Re: Cowen Interview in The Hullaballoo

Eat sh*t and die, a**hole. This is my state. f**k you. That was somewhat tongue and cheek comment by me, but since you provided such a spirited reply I will play along. First of all, why don't you actually confront my comment? Where does LA stand on: education, infrastructure, healthcare, individua...

Re: Cowen Interview in The Hullaballoo

What about the Hullaballoo, would they be out of line confronting the university Pres. regarding our national rankings in academics and athletics? Good thought, but not likely with Tulane. But do you know what would happen at Vanderbilt or Rice or Northwestern if those schools dropped 15-20 spots i...

RJ: What methods have you discussed with Coach Johnson in terms of additional majors? SC: Really, he hasn't asked for anything.

Re: Searching For Hope

The Rutgers game was not horrible and the Tulsa game was bad but obviously there were distractions and we lost our QB as well. The quality of athletes at the skill positions are fine, just need more seasoning. Losing the captain of the OL and the defense hurts. The OL play is surprising. I knew they...

Re: #51 With a Bullet (U.S. News & World Report)

No mention of the rankings in today's "Tulane Talk". Seriously, I would like to brainstorm how alumni can confront the admin on the academic and athletic performances, we need to have our voice heard and sending a letter is not what I am talking about. We need our questions answered.

The basis for the ranking are explained on the US News website. This is a very disappointing result, I do not understand how Cowen is not held accountable for our stagnant ranking. We lag behind in freshmen retention, graduation rates and peer reviews.

Don't you find it extremely troubling that you feel we need to build an OCS of any kind just to lock the administration into Athletics for the long term? By that statement you are saying that you do not have any faith that Scott Cowen is truly committed to making football and athletics a priority. ...

The answer here is very simple. You build top of the line ( I mean Top 20 in the country) Football Facilities.

Tammy believes 100% of anything that comes out of Cowen's mouth, verbatim. Cowen is a jedi at convincing people that water isn't wet and so it's no surprise that she still thinks the Big 12 is in play. I'm sure Cowen and Dickson believe so as well. And the Big 12 WOULD be interested in Tulane for a...

All in all, that was not a bad opening effort against a legit BCS program. The OL is obviously a major concern, a simple eye test shows that they are not a D1 quality group. Hopefully they can be coached up. As for the fans, what do you expect? The athletic department barely promotes, the team has t...
