Re: 2019-2020 Men’s Basketball Recruiting

Re: Ranking the Basketball programs in AAC

A few remarks: This is strictly comparing us only to our league. Our league is strong- a power conference/high major with the big east. With our new stature and funding we will improve. We also have better natural resources fans and intangibles to place us in the middle of the conference. You can t...

Re: Ron Hunter

Hunter is the hype man that Tulane basketball needs. We have a great conference, great facilities, and a campus/city that sells itself. Now we finally have the hype man to bring confidence to recruits/fans that this is a place for ballers. I'm excited for the future!

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Ron Hunter is a name that keeps getting mentioned around the internet. He would be an interesting hire- not a splashy or a sexy hire, but I would feel confident he would have us competitive. Checks off a lot of boxes. Sustained success, running a program with minimal resources and without a strong ...

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I would not be surprised if Aresco calls Dannen after the season, and strongly suggests that something needs to be done. Good point. The team is so bad that it's dragging the conference down, and if we start winning a few games, it would hurt the poor team that caught us on the wrong night more tha...

Re: McCleskey is aboard

There's certainly good reason for optimism for next season. It's the fourth year for the staff so it's their team and their culture now. We have our starting QB back. If Hall is as good as most of us think he will be we should see McMillan make a nice jump in production. He's have a host of good ba...

Re: UH fires the Major

Applewhite is Houston's Scelfo. Glad Houston's Renu Khator has the balls that Cowen doesn't. We need Houston, UCF, UCONN, Temple, USF to continue to grow as flagships if we're ever to close to the Big12/Pac in terms of stature.

Re: Dunleavy Dumpster fire continues Wave falls to win less Alabama A&M 67-59

There are some pieces on this roster. Time to bring someone in who can land some bigman talent and get this team to respectability. Get someone young and hungry or at least a Brian Gregory/Joe Dooley.

Re: Tulane Whips ULL 41-24 In The Cure Bowl

We're not losing any RBs, so technically there should be another one. Unless our official starting lineup is 3 WR, 1 TE and 1 RB. If so, considering one of the WRs was Clewis who was MIA for almost the entire two years he was here, and his replacement should be Jalen McCleskey, I figure that's like...

Re: Temple lost their coach

Greg Schiano rumored to be a top candidate. Could be a great fit. I mean winning 5 bowls at Rutgers is quite the achievement.

Crazy to think Temple has had 3 coaches poached in 7 years! If Temple can create that kind of environment for success surely we can too.

This team could've easily been 9-3 (wake, uab, smu) or 3-9 (tulsa, ecu, navy). The fact that we pulled through to get to 6 shows me we're improving and taking care of business.
