    I'm pulling for LSU, but I'll be wearing an LSU hat and a Tulane jacket.

    It's complicated.

    only 3 current, healthy, LSU pitchers have ever taken the mound @Tulane:

    --last year, Nola started and pitched a masterpiece, going 8 innings and only allowing 3 hits, 0 runs, and didn't walk anybody

    --in '11, Kevin Berry faced 7 Tulane batters, walking 1 and allowing zero hits or runs

    --in '10 and '12, Chris Cotton faced a total of 9 Tulane batters, giving up 2 hits, 1 earned run, and walking zero


    only 7 current LSU hitters have ever taken the plate @Tulane, with the following career results:
    Raph Rhymes ('11,'12) -- 4 for 8 (.500), 2 runs, 1 RBI, 1 walks, 0 K
    Chris Sciambra ('12) -- 2 for 4 (.500), 0 runs, 1 RBI, 0 walks, 0 Ks
    JaCoby Jones ('11,'12) -- 2 for 6 (.333), 2 runs, 1 RBI, 2 walks, 0 K
    Mason Katz ('11,'12) -- 2 for 8 (.250), 1 run, 2 RBI, 0 walks, 2 Ks
    Alex Edward ('10,'11) -- 1 for 4 (.250), 0 runs, 1 RBI, 2 walks, 1 K

    earlier this season, Tulane won their series @Alabama W 4-0 (Fri), W 6-2 (Sat), L 12-6 (Sun)... it's the only series that Alabama has lost at home this season. Alabama is currently tied for #1 in the SEC with a 5-1 record in SEC play: they swept Georgia @ Georgia and they won their series 2-1 vs Tennessee at home

    Tonight is the 301st installment of a series that has gone on for 110 years.


    Mainieiri:

    "It’s always exciting to go down to New Orleans and face Tulane in a tremendous environment for college baseball, and our players are definitely looking forward to the opportunity."

    "The LSU-Tulane rivalry has been a huge rivalry for many years," Tigers' coach Paul Mainieri. "Tulane has had a great program for as long as I can remember."

    "I have the greatest respect for Tulane and their baseball program," Mainieri said. "It’s not a good program, it’s a great program."

    "When LSU and Tulane play you throw the records out. That doesn't have any bearing on this game. I'm sure we're going to get Tulane's best shot."

    "We have too much respect for every team we play to look past any opponent, especially one as good as Tulane," he said. "All we want to do is keep playing good baseball every single day."



    Tulane coach Rick Jones:

    "Obviously you want to play well against them (LSU) because of what kind of program LSU has," Jones said. "It's big for us, and it's big for our fans and always has been"

    "They've got a phenomenal club and (are having) a tremendous year"

    "In the 20 years I’ve been here, we’ve played a lot of outstanding LSU teams and this one is certainly one of the top ones.”

    "It'll certainly be a big challenge for us...it's an opportunity for us--a tremendous opportunity."
