Re: Fritz on verge of extension

The few times I have attended YouKnowWho stadium I felt like I was about to tumble over, all the way to the bottom. With all of the additions they have done I can't imagine it being any better. No wonder that after a few imbibements things often got rough in the old days when there WAS a rivalry.

Re: Fritz on verge of extension

I always wondered why we did not go bowling in 1997. I don't think we (or anyone) should refuse an invite to a bowl game, even if it costs money. Things were definitely different then. If only, if only, if only we had hired RR?????

Re: Willie Fritz to Kansas

I would say that RR has been a disappointment at Arizona. He will never win the PAC and his team is up or down. He probably would do well at Tulane but I don't think we will ever find out.

Re: Cincy Game Thread

From the Larry Smith era, are you speaking of the "tearaway" jerseys? I recall Hontas' tearaway being ripped off; he has to come out for a play; Hightower, his replacement, fumbled and we wind up losing. I can't remember who the opposition was.

Re: Tulane 21 - Army 17

I was there and I marveled that we actually did not come up short. I go back to the Tulane-LSU game when Steve Foley was the QB. With no time outs left we drove down to near the goal line. Our running back was stopped JUST SHORT of the goal line as time ran out. It was the next year that we beat the...

Re: Benson-LSU End Game

I was at the 1949 Tulane-Alabama game in Mobile. I was 11 years old and already become a Tulane Fan. There have been many miserable years but having taught at Tulane for 51-1/2 years I am "stuck" with the Green Wave. I have no regrets.

I have Westfelt season seats and I GLADLY pay the bonus. I consider this a donation that I would have made anyway. I know that the bonus is a big hit for most Tulane fans and I understand the complaints. However, if you are real fans, just keep this negative stuff to yourselves. Write to the Athleti...

Re: Ole Miss Hugh Freeze Resigns..

Eagle, I wonder how much his recruiting was helped by his calls to the young ladies? Not trying to start an argument about Freeze. I agree that he is a good (but not great) coach.

Re: Ole Miss Hugh Freeze Resigns..

You have got to be kidding Eaglewave. Freeze is now, as his name implies, frozen out of NCAA high level coaching. Why would you want such a person at Tulane? His record at Ole Miss was not all that great anyway.

Re: Tulane May 2, 2016 Report of the Senate Committee on Budget Review (SCBR)

It really is boring when two so-called Tulane fans bash each other over issues that have no solution. Tulane has been in a bad way athletically since the late 50's when I became a fan. My take is that we are FINALLY on the right track. I was on the Tulane faculty for 51 years. I was on many senate c...

Re: Baseball can't get here soon enough

What I meant by "a real sport" is that in (especially pro basketball) the play is often above the net. Even the smaller players can dunk. I see nothing sporting in the dunk. The occasional three point shot takes talent but the game has deteriorated (IMHO) to a point not in keeping with the...

Re: Baseball can't get here soon enough

I HATE basketball. It is like ping pong with people. If they would raise the net about 3 feet it might get back to being a true sport. Therefore, I hate this time of year for sports. The only possibly exciting things are if the Saints are in the hunt and Tulane football recruiting (of which lately w...
