Re: Mike Dunleavy the worst of the worst 100% returning

Dannen just made a bad move in getting behind this guy. He was beginning to be liked at this school, too.

This guy was an AD of the year at Northern Iowa - a good basketball school. I'm amazed that he's standing for this.

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

The PG problem is real, but it is the fault of the HC for not recruiting two Division 1 caliber PGs. The rest of the AAC has AT LEAST two PG options, and this team does not. Dunleavy hung his hat on 2 key players, and with one injured he is now out there looking stupid. I actually hope I'm wrong abo...

Re: President Fitts To The Rescue

It's all an inexact science. If Tulane had beaten the creampuffs and were like 9-12 (1-8 AAC), then Fitts would probably feel no need to shake things up. However, if this team endlessly craters then his hand is forced. This isn't an anonymously bad team. This team is so bad that is makes the school ...

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

These are not opinions. Records speak for themselves. I would say that when Dunleavy was hired, we expected wins. Wins from the result of splash hire recruiting and experienced coaching. I am not saying 30 wins. I am just saying wins. We haven't seen it yet. Basketball turnarounds occur within 2-3 ...

We're a football/baseball type of program now, I guess.

Re: CFN's Pre Spring AAC Rankings by Division

I like how we are well off the bottom of these. It's really amazing how the team turned a corner. The early season issues seemed to be tied to a combination of qb play and weird offensive playcalling. Both of those change in 2019.

8-4 isn't a crazy prediction.

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

It's so bad that it's actually fascinating. I know that this team should be below .500, but it's almost surreal that a team that actually spends as much as we do is this poor. Especially with our coach. I think the worry now is "are my young talents going to be mentally broken after this season?". T...

The good news about possibly losing 23+ games is that you can't put lipstick on the pig. Dannen will have his hand forced in this situation.

Guys this recruiting class will take time to develop, Dunleavy took players from Memphis and UCLA, so you have no knowledge if you criticize his recruiting class. Just like you did Fritz you expect instant development when steps are in place for long term success. You have coaches that have proven ...

Re: Turn on the Fax Machine

This is just too much competence coming from a Tulane athletic program.

Re: Decision time....

The worst part about this season is that they're going to beat Navy by 4 points and then use that as a reason to CHANGE NOTHING.

If they upgrade at OC, then this program can really start to churn some winning records. They aren't far off.

We do not have sufficient talent at qb and wide out to make teams pay for stacking the box. But keep going on about our option while you're at it coach. That'll do wonders. You can win with an option team. The problem is that the playcalling is atrocious. They had UH on the ropes down 14-6 and driv...
