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: 2019 /2020 MBB Non Conference Schedule

Have you all seen the new PAC12 OOC requirements? The approved new non-conference scheduling standards include the following elements: (i) a non-Conference five-year trailing average of opponents’ NET ranking must be 175 or less, (ii) no participation in road buy games, (iii) no regular season games...

Re: Wave lands Justin Ibieta QB!!!!

My only concern is that he played in the 2A classification in HS. In contrast, McMillan played in the 6A classification and won a state title there. Quick question. What classification level did Eli and Peyton Manning play in? The defense rests, your honor. no one seem to give a krap the John Curti...

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...

Re: Future OOC Football Schedule/Games

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&? Regardless of what people say, it's really been the other way around for those programs. As for Tulane, it'...

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

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. Find a proven winner at a lower level like Fritz and Hunter. That formula works. It’s not rocket science. I would say no to anyone who i...

Re: Future OOC Football Schedule/Games

Why do the people that argue that LSU gains nothing from playing Tulane in a neutral site Superdome ignore the fact that it still gives them 7 home games and an 8th that's in their backyard, benefiting their large NO based alumni and on preferential terms? This could be broken into two separate pie...

Except it's not A v. B. It's Tulane versus playing a total cream puff. LSU already does B. It's C for cream puff their fans are sick of. That's not getting replaced with another P5. So that's where Tulane fits in. Well, replace the Big 12 team with a random G5 team that only plays LSU at home - Sce...

Re: NFL Draft results by Conference

On an average number of picks per team basis, it looks like the SEC stands lone, the B1G-B12-PAC are together, and then the ACC is the bottom.

It seems about right.

EDIT: It's disappointing that the AAC didn't have more separation from the MAC and the MWC.

You referenced it but obviously don’t realize that it’s proof that good coaches will win here. Every year, it becomes a little harder for coaches to win here - Tulane is too expensive.
