Re: Ed Daniels

Like he said we lack talent. It was a lazy article on his part though as he totally disregarded NCAA rules. You can't give academic scholarships to baseball players, or any athlete for that matter, that aren't available to all students. We also learned last year that you can't stack need based aid ...

Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

Now does Mike Fitts or the Board give Dannen an extension to keep him from going to Kansas? :mrgreen: Why would they? Dannen’s the moron who gave a 5 year extension to a coach with 2 losing seasons. If Kansas is stupid enough to take him, good f**cking riddance. It's a two year extension. He signed...

Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

Kansas will have the money to buy him out if they want him. You can be sure he's aware of the possibilities and didn't get himself boxed in. This. His salary was $1.5M or less and Tulane hasn’t been successful enough to make the demands that Houston did for its coach, so it won’t be anywhere near h...

Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

Contract extended to 2023. :shock: Ridiculous considering 2 losing seasons. Sorry, not sorry.

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: 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...
