Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

I guess Dannen needs a history lesson. Bennie Ellender got a 10 year extension once and was fired two years later. Tulane was on the hook for 8 years. Funny thing was Tulane kept sending him a check for years after he was paid off. No one at Tulane thought to investigate. Sounds like Cowen. He's st...

Re: AAC Tourney

Thanks, Steve. Great shot! The hourly forecast on weather.com says there's only a 15% chance of rain between now and 5 PM EST, then it goes to 35% at 5 PM and 50% at 6. Let's hope we can get the lion's share of the game in without interruption. If there is another delay mid game, let's remember that...

Re: Volleyball 2018

Again you are wrong in your strange quest to belittle the sport volleyball. WBB averaged 1,538 fans a game. WVB averaged 1,145. Ahead of those other sports you mentioned. Also, what I'm pointing out is the trend over the last 5 years. VB attendance is growing the fastest and will pass up WBB within...

Re: Volleyball 2018

“Having a thread on the board does not make Women's Volleyball "the top female sport being played by female athletes". Women's basketball, and I'd argue softball, soccer, lacrosse and ice hockey are all played by more women athletes,” So I proved to you that you were completely wrong. That volleyba...

Re: New Assistant Basketball Coach

It wasn't announced with a press release, but this was announced either the day the assistant left for GaTech or the day after. It came from Dunleavy and Tulane. It was WAY more officially announced than any potential Willie Fritz extension. This was a great hire, but it was also an internal hire as...

Wow, 100,000 waiting for Saints tickets? I can remember the days of being able to get into a Saints game as easily as a Tulane game.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

Re: Fritz on verge of extension

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