Re: UCONN looking to leave AAC for Big East

UConn leaving the AAC is great for the football teams in the conference. They have a dismal football program and hurt the AAC’s brand in this sport. For men’s basketball they have not had a good season for several years now. I would much rather see Tulane play Houston, Memphis, and Cincinatti before...

Re: UCONN looking to leave AAC for Big East

The AAC should stay at eleven teams. No need to add anyone as we can just eliminate the separate divisions and have the two teams with the best conference records play in the AAC championship game.. The ESPN contract will not be impacted in any significant way as Aresco added language to the contrac...

Re: LSU leads the whole lotta cheatin' goin on Alleva out

Is LSU one of the dirtiest programs in Division One athletics? If not it sure seems like they are at least in the top ten.

Re: Graff leaving Tulane for Pels?

This probably means we’re going to get Kenny Trahan or Larry Matson as his replacement. Graff will be missed.

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

Does anyone know Dannen’s philosophy when it comes to football scheduling? I am impressed with USF in that they have future 2 for 1’s scheduled with Alabama, Florida, and Miami. I like how USF has upgraded their schedule. Instead of doing these 1 off buy games like we did with Ohio State last season...

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

Why are we scheduling these one off pay to play away games like we did with Ohio State last season and Auburn this season? We should have scheduled these teams to 2 for 1 deals. The one game in New Orleans might have to be played in the Superdome if these teams won’t agree to play in Yulman. One hom...

Re: TD Fire TJ

Do we know any details of Jewett’s contract with Tulane? I
would guess that he has one year remaining on a four year contract. It would be hard to believe that Dannen gave Jewett one of his crazy six year contracts like he gave to Dunleavy.

Re: Last Annual Camp

LSU does not want us hosting camps with premier out of state programs as they are worried they could lose some top recruits. They threw a major fit several years ago when we were going to host a camp with Michigan. We have leverage on this issue.

Re: Last Annual Camp

Why don’t we use the football camps as leverage when scheduling? If LSU wants these football camps to continue and not have us look out of state then they need to schedule us or instead we will hold football camps with Alabama, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, etc. and have at least a 2 for 1 series where the...

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

We could probably buy Zephyr Field at a nice discount if we wanted to since the minor league team is leaving after this season. Tulane would need to put some money into making repairs and updates to the stadium but it might be worth it we can buy it at the right price.

Re: TD Fire TJ

Loved Gautreau as a player but do not want him as our head coach. We can do much better. Matt Deggs at Sam Houston State would take the Tulane job in a heart beat. Deggs would be a home run hire.

Absolutely pathetic! We really collapsed the latter half of the season and in the conference tournament. There is no reasonable justification to keep Jewett around any longer.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

I would not be surprised if the team has lost all confidence in Jewett at this point. No reason for him to return next year as I have a bad feeling that things will fall completely apart if he stays.

Re: Caleb Daniels transferring to Villanova

Yes the program was in the outhouse under Mike Dunleavy but will be a crown jewel under Ron Hunter. I’m surprised that Daniels did not want to be a part of helping to lead the transformation but wish him nothing but the best at Nova.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

Why does the AAC keep playing the conference tournament in Clearwater in front of a sea of empty seats? Watching the Memphis vs Cincinatti game they can’t have more than 100 people in the stands. The lack of attendance seems to be an issue every year they have the tournament in Clearwater, which has...

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

As I said in a prior post we are going back to Sam Houston State where we got David Pierce from to hire their current head coach Matt Deggs. Deggs would be a home run hire for Tulane as he has done an excellent job with Sam Houston.

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

This program is going to continue to underachieve if Jewett is retained for another year. It would be a wasted year. I hope Troy is ready to bring in the right coach to rebuild the program like he did for basketball.

Re: UCONN Series

I’m not shocked by the dismal attendance numbers. Tulane always has solid attendance in years when we are good enough to make a regional. When we are not a regional worthy team like this year and the previous two before that attendance plummets.

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

What about Matt Deggs from Sam Houston State? A proven head coach who has Sam Houston in first place of the Southland Conference standings most years. I assume Deggs is the coach who took over for David Pierce when Pierce left Sam Houston for Tulane. We need to give this guy a serious look.

An arena the size of UNO’s would be perfect for Tulane. Of course the state of Louisiana paid for Lakefront Arena while we will have to raise all of the funds for a new arena privately.

Hopefully Jewett does not have a six year contract like Dannen gave to Dunleavy as he really should be let go at the end of the season.
