Tulane Green Wave Baseball

After a long time off, we will finally be back for the upcoming Green Wave Baseball season. The season begins in 16 days, so we are scrambling to update the site.

The Green Wave have been ranked 25th in the nation by Baseball America for the first time since 2008, as they have 21 letter winners returning from last year.

The site will hopefully be updated by the end of the week, to include a current roster and schedule. We will also add Player Profiles in the coming weeks.

We are in the process of adding writers for the upcoming season, and if anyone is interested please email us at rollwavenation@gmail.com. Thanks again and we look forward to the upcoming season!

ROLL WAVE!

Freshman RB Orleans Darkwa

After another hot and productive practice yesterday, the Green Wave have this year’s first taste of two-a-days.

Today’s first practice will commence at 8:50 AM and the second will begin around the 3:00 PM this afternoon at the Westfeldt practice facility on Tulane University campus.

The players seems to excited about the first two-a-days of fall camp, as Ryan Travis tweeted this morning:

First day of two a days…I’ll just look at it as a 2 for one..2 chances 2 get better in 1 day!

A couple highlights from yesterday’s practice:

-The offensive line continues to build up higher expectations, as they have looked extremely impressive so far throughout camp and their conditioning was on full display yesterday.  It looks like QB Ryan Griffin will have time to deliver the football this year, which is a fantastic luxury.

-CB Phillip Davis had another great day on the defensive side of the ball, including a nice hit on WR Joe Kemp that forced a fumble

-Freshman RB Orleans Darkwa continues to have a great camp, as he is making a push for some touches in his rookie year with the Green Wave

We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.

Today marks the start of the 2010 campaign. Under the direction of fourth-year Head Coach Bob Toledo, the Green Wave will look to improve on a 3-9 year in the 2010 season. And all that improvement begins today on the practice field.

Toledo leads the team into their beginning of 2010 preseason camp. At approximately 9:20 AM today, the season kicks off at the Westfeldt Practice Facility with the year’s first practice, which is open to the general public.

Over the last two days a combined 97 players (66 Veterans, 30 Freshmen, and 1 Transfer) have reported for camp. And they are all eager to get out on the field and finally start playing.

The entire team, coaches and players, met officially for the first time yesterday in the late afternoon. After the meeting concluded, the Green Wave indulged in a large “family” meal.

We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.

Temple University to Join Conference USA in 2011?

Temple Owl and Heisman Hopeful, Bernard Pierce

From a school source, Temple University Football will be invited to join Conference USA for the 2011 season.

Citing the source, C-USA is looking to expand to a 16-team conference, which was previously discussed at the C-USA Spring Meetings in Destin, FL.

Doing my own research on the possible realignment, I came across this article from the end of May stating, “…schools mentioned as possible targets if C-USA were to expand included Temple, Louisiana Tech and TCU, or perhaps some schools from larger conferences that might begin to fall apart during realignment, according to some people connected to C-USA.”

The source also mentioned that IF Temple would to join C-USA, it would be as a football-only affiliate.  Temple is currently a football-only affiliate of the MAC, because the schools primary conference, the A-10, does not sponsor a football league.  The Owls joined the MAC in 2007, after being an independent in the 2005 and 2006 seasons.  Temple was forced out of the Big East due to a lack of competitive and poor attendance numbers.

However, the program has since dramatically improved under Head Coach Al Golden,  faring 9-4 last year, the best season since 1979.

Regardless if Temple actually joins C-USA, there are obviously some internal realignment and expansion talks occurring.  UCF looks like it’s on the way out after this season, as they have publicly stated that they want to be in an “automatic qualifying conference”.  There have been other rumors that Memphis will depart with UCF to head to the Big East.

The conference realignment circus is not yet over and every conference will play its own role in the shakeup. Whether it’s a 14, 16 or 18 team-conference, the C-USA will look much more different before the beginning of the 2011 season than it does now.

Green Wave Alum Jeremy Williams Q+A at Chargers Camp

Tulane Alum Jeremy Williams

Compliments of the North County Times, a Jeremy Williams Q+A at Chargers Training Camp:

Q: You’re one of several receivers fighting for the No. 5 spot on the depth chart. How do you stand up in that group?
A: By not thinking about it. The focus should be on football, not making a squad. If you can make as many plays as possible and do the little things right, then you’ve done your job. The coaches are going to choose one. I hope I do enough to make them choose me.

The full Q+A can be found here, on the North County Times Website.

EDIT: Another story on Williams here.
