Except he didn't say TV moved it. He said it was Tulane's choice in the second to last paragraph.
LMFAO. You can never be wrong. Now you're putting words into our AD's mouth!

It was moved to to numerous factors, and the key players are the AAC and TV.

Game over.

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

I went to the source, and, after discussing my re-joining the Green Wave Club (making a donation) he gave me a rather thorough explanation of how this game was moved to Thursday night. Clearly, the conference and our media partners have a say, and Tulane decided to make the move for reasons he expla...

Re: Will Hall to Tro

this guy sounds more and more like Kliff Kingsbury !!! He might be worse!

Re: SMU beats Tulane 74-65

At least Dunleavy is trying something different. It may or may not work, but something different has to be attempted!

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

All I know is that most weeknight game attendance appears to be horrid, regardless of what teams are playing, regardless of conference, and even regardless the importance of the game in the overall scheme of a conference race. The logistics of doing anything like making a football game after a full...

Re: Will Hall to Troy?

I hope Hall has signed a Tulane contract that calls for a HUGE buyout if he leaves before he completes his first season. If that clause is not in place, I'd hope Fritz says to him "no more interviewing for another position until after the 2019 season." If he does, cut him loose just for interviewing...

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

Does anyone here believe that an AD would move a Saturday game to Thursday night because he believed it would be good for attendance? I'm sorry, but I can't. Despite evidence to the contrary, Troy Dannen must have woken up this morning and said "gee, let's move our season opener to Thursday night, ...

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

It's not easy to find information about the expiring ESPN contract, but I've found some. There's a lot more about the next contract the AAC will negotiate, and ESPN has exclusive rights until the current contract expires. Aresco has the right to talk to other media outlets, but cannot sign a new dea...

Re: Will Hall to Troy?

I don't know how much stock to put into this, but at some point Coach Fritz has to tell Will Hall that he's either here through the 2019 season, or he's gone. No more interviews. This is getting old fast.

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

Do the networks not dictate the days and times for games? If so, why are we arguing about this? Pretty much my point, though I think there's some input by the conference and it's members. But I'm sure ESPN and CBSSN tells the conference, if not the schools directly how many Thursday and Friday nigh...

“our first AAC Divisional Title”
Did I miss the part where we played in the championship?
We were co-champions of the western division, and, despite beating Memphis, lost the three way tiebreaker to them.

Re: Tulane v. FIU Date Announced

I agree, Thursday night is bad for the folks trying to go to the game. But it will have more viewers, especially being the first night of college football of the year. Better exposure overall (though it might only be a minimal increase, depending upon where it's broadcast.) That takes one Thursday n...

Sehic seems to have the best basketball "smarts" on the team. He was the best player returning, and it's puzzling why he's been a no show for most of the season. He lead the AAC in FG% last year and has fallen off tremendously. Maybe he's trying to take on too much? But clearly he needs to be coache...

Wow. These kids might have just quit on Dunleavy. Having watched the whole game, my comments were premature. They didn't quit on Dunleavy, they just don't seem to have any set offensive plays.
