Re: Volleyball 2018

7.75 Million people attended women's D1 basketball games in 2017-18. The figures I found for D1 volleyball (admittedly are 2016-17) show that just barely over 2 million watched D1 women's volleyball.. http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/w_volleyball_RB/2017/Attend.pdf http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/w_baske...

Re: Kansas fires it’s AD

This could get hairy for Tulane and Willie Fritz. As Golfnut points out, it's unlikely that the new AD hires a coach that's in his mid 50's, runs a gimmicky offense, and hasn't won at the AAC level (yet.). Then again, I doubt the new AD fires the football coach between now and the start of the seas...

Re: David Pierce

And, regardless of how many were or were not drafted, with that many upperclassmen on a team that went to a regional the year before, they should have been much better, with a chance to host, in 2017. Jewett even stated, multiple times, before the 2017 season started that he couldn't believe he inhe...

Re: David Pierce

The 2017 team was a VETERAN, UPPERCLASSMAN DOMINATED team that had been to the NCAA tournament two years in a row. To suggest it was a lousy team that lacked talent belies the facts that you went to the games the two years prior and all of 2017. This coaching staff managed to get about as little out...

Re: Volleyball 2018

Can't believe how exciting it is to have a chance to have a pretty good volleyball team. Not trying to belittle the women or their sport (i have a daughter who played volleyball) but until Tulane gets the big sports right this is not going to move the donations needle for me. Thanks for taking time...

Re: David Pierce

My point was he knew his streak was coming to an end here . I didn't say it was the only reason. Yes he was the 12th choice. He is a good coach. He can also recruit there. He had never dealt with the tuition issue as a HC and he did a poor job of recruiting here. bullsh*t he knew it was coming to a...

Re: David Pierce

Although he wasn't UT's first choice, he wasn't #12 either. C'.mon man.

He did a GREAT job at Tulane (and followed a legendary Coach Jones) and got one of the best gigs for a college baseball coach as a result. We'd be lucky as hell to have another David Pierce as our next baseball coach.

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

He's a definite 1st rounder after the combine. He's a perfect fit for teams drafting late in the 1st who just want a guy to play 15-20 minutes, be a versatile defender and hit the occasional 3. Love to see him in Celtics uniform, Stevens would get the best out of his defensive abilities. I totally ...

If he signed an extension the University would announce it. Until they do so, it's a rumor, or hearsay.

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

Very happy he's having a great Combine and hope this leads to him getting chosen in the first round. The highlights, against pretty damned good competition, were awesome. I'm also glad to see he cut his hair. The dreadlocks pushed into Mickey Mouse ears whenever he played in Orlando were silly.

Re: Bought Short

I've heard of selling short, but never "bought short". I've also known of buying to cover a short sale, but that's something entirely different. We're getting $1.5 million to get clobbered in Columbus. Take the check and hope we get out of the game injury free.
