What you pay for

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

Since Unified Commencement began with Scott Cowen�s first year as president, Tulane has attracted mediocre keynote speakers. In fact, calling them mediocre is generous at best. Attracting big name speakers to Tulane University is extremely difficult partly because we make it that way.
Tulane will not pay for a commencement speaker. Gibson Hall bureaucrats think that most […]

He confidently strode to the plate to get in his practice swings. He approached the plate from the right side and got into his stance.
One quick and powerful swing later, Barket walloped the ball far over the right field fence. If this is any glimmer of what fans will see from Barket in the 2005 season, […]

For Danny Wuerffel, however, the cost of contribution means more than just a simple financial donation. Wuerffel, who played seven seasons in the NFL after winning […]

The Basement

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Nov 12th, 2004 | Category: Sports

Winning is something that every team prides itself on.
Earlier this year when Army, Tulane’s opponent tomorrow,
captured its first win in over two years, there was reason for
excitement. They snapped the longest losing streak in Division I-A
history, 19 losses in a row. That’s a lot, even to a Tulane fan.
People may joke that we have a terrible team, […]

Reality check for Johnson

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Nov 12th, 2004 | Category: Views

Dear Editor,
I consider myself
pretty liberal – definitely a member of the Left — and,
according to Chris Johnson in “Reality check for the
Left” in the Nov. 5 issue of the “Hullabaloo,” in
need of a “reality check.”  I’m happy to say
that I’ve had one. After some soul-searching, I’ve
decided that I agree with Republican ideology. Their support of
less taxes, states’ rights and smaller […]

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Nov 5th, 2004 | Category: Sports

Conference USA basketball enters its last season in its current
state as eight of the 14 members are leaving the conference after
this season. Nevertheless, it should be another exciting season of
basketball in a conference that produced six NCAA tournament teams
and two NIT teams last year.
(25-7 overall, 12-4 C-USA; tied-first in C-USA)
The perennial C-USA power will look for its […]
