Re: Big news coming....

LB in a 3-4 and DE in a 4-3 are very similar, especially if you use a zone blitzing scheme.

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

How does the stadium prevent us from becoming Boise? The stadium does nothing to prevent us from that, Boise is on the outside looking in just like us. Here's a question, would u rather be Boise and left out or Wake Forest or Duke and included? Boise was trying to be big time and achieved it,ranked...

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

We should, emphasis on SHOULD, be far better than Boise. They don't have anything close to the recruiting base that's available in Tulane's own backyard. Yeah, but until we string together 5 or 6 winning seasons, gaining national attention, we don't have nearly the exposure to offer recruits that a...

Re: Get Ready To Pay and Spend

You are confusing two issues here. There is current and expected future demand/ticket sales and there is current and expected future capacity. You cannot both "pay and spend" to create the program that will become "big time" as well as build a capital facility based on the current demand, or perenn...

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

I actually have made my peace with that. If you want my honest opinion, I don't think we're ever getting into a major conference. If you want the truth, if rooting for a team in a major conference is something you need I would suggest becoming an LSU fan. I do feel the need to root for a team in a ...

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

Let's define "mid-major". To me, it's a D1, or in football, FBS participant not playing in a FBS conference. Thus, by definition, Tulane has been a mid-major since the mid-60's. Now, I think we all agree that CowDick has let the athletic department go to hell in a handbasket. As MBAWavefan pointed ...

Re: Yulman Stadium Construction Cam

I love seeing pictures of the old Stadium. There was a beautiful painting of the inside of the stadium that was displayed in a shop on B'way when i was an undergrad, and I could never find a copy of it once I could afford it a couple years out of school. I really wish I was born a few years earllier...

They are plying at Cowboy Stadium b/c it's a neutral site game. Yeah, even though Cowboy Stadium is closer to the TCU campus than quite a few college's "home" stadiums. Or maybe they're smoking something with all the extra BCS money they're making in Red Stick: Baton Rouge is 460 miles from Cowboy ...

Re: Saints, Steelers, Jags, Bengals eyeing Griffin

If Montana is better than Griffin, which many have predicted (though I'm not sold, based upon spring practice reviews) this team WILL go bowling in late December. If Griffin gets cut, or makes the practice squad, I'd hope CJ lands him as a graduate assistant if he doesn't sign elsewhere. GO RYAN! Ro...

I feel like this was just covered in the other thread. Cowen did just cling to "the model" and just pulled the rug out from under athletics with the Yulman and Fogelman moves. The article, and the title of this topic, note that universities will have to pay and spend to be included. Yulman and Foge...

Re: Get Ready To Pay and Spend

I doubt the Big 5 wants to expand. Their goal is to lock out everyone but themselves. They don't want their money pot split up anymore. And this looks to be our only and last chance before the division is split off. We'd have a tougher time trying to get into the ACC or Big 12 on our own. Mr. Aresc...

Re: Biggest game of 2013

I wish CJ had pulled an old-time ploy and brought the players back out onto the Dome field after they'd showered and had them stare at the 63-10 scoreboard for a good, long, while. The team should be VERY ready for some payback. They really took it to us on our home field, no less (with more of the...

Re: Provocative Predictions

The problem is you think small like SC. The reason for the small amount of fans attending games is the prolonged losing. In 98 we had had 15 losing years before TB/RR came along. As the winning continued we built to 38,000 against an unranked team. That's a quick turnaround from the below 5k actual...

Re: Get Ready To Pay and Spend

This truly is the last chance. I have yet to see the scope of commitment that's going to be necessary to be at that level from Tulane. Also, the Big 5 conferences aren't done with expansion either. In order to get to a Big 5 I would have to forsee 5 conferences of 16 teams each. I think 80 teams ge...
