Yes, a BIG announcement (that really has substance to it) .

would be nice prior to 2011, but you are talking about Cowen & Dickson, the two least innovative people that Tulane has. They want to keep their small TU kingdom even smaller, because they can control it better (for themselves). We would all like to see significant changes to the athletic dept occur...

Supporting College Athletics vs. Pro

Jindal and Landrieu did not graduate from Tulane. They could care less about what happens to Tulane athletics.

Nash Roberts has passed away.

Please do not delete this, since it has nothing to do with TU athletics. But, gee, it's about Nash, and he is gone. I'll bet many of us out here grew up with Ol' Nash. Rest in peace, Mr. Roberts. No more hot, humid summer days, and no more worrying about hurricanes. Thanks for calming us down whenev...

EXCELLENT - send this to the Times Pic letters to the editor! ROLL WAVE (and roll Cowen & Dickson out of here now!) Yes, I take pride in Tulane academics.

We are fellow 1974 Alums . . .

JaxWave and I finished Tulane (& Navy ROTC) on the same day and then entered the U.S. Navy. We saw how a football program could be successful at Tulane with the right people. This was from 1970-1973 (3 winning seasons, 2 bowl trips, 1 bowl championship, and a 6-5 season which should have been 7-4 if...

Thanks for setting up this board.

I would take a guess that many of us over here were run off YOGWF because we dared to "fight city hall" (i.e. the Scott Cowen & Rick Dickson athletic dept.). I hope that this turns into a good alternative for us. I do not want to really get into shouting matches over here with anyone. I just want Tu...

Will Toledo at least adopt an offense . . .

which is more like the one we had in 1997-1998? TU can not win by running an offense which has no imagination to it at all. Tulane just does not have the personnel to pound on an opponent each game. Can he put together a defense which could possibly hold a team to below 30 points/game most of the ye...

Just to clarify things about me . . .

I just do not want to come on here and run everyone in the TU Athletic Dept. down. There are some good people who are there, I realize that. But, the lack of leadership that Tr!cky D!ckson has shown during his time here is the main downfall. His hirings have just not come through. Cowen is just in r...

Mack Brown explained it?

He had to change many assistants, or he was going to be fired himself.

As was pointed out before, . . .

For TU to be bowl eligible in 2011, this team will have to win 7 games, since a 13th game will be added to the schedule help cover the expense of traveling to Hawaii next year. Toledo is averaging 3 wins per year, and Tricky Dickson is predicting a 7 win season in 2011? Sorry, I just do not see it. ...

turn it around for the better. If you get the right kind of coaching talent in place, that can occur faster than you think.

P.S. -- Doesn't it look like the "Buddy System" has returned to Tulane football?

I will reserve my definite views on hoops until I see how this program performs in C*USA league games.

The only two recently successful Tulane coaches are Rick Jones and Lisa Stockton . They were here before Dickson was hired. ALL Dickson hires have not got...
