Re: Signing Day Thread 2018

Damien Tate, kid from New Orleans that Fritz has raved about, tweeted today that he is taking the ACT. That would lead me to believe that he is not yet academically qualified. Hope it goes well. Any insight on whether academics are the reason Tate has decided to reopen his recruitment and attend JC...

Re: Melvin Frazier drafted 2nd Round, 5th pick (35th overall)

you think if he had worn jersey #30 or lower he would have gone in the first round? Coincidence that he wore 35 and went 35th? I think not.

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

This will impact recruiting in a major way. That's been debated throughout this thread. I'm not sure it's really going to help, as his strongest point--playing D--is not anything that Dunleavy stresses. Dunleavy did improve his shot dramatically, but I don't know that Melvin going in the first roun...

I don’t know what the hell we can do if they even want to do anything. It’s as big a dumpster fire as baseball right now though. Crabtree or not. What can we do...

Re: Tulane Athletics

I just looked at the remaining baseball schedule and I realistically see us finishing out the regular season 24-31. Jewett will get a 3rd year but will be forced to replace some guys on his staff (pitching coach) most likely. Unless some of these recruits perform much better year 3 will be no diffe...

Re: Basketball Recruiting -- 2017

It's funny how this recruit from Hargrave Academy, that very few outside of me on this board gave any credit to, is now putting us into a "the sky is falling" mode because he may flip to Memphis. Clearly, Penny Hardaway thinks the kid can play. But more importantly, I think Dannen needs to think lo...

Re: Grade Troy Dannen on his job to date at Tulane

I think grading TD on his coaching decisions is tough at this point as he's appeared to be doing a lot of things right but they haven't panned out as hoped or expected. If you look at what he's done in the three majors it's hard to find a lot of fault in his logic. But I believe he'll have some toug...

Basketball SHOULD NOT take years to rebuild.

Seems like Jewett has put together a Little League roster. What's not so funny is I looked at the box score (didn't see the game) this morning and 13 runs (6 unearned) on 8 hits, 9 walks, 2 HBP and thought the same thing. Especially the day after giving up the tying and then winning run on wild pit...
