Re: Do We Keep Jewit

I agree tps- if we cave the rest of this season, Matt Riser is right there and will absolutely take the job at his alma mater. If we don't someone else will. I was surprised and pleased about Dannen's willingness to cut bait on Dunleavy. He has to be seeing the same thing with Jewett. He saw David P...

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

To me the huge difference is how thoroughly Tulane won those games in 1998 and went undefeated, vs squeaking by and going 7-6 in 2013. There is no comparison between those two teams, the post-1998 excitement about TU football was huge and deservedly so.

Re: Tulane Whips ULL 7-3

RPI now 80, SOS 66. RPI help is indeed backloaded, home vs USF 65, UCF 18, UConn 21, road vs ECU 52, Hou 69. Win 70% overall and continue midweek success (currently undefeated) and RPI should be fine.

This morning's way too early RPI at 17. LSU 25, Ole Miss 71 (they also lost a game to Wright St and are 3-2). I was also screaming to walk the .570 hitter from Sec 206, guess coach just couldn't hear me. This year's team simply has it between the ears, you can clearly see it. The pitching & mojo dif...

Re: Guerry Smith

UCF played with a backup freshman QB and therefore struggled. Their starter would've given LSU fits. There is no denying the gaping difference between these 2 QBs.

Re: Ed Daniels

If Tulane wins 7 to 10 games a year thru 2022 and sells 80 to 100% of Yulman during that time, they will be a top expansion candidate for the Big 12. The athletics would match the academics, we are a geographical fit in a recruiting target area for the Big 12. 2023 is when the next round of contract...

Re: Saw this coming when we left the Dome LSU in NOLA

The Dome is for rent, if we want to play a game there we just have to pay the same rent as LSU or ULL. Why would we do that. For other reasons (cancellation of baseball series) we should either collect our $750k or our home football game owed by LSU for cancelling the football series. Also should ca...

Re: “Battle for the Rag” Once a great rivalry

Despite everything above, the fact is Tulane & LSU signed a 10 year home and home for 2006 thru 2015. Skip Bertman saw the wisdom of this, and Tulane bent over backwards on the revenue, giving LSU 40,000 tickets to sell & keep in the Dome while Tulane got $250k to play in BR.
