Tulane University’s athletics budget has undergone some changes recently. According to reports from a recent school-wide budget meeting, the administration considers athletics to be a source of revenue. However, the athletics budget is being reduced from around $17 million to $14 million1. In the 2022 annual budget, the total athletics budget was approximately $7.5 million2. While the sports teams at Tulane generated $34,183,387 in revenue, they also incurred the same amount in expenses, resulting in a net profit of zero3. For more detailed information, you can explore the 2021-22 Annual Report4. 🏈🎾🏀

It is true. They just aren’t interested. Actions speak louder than words. This is just another gut punch to the alumni and fans. Is anyone really surprised? Is anyone interested in spending any money on athletics when the school won’t consider it. Just a shitty situation.

Shoot, Tulane beat USC in a New Year's Bowl on a shoestring budget!

Why pay more?

It's exactly that type of thinking that has brought so much misery for most of the last 75 years.

I never realize how truly pathetic Tulane really is. I am done contributing.

I renewed my 4 season tickets, but have not written a check to Tulane's Athletic Fund. I did write one to FTW several weeks ago. Tulane's Admin needs to pull up it's jock strap, get a testosterone shot and tell the ingrates on "their board" shove the board up their azz and get in the fukin' game... they have 18 months at the most to make a damn statement, and that statement is not in words but in ACTIONS ...

For a cleats on the ground view, I met a Rutgers FB player in May, We chatted about the B1G and NIL, etc. I told him I was a Tulane alum, and his expression changed. "Oh the Green Wave! We were all sleeping on Tulane for years, but not anymore. You guys can play and everyone knows it!"
