The games are at 6:30, 2 and 1. They will all be on ESPN+. Rice is 8-13 and had 2 mid-week games against Houston. They are a light hitting team with so-so pitching and weak fielding.

It looks really dark in Reckling Park. You can barely see the walls and can't see anything beyond them. Looks very inadequate.

Banks really has no clue how to put the bat on the ball. He just guesses and swings as hard as he can.

14-6 in top of 11th and Wave still batting! I hate all these runs. Save some. We might need some in the next two games.

Nice to get so deep into their bullpen. The big lead allowed us to pull Moore and maybe get a few pitches out of him Sunday.

Tulane takes game 2, 10-1, and clinches a win of the series. Welch does a good job and goes 8 innings. Need Clements to step up tomorrow and help get the sweep.

What happened to Rice? Years ago they were a baseball power.

In 2003. 21 years ago, the Owls won the NCAA Baseball National Championship. Rice made its last appearance in the College Baseball World Series in 2008.πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

The same thing that happened to us. The private schools don't have enough scholarship flexibility to be able to recruit the best players. NIL may change that, but we'll have to wait and see.

Yep, transfer rules and scholarship use rules changed killing Rice and Tulane.

The transfer rule that hurt Tulane was when they changed it to where baseball players had to sit out a year like in other sports. Now it's back to where they can play immediately which is a help to us

For the most part, baseball players would be happy to stay at schools like Tulane and Rice if scholarships made it more affordable to do so.

if I remember correctly, since about 2018, students at Rice, whose families combined income is 200,000 per year or less, attend free of charge....the 2022 Fed stats show an average Texas famliy income of $125,000

If I remember correctly, that Louisiana students who qualify for admission to Tulane and combine income of parents is less than $100,000 get a free ride!

If both parents work, extremely unlikely combined income is less than $100k
