Re: Beach VB coach out

This is very unfortunate. Wayne is a great coach. After 6 years with the worst pay and worst budget in the conference it has paid its toll. The program was in the top 20 the past 3 years. This year injuries knocked them out of the top 20. Tulane lost a great one. Not sure what is expected with no s...

A 59% cumulative winning percentage How does that compare to Jewett's cumulative winning percentage?

Re: Bylaw 14.5.5.2.9 - and how it will affect Tulane Baseball

The rule puts a premium on having a coach that can attract talent, be it from the high school ranks or other college programs. I seriously doubt that we have such a coach at the moment.

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

No doubt TD can find enough reasons to keep TJ. At the same time there are at least as many reasons to fire him now. The key issue is the fact that TJ isn't going to cut it long term (probably no more than one more year)--so what's the point of dragging this out any longer?

Re: Houston takes the Series

It’s hard to see at this point how Jewett makes it past this season. I would imagine that Troy has started compiling a list of candidates that he would like to interview for the position. The list should start and end within a few miles of campus. We all know that AC is right there waiting for a ch...

Re: Houston Series-Today's DH now to start at 4

As usual, playing Houston late in the season will result in rain-delayed games, which will result in screwing up our pitching rotation for the AAC Tournament. Then just use them for a couple innings next weekend. The games don’t really matter. Our pitching rotation doesn’t matter—they’re all pretty...

Looks like we just got a commitment from a good pitcher out Tampa Jesuit. Please don’t bring up how good our pitching recruits look on perfect ga...

Re: The Academic, or lack of, progress numbers

Very understandable that our "trend" could be downward--much more challenging to stay in school at Tulane. That, combined with our hopeful improvement on the field, will likely lower our APR trend. Of course the APR is as relevant as ranking each school's engineering, poli sci, or anthropology major...

If he’s back, I just hope it’s got nothing to do with his buyout being too much.
If Jewett has a high buy-out clause, then Dannen should not be allowed to negotiate the buy-out clause of any further contracts.

Simple solution. Build our programs and our brand to a level where we earn an invite to the Big 12. Then LSU would have no excuse to not play us. You mean like Texas refuses to play Texas A&? Regardless of what people say, it's really been the other way around for those programs. As for Tulane, it'...

The two key drivers from LSU's perspective are; (1) do they want to increase their profile in New Orleans (for both fans and recruits)? and (2) would their fan base prefer playing Tulane rather than one of the three annual cupcakes?

Re: Do We Keep Jewett?

If we keep Jewett after this season, just because he squeezes out a winning record, we will just be treading water, because next year’s tougher schedule will do him in. So do we want to wait another year to start the rebuild?
