Re: Kansas fires it’s AD

This could get hairy for Tulane and Willie Fritz. As Golfnut points out, it's unlikely that the new AD hires a coach that's in his mid 50's, runs a gimmicky offense, and hasn't won at the AAC level (yet.). Then again, I doubt the new AD fires the football coach between now and the start of the seas...

Re: The Never Ending Gift of Cowen

I would bet if we had a successful football program ranked in the top 20 consistently our fundraising efforts would increase at least 3 fold. Of course, but that's not realistically possible from a G5 for the same reason that Fuente, Herman, Rhule, Morris, Taggart and Frost are no longer coaches in...

Re: The Never Ending Gift of Cowen

During most of the periods listed, BC and TCU were in P5s. Further, TCU primarily recruits locally (TX) and BC primarily recruits regionally (MA/NY/CT/PA/NH), unlike Tulane. For context, in Fall 2017, ~22% of Tulane's total undergraduate newcomb-tulane enrollment came from the South Central region (...

Re: The Never Ending Gift of Cowen

The issue is that it's not as simple as it is being made out to be as there are variables that the study does not consider. For example: 1. Does whether or not a university meets 100% of demonstrated need impact enrollment gains? 2. What is the impact on enrollment of winning a power conference (P5+...

Re: Schloss on financial aid

But if you have an AD that supports your baseball program to the extent that TCU's former AD did, guess what? They "FIND A WAY" to make it happen. What's changed is the AD, not the rules. It's more complicated than that and we all know it. Relevant issues at play for Tulane: 1. 11.7 Scholarship lim...

Re: Schloss on financial aid

Unless the scholarship rules change, we won’t see high tuition private schools competing for championships very often. Has nothing to do with coaching. Few parents will pay the difference in tuition between the privates and public universities. TCU and Vandy compete for national championships prett...

Re: Lindsey Scott to be a Tiger again :(

Well, as an update, Scott was subpar in the Missouri spring game, as it was so bad that he may not win the back up spot and it also doesn't help him that Missouri has a bunch of QBs. He went 1/8 for 11 yards with 2 INTS. https://www.columbiamissourian.com/sports/mizzou_football/poor-performance-from...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

It’s hard not to at least be a little disappointed that in year 3 of Fritz, Tulane has greater than 50% chance of winning only 1 of its 12 games using one set of advanced metrics. It’s also disappointing that, in year 3, a 6-7 record would be something to truly celebrate. Granted, if Tulane has a b...

Re: Tulane Football Camp end of May

We can thank Ed Orgeron for his participation in our camp. They'll be kids coming in far and wide that otherwise would not have. I hope LSU football prospers under their current staff who sees value in directing talent (particularly in-state), towards us rather than their SEC and Big 12 rivals. Let...
