Ex-Wave Owings finds success in the big league

By Matt Culken | Jan 29th, 2010 | Category: Issues, January 29th 2010 Print, Sports

Despite a less-than-stellar reputation for success in the last decade, Tulane Athletics have still managed to produce a handful of professional athletes. While Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is the best-known Tulane sports alumnus, Cincinnati Red pitcher Micah Owings is not far behind.
A 2005 graduate, Owings spent his first two years of college ball pitching […]

Baseball Preview

By Nick Peruffo | Jan 29th, 2010 | Category: Issues, January 29th 2010 Print, Sports

After last year’s 34-25 campaign, Tulane baseball faces a fair amount of uncertainty heading into this season. The Wave will face one of their most competitive schedules ever, with non-conference series against Ole Miss, LSU and Boston College. What the Wave lacks experience, however, it makes up for with an abundance of young talent. Many […]

Those Damn Yankees

By Jared Sichel | Nov 20th, 2009 | Category: Issues, November 20th Print Edition, Views

The late comedian Joe Lewis once said, “rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for U.S. Steel.” Nowadays, it’s more like rooting for Vladimir Putin, but U.S. Steel was also pretty unlovable back in the day.
Hating the Yankees is something that will never go out of fashion. Even if they stop spending more than every […]

Fortier fencers are ‘en garde’

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Apr 1st, 2005 | Category: News

Each week this semester, the Tulane University Fencing Club has taught high school students how to fence as part of “Fortierworks,” a program at Alcée Fortier High School aimed at improving the life choices of students.
Fortierworks was an existing program at Alcée Fortier when the TUFC was asked by program director John Wyseman to complete the […]

Three Point Play

If you were one of the many who packed Turchin Stadium Friday and saw the Green Wave get pummeled 15-1 by defending national champion Cal State Fullerton, don’t fret about Tulane’s chances to get to Omaha. The season is still young, and even good teams suffer slumps and bad performances. This Green Wave team will […]

Baseball falls to No. 3 after dropping two of three to defending national champions Cal St. Fullerton

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 18th, 2005 | Category: Sports

After dropping the first two games of last weekend’s three-game series to the defending national champions Cal State Fullerton, the Tulane offense finally came alive in Game Three to earn a 13-9 victory and a little respect.
The much-hyped series pitted the No. 1 Green Wave (15-3) against the No. 3 Titans (14-3), who eliminated the Green […]

Baseball wins sloppy contest

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 18th, 2005 | Category: Sports

A sparse crowd braved strong winds and cold weather Wednesday to watch the No. 3 Green Wave top the Texas Southern Tigers 8-4.
The Green Wave (16-3) was out-hit 10-7 by the scrappy Tigers (6-6-1), but Tulane capitalized on five walks, four errors and a hit batter to score five of their runs.
“It was an ugly game. Offensively […]

When it comes to Tulane baseball, winning is a way of life, especially at home in the increasingly hostile Turchin Field.
After all, it’s never easy for a visiting team to win on the road against a top-ranked team, much less in a place where alumni chant the “Hullabaloo” at the top of their lungs after every […]

Say it ain’t so, Jose

Congress issued subpoenas this week to several Major League Baseball players, including Jason Giambi, Sammy Sosa and Curt Schilling, to testify in regards to the recently revealed steroid-use scandal.
Congress has jurisdiction in this matter due to a quirk in the legal system; Major League Baseball is a rare exemption from our strict, century-old anti-trust laws. But […]

Harbinger Harry

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 18th, 2005 | Category: Views

Spring Break is here — thank God — and, barring a Topical Wave announcement, students won't have to hear another thing about Promise and Distinction for almost a week. Maybe by then the whole thing will have blown over. Then again, that's what Harry hoped about the orientation fee.
In the meantime, though, you can at least forget about it all […]

Baseball pounds Marist 43-11 over three-game sweep

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 11th, 2005 | Category: Sports

Green Wave baseball has grown accustomed to winning at home this season. In fact, the question these days is not if the team will win, but how it will get the job done.
No. 1 Tulane used a walk-off grand slam Friday, a hit parade Saturday and a display of power Sunday to sweep the Marist Red […]

True student-athletes

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 11th, 2005 | Category: Sports

It’s spring!
Midterms are ending, T-shirt printing stores are thriving from the business provided by Tulane’s intramural teams, scraps of eccentric architect projects fill the campus, overweight Green Wave backers once again are dancing at outdoor events and spring break is beckoning.
It’s also that time of the year when the athletic department of Tulane awakens from its winter […]

In honor of the basketball team's relatively painless postseason departure, Harry would like to salute Ivan Pjevcevic who, despite a nagging injury and a nagging coach, layed it all out on the floor last Saturday. †Ivan showed the kind of big-man leadership that's so urgently needed at the end of the bench.
In honor of Provost Lefton’s […]

Campus Spotlight: Jason Noah

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 4th, 2005 | Category: Features

Last week, the arcade had a chance to sit down with the leonine Jason Noah. Noah advertises himself as a sort of Dean Martin by way of Mike Piazza: one part earring, two parts lounge singer. His involvement in both music and sports makes him somewhat of a Renaissance man here on campus. During the […]

Basement: It’s hard to side with Bonds

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Mar 4th, 2005 | Category: Sports

Two things separate Barry Bonds from other athletes: his ability to hit a baseball and his even more impressive ability to antagonize the national media.
In case you missed it, Bonds chastised the large media contingency during a Cactus League press conference Feb. 22 for its continuous coverage of his alleged steroid use. According to the San […]
