Re: Potential Tulane Baseball Coaching Candidates

Can someone please explain why Gautreau is being given anything other than a courtesy interview? What in the world has he done at Tulane, or elsewhere to warrant serious consideration for this position? He may very well make a great coach one day, but he has done nothing up to this point to deserve ...

Re: Potential Tulane Baseball Coaching Candidates

I heard some disappointing reports re: how practices were conducted after RJ left this season, which would seem to explain the mental lapses this year and cast serious doubt over whether Gautreau would be the right man for the job at this point. Also, I heard an interesting rumor recently that RJ st...

Re: Baseball Preview @ San Francisco Tournament

The bats have gotten consistently worse over the last decade or so. Offensively, we need a spark beyond talent. Look at what has happened with ULL since they hired Matt Deggs away from A&M - batting average rose 60 points in one year. IMHO, Jones deserves to ride into the sunset, but he needs to get...

Re: New President Is Michael Fitts

Put me in the 'wait and see' group. Fitts being a lawyer, one could argue that he carefully chose his words re: D-1 status. Also, I would've preferred a stronger statement regarding athletics - seemed more 'status quo' support, than strong commitment to excellence in athletics. In fact, it almost se...

Re: Tulane 39 - South Alabama 41

Absolutely pathetic. This is on everyone from administration on down. This is a low rent athletic program and that's why these losses routinely happen to TU. It's on the players to play, and I think the L proves they didn't today (you won't convince me USA has more talent). As for coaching, well, yo...

Considering it was termed the single greatest moment in the history of Tulane sports, I doubt there will be another TU moment on the list.

Re: PARKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

agree re: expectations of return on investment.

To me, the 16-0 and 14-1 losses are much more disappointing and indicative of a coaching problem, whereas toeing the .500 line midway through the season (though unusual for this program) would merely suggest a talent problem.
