Re: " Why are you wearing green? "

task on the nola board reports actual attendance of 973 (he apparently knows someone with access to the turnstile count). That's not a crowd that's a gathering.

Robert at this point you can't pay people enough to even watch this garbage. It's embarrasing to be seen in a Tulane shirt in public.

I said about 1,050 so I believe 973 is probably correct.

Close I'd say 50. We had about 1,000.

Re: Basketball facility

What actually strikes me is that this wasn't done earlier. We were at a serious recruiting and practice disadvantage before, which I hadn't completely understood until reading this story. It makes it clear -- an IPF for football is way more important than a new stadium. We have a state-of-the-art s...

For what its worth, OrangeBloods.com is reporting that BYU has "said no" to the Big 12 and opted to remain indy. Now, I wouldn't read to much into it from the perspective of BYU 'rejecting them' -- they probably just couldn't come to terms on the... uh... uniqueness of BYU's needs (No sports on Sun...

Now we wait and see if this was just a dog and pony show to get the heat off for the time being. We'll know for sure based on who the new coach is and the salary he and his staff gets.

Re: Big 12 Watch Week 2

I really don't believe an invite to the Big 12 will be forthcoming. I'd put it at 90-10 against. What worries me even more is that our conference will be pilfered by the Big East thus leaving us in a conference with the remainder of the have-nots. I know this is extremely negative, but i'm trying t...
