“So financially, BYU would do better to remain independent.”

If he truly runs a 4.34 forty, not sure we’ll get him on the dotted line.

Re: How did you become a Tulane fan?

My dad went to Ole Miss so I grew up in late 50s early 60s as a Rebel diehard. So my deep hatred of LSU was ingrained in me. Did go to many "Cub Scout" Tulane games, so always pulled for them to upset LSU. Got lucky enough to get NROTC scholarship out of HS in 1970 and wanted to stay home so picked ...

Congrats to Todd. Well deserved. He was to me the single most exciting thing about Tulane athletics. So I’m bummed.

Re: Baseball Coaching Search

Why is everybody so excited about the method in the last two hires. Hunter hasn’t done a thing yet and Fitz is to be applauded for the bowl season but jeez it took a last play 2 point conversion to beat a bad navy team. I do think Fitz will continue to do a good job, notvas optimistic on Hunter.

Re: TD Fire TJ

He needs to be fired but don’t expect much in the way of a new hire. No good coach is going to take this job with its challenges. Can’t recruit here. Any coach we see hired will be one who was on nobody else’s radar. Gautreau is in line for an eventual much better job than Tulane. We are a coach kil...

Re: Bylaw 14.5.5.2.9 - and how it will affect Tulane Baseball

If anything, this may help Tulane. Jones made a living getting transfers who weren’t happy where they were. Now back then they probably had scholarships so would be ineligible to transfer but to me it can’t hurt.

Re: Ranking the Basketball programs in AAC

IMHO, that survey is hard to argue against. Tulane athletics as a hole is abysmal at this time. Only a gargantuan investment in resources can change this fact. The problem is that with no shot at a P5 invitation, even I, a die-hard fan since 1970 and an alumnus since 1973, would probably agree that ...

Re: The Academic, or lack of, progress numbers

This is totally disgusting to me. So now we are losing with below avg athletes and students. We are a joke of an athletic program. Can we at least pick a lane either good athletes or good students and stick to it. Losing on the field and classroom with poor talent and academic ability is a complete ...

Simple solution. Build our programs and our brand to a level where we earn an invite to the Big 12. Then LSU would have no excuse to not play us.

Are you saying no benefit for them to play us or vice versus? They don’t run the option with all that cut blocking anymore. Johnson retired.

Not in the state of Louisiana it won't. Playing LSU regularly, win or lose, gives in state fans that don't like LSU a reason to root for Tulane regardless of the outcome. And there is a percentage of in-state football fans that are turned off by LSU looking for a reason to root for Tulane. It's tha...

I offered to put my money where my mouth was back then when rules changed and had no takers. Willing to bet anybody going forward that Tulane will not make regionals annually. I lose the bet if they do, I win if they don’t. We’ve made it once since the rule changed.

This is because Rick Jones strategy of bringing in immediately eligible transfer pitchers and using selective full scholarships ...
