Re: Seat Licenses

With next to zero demand for tickets, seat licenses would be the end of many season ticket holder purchases. We need to win and win big and regularly to create demand. If and when we have demand, seat licenses MIGHT not drive off our fans. Right now it would kill the fan base that, quite frankly, sh...

Re: TD You Owe Us

If I remember correctly, there were many, many posters on here that said if we could become consistent winners in football and basketball, that they'd be willing to let baseball slide. I'll hold my judgment until I see what the coming season on those two sports provides. Yep. Baseball success has b...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

LSU baseball takes center stage tonight. Bregman MLB All Star MVP with go ahead HR in the 10th. :oops: Yes, the whole baseball world is talking about how he went to LSU. Not really, though.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

To add insult to injury an LSU fan hacked the Tulane stream and put it on his YouTube Channel for all to see for free. That could easily be tracked down and action taken for copyright infringement (assuming the broadcast was copyrighted!) Why would an LSU fan do that? LSU lost in an ugly manner.

I'd still invite Alabama, which is going to recruit greater New Orleans with or without a presence at a Tulane camp. And it would sure as $hit piss off LSU.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

Might be time to reconsider these LSU/Tulane football camps. LSU has camps all over the state offering locals chances to be seen by the LSU staff. I'd imagine if we partnered with a Michigan or Texas A&M more locals would show up to Yulman as they would get exposure that they did not ordinarily rec...

Re: Tulane Athletics ranked tied for last in NCAA

The way they created the rankings, go zero for three getting Football, men's and women's Basketball into post season and you lay an egg. We're tied with the few other schools that did the same. Baseball might be our "wildcard" sport, but the baseball team matched the other teams' mediocrity (being k...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

Bring in the National Champs for a weekend every year. I'm sure they'd love to travel to Dixie in February, as the weather isn't very good up there in Oregon that time of year.

If this is on Dannen, everyone needs to bombard him with emails complaining about ruining the longest rivalry Tulane has.

Yes he is. we took a chance on him as his academic issues were known. The staff felt he was that good that they could take this risk.
If they really want him after JUCO, they better coach him on what classes will and will not be accepted.

Most of the coaches agents just used the Texas opening to get a raise. Paul Mainieri one of those. Easy money.
Not saying it wasn't a ploy to get a richer contract, but Mainieri went to Austin and interviewed for the job, according to one of the articles (linked) in this thread.

I was well aware of the other names thrown about, and followed it because I didn't want Tulane to lose Coach Pierce.
