Re: At what point do you fire an athletic director? Serious.

He should have been fired the first time he publicly stated that we don't judge by wins and losses. Can you imagine an AD saying that any other school and keeping their job another day much less years.

Baseball-Future not bright

We have now gone 4 years w/out post season play and 5 of the last 6. We don't lose a large quantity of players this year but we lose a lot of quality. We lose the heart of the order and a lot of pop from Schaf,Schnee and even pop from Florio. Then we lose our closer. We could lose more in the draft ...

Re: 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament: And the answer is NO!

Everything in this program is done Rick's way and the schedule was done at his direction. Also not buying that it's all done 3 years out. It's not done that way in basketball as we well know. Maybe the bama series was scheduled 3 years ago but not all of our schedule was done by Cressend.

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

Mcdonald said SOS mattered after the selections. Then THE CHAIRMEN OF THE COMMITTEE SAID THAT THE THING THAT MATTERED THE MOST WAS THE STRENGTH OF OOC SCHEDULE. ThERE IT IS. Even if we bet umbc it wouldn't have made any difference. NONE. We weren't even in the conversation b/c of our schedule. BIG ...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

The point is we shouldn't be playing such downtrodden teams and if we didn't play them there wouldn't be such a dramatic drop in RPI when you lose one. THE SCHEDULE MATTERS. DEAL W/IT AND STOP BEING AN ENABLER.

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

This is once again, not an attempt to defend the schedule because it could should be better. But, how about an Alabama team that was sched 3yrs ago when they were a world series team but this year they suck. Those things all come together to hurt you. How do you explain Southeastern's rpi? Is it th...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

You won't admit it but you are dodging the schedule. Our win total is grossly inflated by our extremely weak schedule hence the 60 or worse RPI. Our team stats that put us above a lot of teams are also grossly inflated. Our numbers were clearly down in the conference and let's face it the conference...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

It ain't over till the committee says it's over. (But I do expect them to say it's over. I've been a realist long before the term became popular....

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

IF there is any chance of a miracle we need to be Oklahoma and Cal-Fullerton fans today. We know the baseball committee is not on the up and up and we know ECU's guy is on the committee. If those teams win and they put ECU in they may not want to draw scrutiny for the future and therefore pick us. N...

Re: Farewell.

I understand the frustration w/Tulane athletics but getting upset w/the fans is misdirecting one's anger.We put a lot of time and money into supporting Tulane athletics and we expect a return on our investment. Sports is about WINNING and Tulane hasn't delivered on that for the most part of over 60 ...

Re: Big East media rights negotiations going poorly?

I agree Aj, it would be hard and risky to do, that's what I said it would take balls. The scheduling would be an issue for sure, especially down the stretch when everyone is playing in conference. One of the arguments against doing this has always been we'd have to schedule sub par opponents down t...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

The real question is if we get to the title game and lose to Memphis who is going to demand an apology from the team 1st? Let's hope we don't need one after today. I don't think we will. This is a bad team and we have everything to play for. Everything is set up nice w/Memphis being in b/c they don...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

WTG WAVE ! Couldn't realistically ask for more from Byo. Schneeberger continues to impress in the outfield thus improving his draft stock. He should have been first team all conference. Reminds one of Bogusevic. Big guy who can run and gun.

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

Some have questioned how to get the game on all-access if they only have the regular package. I would suggest just adding the XXL package for one month. If you have the monthly plan it will just cost 5 bucks. Then cancel it one the tourney is over.

Re: CB Ronnie Vinson transferring here from LSU? *** UPDATE

I agree that it has to do w/CJ's evaluation of him as a player. CJ has a keen eye for talent. He's stocking this position and has few scholarships available again next year. He wants to use them on his players that will contribute for 4 years. The rumors otherwise don't measure up and are hurtful to...

Re: CUSA TOURNAMENT

The bracket couldn't set up better for us. ECU is not that good and they have a high RPI so beating them is very doable and raises the RPI. UAB isn't as horrible as they used to be but they are still just UAB. UCF has been faltering down the stretch but still has a high RPI so we again get to raise ...
