Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

You really can’t make up the stupidity of Tulane athletics over the years.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

Combined with the lack of success of his coaching hires, are we seeing the beginning of the end of Troy Dannen? I then ask the follow up question, “In this NCAA environment and lack of fan base, is it even possible for Tulane athletics to be successful?”

Re: Tulane Athletics ranked tied for last in NCAA

C’mon gang, is this a surprise. Add in the lack of fan base and we are probably near the bottom of those bottom teams in overall health of the program.

Re: Graff mentioned in 5 possible candidates for Saints PBP job

IMHO, IT's got to be Kelly. Right balance between good play by play and enthusiasm (homerism.) Can't be Streif doing play by play. Too hard with no experience. Joel Myers too bland for me.

This one (Graff) belongs to the Wave!

Re: Thoughts and Prayers Requested

I think I can speak for most of us in saying "Thank YOU" for considering us part of your extended family in asking us to join in Zach's journey. Truly a privilege to play even a small part of his road to full recovery. Continued prayers to your entire family.

One can only dream but I would love to see Goat, Latham & AC running our program.
That would be awesome, I'm sure we'd be competing at minimum for a regional most years.
Still tough to recruit at Tulane due to high tuition and academics. Miss St can literally take anybody.

Re: AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

While you too argue over who's right and who's wrong, Tulane cashed another AAC check despite horrible results and as bad an overall athletic program in terms of funding, fan interest, brand and winning, as there is in the country. I continue to be embarrassed to wear my Tulane gear in public. Hey g...

Re: Fritz Contract extension to 2023

I guess Dannen needs a history lesson. Bennie Ellender got a 10 year extension once and was fired two years later. Tulane was on the hook for 8 years. Funny thing was Tulane kept sending him a check for years after he was paid off. No one at Tulane thought to investigate. True story. Only at Tulane...

Re: Andy Cannizaro

I ask again, moving forward, would anyone put $10,000 annually on Tulane making the NCAAs regardless of who the coach is? Or would you take the bet on not making the NCAAs?
I'd like to be wrong on this but I would have to bet the No postseason option.

Re: Volleyball 2018

Can't believe how exciting it is to have a chance to have a pretty good volleyball team. Not trying to belittle the women or their sport (i have a daughter who played volleyball) but until Tulane gets the big sports right this is not going to move the donations needle for me.

Re: Schloss on financial aid

Unless the scholarship rules change, we won’t see high tuition private schools competing for championships very often. Has nothing to do with coaching. Few parents will pay the difference in tuition between the privates and public universities.
