Re: The Never Ending Gift of Cowen

Glad he finally admitted he wanted to go DIII and regrets his decision not to go DIII to this day. Everyone around at that time knew it. Hard to believe he still doesn’t understand what a successful athletic program does for the University as a whole. Ask Alabama and others. Maybe, but Alabama is a...

Re: Schloss on financial aid

But if you have an AD that supports your baseball program to the extent that TCU's former AD did, guess what? They "FIND A WAY" to make it happen. What's changed is the AD, not the rules. It's more complicated than that and we all know it. Relevant issues at play for Tulane: 1. 11.7 Scholarship lim...

Re: Schloss on financial aid

Unless the scholarship rules change, we won’t see high tuition private schools competing for championships very often. Has nothing to do with coaching. Few parents will pay the difference in tuition between the privates and public universities. TCU and Vandy compete for national championships prett...

Re: Lindsey Scott to be a Tiger again :(

Well, as an update, Scott was subpar in the Missouri spring game, as it was so bad that he may not win the back up spot and it also doesn't help him that Missouri has a bunch of QBs. He went 1/8 for 11 yards with 2 INTS. https://www.columbiamissourian.com/sports/mizzou_football/poor-performance-from...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

It’s hard not to at least be a little disappointed that in year 3 of Fritz, Tulane has greater than 50% chance of winning only 1 of its 12 games using one set of advanced metrics. It’s also disappointing that, in year 3, a 6-7 record would be something to truly celebrate. Granted, if Tulane has a b...

Re: Tulane Football Camp end of May

We can thank Ed Orgeron for his participation in our camp. They'll be kids coming in far and wide that otherwise would not have.

It can be done. You could have financial aid and scholarship programs for students for a variety of non athletic reasons (need based, merit based, increasing diversity, veteran programs, etc).

I believe Tulane (and anyone else for that matter) can have as many "recruits" as they want. But only 25/yr. can be on scholarship. I assume the 75 additional Academy "recruits" are not on an athletic scholarship. I believe the Academics do not have tuition but stipends are paid (to all students). ...
