Re: 2019 Tulane Football Regular Season Win Prediction

6 regular season wins with a possible bowl win depending on the opponent. I reserve the ability to revisit this after the FIU game, as that game should serve as a barometer for what to expect.

Re: Tulane/LSU FB Camp 2019

I don’t like the idea of camping with LSU, but I have to trust Fritz’ judgement on whether it’s a net plus or minus for Tulane. I think this is the third such camp, and we have to admit that the two previous recruiting classes were quite good. 2018 was a very strong class, 2019 not far behind the 2...

Re: The PAC 12 needs your donation

Even though it is true that the state of Louisiana doesn't care about education (or healthcare), Bobby Jindal destroyed the state of Louisiana and LSU, and it honestly seems unlikely that either will ever truly recover.

Re: The PAC 12 needs your donation

The problem with the PAC 12 is its western geographic location, isolated from most of the U.S. viewing audience. There are a lot of people on the west coast, but I don't think they watch the tube that much (too many other things to do). On top of that, the PAC 12's isolation doesn't give them a lot...

The PAC 12 can survive as long as it is the exclusive west coast P5 conference, but it try to merge with the Big 12 again in order to remain relevant.

Re: Tulane/LSU FB Camp on May 26, 2019

https://wgno.com/2019/05/26/tulane-and-lsu-host-joint-football-camp/ If Lousiana is so loaded with talent, why is 50 percent of LSU's roster, the Flagship U of the state, made up of kids not from Louisiana ? Probably because they only want the 4-5 star recruits. Not enough per capita here I suppose...

Re: ESPN subscriber collapse

ESPN was going to lose subscribers anyway, and I am personally of the opinion that trying to target politics in an effort to stem the tide really will not make much of a difference.

The ship has pretty much sailed on traditional tv packages.

Re: The Academic, or lack of, progress numbers

Very understandable that our "trend" could be downward--much more challenging to stay in school at Tulane. That, combined with our hopeful improvement on the field, will likely lower our APR trend. Of course the APR is as relevant as ranking each school's engineering, poli sci, or anthropology majo...

Re: Tulane FB “a program to watch”

It's a lot more than 9 homes. You'd have to buy that entire portion of Uptown as neighbors throughout the area fought it. You'd be doing all of that to add a whopping 3,00 seats on the west side. Expansion is not possible on the south end as the stadium is presses right up against Reilly. On the no...

Re: Tulane FB “a program to watch”

The 9 homes behind the stadium on Audubon Blvd. would (likely) have an average selling price in the $1m-$2.5M range. The issue with trying to buy them is that it's simply not worth selling those properties, as the properties in that section of Audubon Blvd, like the properties on Audubon Pl., that b...

Simple solution. Build our programs and our brand to a level where we earn an invite to the Big 12. Then LSU would have no excuse to not play us. You mean like Texas refuses to play Texas A&?

We just need to stop hiring first time head coaches when it comes to our big 3 sports. The AAC is just too tough for a school like Tulane to hire an unproven guy.
