Believe it or not, there were people other than LeBron James who made announcements about their futures in the last few days.

From a local college perspective, two announcements could not have presented a bigger disparity.

What do Tulane and UNO have in common? For now, the only two Division I athletic programs in New Orleans. Five summers ago, both programs devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Shortly thereafter, both programs given five-year waivers by the NCAA to get back to a full complement of sports. (Oh, and one other thing. Full disclosure: I have worked, either on a contract or employee basis, for both universities’ athletic departments.)

Which brings us back to the present...

While I honestly do feel kinda bad for UNO, I have to selfishly admit it's nice, for once, being the team on the "good" side of the comparison. As someone in the comments below the article said, referring to Trahan's "gunfight" comparison, "one brought a gun and one brought a knife". In the past, Tulane has almost ALWAYS been the knife-wielder. It's nice to not be!

Too bad we couldn't beat them on the field or court.

UNO's academics are headed south at the same time ours are headed up as well. Basically Tulane found a way to get MORE people interested post-Katrina than before, and that is paying off both academically and financially. UNO is having the opposite problem Add in Jindal's budget cuts, and you get Div III sports.

At this rate, UNO will be on par with McNeese, Nicholls, and NW, and not just because of athletic standing. The upriver gang has no desire to help it succeed. It's a battle that Bobby figures has no reward for him to fight. Take money from Bubba St. U or take more from the commuter school that is tucked away on the lake? Out of sight, out of mind.

The only thing that saves UAB in bankrupt Birmingham from U of Bubba is a well entrenched medical program.

I don't know what you meant by the comment about McNeese, but they have the best football attendance in their conference by far -- probably as much as we've been drawing. They have great "Sky Boxes" at Cowboy Stadium, and they are building a new fieldhouse in the north end zone of the stadium, with locker rooms, weight room, offices, and additional seating for football (present capacity 17,000).
