Re: Maybe a different approach .. hit SC where it hurts

I would never dissuade a kid from going to Tulane. I love Tulane. Its a great school.

Let's keep some perspective here and not cut off our nose to spite our face here.

Re: Who is the problem--Cowen or Dickson?

Cowen has to go first. If Cowen were to replace Dickson there is no reason to think the replacement would be any better than Dickson. In fact, nobody but a lackey would even consider working for Cowen. Cowen has to control everything, so any competent AD or head coach would by definition not mix we...

Re: last two times in West Point.....

I had a great view of that hail mary TD catch in '07, right at field level along the back of the endzone. Worst case of service academy "home cooking" I have ever seen. And the worst case of bad officiating I had ever seen up until the Toledo-Syracuse "missed" extra point in the...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

I disagree that Cowen himself wants or ever wanted to kill athletics. If that was his agenda he'd have done it in '05 when he freaking nuked half the engineering school and Newcomb college. That was his chance to enforce radical change on Tulane and he took it. You'll note that we committed to rema...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

I get what you are saying OUG, but there's no harm in getting after his ass too. Other than him tuning you and your agenda out completely ("lunatic fringe" ring a bell?) Once we understand that we can't do anything about Cowen's job, the operative question becomes how we can best influenc...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

I think you're missing the point. Equating Scott Cowen's departure with the saving of Tulane University (something he is convinced he has already done) is not so much intended to get him fired but to embarrass him. We know that works. And it's intended to be a salvo against the thing that is most i...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

Who's in charge of hiring a new athletic director??? Cowen. Which is why you pressure him and persuade him to hire a new one. Screaming for him to be hired or comparing him to Hitler ain't gonna work. Scott Cowen. Will. Not. Be. Fired. Over. Athletics. Rinse and Repeat. That doesn't even happen at ...

Re: Oct 22 at the Tulane Homecoming I will be arrested

Guys, I would once again reiterate that we should focus on achievable goals. Scott Cowen is not going to be fired by his board over athletics performance. That doesn't even happen at big schools where board members support athletics. Rick Dickson can be though. If we want change, lets concentrate ou...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

Welcome to the board '05. I just have a hard time believing this is all just on Dickson. Cowen has a major influence on athletics. At the end of the day it doesn't matter whether you think Cowen is part of the problem or not. TU atletics supporters aren't getting rid of Cowen. Even at a huge athlet...

Re: Men's Basketball Schedule is up

This should be a major data point in the evaluation of Rick Dickson's time as AD. I realize this is an unpopular opinion on this forum, but Cowen is not the antichrist as concerns TU athletics. He's pretty agnostic, in my opinion, and has to manage a lot of competing interests. We need Rick Dickson ...

Even though it is not surprising....wow. There shouldn't be any remaining doubt that: 1) T hat guy is a bad person: I recognize his condescending tone from the times he used it on me and I know that he wouldn't dare say such things in person. He's a small person who believes that his $8/month hosti...
