Per D1Baseball.com, Tulane finishes 97th in RPI.

Other notes:

6-14 vs Top 50 teams.

In the top 25% of SOS, #67 in strength of schedule (out of 299),

128 in OOC strength of schedule (out of 299)

32-26 overall record
19-13 non conference
13-13 conference (includes tournament)

For many programs this would be an Ok season. Nothing splendid but not a dumpster fire. We used to say 40 wins and a decent conference record would get you into postseason.

In our case that means 8 more wins overall including maybe 4 more conference wins. So when you look back at individual games you could almost name the 8 games or so that made this another disappointment.

With our record against top 50, I don’t think adding wins against UNO and other bad teams would have been enough. We would have needed to beat good teams more often and I just don’t think we were good enough to do that.

In retrospect we were lucky to snag even 1 game from ole miss
play that series again in April and we're not holding them to single digit run totals in any of those games

I should have gone more in depth with the 6-14 vs Top 50..

Aside form the SEC, or maybe 1 other conference, playing 20 games against the Top 50 is a pretty robust schedule. On the other side, is the fact that we had an average, at best, out of conference schedule. Ole Miss and UCSB were balanced against some really bad other teams.

We played 3 game series against NCAA host teams Ole Miss and ECU. Another 3 game series against a probable #1 seed UCSB, along with NCAA tourney team Cincy. We also played against the following bubble teams - UCONN and Houston. Not winning these series (aside from Cincy), really hurt us.

And losing what, 7? Midweek games, against non-NCAA playoff teams did as much damage as anything..

Oh well, on to next year.

I’d say nearly all of the SEC, ACC and Big 12 are playing 20 games against top 50.

Digging even deeper.

A majority of our conference played at least 20 "Quad 1" games per warren nolan. We played 20 and were one of 5 teams to play at lease 20. We tied for the fewest Quad 1 wins with Memphis in the conference (both sharing a 6-14 record in those games).

We played 14 games against teams with a 200 or greater RPI. Cincinnati, USF and Memphis played 10, ECU played 4, UCF and Wichita played 3, Uconn and Houston played none.

So we had the worst Quad 1 record in conference and played significantly more 200+ rpi games than anyone else in conference (double the amount NCAA rpi worth contenders ECU, UCF, Uconn and Houston played COMBINED).

FYI, last year we played 30 Quad 1 games (won 10) and only 3 games against plus 200 rpi teams. 2017 we played 27 top 50 rpi games (won 14) and again only 3 games against plus 200 rpi teams.

Non Conference Strength of Schedule finished at 135th (per warren nolan). How does that compare to years past?

Last year: 15th
2017: 28th
2016: 51st

Warren Nolan doesn't break out OOC vs overall SOS past 2016.

This year's schedule isn't even in the same ballpark as previous years.

Correctamundo
1-2 v. Ole Miss
0-1 Army
0-3 UCSB
1-0 McNeese
2-2 Cincy
1-2 ECU
1-2 UConn

that is a 3-6 mark against at-larges.
