Re: When it's Hot and U have lot's of $$$$

Beautiful park. One thing I took from those stories is that the trend of smaller seating continues. The original Globe Life Park built seated 52,000 and it was later reduced to 48,000. The new park will now seat 40,000. So 12,000 less than the original park. This is like a Rick Dickson "capacity ve...

Re: How did you become a Tulane fan?

The pointer brothers were a part of the Wally English/Bob Davie staff. If we had that staff in 1980 things would have turned out much differently IMO Sorry, but we called Lionel and company the Pointer Sisters, well before Wally English/Bob Davie arrived. I have never heard the term Pointer Brother...

Re: When it's Hot and U have lot's of $$$$

The Yankees will be disappointed to have their second home, the Ballpark in Arlington, no longer host their trips to Texas. I would bet the Yankees are somewhere close to .700 playing there. Maybe it just seems they rarely lose there (and I'm a Mets fan!) but especially in the playoffs, the Yankees ...

Re: How did you become a Tulane fan?

I grew up on my grandparent's struggling dairy farm in the poverty belt of northwest Louisiana. My mother died when I was born and was laid to rest on her 20th birthday. I don't actually remember why or when I began to follow Tulane but I do remember announcing to my grandfather when I was ten that...

Re: Graff leaving Tulane for Pels

Graf has been enjoyable to listen to and I'll miss him. But we always seem to find someone that's pretty good. As much as I loved Graf's "Checkerboards, baby" call, I still remember Kenny B.

Re: How did you become a Tulane fan?

My best friend was a year ahead of me and went to Tulane in 1980-81. I was living in Jamestown, NC for my Senior year of HS, and frankly was more interested in Tulane because of academics and everything New Orleans has to offer. I wasn't aware of Green Wave athletics at the time I applied, and proba...

Re: Fritz and punting

I think the 10 worst punts say more about Fritz's confidence in our FG game and our passing game than it does about Willie Fritz's decision-making abilities. For the most part our passing game has been horrendous, and our FG game close to horrendous.

TJ had not yet arrived to teach the team how high to wear their sox, the proper angle for the brim of their hats, etc.

Each sport loses money at Tulane. I don't dispute that. But we put a lot of money into baseball and now we're not getting nearly the return we expected, as baseball is in the red. Football and basketball have a better chance of making money, and throughout the NCAA d1, are the two sports that drive ...
