Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

I have to say that it's hard to be optimistic about this season after today's offensive showing. Play calling was uninspiring and one-dimensional. We looked slow and unaware on the edges (how many 3rd and 8s became 4th and 1-2 because WR ran the route short and was tackled immediately?) Defensively ...

Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

Why did we attempt less than 10 passes in the 1st half with dual threat qbs? And why in the hell can we not find a kicker that can kick a 20 harder? Defense played admirably but 3rd down on both sides was less than stellar. Whoever was returning kicks and punts (Badie?) made horrible decisions at wr...

I will always be partial to the bball floor of the early 90s. Would love to see some of that incorporated into the new floor with AW. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=ba55174d65&view=att&th=15dcc65854ae643f&attid=0.1&disp=safe&zw https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=...

Re: Tulane and LSU host FB camp in June

I probably would have forced LSU's hand on the game they owed us as part of the deal but that may not be something Dannen or Fritz wants at this time- maybe wait until we are in a better position to win. Also, I disagree that the camp will increase the threat of poaching from LSU. LSU is the elephan...

Re: Tulane and LSU host FB camp in June

I see it a different way. TU loses more recruits to out of state schools than to LSU, which is why its no secret that CWF has wanted to pair up with LSU over an out-of-state P5. Attract the same level of recruits, serve as their host, and don't have to compete for the recruits at your own camp.

Never ceases to amaze me how many losers hate Bowden. Only at TU do fans bad mouth the most successful coach in the past 2 decades at TU (our only quick turnaround ever?).

If Tulane is AC's dream job, we will get another shot at him. Hell, if he thinks TU should be a national power, he should expect not to get first dibs on the job. Let him get some HC experience. TU should not be in the business of grooming HCs- especially not in baseball. I don't understand the urge...

Re: Baseball Coaching Search

I will stop short of saying that Cannizaro would be a bad hire, but he is not a known quantity in terms of the level of success he would bring to TU as a HC. THose of you saying he should be hired without a search have severely low expectations, i.e. you don't appreciate the Dannen era yet.

Re: ULL Game Thread

This is a good opportunity for Tulane to pick off a top 25 opponent. The Cajuns have played poorly on the road - particularly in midweek road games. Hopefully we can keep up the momentum from this past weekend and jump on them early.
