Re: Ade

Saw it, too. Terrible news. I love that kid. He cost himself some money moving inside his senior year but he did it for his team. Praying it’s not serious, but it looked bad.

Re: OSU Coach on Leave

No way he gets suspended for lying to media. He simply says I was protecting privacy and didn’t know what he could say legally. If lying to the media becomes a suspendable affair, not many coaches will avoid suspensions!

Re: Tanner Lee

From Jags beat writer:
“I hate to continue to diminish the play of a guy who is in his first NFL camp, but Tanner Lee may be as bad a pick in the draft as they’ve ever had. I wish him the best, but the Jaguars really should’ve brought in stiffer competition for Kessler because Lee isn’t it.”

Re: OSU Coach on Leave

Everyone get on your knees and pray that Urban survives this and stays at OSU, otherwise, assuming he did report the incident in 2015, he will remain very hireable which might mean the next coach at lsu. He's not only a great coach, but he is an utterly disgusting human being and you can't imagine h...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

The reason why Dannen won’t jump on the UCF national championship bandwagon is the same reason no non P5 AD would back it, they aspire to get a P5 high paying gig and therefore don’t want to piss off the P5 schools. What was absolute BS is the former UCF coach Frost not fully endorsing it.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
