Re: Seat Licenses

Tulane is in a tough spot here. Nobody wants to pay more and Tulane would rather not have to do it. The problem it’s faced with is that there’s a need to somehow replace the Yulman stadium pledges that are soon to be rolling off. To compete with the other AAC schools and to become attractive to a P5...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

To add insult to injury an LSU fan hacked the Tulane stream and put it on his YouTube Channel for all to see for free. That could easily be tracked down and action taken for copyright infringement (assuming the broadcast was copyrighted!) Why would an LSU fan do that? LSU lost in an ugly manner. I ...

I am sure we made very little from streaming the game and now lose out on a huge guaranteed gate. TD got schooled on this one.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

So what is the WPC payout for TU for those with inside info? The Shrine is 2x the size of Turchin plus parking plus concessions plus boxes plus tv. It’s LSU’s home game. Most if not all of the proceeds go to the WP Foundation. Mostly likely all we get is our expenses covered. Donated back to LSU in...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

So he's had since 2008 and didn't do it until TD's horrific decision. Sorry but this isn't about is being competitive. Or you can say, he didn't do it until we started beating them. Perspective. Not about perspective. It's about reality. We have had other periods of beating them and the series wasn...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

I agree that we shouldn't do it at the WPC. That is just like playing them in BR. When we hosted our game against them there it was great. It's set up perfectly for tailgating and we had the majority of the crowd as we were the home team and controlled the ticket distribution. Now we will get a sma...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

I think if you look at the difference between Fritz's 1st class and 2nd, he's obviously gaining more of a foothold in Louisiana as he becomes more familiar with it. LSU is going to see every kid in this state that wants LSU to see them. That does not hold true for Texas Am, Michigan, or whoever. It...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

This is a thoughtful response and makes a valid point in regard to bringing in competition, but, at the same time, it ignores the fact that 17/25 of the commits in Tulane's best class in recent memory (2018) were from outside of Louisiana, and, not only that, but the majority of commits in that cla...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

We are not beating LSU out for kids anytime soon. Pairing with LSU brings more kids to the camp locally than any other pairing we could have. Many of those kids are not quite good enough to get a scholarship from LSU but believe they are or want to see if they can impress LSU at the camp. This give...

Wally P Sr was a neighbor of Rick Jones. He would always ask Rick to play in the Wally P Classic.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

The way to solve this is to propose playing them in a weekend series home and home after Alleva is fired. I’d even do a 2 for 1. Or you could play one in BR, 1 at Turchin and 1 at the Shrine. It would be a huge money maker and a big win for the fans. That could be only possible if we started winnin...

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

Good point!
I’m extremely disappointed. It was the one game on the schedule you knew we’d have a big time home atmosphere with a longtime rival with solid media coverage, tailgating and overall fun. Now that’s gone.

Re: Tulane/LSU baseball series

TPS is almost always accurate, and if that story is accurate it is a disgrace. I seriously doubt the revenue made from the stream is more than what Cox would have given us. Even if it did, why risk the possibility of the greatest college baseball rivalry? This move hurts the fans and hurts the base...
