in baseball.
Exactly what I said would happen.

I guess we’ll see. Sad thing is it could have easily been avoided.

Is this what happens when you win 5 of the last 6? But TPS, you know of nothing official yet, correct?

I guess it becomes official when the 2019 schedule is announced. Of course we want to play them but we gave them a reason to pull out.

It could have been avoided by us not sucking and also not refusing to televise the game last year. Colossal fuckup by Dannen if this is true.

He killed baseball at his last stop sure looks like he’s on his way doing the same here. Who kills a 100 year rivalry going into their 3rd year at a school?

Sucks big time as a longtime Tulane fan. The one game I look forward to playing every year. The one rivalry that remained with them was baseball.

while I do not agree with TD's decision, good ole Joey "Azzhole' Alleva ...or as he is know in North Carolina , Joey " guilty until proven innocent' Alleva, strikes again .... make no mistake cancelling the Tulane series will get lot's of push back from the LSU fans and media ...this could be the straw that tickles a "strippers backside' and gets him fired.....

I don’t think so. LSU fans(which includes the media) have been wanting to cancel the Tulane baseball series. They don’t like that we charge ridiculous prices for the game and then this year we don’t even televise it. They’ll be thrilled. They believe Tulane baseball couldn’t survive without them and they’d love to see this:

Yes Alleva’s decision here but it hurts us. Personally I saw it coming. LSU dealing from a position of strength. So when Tulane declined TV it didn’t sit well with Alleva. So now we get this. Alleva gets last say.

Agree totally. Other than a pay day, we get nothing out of this. We aren't getting any of their recruits. To replace their bump in rpi, we will be forced to go on the road for a mid-week game against another top 20 program. It sure appears our AD is trying to go out of his way to shelve baseball.

Funny. I was reading their board and they want to replace us with USM. That’s who I thought we could replace them with.

We’ll probably replace them Southern. :oops:
LSU going to be loaded next year. Dumb on that reason alone to drop the Wave now. I wonder how many of our games will be on TV next year? :x

This deserves its own thread.

This is a colossal fuckup by Dannen and he should be raked over the coals. Y'all can blame Alleva all you want but this is 100% on Dannen. TPS called it.

When the media picks it up. I’ll move this to a new thread.
We gave LSU a reason to quit playing us at Turchin. That’s why I cringed when we told LSU no TV. I knew Alleva wouldn’t stand for it.

Do you really think that is going to piss off LSU? They already play 3 of those teams that you mentioned. They have their own 4 team tourney early in the season already. Why split the gate at The Shrine when they get 90% at home plus concessions.

Home and home over. Started playing each other in 1893. I skimmed through the history and we’ve played one another each year since 1911. Only broken up a few years when Tulane didn't field a team or the record was unavailable. (1917, 1918, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1931, 1933, 1934, 1935 and 1936)

The teams do not matter...bring in UCLA, Stanford and So Cal...Michigan, Michigan St,Wright State....Oklahoma, OSU and Oral Roberts.... any mid west school would love to come to NOLA in April to get the hell out of the snow and get some games in...that is why "Spring Training" is held in Florida and Arizona...ya get some big name teams and exposure in different parts of the country

No doubt he screwed up here. He's got to fix his own mess up.
Yulman is where Tulane athletics went to be buried! Tulane is small time for all time. It's time to put Tulane athletics in it's small space in life.
