Re: SMU Game Thread

Glutton for punishment as us diehards are I went. The best that can be said is that they haven't quit. SMU is not bad but they are not that good. Fortunately early on they missed a bunch of what should have been tip ins. I felt then we had a chance. Sehic started battling underneath in the second ha...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Pels clean house of Demps and gang. MD hired as Pels GM Tulane off the hook for his salary. Dunleavy and family stay in NOLA. MD would be an excellent NBA GM convinces AD to stay a Pel. TD goes out and finds the next up & coming coach for the Wave. Everyone wins. How could you wish that on the Pels...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Dannen did not predict Tulane would make the NIT. The statement he made was in the context of questions about the schedule and what he said was that the (weaker) non-conference schedule was reflective of the awareness that the team would, at best, be competing to make the NIT, and that next year th...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Dannen said this was an NIT year for us and next year was an NCAA year. Not gonna happen. He needs to do his job and make a change.

Re: New Year's Message from Troy Dannen

Glad to hear of the weight room renovation but it makes me wonder if the football ops. building is no longer in the cards. It also worries me that it may end up just being a band-aid approach like the squad room and locker room renovations were. Hope it turns out to be the much needed and long over ...

Re: Guerry Smith

There's this thing called postgame success rate: you can read about it at the bottom of this link but more or less it tells you what percentage chance each team would have to win the game based on the stats that occurred. It gives LSU a 99% chance to win that game over UCF based on the stats. https...

Re: Guerry Smith

Simple answer. The winner would be easy to pick but that doesn't equate to domination which is what you claim happened. Like I said stats are for losers. They only stat that counts is the final score and they lost by 8.

Re: Guerry Smith

This game is a perfect example of why they stats are for losers. UCF was not dominated . They lost by 8 and were most certainly in the game. throughout. UCF does what RR taught the world to do- scheme around your deficiencies such as inferior line play.

Re: Cincy Destroys the Wave 93-61

Other than Daniels the freshman and sophomores don't offer much promise of a better future. They just don't. Dannen has to be able to see through that. If not he has to go too.

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

No comparison. Toledo had a career losing record. Alford has been a winner everywhere he's been. The sentiment in this thread is he'd be a very welcome relief compared to what we are getting from Dunleavy. At a minimum you'd hope he could stabilize things enough to make the job more appealing in th...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

I would take Steve Alford's worst seasons over Dunleavy's best! Seriously, we need to make a change and move the basketball program forward. Right now, it's going the wrong direction, with zero sign of turning things around. Alford would be a huge step up. Yep. It will take a move like that to get ...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

There are plenty of sports fans in the Tulane student body, but like their peers at most other elite colleges, they are NFL, NBA and EPL fans (and maybe fans of their home state public flagship college team) - and they have access to those games any time they want via streaming.

The sad thing is, we probably have alums that are capable of being that person, but have no interest whatsoever. I'm sure we have a list of alums that could foot that bill, but have ZERO interest.
