Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

I wonder if this windfall affected the financial decision to fire Coach Dunleavy and absorb several million dollars of his remaining contract.

Re: Apology Owed To Gbgreenie

gbGreenie is a real person and a genuine Tulane fan. I see him at the basketball games on his feet and cheering loudly. He's just a bit...uhhh...underdeveloped in the social skills department. I enjoy his Facebook posts a great deal...particularly those about politics. I'll buy the first beer for an...

Re: Dunleavy GONE

P.S. To my ex wife: Did you really mean it when you told me you loved me immediately before you filed for divorce? If so, why?

P.P.S. To Troy Dannen: Did you really mean it when we were winless at midseason and you promised Dunleavy's return with "100% assurance"? If so, why?

Re: Dunleavy GONE

There are times in your life and career when you realize that there is ONLY one choice. Examples might be 1)if your hair were to spontaneously combust and 2)when you realize you have hired the worst coach in American college basketball. Even though there was no choice to be made, I thank Troy Dannen...

Re: 2018-19 AAC Basketball Predictions

Someone predicted 0 wins in conference play but I think that was made well after the start of the season. One optimist (gbgreenie?) predicted 13-14 wins.

The big winner is IM42Lane who was on record with a prediction of two wins.

Amazing quote: “There isn’t any question it’s not meeting anyone’s expectations,” Dannen told Fox 8 television in February. “If it’s meeting someone’s expectations, then that person needs expectations that are significantly higher, because mine are. For me, if we’re not in the top half of the leagu...

I could not summon the energy to go to the game. It was one of only 2-3 games in the last several years that I did not attend. What's the point?

Re: Dunleavy Dumpster fire continues Wave falls to win less Alabama A&M 67-59

I maintain that the obvious short-term (and potentially long-term) solution is to give Coach Dunleavy a different title that has nothing to do with the daily management of the basketball program and promote Doug Stewart immediately. The players like him. He has a reputation as a great recruiter. The...

Tulane shooting 56% from the 3. It will take hot shooting like this to keep us in the lead. Tulane up by 19-3 a few minutes ago...now it's 31-27 with four minutes left in the half.
