Re: Cure Bowl Thread

I welcome fans of opposing teams to come here and discuss games. That is one aspect of gotula.net that I find lacking. I frequent many college message boards and none of the others are as insecure about opponents sharing their views. We complain about censorship by the mods on yogwf but here it's ou...

[*]Signing the deal would increase Tulane's revenue from $2mil annually to $6-$8mil. That's not chicken feed.

If Willie and the boys do leave, should TD "write the check" and go after Les Miles? Could we get him? Or is his payout still too rich for us?
I could be wrong but we could pay Les $1 a year and LSU would be on the hook for $4,999,999.

But he aint coming here or to any G5.

Yet.

Would fans be happy if the Wave went 5-7 but got a bowl bid?
"Happy" may not be the right word for it but I would feel better than 5-7 and no bowl bid, "Happy" might be if we miraculously won said bowl game.

MY DEEP THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: I think Ohio State has a chance to win this game if they can control the line of scrimmage.
I think a key to victory would be scoring. I am convinced that the winner of this game will be the team that out-scores the other one. Just a gut feeling.

Tulane ought present a standing offer to purchase every Audubon house, next to the stadium, at a premium over market value. That would negate any NIMBY complaints about diminution of value.
