An article came out from The Advocate that Southern University would prefer to forfeit their makeup games against Texas Southern on May 9th. The reasoning behind this is the fact that Southern’s baseball budget is struggling to come up with the extra money to make the trip to Houston for a single day doubleheader.
“We don’t have the money,” Cador said. “Just the bus is $3,000. You’re looking at $1,600 or so for a hotel and another $1,000 or so for food. So you’re talking about another five or six thousand dollars easy that you don’t have. That’s money I wish I had for recruiting.
“I’m saving money every trip to be able to make trip to the (conference) tournament and now they’re putting this on there.”
The conference baseball tournament might not be an issue because the last-place team in each division fails to qualify for the conference tournament. The Jaguars, who don’t play this weekend, are in last place in the West with a 1-9 record, three games behind Grambling, which is second to last at 5-7.
