UH’s operating budget was $81.5 million in 2022-23, which ranked last among teams in the four major conferences, according to the data tracking website Sportico. At the same time, UH remains one of the most subsidized athl...

Re: Willie Fritz official to Houston

There’s going to be a breakup between G5 and P4 once this contract expires in 2025. Separate playoff system. Arkhou is just forecasting the inevitable IMO. If we don’t get out ASAP we’ll be in a separate Division once this all settles out.

Re: Faculty and non tenured employees unionize

NIL has killed athletics. Damn shame. Absolutely but I’d say “Amateur” Athletics. Anyone still using the term “Student” Athletes is in denial and living in the past. I would suggest that nearly all of the Tulane baseball players are student athletes as there is very little NIL being shared, and the...

Exactly! Tulane offered to match Clemson for Bowden and Houston for WF.

Re: Willie Fritz official to Houston

This is on point. I dont blame Willie for leaving. This is on Tulane for not delivering on promises to him. Besides 2023 AAC championship, he gave it his all, Tulane did not. And I am glad he keeps mentioning it. The athletic dept needs to hear it and prevent this from repeating with sumrall or fut...

Re: Rick Dickson Tulsa

A highlight with RD I’ll always remember occurred at the 2005 Super Regional at Turchin Game 1 vs Rice. Rick came and stood with us Railbirds down the 1st base line just past the Rice dugout. He happened to be the first person on the rail. One of the Rice hitters crushed a liner foul right at us. W...

Re: Willie Fritz official to Houston

We get too emotional about coaches here. Outside of Alabama every college football job is a stepping stone to somewhere else or could be, even LSU and Notre Dame. Whether he was going to leave or not is irrelevant, what is relevant is the University did not fulfill promises made that would have ele...

He didn't give it all during the entire 2023 season. He screwed up the offense with how he managed the coaching situation and lucked out with an easy schedule post-Memphis win. He was leaving regardless getting an opportunity at a P4 school with more resources. He tried the leave the year before wh...

I see your point, Tim, but don't think Fritz delivered so much as he lucked out with incredible leadership from Pratt, Williams, Haynesworth and Anderson. I think he (and Dannen) rode their coattails out of New Orleans. But you're right Dannen left a lot unfinished (and it can be argued started hal...

Re: Baseball presents Tulane’s best chance at a National Championship

Having watched most of the SR’s and CWS games the talent level of the final 8 or so is substantial. Very similar to our early 2000’s. We’ll be able to tell more with the draft. We have regional talent but to get further we’ll need additional studs besides pitching.

I like Ed a lot more than many but this article is very lazy. You can’t just add a player via financial aid, that’s not how it works. Pretty weak stuff by Ed. Then to say Tulane is still a baseball school is also pretty silly at this point. I don’t see where he says that Tulane is a baseball school...
