The average for all conference schools is over 202. Our 142 seems pretty paltry next to that.

Two contributing factors: tougher academics, and too few student-athletes. We need to expand the number of sports in which we participate.

Women's Soccer and Softball are two sports that would help drive the numbers up.
Tulane needs Football and Mens Basketball to win to help generate the revenue necessary to add these.
