TBH, I surprised we're seeded that high. We really stumbled down the stretch and really didn't deserve anything higher. We will now see what this team is made up of in terms of grit and determination.

Don’t think so brah. We were like 50/50 W/Ls the last 3 weeks so actually I’d say the opposite.

Don't sleep on the greenies, especially if they have a LH pitcher that can't break 90...

How the heck does a 19-40 team make tourney? Is it like March Madness, conference winner gets in?

How in the Frick. Of you are 19-40 you should never get a look at post season. The regular season means much more than a 4 day conference tournament. I'll never understand that in any sport in college

No, the committee just thought that 18 of Tulane’s 19 Wins, Plus the fact that they ALMOST got back to 500 were so impressive they decided they were very deserving!!
