Two of the top four highly questionable programs on the honesty analytic . Cheating does translate to winning at any cost .

If only bowling and beach volleyball would have carried their weight, imagine the possibilities.

We were a two point conversion away from being tied for 126!

Probably true

obviously they did not take into account Womens Rugby or Sailing when compiling this report

Our best sport for the 2018-19 year was, by far, Volleyball. Didn't count one iota!

And had we not completed the two point conversion against Navy, we would be tied for DFL, (Dead F'ing Last for those challenged by acronyms!) This is what we deal with as Tulane fans.

We found our way out of the deep hopeless abyss despite the best attempts of some. We will be used as success story and inspiration for others. We will climb our way up this list rapidly over the next 5 years. I look forward to it.

I was going to be conservative and give no predictions- but why not. . . We’ll never be stanford because of conference $$$, endowment and prestige, but ideally we could be a top 30 school with athletics similar to the top of our conference. We could/should be comparable to northwestern/duke/uva/vandy. . . Better then wake forest ?

Unfortunately, for the same reason we will pull ahead of ull, la tech, G4. . . . those peer institutions will pull away from us. Ideally we can be the oakland a’s, while theyre the baltimore orioles (bama =yankees)
