Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Iona HC. Pretty impressive creds at Iona: https://icgaels.com/coaches.aspx?rc=850&path=mbball Coach Cluess could be a steal for TU. His team takes on No.1 seed NC tonight. I suggested Cluess 3 years ago. A local kid from my hometown was his point guard at the time. Having thought about it in the in...

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

As I stated earlier CBS is being pushed to the curb here by ESPN and is going to get very little content form the AAC. so right now the number is actually under $7 million a school. The additional CBS dollars will likely only bring it up to $7 million or just a little more. I hope your right that i...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

James Jones (Yale) is available now. Just saying. He was pretty much the top name from 3 years ago. I'm not interested in James Jones. He has a career record (all at Yale) of 310-276. He has no known exposure to the South (recruiting). About the only box his name checks is that he's had moderate su...

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

This is a pretty good article about Coaches that would welcome a step up. In some cases, they've already coached at a higher level. I particularly like Musselman, Oates and Odum.

Re: Great Fear The Wave Interview with OC Will Hall

In addition to his gaffe on the kicking game he also said more than once that we are young. That is not the case especially on offense. Field goal kicking has been wanting; the rest of the kicking game has been pretty good. Even at that, I don't think Fritz likes to kick FGs anyway (which is perhap...

If we were going to sign Langton we would have. Even MD had moved on.
He signed in November, during the early signing period.

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

I would be lying if I said that I didn't secretly hope for at least $10M per team. Even though the AAC isn't a heavy hitter in terms of brands, the value is there for the extra ~$3M in terms of both MBB and FB. Basically, I'm disappointed even with the 4x increase. EDIT: Also, it allows ESPN to ter...

Re: Samir going pro

He will play in Europe, I'm sure. He's not close to the talent that Reynolds or Frazier have, and they can barely find minutes in the NBA. I wish him the best, and appreciate that he played his heart out while at Tulane.

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

Exactly!

There's going to by 10000x more people with the ESPN3 App than we have as Tulane fans. They will all have access to all AAC content. At $5/month, and it giving you access to the other ESPN outlets , it's a bargain for the cable cutters.
