Re: Tulsa AD, Football, and Basketball coaches accept pay cuts

Wow. Hopefully the new TV contract saves the league from further cuts. Side note: Frank Haith is an Elon Alum. Rick Jones helped him get the job as student manager for the basketball team after being cut trying out for baseball. Similar to Coach Schloss he became a student assistant and then rose u...

Re: Tanner Lee

From Jags beat writer: “I hate to continue to diminish the play of a guy who is in his first NFL camp, but Tanner Lee may be as bad a pick in the draft as they’ve ever had. I wish him the best, but the Jaguars really should’ve brought in stiffer competition for Kessler because Lee isn’t it.” https:...

Re: OSU Coach on Leave

Everyone get on your knees and pray that Urban survives this and stays at OSU, otherwise, assuming he did report the incident in 2015, he will remain very hireable which might mean the next coach at lsu. He's not only a great coach, but he is an utterly disgusting human being and you can't imagine ...

Re: New AAC TV deal

No doubt the total pie that is tv revenue for college football will shrink. But our 1.9m per year will not, because that is an undervalued contract negotiated when the conference was in a precarious situation. Now the question is would twitch/YouTube/sling etc get involved for our primary or our se...

Re: New AAC TV deal

Just for fun speculation: What is the minimum yearly revenue per team we would like to see from our next TV deal ? I think the question boils down to what is the next goal ? Separate from rest of G5 further ? Enough revenue to entice BYU/Boise/SDSU to join ? Enough $$ to protect our teams from havi...

It really all comes down to how many bidders are seriously interested, as it doesn't how much it is worth economically if there are only two organizations at the table bidding on it.

Re: Continuity

I realize that it’s a strong opinion, but, In theory, Tulane should be able to defeat new coach SMU, Navy and UAB at this point even if it loses to Wake Forest, Houston, and Memphis. If Tulane loses to Wake Forest, UAB, Ohio State, Houston, Navy, SMU, and Memphis, that means a non bowl season regard...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

I think if you look at the difference between Fritz's 1st class and 2nd, he's obviously gaining more of a foothold in Louisiana as he becomes more familiar with it. LSU is going to see every kid in this state that wants LSU to see them. That does not hold true for Texas Am, Michigan, or whoever. It...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

We are not beating LSU out for kids anytime soon. Pairing with LSU brings more kids to the camp locally than any other pairing we could have. Many of those kids are not quite good enough to get a scholarship from LSU but believe they are or want to see if they can impress LSU at the camp. This give...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

How does Tulane benefit from camping with LSU over a team that LSU is afraid of getting a foothold in the state of Louisiana? Keeping LSU would make sense if Tulane and LSU were in competition for the same players, but that's just not the case.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

Might be time to reconsider these LSU/Tulane football camps. LSU has camps all over the state offering locals chances to be seen by the LSU staff. I'd imagine if we partnered with a Michigan or Texas A&M more locals would show up to Yulman as they would get exposure that they did not ordinarily rec...

Well, they choose us to finish eighth in the conference but still get to a bowl. The conference only has seven bowl tie-ins so somebody is getting hosed.
If the New Orleans Bowl had a tie in to the AAC, Tulane would be safe. I guess Tulane can't have everything.
