Re: Let's Play "Did Ya' Know "

Here's something some of our younger readers may not know (and some of our old farts may not remember.) There used to be a preseason game played in Chicago every year (most, anyway) between the defending NFL Champ and a team of recently graduated College All-Stars. They quit in '77 when some NFL Gms...

So Skip Holtz would be the best we can get.
I don't think we could get him. While it's not a lateral move the angle isn't very steep.

I'm going to make a leap of faith and guess that there is no ever-loving way that anyone would be so stupid as to raise prices in addition to implementing the new seat license fees.

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.

Coach Willie Fritz,

Your team was NOT READY TO PLAY and that is squarely on you and your staff.
There was a great line spoken by Michael Douglas in the movie Traffic that went something like this:

"I've seen better organized monkey shit-fights at the zoo."

Re: NIMBY's prepare for the opening of Yulman Stadium

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. And as houses come up for sale, hopefully Tulane would actually acquire them. I don't think you've priced upt...

Re: No WWL TV Willie Fritz coaches show

I could be wrong but I've always been under the impression that coach's shows were always paid for by a booster. The station doesn't put up any money; it just sells studio and broadcast time paid for by the advertising booster. It's also used as a mechanism to pay the coach more money.

Re: New facilities announcement

Which fully underscores what a disaster Scott Cowen was for Tulane. If we can somehow overcome the effects from his tenure, and that’s a big if, it will take a generation. The PV of the lost revenue will never be recouped . Cowen himself was the Titanic. Absolutely. In the six years since TCU got a...

Guys, what historically gives you any hope that the administration will financially support athletics to the extent need to compete?

Ga Tech in 2014 was hot. That was the only time in my life where I had to leave my seat while watching a game to go into the shade and cool off.

Re: Service sucked

This may not be the right thread for this but what the heck?

Does anyone know what the actual attendance was last not? Not how many tickets were sold but how many actual butts in seats?

My very unscientific guess would be about 8,000, and if I had to bet money using that number I'd take the under.

. The team we lost to is widely expected to be about 50 places higher in the D1 rankings than we are.
For most of the night they looked like a team that might not win another game all year.
