Tulane to expand athletic footprint with new facility, increased subsidies
 
Game-changing moments in athletics usually are associated with athletes.

Tulane’s administration hopes it hit a home run Tuesday when the school announced increased subsidization for its athletic department and released details of plans for its newest facility.

Although the university has been planning a new volleyball and basketball practice venue for two years, and gathered the funding this spring, it wasn’t until Tuesday that it revealed those plans. Tulane also will increase its financial commitment to athletics by $2 million per year in subsidies to the athletic operation budget and as much as $2 million per year in scholarship funding relief.

UNO has really opened up the opportunity for Tulane to be "the Premier" college sports team in New Orleans. I hope Tulane really steps up to the plate.

They need to step up the football program. I think they have the right coach but the university does not give players a break (I don't blame them). But it's hard to stay competitive like that. I really think Tulane leaves a lot on the table as far as football goes.

I think New Orleans could really benefit if Tulane could become a more prominent team in college athletics. Down the line it would mean more fans, bigger crowds and thus more money coming back to the city in taxes.

Agrees with Crusader.

Imagine if LSU was in N.O.

OR....

If UNO had a big college football team.
