Re: USL Fan Forum Site

And I would think that proves, beyond a doubt unless someone can provide documents to the contrary, that we are still, 129 years later, the University of Louisiana . So in effect, ULL IS trying to hijack our legally given name. Maybe ex-flash, or whomever that ULL fan poster over here is, needs to ...

Re: THE BOWL DEAL

LSU's business school is ranked ahead of TU's now and from my experiences with LSU engineers I feel LSU's electrical engineering program was on par with TU's.

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...

Re: Tulane's 1973 14-0 win over LSU rated 9th greatest momen

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. I realize that that's what a lot of people say, but think about this: even if you're someone to whom the TU-LSU rivalry means a lot why wouldn't you think of th...

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.

Re: Bill Goldring Land Donation

Tulane has to find a spot to relocate the sports that are being displaced by the POSS. This property seems to offer the best opportunity for that. Seems to be a good location for those minor women's sports and men's track. With all that space on game days Tulane will probably use it as a shuttle si...

Am I missing something? If TU has this land, which apparently is enough to build a large athletic complex, with Tennis, track, etc. why not build a non-landlocked football stadium on it, where we can build (and expand) it to our own specs?

Re: Official Curtis Johnson Assistant Coach/Staff Thread

Tulane football hasn't had world talent since the 1930s. The coaches who have won at TU got the most out of the talent on the roster and had schemes that fit TU. Scelfo wasted so much talent, as did Davis and Teevens. Toledo also did little with the talent he recruited, largely because he didn't ada...
