Re: Schloss on financial aid

But if you have an AD that supports your baseball program to the extent that TCU's former AD did, guess what? They "FIND A WAY" to make it happen. What's changed is the AD, not the rules.

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

Just for $hits and giggles, I thought I'd give a shot at handicapping the schedule. Keep in mind these predictions are out the window by the 3rd of 4th week of the season. But I don't agree with the S&P analysis so I'll give it a shot. You can make fun of me at the end of the season, b/c I'm putting...

Steve, I too thank you for all you do for this great forum.

Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

Tim, I would email those notes to Dannen. He probably has no idea that the Baseball series with LSU has generated so much revenue in the past, so he's not thinking about ways to maximize the value of those games for both teams. If both teams do well with innovative thinking such as Rick Jones showed...

Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

I think most would disagree with your take. This is Tulane v. LSU. It's always a meaningful game. A lot of our disengaged fans will tune in. Then throw in the fact thar it may cost us the series in the future and it's a big deal. It's baseball. Yes, there's a very passionate group of maybe 2k fans ...

Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

In the big scheme of things, this is not nearly as big a deal as it's being turned into in this thread. This isn't Cowen going behind Sandy Barbour's back and hiring Scelfo, or some of the other bone-headed faux pas that continue to haunt Tulane fans. Yes, it's shooting ourselves in the foot once ag...

Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

There you have it. I still feel strongly that Dannen is a HUGE step up from his predecessor, but at the same time he needs to get the message that exposure is like advertising. Even if we got ZERO money from the TV coverage, it's free exposure, which our programs so desperately need. We might have m...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

I agree that it’s not gospel, but that analysis has been pretty close over the last couple of seasons, as it predicted 5-7 for 2017 (accurate) and 3-8 in 2016 (off by 1 win). Hopefully, it will be off by 1 win again with its 5-7 prediction for 2018, but it’s hard to feel the same level of enthusias...

This one is particularly dated, as it pre-dates Junior Diaz transferring. Or it's just lousy reporting.

So open the part with the best view is my point. There wasn’t a lot of staffing there. Plus you if you’re going to do it do it right. Hopefully in the future the game will be scheduled for Saturday night at 7. I agree Saturday night at 7. And it should always coincide with FQF! So you would have ha...

On top of that he won't let fans sit upstairs at these events. I get his not wanting to give any advantage to his opponent but with our situation with regards to not having anybody left coming to the games it seems like things need to be balanced out.
