Re: Potential head football coach candidates search

Hmmm. My insider says take the Ryan rumors seriously. Saints connections run deep. Not an optimal choice in my book but maybe better than what we have currently.

Re: We do not want Barbara Burke

Does anyone know for a fact that BB located Pierce, vetted him, interviewed him and was primarily responsible for hiring him over other candidates? Many people on this forum and the Yoggies are touting this as her big success at Tulane. I believe it is hard to verify her role in this one successful ...

Re: Potential AD candidates search

What has Burke done over the last 2 years during this dumpster fire of an athletics program? If she was as great as you're stating, she would've had at least some impact or visibility. If we choose Burke or Sidwell, we might as well drop athletics. Like some of the others on these boards, I didn't e...

Where is WindyWave? As predicted, he's been banned from the Yoggie board. Looking for his cogent analysis on what to do with CJ on this board.

Re: We don't want Scott Sidwell

I don't know Scott Sidwell, but everything about Scott in his profile at U San Fran set forth below indicates small-time. Maybe he is an up-and-comer that we should consider in a decade or so. In his profile, there is very little mentioned on improving the w/l competitiveness of the programs; instea...

Re: the RD...PR machine

My God, three long tributes to RD in NOLA.com this week? I completely agree with the others about his lack of wins and losses, but what kills me is that he somehow gets credit for being a superior fundraiser. These stories invariably mention that he is jetting off to Colorado, SanFran, NY, etc, alwa...

Re: Tulane 45 - UCF 31

Just arrived back home from the game. Nice win! Hey, I'm usually hard on the coaching, but the comments on the 2nd team in the fourth quarter when we're up by 4 TDs is a bit of a non-issue. Positives: Both the OLIne and DLine played extremely well. No small feat - we looked better than South Carolin...

Re: Maine Game Day

Completely agree. Many posters on the boards chalked up Houston, Tulsa and SMU as automatic victories for Tulane because of new coaching staffs. Just goes to show that the right coaching (and athletic administration) can win with no excuses.

Re: "FIRE DICKSON" Air Banner

Appears WSJ is $45K and the NYTimes is $24K for a full page advert. Checking with USA Today. If we can't get Fitts and the Board's attention with emails, maybe full page adverts will get their attention.

My wife is taking off the TAF "T" magnetic decal from her car today. Unfortunately I don't blame her. Tulane 2015 football is pathetic and an embarrassment to the the school. Think big guys, USA Today full page ad or WSJ full page ad. I'm in for funding it.

We flew in for this game. We bought into the hype (Just Watch videos). The Emperor has no clothes. Reasonably good crowd for such an odd time and defied most predictions on here for less than 10000. I bet it was at least 18000. That said, 75 pct of students left at half ( and I don't blame them). We...

Okay, I'll take your word on it. I turned off the Rutgers game early last year and also missed most of the Memphis game so maybe they did run it again after the GT score. Hopefully Cutcliffe is not watching any of our summer practice/OC highlight clips!
