Rebels come to town to play Tulane at Turchin in baseball Feb. 22-24; first games I have noticed for the Wave as Ole Miss released their schedule today.
Also, Tulane at Nicholls Feb. 26; Colonels come to New Orleans vs. Tulane on May 7.
also, vs. SLU on April 9 in Hammond; and April 23 in N'awlins.

That is awesome to get Ole Miss to return a trip to Nola.

Great series to play at Turchin. A series to make a statement and gain a lot of momentum.

We could easily schedule 4 to 6 SEC games per year against UM, MSU and even Ark, Auburn, Bama or A&M. Alternate an annual three game "opening" series home and away and then several midweek games if not weekend. (Even a two day midweek series could work.) Admittedly midweek games might be on the road but then simply get a better guarantee. Point is maintaining SOS and still have a reasonably attractive home schedule.


Nearby SEC schools have always enjoyed playing Tulane. Although they can't say it publicly, they probably enjoy gigging LSU about it as much as we would.


Ole Miss series simply reminds us that the only people harmed by LSU's scheduling shenanigans are the fans who won't be able to enjoy the rivalry. Certainly Tulane to any extent it wishes can amp up its schedule with others to replace LSU. We aren't hostages to those guys.

Home and away with A&M would be nice. They like to travel and party, Of course Tulane fans in College Station might feel at a loss, but it is getting better.

You're forgetting about the players

I like this move by TD. Fans and players liked the lsu series but it was decided it was not in our best intetrst so he goes out and gets another good one. Improvising and not being an ostrich

IIRC This was already scheduled before that and the credit goes to the coaches. Coaches make the schedule in baseball.

You are right of course. Most players become fans and even if not, our buds in BR have screwed them too. Thanks Mssrs. Alleva and Manieri. Meanwhile I will miss playing LSU because rivalries are the best but I know who caused this and they reside on Nicholson Drive not in the Wilson Building.


Regardless our not playing LSU will not damage Tulane in the greater scheme of things one iota. It will just make life less fun.

I wish they were still playing. We all do. I know Jeremy loved those games and fortunately the teams he played on were 4-0 against the tigah. But in the end, screw those guys for ending a great tradition.

Well it is not so much who caused this but what caused this. We beat them five of the last six and as as their coach has said "I don't like losing to Tulane". So they wimp out the door with their tails hanging behind them because they can't beat us. There is no other reason. They can't stand being second in their own state even for one millisecond, and even if the game was tiddlywinks.

And as far as Ole Miss goes. They are a class orginazation. Their fans are friendly, as opposed to the obnoxious bunch from up the river. Kudos to them for scheduling games with the Wave. :thumbsup:

Fan since '54

Scheduling a weekend series with Ole Miss is not mutually exclusive to scheduling two midweek games with LSU.

Exactly lol.

No matter how good we make our OOC schedule on the weekends, it would always have been a more difficult schedule if we played LSU twice.
