Re: Let's Talk Football on the Westbank

Dang, I saw the thread title and was really hoping to get scoop on how Landry Walker is going to be post Keytaon Thompson and whether Shaw could bounce back this year. Losing Sportsnola hurts - both for HS coverage and Tulane coverage.

Re: Women's Basketball commit

Lisa's best teams typically had a versatile 4 who did all the little things well - think Marion Williams, Lacey Vicknair, and Gwen Slaughter. Mia sounds likes she could fit that mold.

Re: Baseball/ Jewett

Riser would have been an even safer hire than Cannizaro. He had already shown he could do it as a head coach at a school with less resources than Tulane.

Re: Wake Forest Score Prediction Thread

Those of you expecting Tulane to score in the 20's are delusional. Wake's defense is pretty stout. They shut out BC, held FSU to 24, Louisville to 20, and even holding Clemson to 33 is 15 pts below Clemson's average. I believe they return 8 starters from that D. With Tulane having zero QB experience...

Re: Kirk Merritt

Merritt is longtime friends with Tulane walkon QB Desmond McGovern - they grew up together playing at Delta. Related to that, with the weak QB play in Spring ball, don't be surprised to see McGovern get a shot at QB. He was out this Spring but is 100% now - is 6'3, 200 and quite mobile (4.7 - 4.8). ...

Re: Tulane's New AD - Troy Dannen from NIU

Northern Iowa has been very successful for quite some time, and without great resources being #3 in a modestly populated state. And, he's been the head guy for several years so he won't be new at the leadership part like Patulski. Maybe not a home run, but at least a stand-up double. Like the hire a...

Re: We do not want Joe Alleva

Alleva leaving was possibly the second best thing to happen off the field for Duke Athletics in the last half century - obviously hiring Coach K being the best. I wouldn't touch him.

Re: Potential AD candidates search

Rather than sitting alone in the top row as she normally does at games (not very AD-like), she was chatting up Dr. Stewart, who is on the selection committee. IMO Dr. Stewart should have distanced himself from her while the process is ongoing.

Re: Is watching this team better or worse than watching the Bob Toledo 2011 team?

Either way the product is painfully unwatchable. I do have to say its better watching with 5,000 in Yulman than with 5,000 in the dome.

Re: Will you predict the attendance for the Duke game Thursday night?

Kickoff 7,000
2nd Quarter 9,000
3rd Quarter 4,000
4th quarter 1,500
Add them up and that's how you get to the announced figure of 21,500

Re: Duke Score Prediction Thread

I will preface this saying that while I am a Tulane fan who regularly attends games I am a Duke alum and that is where my heart is. Aside from special teams I think the two teams are fairly even talent-wise. Tulane has an opportunity to run the ball against a depleted Duke front 7, but Duke has one ...

Re: Wait till Next Year

Regardless of the improved line or Tanner's maturation, nothing will happen until we make a change at OC. Five years for Eric Price as an OC, five times he has failed to crack the top 100 of FBS in yards per game. Considering there are only 124 teams, that is incompetence of epic proportion, as he h...

Re: How many football games will Tulane win this upcoming season?

I will go with four, but that is with the team in its current state. I'm afraid we aren't done with regards to academic issues though, and if we lose any more key players my projected win total could go as low as 2. We still have the Price's, and other than a year more experience for the O-line and ...

Re: Local high school baseball hitting leaders.

I have seen Grant Mathews play quite a bit and am not sure he would be D1 caliber. He's a fine hitter (lefty, good contact, moderate power) at the 1A level, but not a great fielder as a first baseman. His HS teammate Michael Mann was an equally good hitter and is riding the pine at D3 Washington Uni...

Re: Allstate Sugar Bowl Women's Golf Classic starts this wee

Even with the disappointing last round - 4th against that field is a great finish. This morning's updated Golfstat rankings had the Wave move up to 24th. After the fall the team was 41st, moved up to 31st with its 2nd against UCF, and is now up to 24th.

The San Francisco series is a return for us getting to play in the tourney at AT&T park last year w Cal, USF and one other team. We could not have gotten in that tourney without the help of Scott Sidwell, but I am guessing this series was part of the negotiated deal.

While college golf and the LPGA are filled with Asian golfers, Tulane hasn't had any. You can add Germany to the list with Latin America, Great Britain and Scandinavia. One other benefit of the majority of the foreign born athletes is they have been exposed to more at home and are mature beyond thei...

We're still 2-1 in my books - a bad loss to Wake Forest but very respectable wins against Loyola-Chicago and Miss. State. The other games aren't even worth acknowledging - even as wins they are actually killing any chance at an NCAA berth. That's the problem with a poorly written contract for the he...
