Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Not sure the type of recruit Avery Johnson wins with can be signed by or stay in school at Tulane.
I am really torn about whether we can ever accomplish the vision of more athletic team vs going to a coach with a good scheme who doesn’t need the big time athletic guys.

Re: UCSB Series

When your tuition is $60,000 per year and you can only give partial schollies, you’re never going to have depth in pitching. You might not be able to sign really good ones to begin with and you’re certainly not going to keep those who aren’t very good long enough to develop them. Their parents won’...

Re: Troy Dannen

At this point we have lost two generations and working on a third. At this point it's the W's and L's stupid I disagree to a certain extent. Even if we win 8 games a year for 5 years we won’t fill Yulman. The general public is not interested in the AAC schedule, nor most of the out of conference ga...

Re: Tulane Beats Nicholls St. 7-4

That guy had to be biased to call that one. He was positioned perfectly to see the inside pitch. Sometimes umps just want to show off their punch out gesture.

Re: Troy Dannen

I don’t know why you guys keep blaming all these ADs and coaches. This has been going on 60 years. What is hard to admit is the problem has been, is and will continue to be a lack of will by the university to fully commit to athletics. To a lesser extent the whole segregation between P5 and G5 proba...

Re: SMU Beats Tulane 85-75

Played our best conference game of the year and still loss by 10 to a bad SMU team with a 9 man roster. SMU was down to 7 players at the end with foul outs and injuries and stretched the lead. Not sure there will be a better opportunity to win a road game. Both ECU and WS are winless on the road. W...

Gbgreenie is a damn propagandist at this point.

Whoever said it takes 6 years to build a program should check out what the coach at LSU is doing or hell any other good program for that matter. It doesn’t take 6 years
Cmon, we all know how the LSU coach is buying..,,,I mean building that program.

Re: Tulane vs North Texas Future FB

The problem with North Texas is that they are too competitive. Not sure wins by any means. Couldn’t they get lesser program to play at Tulane twice or 2 for 1 like we have to do with P5 schools? I guess the answer is no.

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

I quit blaming coaches for the ineptness a long time ago. Tulane has to be as difficult a place to recruit basketball players as any in the country when all factors are taken into account: academics, fan base, record, tradition, and history of terrible results. Seriously, there are 200 schools in th...

Daniels only player with Div I starting talent. A couple of other guys could be role players on better teams but most of them lack the footwork and/or athleticism to be starting anywhere in Div I.

Re: Football Recruiting -- 2019

Just watched 247 highlights on Caleb Thomas. Has the body to play inside on the DL with some good moves to get penetration and a low center of gravity to play stoutly at the point of attack. Doesn’t appear to have the foot speed to play on the outside. Get him up to 290 and we have another pretty go...

Re: It's Official-Will Hall New OC

I was a bit surprised by this hire. Based on the advice I was giving WF from my seats at Yullman during the Navy game my wife told me that I should be the OC.
