You are correct Tulane is an AAU member.
They are near the bottom (but not at the bottom) of the AAU schools in research dollars so they sit on somewhat precarious turf.
Uc brings in almost twice as much research $ and this list is from 2008. UC's haul on research $ has swelled since then.
Damn....20 pages of March realignment talk and.....we still are stuck in the no-name no pay conference and NOT in ACC. After the Xavier lovefest by mo and lance and the enquirer, I'm losing my freaking patience!
We bring in about twice as much as what is listed there.
Of course, the AAU isn't above kicking someone out, so perhaps Tulane's seat isn't all that secure.
A simple search indicates that in FY 2010 UC had 443 million in research funding (221m in FY 08). Some of this jump was due to ARRA funding (Recovery and Reinvestment Act). Those dollars would now be mostly exhausted. The trend is very positive in terms of dollars.
Per wiki we are now over $500M. I think some of the recent initiatives with GE Aviation and others have given us a boost.
I know the list I found was from 2008.
So I added the statement that UC's haul on research $ has swelled since then.
Those at the bottom of the list probably are a bit nervous about their AAU status considering Nebraska was booted out and Syracuse left before being booted.

Interesting comment regarding expansion from a member of the PAC-12 brass.
Former Big 12 Commissioner Kevin Weiberg, now deputy commissioner of the Pac-12, who says, “Expansion is pretty much dead for us. There are not a lot of ready options, considering our geography, but it doesn’t appear to us that it’s necessarily dead everywhere. We think it’ll heat back up.” He added the Pac-12 “continues to explore those ideas” of an alliance with the Big 12 or others but said such arrangements are “easy in concept, but difficult in detail.” Its partnership with the Big Ten failed to take root, partly because the Pac-12 plays nine league games.
