Giving this about as much seriousness as it deserves. There's three paragraphs about Tulane in the following realignment story, and all three come off as a desperate plea for someone to think of the Green Wave.
The source said that Tulane would become a viable option for the Big 12 if it were to grab four schools to beef up the membership to 12, in a situation where BYU decides it doesn't want to leave its football independence or its new tie to the WCC in all other sports. Tulane is interesting to the Big 12 because of its location in New Orleans and in a state, Louisiana, where the Big 12 is absent, as well as the school's renewed commitment to sports and facilities after Hurricane Katrina.
No. No way. Never. Not a chance. Stop.
This has to end. I get it: nobody wants to be left behind. But when Tulane is leaking realignment related things to ESPN, it's over. This has gone too far.
