Re: Breaking News Toledo Done!

I never like to see anyone lose their Job...but this was a bad fit...I like Bob, met him on several occasions he and his wife were both nice and gracious people...but the situation Toledo walked into required a younger coach with lot's of energy..a coach that was already known in the State, either ...

Re: Coach's Show

Hey, we're all frustrated but the best place to express your frustration is at the Dome. With less than 1,000 people in attendance every word you say can be heard by CBT on the sidelines. That's the place to make your point. I wouldn't use the coaches show for that.

Re: A team that used to average 3600 fans brought in 64,100

I think everyone can agree the market potential for a Top 25 football program in New Orleans is huge. I try to downplay my feelings on it at times b/c if you tell people Tulane can average 55k+ when we are currently averaging about 2K they immediately stop taking you seriously, but we have so much ...

Re: Tammy: Dickson says Toledo Stays

I think we all know that he's a lame duck regardless. But with SC & RD as long as he still has enough games left on the schedule to win 7 he'll be retained. So after we beat Memphis we'll be 3-5, we then go on the road to ECU loss #6 and then SMU loss #7 at that point Tulane announces that CBT will ...

Re: The whole scene sickens me

Robert, I know this would NEVER happen but how many season tickets do you think we'd sell if we hired Nick Saban? And if we did a big name hire, recruits would come just because of the coach, the fans would then come next. Spend $1.5MM on the best coach and that will go further than a marketing pro...

Re: Tammy: Dickson says Toledo Stays

AustTx you're arguing about semantics, JJ meant that Toledo should've been fired last year. When we talk about the extension most of us are just using it to pile up on the AD's poor decisions. It's really a non issue, he was kept and extended, I think we all understand why he was extended. Most of ...
