Re: Quick look ahead to 2018

"We didn't play anybody that played in a quality Bowl Game. Other than OSU next year we won't play anybody that played in a quality Bowl this year." Holding my fingers back..... Agh!

Re: Wave picked 8th in AAC Preseason Baseball Poll

And if the 2018 season doesn't pan out the way the poll suggests and we end up being very competitive, it will confirm that the people doing this poll were too lazy to actually do the research and just went by last years results. They're not going by last years results. We finished 4th or 5th last ...

Re: AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

First off you're rarely if ever going to have a staff that can go 7 good innings every game. More importantly those guys were good but it took a bullpen to help get the game to them. One guy never has and never will be able to come in and close out every game. It's too simplistic to think otherwise...

Re: Pitching Coach Tighe Dickinson Resigns

It's risky for Latham to come to Tulane; it's also risky for him to stay at Southeastern: he doesn't make much money, that staff hasn't moved on despite several good seasons, and continuing to make NCAAs at SELU is no certainty either, in which case he is stuck. And a successful stint at Tulane wou...

Re: 31 losses (33 when TU gets eliminated)

. New coaches have new ways of doing things. Last years seniors screwed themselves and their teammates by not adjusting. Players will be gone and we have some that clearly aren't up to playing at this level. There's certainly a lot of truth to that. Still, I just haven't seen a thing from this coac...

winwave has the opinion that the 2017 team was going to stink no matter who coached him. There is no reason to try to logic or reason with him, that's his opinion, and he NEVER changes his mind or backs off, so why even bother?

Re: Pitching Coach Tighe Dickinson Resigns

That's not true about Latham at SELA. I see how one would make that assumption but that's not in the cards. It's why he should make the move if offered. You’re couldn’t be more wrong. I could see him coming here if offered because it would be a step up. But if not and Riser leaves Artigues would st...

Re: Pitching Coach Tighe Dickinson Resigns

It would be nice to get Latham. Any job's a risk but if he does a good job improving this staff but the other problems don't get fixed and TJ is fired he would have a good chance to hang on. If not he'd have no problem getting a job as those looking at him would know he was just let go b/c the new g...

Re: AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

I'll give you LaFrance. Massey is not the sure thing many want to give him credit for. There are other issues there outside of coaching. Zubia's not pitching. It also appears he has DH'd and not been in the field much.

At Troy Dannen's last job, Northern Iowa, the baseball program was eliminated. I am concerned the same may be planned at Tulane.
Not a chance. TD would get run out of town on a rail if he tried it.
Really. No need for that type of drama.
